National Association for Gun Rights Urges Congress to Stop the Mass Criminalization of Law-Abiding Gun Owners
In a press statement published on May 19, 2023, The National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) urged Congress to halt the Biden regime’s plan to criminalize millions of Americans by nullifying the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)’s issuance of a rule titled Factoring Criteria for Firearms With Attached “Stabilizing Braces” published on January 31, 2023.
“The ATF’s senseless rule will turn millions of gun owners into felons overnight for not registering their lawfully acquired pistol braces by May 31st,” stated Dudley Brown, President of the National Association of Gun Rights. “And Republican leadership is turning a deaf ear to the gun rights community who have sent thousands of emails and made countless phone calls insisting that they address the issue.”
“The ATF is usurping the role of Congress by making up their own laws and calling them rules. Rules that get you charged with felonies if you don’t follow them sound a lot like laws to me,” stated Brown.
On March 17, Georgia Congressman Andrew Clyde introduced H.J. Res. 44, a resolution that would reverse the Biden brace ban, which would prevent millions of Americans having to register their firearm accessory with the government or even face jail time for not complying with this order.
“Unelected bureaucrats having the power to make laws, without any legislative authority sounds like something that happens in third world dictatorships not America,” stated Brown. “Lawmakers can either stand with gun owners by voting on H.J. Res. 44 or they can let the anti-gunners continue to run rampant all over the second amendment.”
H.J. Res. 44 currently has 188 co-sponsors and national support from gun owners.
NAGR is now calling on its members to call Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise and urge him to schedule a vote on H.J. Res. 44 as soon as possible.
NAGR has quickly become the most prominent no compromise gun lobby in America. Its indefatigable devotion to protecting gun rights at all levels of government — local, state, and federal — has earned it major respect among hardcore gun owners. NAGR’s no compromise model and relentless activist against the political establishment is something that the nationalist right should embrace on other issues.
