Major Win for Texas Gun Rights: Preliminary Injunction Granted!

October 4, 2023

We have HUGE news to share with you so please allow me to get straight to the point:

The Northern District of Texas has granted Texas Gun Rights a preliminary injunction against the ATF’s ban on pistol stabilizing braces! 

That means the ATF cannot enforce their ban against our members. (You can read the injunction here).

If you haven’t been following our lawsuit, let me catch you up to speed! 

Texas Gun Rights, in collaboration with the National Association for Gun Rights, took a bold step in SUING the Biden-ATF as a direct response to their ban on pistol stabilizing braces earlier this summer

These plastic firearm accessories, designed to assist disabled veterans and ensure safe and accurate firearm use, are now being used as a pretext to criminalize millions of Americans — and forcing them to disarm.

This is an outrageous abuse of power!

But thanks to YOUR relentless support — we were granted a preliminary injunction, prohibiting the ATF from enforcing this draconian rule on members of our organization. 

This is not just a win for Texas Gun Rights members but a victory for every individual who believes in the right to bear arms and the liberties the Second Amendment protects.

Sadly, this is just the first of MANY battles we have with the ATF.

We’re also diving headfirst into challenging the ATF’s contentious decision to ban forced reset triggers, where they indiscriminately determined a forced reset trigger can somehow turn a firearm into a MACHINE gun.

In fact, I was in federal court earlier this week for our lawsuit on that case, where we are also fighting for an injunction for our members!

Of course, there’s another looming storm on the horizon: the ATF has proposed a new definition for what type of individual constitutes as a “dealer in firearms“. 

If they push this through, Biden’s Universal Gun Registration scheme will be nearly complete by forcing EVERY single (legal) private firearms transaction through the flawed NICS Gun Ban Registry

But as you and I know, criminals will never comply with this request, only law-abiding citizens will… making it nothing more than a universal gun registry for law-abiding gun owners.

Should the ATF dare to tread this path as proposed, we’re ready to counter with all the legal might at our disposal with yet another lawsuit.

But while we rally against these immediate threats, our endgame remains clear: to see the ATF dissolved

We’re actively pushing for H.R. 374 in Congress, and its passing will symbolize a monumental stride in safeguarding gun rights across America.

Now, I turn to you, the backbone of our movement, to join us in making an even more significant impact.

If you haven’t already, please sign our petition to Abolish the ATF: 

Together, we can send a thunderous message that resonates through the halls of Congress.

But if you’ve already signed our petition, please consider supporting our ongoing efforts with a donation to Texas Gun Rights.

No matter if it is $10, $50 or any amount you’re comfortable with, every penny fuels our mission, enabling us to maintain the pressure on the ATF and staunchly defend our cherished freedoms.

We stand at a crossroads, with every action and decision echoing into the future of gun rights in Texas and beyond. 

We’ve tasted victory, and with your continued support, I believe our most significant triumphs are still ahead.

For Texas and Liberty,

 

Chris McNutt

President, Texas Gun Rights
