Guess what? We did it again!
The overreaching bureaucrats at ATF were delivered another major blow.
Thanks to our relentless pressure in the court, Judge Reed O’Connor of the Northern District stomped on the ATF’s ridiculous Forced Reset Trigger ban and granted a preliminary injunction in our SECOND lawsuit against the ATF.
Now, members of Texas Gun Rights, National Association for Gun Rights and clientele of Rare Breed Triggers, are protected from this nonsensical regulation.
But here’s the icing on the cake: in O’Connor’s conclusion, he stated that “the plaintiffs are likely correct” that the ATF’s attempts to broaden the definition of a machine gun is an arbitrary and capricious expansion of the agency’s authority.
“Plaintiffs have carried their burden at this stage to show that the expanded definition of machinegun likely exceeds the scope of ATF’s statutory authority.”
This is a huge victory and a good sign we are on the way to winning a permanent injunction for our members and further reining in the ATF.
Of course, this marks our SECOND preliminary injunction granted in less than a week!
You may recall, on Wednesday of last week that Judge O’Connor ruled in our favor in another lawsuit, ensuring that Texas Gun Rights members are shielded against the ATF’s misguided ban on pistol stabilizing braces.
That’s TWO major smackdowns in ONE week!
How’s that for showing the ATF who’s boss?
Now, let’s be clear. These are not mere victories. They are loud, clear messages to the power-hungry pencil pushers in D.C.
But we’re not just here to win battles. We’re here to WIN THE WAR.
And that war? It’s to ABOLISH the ATF for good — and YOU can help us send them packing!
Let’s drown them in a sea of signatures!
But after you sign, I need you to help us keep the momentum going.
Remember, donations of $35 or more not only support our cause but automatically make you a Texas Gun Rights member (if you’re not one already.)
That means, should we secure a permanent injunction, your rights would be safeguarded permanently!
Look, I understand not everyone has money to give. Or, like many others, you may have already given recently.
And we greatly appreciate your support!
But please know that each victory we achieve is a testament to our collective strength, unity, and dedication to preserving the Second Amendment rights.
Let’s keep up the pressure and ensure our voices resonate in the corridors of power.
Thank you for being the backbone of this fight. Together, we will prevail!
For Texas and Liberty,
President, Texas Gun Rights
