In a resolution that he introduced at the end of May in the United States House of Representatives, a Republican from Texas painted President Biden as an adversary of the Second Amendment rights of the American people.

The resolution was introduced by House Small Business Committee chairman Roger Williams, who emphasized the importance of standing up for the right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Williams also condemned the Biden administration’s persistent attempts to weaken this guarantee.

This resolution criticizes the recent Second Amendment policies of the Biden administration, claiming that they intend to limit the freedom of law-abiding individuals to own and carry guns by making it more difficult for them to do so.

In his resolution, Williams criticized the Bureau of Investigations (BIS) for allegedly curtailing the Second Amendment right listed in the Bill of Rights by imposing restrictions on commercial firearm sales without sufficient justification for their necessity.

Last October, the Department of Corrections (DOC) put a hold on almost all gun exports, stating that it needed to evaluate the possibility of weapons being sent to groups that incite violence, abuse human rights, or encourage criminal activity.

According to Rep. Williams, the Biden administration has disregarded Congress and abused the rule-making process by criminalizing law-abiding gun owners via federal agencies such as the DOJ and ATF.  The resolution references the Second Amendment. Our nation’s founders envisioned that each American should be able to keep and bear arms for the safety of themselves, their families, and their property. 

Furthermore, the resolution denounces President Biden for issuing a series of executive orders that significantly tightened regulations on the lawful acquisition and possession of firearms by regular citizens, going well beyond their statutory and constitutional powers to do so.

Along with twenty-two other Republicans in the Senate, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.),  the ranking member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, demanded that the Biden administration reverse its fatally flawed regulation and the corresponding license revocations. The Department of Justice issued the Rule to deliberately hurt the weapons business, and they expressed their concerns.
