Biden Campaign Manager Has Long History Against Freedom

It should not be a surprise that Jen O’Malley Dillon, Joe Biden’s campaign manager—and, should he be inaugurated in January, his deputy chief of staff—supports every gun-control proposal Biden has for your rights; the thing is, her history of anti-gun stances actually goes far beyond her work for the Biden campaign.

Before becoming Biden’s campaign manager last March, O’Malley Dillon was in the same position for Biden’s purported gun-control czar-to-be, Beto O’Rourke. That’s right, she was running the campaign for the guy who said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15,” during a primary presidential debate. 

Weeks later, O’Malley Dillon appeared in a video for the O’Rourke campaign in which she propped up Beto’s “mandatory buyback” (confiscation) plan for what she and O’Rourke deliberately mislabel as “assault weapons.” Said a “buyback” would have affected “15 or 16 million” rifles, by her estimates.

“We are actually the only campaign with a plan … that supports mandatory buybacks of weapons of war. An assault weapon ban is very, very important and we need to have it, but that only takes weapons of war off the streets in the future. It does nothing for weapons of war that are currently out there,” said O’Malley Dillon in the video.

She reiterated this claim last fall after O’Rourke tweeted, “We need to buy back every single assault weapon.” In response, O’Malley Dillon tweeted, “No more weapons of war on our streets.”

Though O’Malley Dillon’s efforts were wildly unsuccessful with O’Rourke, once he made banning the most-commonly owned rifles the cornerstone of his campaign, she brought her ideas with her to the Biden campaign. 

As reported by America’s 1st Freedom, a Biden administration would, simply put, be at war with our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. His campaign website lists his desire to reinstate the “Federal Assault Weapons Ban” of 1994. Beyond this, he follows O’Malley Dillon’s desire to not only ban the future sale of these rifles, but to make it functionally untenable to own whatever guns they can jam into this political definition.

This would be accomplished by way of a “voluntary” turn-in program for currently-owned semi-automatics, while imposing a registration and taxation scheme for those who do not wish to surrender their firearms to federal authorities.

By O’Malley Dillon’s estimate, this would cost law-abiding gun owners upwards of three billion dollars; however, new data from the National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates that the count of rifles O’Malley Dillon and Biden would like to ban and confiscate is closer to 20 million. Not wanting to stop there, Biden also plans to tax magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, which are standard to these rifles and most modern handguns.

That same NSSF data projects that more than 150 million of these magazines are owned by American citizens. What’s the final bill for such a total, including the rifles mentioned above? It amounts to over $30 billion. And that’s not considering the massive cost to our freedom.

O’Malley Dillon’s history is one filled with anti-gun radicalism and, should Biden be elected, she will take her anti-freedom agenda to the White House.
