An expert on the Second Amendment has warned that President Biden has launched a “four-prong” attack against the Second Amendment and is already planning to dismantle it.
The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution provides Americans the right to keep and bear arms. It supported individuals with the natural rights of self-defense and resistance to oppression.
However, last week, a top expert in the second amendment stated that Biden had launched a “four-prong” attack against this right.

Alan Gottlieb, the founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, stated in an interview, “It’s a four-prong attack against firearms ownership in the country.” He added, “One is universal background check is really a universal registration system. Second is banning of assault weapons and then defining assault weapons as almost any semi-automatic firearm.”
Gottlieb continued, “Third is banning magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, you know, again, hurts people twice for self-defense in our country, and then attacking the firearms industry so that any criminal that goes out and misuses a gun, the gun manufacturer can be sued for it, it’s going to put the industry out of business, and nobody can buy a gun.”
In addition to this, Gottlieb also added that that is just what Biden wants legislatively, as he also has plans when it comes to executive orders. “There’s a lot more of those coming to and appearing. Some might be coming down the pike pretty soon,” Gottlieb said,
Gottlieb’s remarks come after Biden called for Congress last week to ban “assault weapons” as well as “high-capacity” magazines.

The call to ban “assault weapons” is effectively a call to ban semi-automatic firearms and ban “high-capacity” magazines. It is also regarded as the call to ban magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds. Although Biden has explicitly declared that he wants to ban magazines that can hold “multiple bullets,” which is basically all magazines, this call would effectively be a call to ban the overwhelming majority of firearms.
Later on, Gottlieb also stated that Biden has series of executive orders that he is considering to break the American’s Second Amendment rights.
In relation to this, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed this week that Biden has a “range of actions at his disposal” when it comes to the Second Amendment rights and that Biden has not “ruled out” using executive action.
Gottlieb also added that he is concerned about how Biden would his executive powers to redefine firearms and make it harder for Americans to get firearms.
If Biden tries to make that move, Gottlieb said that the Second Amendment Foundation would take action and immediately sue the administration.

In addition to this, Gottlieb also warned that another area of major concern is that Biden could try to hide his gun control plan into a separate “must-pass” piece of legislation, which is what former President Bill Clinton did to get his gun ban passed.
With regard to pro-gun activists and conservatives can push back on the Biden administration’s anti-firearms agenda, Gottlieb suggested that the people have to regularly call their state and federal level representatives. This way, they will let them know where they stand on the issue, which is something that they should do on a regular basis.
Gottlieb continued, “likewise, get involved engaged with all the state national gun rights groups across the country. You know, we can’t put all our guns in one basket.”
