MARCH 25 UPDATE: On Friday, our attorneys argued the appeal in our bumpstock lawsuit at the federal Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit -- often called the 'second-highest court in the land'. On Saturday, the Court ordered a partial administrative stay of enforcement of the ATF's Final Rule as to the named parties! (A stay is a way to put the brakes on the Rule going into effect.)
Yesterday, our lawyers filed an Emergency Joint Motion at the Court asking it to expand the Stay Order to expressly protect all persons affected by the ATF's final rule banning "Bump-Stock-Type Devices". This morning, the government opposed our Emergency Motion but said that the Court already "limited the relief granted to the named plaintiffs, which extends relief to the organizations and their bona fide members..." We just filed a reply brief in support of our Emergency Motion, and our lawyers are working to file an emergency application for stay at the United States Supreme Court RIGHT NOW
Our legal team is working as we speak to take this case to the U.S. Supreme Court TODAY -- we are doing EVERYTHING legally possible to protect YOU and all Americans from the ATF's dangerous and unprecedented retroactive ban! But we need YOUR SUPPORT NOW. This expensive legal action is just the beginning of the case, not the end. Please chip in a tax-deductible contribution and BECOME AN FPF MEMBER TODAY!
According to the U.S. Government, the Stay Order our legal team secured grants relief "to the named plaintiffs" **and** "extends relief to the organizations and their bona fide members..." That means that it's the US DOJ's position that ALL FPF MEMBERS are currently protected against the ATF's Bumpstock Ban Final Rule through the Court's stay order in our FPF/Guedes litigation! (See BumpstockCase.com for more about this important case.)
