On this past Friday the 13th, the ATF massacred your God-given rights by finalizing Biden’s pistol ban.
This executive action will ban up to 40,000,000 pistols with attached “stabilizing braces.”
The ATF is forcing millions of gun owners like you to choose among the following options:
❗Rebuild your firearm at your own cost [Register it with the federal government]
❗Destroy your own LEGALLY purchased firearm
❗Go to jail for up to 10 years and pay up to a $250,000 fine
…But Gun Owners of America has another option for you.
We need your help urging the House and Senate to use the Congressional Review Act (CRA), which allows Congress to pass a Joint Resolution of Disapproval to REPEAL an unconstitutional executive action imposed by a government agency.
Biden and Kamala just secured a 51-seat majority in the Senate, so you may be thinking this CRA would be dead on arrival, if it passes the Republican-controlled House…
But here’s the good news: it only takes 30 Senators to force a CRA vote in the Senate.
Of course, that still doesn’t make it a guarantee.
We’ve seen how quickly allegedly “pro-gun” Senators can fold under pressure from the media and well-funded attack ads.
That’s why we need our members like YOU to light a fire under every House member and Senator to ensure a CRA is forced in Congress.
The 1934 National Firearms Act (NFA) is the underlying law which gives the ATF the foothold to ban millions of legal guns – guns that were originally deemed permissible by the ATF!
Thankfully, in the previous Congress, Rep. Clyde introduced the SHORT (Stop Harassing Owners of Rifles Today) Act, which would remove the unconstitutional taxation, registration, and regulation in the National Firearms Act of Short Barreled Rifles, Short Barreled Shotguns, and those classified under “Any Other Weapons.”
The SHORT Act goes after the heart of Biden’s pistol ban by deregulating the National Firearms Act that ultimately gives the ATF the power to enforce Biden’s ban.
That’s why we’re also urging Congress to vote YES on the SHORT Act, as it will shortly be reintroduced in the new Congress.
You see, GOA is committed to using every single tool at our disposal to fight this unconstitutional assault on our rights.
In fact, If Biden vetoes the CRA or the SHORT Act, we’re urging Congress to retaliate in defense of our Second Amendment rights by cutting the ATF’s funding.
Now that the Speaker’s gavel has been taken out of Pelosi’s hands, the new House majority better make true on its promises to gun owners by using the Power of the Purse to slash the ATF’s funding.
The ATF reportedly processed 512,315 NFA forms in 2020.
At that rate – assuming no further backlog and assuming all affected gun owners comply with gun registration – it would take the ATF over 78 years to process all the pistol registration forms required by this executive action.
That’s why it’s especially critical to SLASH the ATF’s funds right now and strip them of their ability to enforce Biden’s pistol ban.
While GOA continues to fight this unconstitutional executive action on every front, we need YOUR help pressuring Congress to get moving immediately.
