I don’t know about you (since you’re reading this, though, I’ll assume that you agree with me), but I’m sick and tired of Joe Biden and his anti-2A cronies trying to trample our rights as Americans. What makes it worse is that anti-2A politicians and their bootlickers in the mainstream legacy media constantly take data out of context (if not outright lying about it) to push their agenda to take our guns.
Which is one of the reasons that I love it when a court smacks the gavel down and destroys a gun control scheme. Because, when that happens, even anti-2A politicians’ lying can’t give them what they want or take away our rights.
And that just happened. Zachary Stieber writes,
Restrictions imposed by President Joe Biden’s administration on so-called ghost guns are illegal, a federal appeals court ruled on Nov. 9.
The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), an Executive Branch agency that promulgated the rule containing the restrictions in 2022 with President Biden’s support, overstepped its authority, according to a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.
“The agency rule at issue here flouts clear statutory text and exceeds the legislatively-imposed limits on agency authority in the name of public policy,” U.S. Circuit Judge Kurt Engelhardt wrote in the ruling. “Because Congress has neither authorized the expansion of firearm regulation nor permitted the criminalization of previously lawful conduct, the proposed rule constitutes unlawful agency action, in direct contravention of the legislature’s will.”
“We are elated with this unanimous court ruling,” Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation, which is one of the plaintiffs, said in a statement. “The ATF clearly exceeded its authority. This is a major victory for gun owners and the rule of law.”
This is great news for people concerned about personal liberty, government overreach, and about the right to be able to defend ourselves and our families.
And this is exactly the way all attempts at gun control should be handled: destroy those gun control laws completely.
