January 1, Republicans Fight Back: Repealing Biden’s Controversial Gun Regulation



Congressional Republicans plan to introduce legislation to repeal a recent Biden administration regulation. This regulation expands federal background checks for gun purchases. The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a rule, “Definition of ‘Engaged in the Business’ as a Dealer in Firearms.” It extends federal background checks to gun purchases made at gun shows, online websites, and between private individuals.

The rule faces strong opposition from congressional Republicans and gun rights groups. Republican Sens. John Cornyn of Texas and Thom Tillis of North Carolina plan to introduce legislation to repeal the rule after it comes into effect. “Sens. Cornyn and Tillis plan to introduce a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act to overturn this unconstitutional rule,” a spokesperson for Cornyn said.

A companion bill will be introduced in the House of Representatives by Republican Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia. The Congressional Review Act (CRA) allows Congress to repeal federal regulations within the last 60 legislative days after they come into effect.

Cornyn and Tillis argue that the rule is not based on the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act (BSCA). The DOJ cited this act in their press release. “The vast majority of the ATF rule announced today is not based on the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, and any claim otherwise from the administration is an outright lie,” Cornyn and Tillis said in a statement.

Gun rights groups, such as the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Advocacy (NRA-ILA), claim that the expanded definition of “engaged in the business” of dealing in firearms will effectively prevent private gun sales. “The ‘engaged in the business’ rule is designed to circumvent the U.S. Congress to criminalize, or give the appearance of criminalizing, the private transfer of firearms,” the NRA-ILA said in a statement.

    For the GOP to try an repeal gun dealer licensing and background checks is the most ludicrous move they could make! It would show just how little they care about law and order and the safety of the citizens of the country both young and old. The GOP needs to start doing what is best for the people they supposedly represent and not for themselves and definitely not for Donald Trump. Democracy must prevail.

    Joe Biden is the tyrant the founding fathers referred to in creating the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.

    And, John Cornyn – you made your bed. Sleep in it.

    All gun control laws and background checks are unconstitutional and need to be repealed. If you can vote your constitutional right to own and possess firearms should be restored. The constitution didn’t grant us the right to keep and bear arms, it was meant to protect the right of all citizens to own and bear arms,as natural law allows for the individual to keep and bear arms for personal protection. It is also meant to protect against a tyrannical Government as we are headed into worldwide.

    Senator Cornyn is nothing but a TRAITOR to his constituents but a dyed in the wool Democrat/Communist. He changes his position constantly to satisfy the status quo. and to keep his job. No cahoneys!! I would NEVER vote for him!!!!

    While I generally like Cornyn, this is ridiculous! We need MORE checks, not fewer.

    Where does the ATF get its authority to control the lives of the American people? Their is no possible way the ATF could ever find or track down the millions of guns that have been legally purchased, sold to relatives or friends 2-3 or more times legally without transfer of ownership. Just another of the Biden administration gun grab that cannot be allowed to become law.
