Joe Biden announced that he aims to ‘defeat’ the NRA, which stands in the way of him trampling upon the Second Amendment.
President-elect Joe Biden announced in a statement last week that he will work to “defeat” the NRA, a group dedicated to protecting Second Amendment rights.
The Democrat president-elect is apparently using the goal of ending gun violence as an excuse to limit the rights of law-abiding citizens.
“As President, I pledge to continue to work together with Congresswoman Giffords, and with survivors, families, and advocates across the country, to defeat the NRA and end the epidemic of gun violence in America,” Biden said in the statement.
On Friday, Biden pledged to DEFEAT THE NRA.
Biden wants to ban our semi-auto rifles, tax our guns/mags & more. He knows the only thing standing in his way to DISMANTLE THE 2ND AMENDMENT is NRA.
Gun owners must stay vigilant & be engaged in elections and the legislative process.

Biden has previously called for banning semi-automatic firearms and high capacity magazines. He has also said that he wants to tax owners of semi-automatic firearms for weapons that they already own.
The NRA responded on Twitter by encouraging gun owners to “stay vigilant” and continue to be a part of the legislative process.
All Americans – not only gun owners – should take the advice of the NRA and stay engaged with their communities and elected officials. As we’ve seen with Democrat-led cities like Chicago, tighter gun restrictions have only made violent crime worse. If Joe Biden continues to be at the mercy of radical leftists, more and more of our fundamental rights could be in danger, and we risk a dramatic increase in crime and violence.
