The Taliban’s seizure of Afghanistan and their door-to-door search for weapons are about to play roles in the battle between President Joe Biden and Second Amendment groups.
One group, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, said it plans to promote videos comparing the Taliban’s move to the Biden administration’s plans to ban some guns.
“One of the first things Joe Biden did after taking office was push his gun-ban agenda,” said Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “One of the first things the Taliban did after taking Kabul was go door to door seizing firearms. Biden says banning so-called assault weapons and 9 mm pistols will make the country safer. The Taliban is telling people they don’t need guns because they are safe. Those are some very alarming parallels.”
His group and others have been fighting the administration’s plans to end sales of AR-15-style rifles and magazines that hold over 10 cartridges. Immediately, they are working on a Justice Department move to charge a retroactive $200 fee on millions of AR-15-style short-barrelled “pistols.”
