Joe Biden used last week's ten year anniversary of the Gabby Giffords shooting to once again pledge to "defeat the NRA and end the epidemic of gun violence in America."
“Joe Biden has immediately shown his stripes. We predicted that. We knew that's where he would be on the gun issue, but I think it's surprising to see how many proposals have already come out,” says Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights.
Brown says unfortunately, President Trump opened the door for Biden following 2017's mass shooting in Las Vegas.
“He did the bump stock ban via presidential decree,” he says. “That gave Joe Biden all the impetus he needs to say Trump did it and I can do the same thing. And he's going to.”
He says they best they can do is pressure more conservative Democrats, possibly those up for re-election in 2022, to limit the damage.
