Jim Jordan put Merrick Garland on notice for this disturbing scheme

Attorney General Merrick Garland is completely out-of-control.

But one move crossed a major red line.

And Jim Jordan put Merrick Garland on notice for this disturbing scheme.

Joe Biden’s backdoor gun control scheme

While President Joe Biden scored a major victory on gun control in Congress with the help of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), the Left’s major priorities like an assault weapons ban went unfulfilled.

Since Congress is currently a roadblock to passing the most extreme gun control measures, the Left decided to find another sinister way to target the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding Americans.

Starting in 2016, the FBI conducted a secret campaign to convince Americans to illegally waive their gun rights under federal law.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reported that FBI agents in multiple states visited homes and other locations where they asked Americans to sign a form admitting that they are a danger to themselves and lack the “mental capacity adequately to contract or manage” their daily lives.

After signing the form, the individuals were permanently placed on the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), the background system designed to prevent prohibited persons from purchasing firearms.

Legal experts say the forms used by the FBI are questionable since they lack the proper Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control numbers on them, which are required for collecting information from the public.

Under the Gun Control Act of 1968, individuals can be banned from owning guns if they are “adjudicated as a mental defective or have been committed to a mental institution.”

Leading gun rights group, Gun Owners of America (GOA), asked the FBI and the Justice Department to “remove” these individuals from the prohibited persons list for gun ownership because of the legally dubious nature of the move.

“A person who signs an FBI form voluntarily has neither been ‘adjudicated’ of anything nor ‘committed’ anywhere,” GOA said. “Indeed, if such persons had met the Congressional test for ‘prohibited persons’ under any other federal prohibitor, there would have been no need to coerce them into signing the form.”

“More fundamentally, however, a person does not lose his Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms simply because he signed a government form purporting to relinquish them,” GOA added.

Jim Jordan is fighting back for gun owners

Jim Jordan (R-OH) is a leading GOP watchdog in Congress and one of the biggest critics of the out-of-control FBI.

Jordan called the scheme “frightening” and said it fit with a “pattern” of lawless behavior in the FBI.

Jordan said the FBI’s abuse against gun rights was “just one more fact” about the Bureau “that should raise all kinds of concerns with Americans who value the Bill of Rights.”

“It looks like they were cutting corners here,” Jordan added. “And not to mention just fundamentally doing something that’s not appropriate.”

Jordan is vowing to investigate the politicization of the Justice Department under Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“This is part of the political nature of the Justice Department,” Jordan said. “So, if in fact we win in 57 days, next Congress we are definitely looking into the whole political nature.”

Congressional Republicans can hold Merrick Garland’s lawless Justice Department accountable if they retake Congress in November.
