UPDATE 2/25/2019: Federal Judge Denied a Temporary Injunction; FPF, FPC file Notice of Appeal to D.C. Circuit
In response to tonight’s federal court ruling in the consolidated federal bumpstock lawsuits FPC v. Whitaker (WhitakerCase.com) and Guedes, FPF et al. v. BATFE, et al. (BumpstockCase.com), which challenge the ATF’s Final Rule that bans "bump-stock" devices nationwide, the plaintiffs have jointly issued the following statement:
We are disappointed but unsurprised by the Court's ruling tonight denying a temporary injunction to protect Americans from an unlawful and unconstitutional regulation.
It is important to note that today’s order is not a final ruling on any claim, and is merely a trial court’s denial of a temporary injunction. And while we had hoped for a quick and positive outcome at the trial court level, we have been and remain committed to litigating these issues as much as it takes to completely resolve the cases and protect Americans from a rogue and growing executive branch, including by petitioning the United States Supreme Court if necessary.
Our attorneys have already filed notices of appeal with the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and will be moving to expedite the appeal. Our outstanding counsel have and will continue to make every effort to protect American gun owners and their private property from the Administration’s dangerous, retroactive, and confiscatory ban than will turn thousands of good people into felons and deprive people of their lawfully acquired private property.
In a press conference, President Trump -- who campaigned on protecting the Second Amendment and once proclaimed that "the 8-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end!" -- said: “I don’t care of Congress does it or not, I’m writing [the gun parts] out myself."
We can only STOP this ban by going to court if you STAND WITH US today!
