, a progressive host and former press secretary for President Joe Biden, voiced deep concerns this weekend about the climate of fear and violence, supposedly towards journalists, following the near assassination of former President .

During an appearance on ' “” with , Psaki addressed the tension and the possibility of violence in the wake of the assassination attempt. She emphasized that attributing the attack to Democrats and the media only heightens fears and escalates the risk.

According to publicized documents, the has collected data on tens of millions of responsible gun owners in the past 12 months.

The memos have sparked fears that the White House will use that information to severely restrict the Second Amendment.

The Federalist reports:

According to the documents obtained by the Free Beacon, Biden's ATF collected 54.7 million out-of-business paper records and 887,000 electronic records detailing gun transactions and other private firearm information in the 2021 fiscal year alone. These records are reportedly kept in a federal warehouse managed by the ATF in West Virginia.

The large-scale stockpiling not only signals the Biden administration's eagerness to crack down on gun owners across the nation but has also concerned gun store owners that the ATF is overstepping its bounds by creating a federal database recording gun owner information. The creation of a national directory is strictly prohibited under the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986, but an ATF spokesman claimed to the Free Beacon that “those out of business records do not constitute an initiation or continuation of any federal gun registry.”

While gun shops are required under the Gun Control Act of 1968 to turn over their records to the ATF when they go out of business, they are not required to keep their reports beyond a 20-year period. The Biden administration and anti-gun groups, however, want to change that and are largely in favor of heavier federal oversight that mandates a digitized registry that can be searched.

If a national database is created, thousands of gun owners could be sought out by the administration to “register or destroy” any firearms or related equipment that the Democrat administration seeks to restrict or even ban.

Is there justification, under any circumstances, for a national gun registry? Tell us what you think in the comments, and let us know what other Second Amendment-related content you'd like to see!

    This effort at creating a database is scary. Look what they did in California releasing gun owners’ personal info! What’s next?!

    The Chinese were some of the first peoples to keep records of gun owners. In fact, prior to WW2, they were some of the best record keepers. They tracked briths, deaths, property ownership, and yes, firearms ownership. When the Japanese invaded China. they quickly realized that every city had a government office with all this information. So, the Japs quickly raided these offices and rounded up all civillian firearms. Shortly after rounding up any civillian firearms, they went back and killed the civillians who owned them. They did so because, the Japanese were keenly aware that the gun isnt the weapon; the man who owns the gun is the true weapon.
