Can the Government Take My Guns?

January 28, 2022

Can the Government take my guns?  That’s the questions everyone is asking these days.  On April 5, 1933, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 6102, requiring Americans to surrender their gold (other than gold jewelry, gold coins, and a very small amount of gold bullion) to the government for payment of the then prevailing value of the gold surrendered.

If you could be forced to surrender gold by executive order, is it a stretch to think that guns could be handled the same way? To date, a mandatory buyback has never been attempted.

One failed 2020 presidential candidate memorably proclaimed during a debate in Houston, “Hell yes, we are going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” Could this candidate have been thinking of a possible executive order?

After the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012, President Barack Obama issued several executive actions involving gun control. These actions included:

  1. Directing federal agencies to share background check information with one another.
  2. Giving money to the states for sharing background check information.
  3. Reviewing the criteria of who should be prohibited from purchasing, possessing, or transferring firearms and ammunition.
  4. Launching a “safe and responsible” gun ownership campaign.
  5. Requiring federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
  6. Clarifying that doctors, under the Affordable Care Act, may ask their patients about guns in their homes.

Executive orders are a powerful tool of government that can easily change depending on the particular Commander-in-Chief and their desired policies.

What will Biden do with his power? With over half of Americans voicing their disapproval on how President Biden is handling gun laws, your guess is as good as ours.

But given his recent comments, law-abiding gun owners should be on the lookout for an executive order that might possibly impact their daily lives.
