Gun Owners of America and Gun Owners Foundation are once again taking the ATF to court.
GOA and GOF just filed a federal lawsuit against the ATF’s proposed “Ghost Gun” and Gun Registry Final Rule, which is slated to take effect August 24.
This rule imposes near-universal gun owner registration and restricts the ability to make your own guns at home—a tradition which is older than our Republic.
After the recent Supreme Court decision that reaffirmed our Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms, we are optimistic that we can win this fight.
But I know it’s going to be a lengthy and expensive legal battle, similar to what we’ve gone through in our bump stock case, which is on appeal to the Supreme Court.
The ATF and their gun control lawyers will be fighting us tooth and nail in hopes that they can keep dragging out this legal battle until our funds are depleted.
That’s why YOUR support will be essential to keep us in the fight for however long it takes—especially since this battle may end up at the Supreme Court.
I should note that we have already put the ATF on the defensive.
Thanks to activists like you who sent over 65,000 angry comments to the ATF, the rule was HEAVILY modified from its original proposed version.
Here are three of the most significant “victories” that our pressure campaign against the ATF achieved:
You will not have to serialize (read: register) every new magazine, barrel, or trigger that you use to upgrade your existing firearm.
You will not have to register a firearm simply because you Cerakote or color your firearm.
And you will have greater protection when having a gun dealer check out or modify your privately made firearm—as now, the requirement to serialize a homemade firearm has been limited to only apply when a dealer takes that gun into his inventory overnight.
In fact, the ATF explicitly concedes that they watered down the regulations because of the “numerous commenters” like you who opposed them.
Now, I want to be as clear as possible…
…While it’s good that the ATF rules were modified, a “watered down” assault on our rights is still an assault on our rights.
That’s why our legal team at Gun Owners Foundation will keep fighting until the ATF’s ENTIRE assault on our rights has been gutted.
Gun Owners Foundation firmly believes in fighting based on the text and history of the Second Amendment.
But to win this fight, we’ll certainly need support from our members like you.
