Susan Rice can’t be trusted to protect Americans’ rights. She failed in upholding her oath of office while being a puppet for Hillary Clinton on Benghazi.

President Joe Biden is installing his chief cover-up agent to run domestic policy for the United States. Susan Rice can’t be trusted to stand up for Americans and steer policy to protect our rights, especially our Second Amendment rights. She failed in upholding her oath of office while being a puppet for Hillary Clinton regarding Benghazi.
It’s a painful lesson we learned with the truth about what caused of deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods. Rice knowingly lied to cover up the mistakes made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then Vice President Biden and President Barack Obama, who failed to fulfil their duty and protect the lives of Americans overseas. Ambassador Rice made the rounds on five Sunday morning talk shows spreading lies of how the coordinated attack on a U.S. compound was sparked by a video no one ever saw nor heard.
Rice failed us on Sept. 12, 2012, and she will fail us again as director of the White House Domestic Policy Council. She will be in the unique position to shape, sharpen, and spearhead the Biden-Harris administration’s attack on constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights.
During his presidential campaign, Biden made it crystal clear what he intends to do to the Second Amendment. It will become a doormat upon which he’ll wipe his feet as he walks into the White House. Rice will be the one who puts it there for him.
President Biden called firearm manufacturers “the enemy” in 2019 during the primary debates. These are the same manufacturers who made the firearms in my gun safe and the firearms I used to defend my life and the lives of fellow Americans in Benghazi. These are the manufacturers who make the firearms for our military and police officers to keep our nation and communities safe. I’ve faced off against the enemy. American firearm manufacturers aren’t it.
A Biden administration proposes to confiscate the more than 20 million modern sporting rifles that are in circulation today. Those include the AR-15-style rifles they purposely mislabel as “assault rifles.”
They know they’ll never get law enforcement to agree to round them up, much less convince freedom-minded Americans to willingly surrender their firearms to the Biden gun control agenda. That’s why Biden has floated the notion of reclassifying them under the 1934 National Firearms Act and slap a punitive tax on each rifle and every magazine.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the firearm industry trade association, conservatively estimates there are 20 million rifles and more than 150 million magazines that hold more than 10 rounds (that’s about 50 percent of all magazines). So law-abiding Americans would be hit with a tax bill of more than $34 billion for the privilege to keep what they already lawfully own and have a constitutional right to keep.
On top of all that, a Biden administration would require photos, fingerprints, notification to the local chief law enforcement officer, and another background check for this “privilege.” Every single law-abiding American who owns an AR-15 would be put on a secret government watch list.
There’s more. Biden would force states to adopt gun licensing schemes, turn the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) into an agency that revokes licenses from gun retailers for a single minor paperwork error, criminalize the private transfer of firearms, reinstitute gun grab policies seen during the Obama-Biden administration when they used the Social Security Administration to eliminate gun rights, require unworkable and unreliable so-called “smart-gun” technology on all guns sold, and repeal the law that keeps activist lawyers from filing harassing lawsuits against firearm manufacturers for the criminal acts committed by individuals. That’s like letting drunk driving victims sue Ford.
Guiding all this will be Rice. She’ll be heading Biden’s gun control dream team. That includes naming California’s Democratic Attorney General Xavier Becerra to the head of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. He has no health experience but knows how to call gun control “a health-care crisis” and defend unconstitutional gun grabs from Californians. There will also be Judge Merrick Garland, who has ruled from the bench at every opportunity to deny gun rights.
This all fits in neatly with Rice’s personal ideas on enacting stricter gun control. She supports a ban on Americans owning semiautomatic modern sporting rifles, the most-popular-selling centerfire rifles today. She wants to make it a crime for a neighbor to sell another neighbor a gun. She was vetted by the antigun billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety to be a possible vice-presidential candidate.
Rice won’t take the job to protect the American people. She’s proven she can’t, or won’t. She’ll be the one to set the Second Amendment on the doorstep of the White House while gun control groups march in. Rice will abandon our God-given rights just as quickly as she abandoned me in Benghazi. Then she’ll spin it on Sunday morning talk shows.Mark “Oz” Geist is a member of the Annex Security Team that fought the Battle of Benghazi, Libya, from September 11 to September 12, 2012.
