NAGR fighting ATF’s proposed rule punishing firearm hobbyists
Washington, D.C. – The National Association for Gun Rights is mobilizing its members in opposition to today’s ATF rulemaking proposal. The proposal, if enacted, would impose new federal firearms restrictions, background checks, and fees on law-abiding citizens who engage in the centuries old tradition of building firearms at home for personal use.
“This rule is a slap in the face to the millions of law-abiding Americans who have built their own firearms at home. It’s a nonsense ‘feel good’ rule that only burdens good people but does nothing to stop violent criminals and gangsters from obtaining guns,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
After weeks of speculation, the rule was made public today. The general public will have 90 days to respond to the rule through the ATF website.
“This is just one more pathetic gun control ploy from Joe Biden as he bows down to the Gun Control Lobby and their unlawful schemes to destroy the Second Amendment.”
In December, the ATF pitifully attempted to catch gun rights supporters off guard when they when tried to impose severe new regulations on pistol braces over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
“We alerted our members and collected thousands of petitions before the ATF abruptly called off their unconstitutional attack on our right to keep and bear arms just two days before Christmas,” said Brown “We are ready to fight this new gun grab all the way.”
The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s second largest pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members and supporters nationwide.
