' anti-gun record explained:

Bipartisan Safer Communities Act

Joe Biden worked with Republicans like John Cornyn in 2022 to pass the "Bipartisan Safer Communities Act," which Biden referred to as "the most significant gun [control] legislation to pass Congress in 30 years." Tony Gonzales joined with Democrats to make it law!

Here's what it does:

Authorizes $750 million in federal funding for state "red flag" gun confiscation programs without due process protections. This funding is through an existing grant program, which the bill expands to cover state "red flag" programs, like dangling a carrot in front of legislators with a stick.1

Authorizes $300 million to dump juvenile records into NICS and start reporting on them without due process. $200 million would go to the states to cover their new juvenile records reporting requirement, and $100 million would go to meet the "additional resource needs" of the NICS system. This is a massive expansion of the NICS database.2

BANS gun possession based on juvenile records for all gun owners. This is retroactive, so if a gun owner committed a disqualifying crime at age 16 and he's now 45, he would lose his gun rights as soon as this bill was enacted and would need to dispose of his guns.3

Opens up the floodgates for prosecution of law-abiding gun dealers. The new language defining "dealer" means that the FFL could be prosecuted for "dealing without a license" for selling guns later used in crimes. It is unclear how far this language goes and if it would apply to guns later sold to a criminal third party. In addition, if the FFL had "reasonable cause to believe" the gun will be used in a crime - whatever constitutes "reasonable cause" - he would be prosecuted under the new definition of gun trafficking.4

Criminalizes more private gun sales. This bill expands the definition of FFL to someone who sells guns to "predominantly earn a profit" instead of someone who does it to earn a living. This greatly expands the possibility of prosecution for dealing without a license for private gun sales.5

Temporarily DENIES Firearms Purchases for 18-20-year-olds by implementing a three-day waiting period on purchase, extending it to 10 days if NICS found any hint of a "problematic" juvenile record. NICS would ask the state/local repositories for details on juvenile mental health/criminal records during that time.6

STRIPS gun rights due to toxic dating relationships or bad breakups. Misdemeanor gun violence convictions involving current or former "dating partners" (defined vaguely enough to cover close platonic friendships) would result in loss of gun rights.7

Opens the door for senior citizen gun bans via suspicious funding for the Medicare Improvement Fund. The bill leaves the amount and the purpose blank.8

STRIPS gun rights for adults based on mental health care after the age of 16. If a juvenile is involuntarily sent to a mental health hospital - a decision often made by state social services authorities, not the parents - his gun rights would be stripped for the rest of his life.9

EXPANDS the NICS Gun Ban Registry, by dumping decades-old juvenile records into the system and disqualifying gun purchases for otherwise law-abiding adults. What state records would qualify, and which would not are left unclear and would be up to each state.10
