USA – -( AmmoLand.com )- Supreme Court Refuses to Issue Stay to Protect Gun Owners As you know, Gun Owners of America has been fighting the ATF’s bump stock ban in the courts. But given that the turn-in period for bump stocks ended this past Monday, GOA sought an emergency stay from the U.S. Supreme Court. Sadly, on Thursday, the Supreme Court refused to halt the enforcement of the ATF’s bump stock ban. Our challenge is still alive and well, however, in the lower courts. Certainly, GOA cannot advocate that its members violate the law. And yet we predict, given our experience with nine states with similar bans, that a large majority of the 500,000 bump stock owners will refuse to turn in their property in what they view as an illegal, unconstitutional gun grab. The ATF regulations define bump stocks as “machine guns” and seriously implicate the right to own AR-15’s and many other semi-automatic firearms, as we have explained in past alerts. GOA will continue to fight the issue in the court system, as the case now returns to the lower courts. And we remain convinced that the courts will consign this unlawful, unconstitutional ban to the trash bin of history, where it belongs. Please stay tuned for further updates on this.
