Hold on to those guns that you have been stockpiling for years. According to the new Biden Administration, gun owners could face a huge tax for nothing more than expressing their right to own a firearm. Thankfully, Joe Biden hasn’t been named President yet, but here is just a sample of what America could look like under the Democrats.
One of the pillars of being an American is the right to own a gun. It is something many have coined as a rite of passage to becoming an adult. The National Shooting Sport Foundation (NSSF) recently did a survey that found 20 million modern sporting rifles and 150 million gun magazines currently in circulation. Under the new Biden gun law, each of those weapons and magazines could face up to a $200 tax if he is elected.

While some in the Biden Administration claim the former vice president wouldn’t tax current gun owners, his campaign website does state that he wants to end easy access to assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. But how exactly does Biden plan on doing all this? That would be the National Firearms Act. The act would BAN the manufacturing and selling of assault weapons and for owners that already have them – they could either sell it back to the government or face a $200 tax per gun.
For those that aren’t good a math. With the current 170 million sporting rifles in circulation that operate with high capacity magazines, the government could see up to $34 billion for Americans to do nothing but own a rifle. That alone should be more than enough for Joe Biden to be kicked out of office. You know, the office that he and the Democrats stole.
According to a spokesperson with the NSSF, they said, “I think if [Biden and his team] were smart, they would look at those numbers and get an idea of where America stands on gun ownership and gun rights.”
Thanks to a Gallup survey, the Biden Administration could see that support for stricter gun laws is almost at a historic low. Even the support for lesser gun laws saw a rise in the previous years and now stands at 9%. But the survey only matters if Joe Biden would actually take the American people into consideration, which he hasn’t and won’t.
