Detailed Breakdown Of ATF’s Brace Ruling

From Enbloc Press:

The new rule will change how the legality of brace-equipped firearms is decided. The change will go into effect as soon as 08F is entered into the federal register, and, once law, affected gun owners will have 120 days to register their newly reclassified brace-equipped weapons as short barreled rifles (SBRs) or to modify, surrender, or destroy their firearms (lol. lmao, even).

ATF Ruling Puts Millions of Gun Owners In Jeopardy

From The Reload:

The agency announced plans to publish the final version of their rule reclassifying pistol braces, a popular firearm accessory, on Friday. The rule, which President Joe Biden requested as part of his efforts to unilaterally reform gun laws, would effectively ban the use of braces unless registered with the ATF. Anyone who does not comply with the rule could be subject to upwards of ten years in federal prison despite the agency previously ruling the braces were legal multiple times over the past decade.

Court Stops Bump Stock Ban

From Ammoland:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit overwhelmingly ruled that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) overstepped its authority when it published a Final Rule that classified bump stocks as “machineguns.” The Trump-era ban was in reaction to the heinous crimes by a depraved murderer in Las Vegas in 2017. The murderer used bump stocks in the commission of his crimes.

NICS Continues To Fail, Time To Abolish It

From The Truth About Guns:

The Department of Homeland Security did not consistently comply with NICS requirements from July 2019 to June 2021. FBI NICS examiners rely on NICS data to determine whether a person is eligible to purchase a firearm. However, DHS components did not submit the data to DOJ, as the United States Code and Code of Federal Regulations require.

ATF Says “80%” Frames Are Firearms, Require 4473

From The Truth About Guns:

Partially complete Polymer80, Lone Wolf, and similar striker-fired semiautomatic pistol frames, including, but not limited to, those sold within parts kits, are regulated by the Gun Control Act (GCA) because they have reached a stage of manufacture where they “may readily be completed, assembled, restored, or otherwise converted” to a functional frame.

There Are More Armed Bureaucrats Than Marines

From The Federalist:

A report issued last year by the watchdog group Open The Books, “The Militarization of The U.S. Executive Agencies,” found that more than 200,000 federal bureaucrats now have been granted the authority to carry guns and make arrests — more than the 186,000 Americans serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. “One hundred three executive agencies outside of the Department of Defense spent $2.7 billion on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment between fiscal years 2006 and 2019 (inflation adjusted),” notes the report. “Nearly $1 billion ($944.9 million) was spent between fiscal years 2015 and 2019 alone.”

Gun Rights Orgs Challenge ATF On Gun Definition

From The Truth About Guns:

In the real world, FPC and Mountain States Legal Foundation have teamed up to sue the ATF and DOJ for rewriting federal law. These agencies are changing decades of precedent individuals, companies, and the industry have all relied on through an “agency rulemaking” that does an end-run around Congress. All because the president couldn’t get Congress to pass a law that he campaigned on that would tread upon millions of people’s rights.

ATF Targets Objects Rather Than Criminals

From Bearing Arms:

One of our favorite three letter agencies is at it again. A recent report by attorney Dillon Harris of the Prince Law Offices noted that the ATF has been sending out new nasty grams to alleged customers that may have purchased Forced Reset Triggers and or so-called solvent traps. It’s not exactly known at this time how the ATF procured customer information, but the agency that’s so fond of murdering dogs and sending out malicious Valentine’s Day greetings seems to have the firm Harris is a member of without the lack of clients.

Gun Owners Warned Of Government Overreach

From Ammoland:

The FBI raid on President Donald Trump’s Florida home came as little surprise to the gun rights community. After all, the Department of Justice was weaponized against us the second the current occupants of the White House began measuring the drapes. Their agents have been running and gunning without any adult supervision ever since. So, it was only a matter of time before they became emboldened enough to raid a former President’s home – armed with weapons of war, no less.

The FBI Crossed The Rubicon

From Redstate:

In the same way that J. Edgar Hoover did special favors for the presidents he served to expand the FBI, so too the current bureaucracy is attempting to amass more authority by ensuring that it stays in the good graces of the DNC. Justice is supposed to be blind, but when the people can see obvious examples of unequal application of the law, the people will not tolerate such hypocrisy.

Congress created the FBI, and Congress has the full authority to reorganize, modify, or disband the organization. Nothing in the United States Constitution requires this nation to have an FBI. In fact, the argument could be made that the Constitution does not permit an FBI since the Tenth Amendment reserved the power to enforce the health, safety, and general welfare of the people to the states (police powers).

From The Truth About Guns:

Twenty-five Republican Congressmen – including every Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee – sent a letter Wednesday to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Acting Director Gary Restaino, demanding an explanation for “the Department’s broad and unprecedented effort to revoke Federal Firearms Licenses (FFLs) from law-abiding business owners throughout the country.”

The FBI Is A Political Organization That Needs To Be Abolished

From The Federalist:

Democrats have weaponized the DOJ and the FBI as tools of political repression instead of justice. They are no longer conducting raids to investigate crime; they are conducting raids to punish their political opponents, criminalize dissent, and see if they can materialize crime.
