Above all else, an Attorney General, regardless of party, is supposed to uphold the rule of law and our Constitution.
That will not happen if Merrick Garland is confirmed, at least not when it comes to our Second Amendment rights.
During his confirmation hearing, Garland made it quite clear that Biden is pro-gun control, and he will support the administration’s effort to pass laws that will forward that agenda.
Second Amendment Assault
The role of the Justice Department is to enforce laws, not to further the agenda of an administration.
For all the flack William Barr took about being Trump’s lapdog, he proved by not going after Clinton or Comey that he would not politicize the office.
He did this even though there was glaring evidence that would have enabled him to do just that, especially in the case of James Comey.
Garland is not pulling punches regarding Biden’s gun control agenda.
Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) asked Garland, “Do you support banning of certain types of firearms?”
Garland responded, “Well, as I’m sure you know, the president is a strong supporter of gun control and has been an advocate all his professional life on this question.
“The role of the Justice Department is to advance the policy program of the administration as long as it is consistent with the law.
“Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Among Joe Biden’s plans is a buyback program, which is actually a gun seizure program.
His website states, “Joe Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons … will enact universal background check legislation, requiring a background check for all gun sales … and buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities.”
Biden has hinted that he would use Executive Orders if necessary, bypassing Congress because he knows legislation like this will never pass the Senate.
So, Garland has confirmed that whatever laws Joe Biden wants to create, he will enforce, which is not exactly an endearing quality for a possible Attorney General.
Garland will more than likely pass because he will get the vote of every Democrat, but we need to pay attention to the Republicans that vote in favor of him as well.
If and when Biden enacts his gun seizure, every single one of them needs to be held accountable.
