National Association for Gun Rights Condemns ATF’s Recent Gun Grab

NAGR Vows to Fight Back Against the ATF’s Anti-Second Amendment Schemes

Published

You can mark the National Association for Gun Rights as firm opponents of the ATF’s new rule to criminalize millions of Americans who own AR and AK pistol braces.

In a statement released on December 17, 2020, NAGR condemned a final rule expected to be published by the ATF on December 18 regarding the regulation of pistol braces. According to AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News, the ATF will place pistol braces under the scope of the National Firearms Act (1934), which means that a number of AR pistols featuring stabilizer braces would have to be registered with the ATF “through the same process undertaken when purchasing a suppressor, machine gun, short-barreled rifle, or short-barreled shotgun.”

In response to this ATF news, NAGR will start gathering and sending petitions to the ATF once their final rule is published.

“The timing of this whole thing stinks to high heaven. If the ATF thinks they can ram this through over Christmas and New Year without us noticing, they are in for a rude awakening,” declared Dudley Brown, the President of NAGR.

In its concluding statement, NAGR made it clear that it will be in firm opposition to the ATF and will be working to lobby the Trump administration to put pressure on the ATF to reverse course:

Rest assured, the National Association for Gun Rights OPPOSES this and any action by the ATF to regulate or ban pistol braces. We will use the power of our 4.5 million members to lobby President Trump, demanding the Department of Justice stand down and abandon this unconstitutional rule which violates our right to keep and bear arms.

Unquestionably, NAGR is one of America’s leading no compromise gun lobbies.

While establishment gun lobbies are busy looking at generic forms of gun control, NAGR is willing to take the battle to the very bureaucratic epicenter where gun control originates. Few organizations are willing to do what it takes to truly downsize the gun control machine.

In that regard, NAGR is in a league of its own thanks to its tireless efforts to expose the ATF and all unconstitutional gun control at the federal level.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
