Summary of Previous Intel Brief

In the previous brief, we explored the gun registration that Biden wants to enact as President. That included the reinstatement of the ‘94 weapons ban. That prohibited the sale of AR-15’s and magazines considered to have “large capacities”. His administration looks to reinstate this legislation along with a major caveat: reclassification of the AR-15 so that it falls under the ATF and to be included as a NFA item. Which would lead to the federal regulation of the AR platform. While also opening up the potential to regulate more pistols, rifles, and shotguns under the NFA.

First, we will investigate Biden’s gun policy to eliminate the sell of firearms and ammunition online. The administration also seeks to create a national licensing system for firearms and ammunition.

This administration’s plan is to remove the ability for the firearm industry to sale firearms and ammunition online. While restricting access of firearms and ammunition to law abiding citizens. This is a strategic move designed to weaken the firearms industry and community as a whole.

Below, are excerpts from Biden’s website on policies mentioned before. These potential policies show us how his administration plans to eliminate sales of firearms and ammunition online. While creating a national system to licensing purchasing of firearms and ammunition. Let’s dive into potential elimination of firearm and ammunition sales online.

The elimination of online sales of firearms and ammunition.

Biden will enact legislation to prohibit all online sales of firearms, ammunition, kits, and gun parts in the U.S.

The Biden Administration is taking this policy directive from the policy initiative from the March For Our Lives organization. There policy initiatives seeks to end the sale of firearms and ammunition online. This is apart of their High Standards of Gun Ownership framework. This initiative also includes limiting firearm purchases to once a month. Increasing the age to buy a firearm to 21. Along with adding a national licensing to purchase firearms or ammunition.

This policy initiative is designed to weaken the and limit the ability for firearm manufacturers and accessory makers to sale their products. While eliminating and limiting the capability of gun owners can purchase firearms, parts, accessories, and ammunition. This action strict limits the profit and potential business growth of these companies. Allowing the industry to only sell firearms through government approved outlets.

The ATF has already giving guidance to these firearm manufacturers what can be sold online without the need of an Federal Firearms License (FFL). Those items are firearm parts and accessories because they do not make a complete firearm.

Next, any firearm that is sold online is required to be sent to an FFL for transfer to the buyer. The buyer must come to the gun store to pickup the firearm. Once there the buyer must fill out and submit and 4473 background check to the FFL. When the buyer passes the background check he will be able to obtain the firearm they purchased. If there is any question or discrepancy the gun shop will hold the item until the issue is resolved or advised the person to get a refund if the discrepancy can’t be solved.

Firearm and Ammunition Licensing

The Biden Administration seeks to propose new legislation that will incentivize states to set up gun licensing programs. These programs will be paid for through grants from the federal government.

Below, is excerpt from Biden’s policy on creating licensing purchases in all 50 states.

Give states incentives to set up gun licensing programs.

Biden will enact legislation to give states and local governments grants to require individuals to obtain a license prior to purchasing a gun.

These policy initiatives combine to restrict your access to buying a firearm. You will only be eligible to purchase a firearm after the completion of licensing and a prior course.

This legislation seeks to create a system for licensing of firearms and ammunition. In system in which you must obtain a national firearm license to purchase firearms, firearm parts, and ammunition. While removing your ability to do so online. Only giving you federally approved outlets to buy firearms. These restrictions are meant to limit your access to firearms. While making the process of owning firearms convoluted and burdensome to existing and new gun owners.

Licensing of Ammunition

In the High Standards Of Gun Ownership they discuss a national firearms and ammunition licensing system. When discussing licensing system it states, “Gun violence has indirect and direct costs of hundreds of billions of dollars each year, and any responsible gun owner would pay into the national licensing system for the ability to possess and use firearms. In addition, we would impose higher fees on the bulk purchase of firearms and ammunition, which have been predicates to the misuse of firearms.”

They key part of that initiative is the second part. When it’s discussing taxing and discouraging the buying of ammo with higher prices. So, this system would restrict your ability to own and use your legally owned firearms. While imposing extra fees on ammunition and bulk ammunition purchases. Which translates to putting restrictions on how much ammunition you can buy at a time. Which could hypothetically lead to how much ammunition you can have in your possession at a time. This initiative leads to a slippery slope of abuse, restrictions, and the erosion of our rights.

What Does it All Mean?

The objective of these policies is to create a database of all the firearms owners in the nation. In essence creating another avenue to a firearm registry in this nation. While creating a national system telling who has the privilege to possess firearms and ammunition in this country. While also taxing you on your gun ownership and ammunition you purchase.

All, these potential actions conflict with the second amendment and seek to limit your rights as a gun owner.

Next, we will delve into Red Flag Laws and it’s expansion.

Red Flag Laws

What are Red Flag Laws?

Red Flag laws are gun control laws that permit police or family members to petition a state court to order the temporary removal of firearms from a person who may present a danger to themselves or others.

Currently, there are 17 states with red flag legislation on its books. The Biden Administration seeks to incentivize the remaining states to introduce red flag legislation in their states.

Below, is his administration outline on incentivizing red flag legislation.

Incentivize state “extreme risk” laws.

Extreme risk laws, also called “red flag” laws, enable family members or law enforcement officials to temporarily remove an individual’s access to firearms when that individual is in crisis and poses a danger to themselves or others. Biden will incentivize the adoption of these laws by giving states funds to implement them. And, he’ll direct the U.S. Department of Justice to issue best practices and offer technical assistance to states interested in enacting an extreme risk law.

Biden plans on assisting local and state government and agencies with resources to implement these red flag laws nationwide.

The dangers of red flag laws

First, a red flag law request could be put in by a neighbor, coworker, family member or law enforcement. Any family member or associate with a grudge could put in a red flag order. Leading to the confiscation of your firearms by authorities. These claims are made in court without anyway for you to defend yourself against the allegations brought against you. Which could lead to damaging and false statements made against you to have your firearms taken. Main states have provision about filing false statements in regards to these red flag laws to deter that behavior and abuse of the system. Yet, there is still that potential of abuse.

Second, these laws confiscate your firearms without due process. This law removes due process from the firearm owner. The firearm owner has no ability to confront his/her accuser. A judge order is based on the testimony of the accuser(s).

Lastly, the court orders the guns to be removed by police. From there it is up to the defendant to prove their mental acuity to have his/her firearms returned to them. If the courts are not satisfied they keep their firearms indefinitely or until the defendant proves he or she is in sound mind to posses them. Stripping the defendant of due process based on someone else testimony to a court.

These red flag laws encroach on Americans freedom to keep and bear arms by removing due process from the owner. Due process must be granted.

Finally, we will explore increase funding and restructuring of the ATF.

The Biden Administration seeks to increase funding and restructure the ATF to enforce new and old gun laws.

Below, is the Administration guidance on funding and restructuring of the ATF.

Reform, fund, and empower the U.S. Justice Department to enforce our gun laws.

Biden will direct his Attorney General to deliver to him within his first 100 days a set of recommendations for restructuring the ATF and related Justice Department agencies to most effectively enforce our gun laws. Biden will then work to secure sufficient funds for the Justice Department to effectively enforce our existing gun laws, increase the frequency of inspections of firearms dealers, and repeal riders that get in the way of that work.

President-Elect Biden plans to fund and restructure the ATF as apart of his first 100 day plan. He looks to get recommendations from his cabinet on how to restructure and strengthen the ATF to enforce the law. This bolstering of the ATF will increase the frequency of inspection of FFLs and to those in possession of NFA items.

Recently, congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) introduce H.R. 121. This legislation looks to hire 200 new ATF agents to help with the enforcement of gun laws. In accordance with Biden Administration policy on strengthening and restructuring the ATF. The potential growth of the ATF is on its way. While plans and restructuring will be coming from the President Biden on how to enact his gun legislation.

These policies listed today seek to stifle the industry and community. The Biden Administration seeks to ban the sale of firearms and ammunition, create a national licensing systems for firearms and ammunition, and bolster the authority and strength of the ATF.


As, we have discussed previously the Biden Administration taking a cascading and holistic approach to gun policies. His administration seeks to enact legislation to put in place a weapons ban, create a firearm registry, and impose a mandatory weapon buy back. While seeking to further expand restrictions on gun owners in America by banning online sales of firearms, creating a national licensing system, and bolstering the ATF at the same time. The approach is holistic, methodical, and tactical. The policies and initiatives of the incoming administration endeavor to restrict our constitutional rights.
