USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Hello everybody and welcome to Guns & Gadgets, YOUR YouTube source for 2nd Amendment news. With over 20 years of experience in the law enforcement field, I have learned the numerous channels used by those who would love to see our 2nd Amendment rights stripped. Because of this, I am often able to bring you the news on new bills submitted at the local, state and federal levels that look to carry out those attacks. If you are new to the channel or want to stay up to date with the constant infringements on our Constitutional Right to Bear Arms, please subscribe to my YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/GunsGadgets
Recently, President Donald J. Trump, under immense pressure from the vocal anti-gun community, following the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, charged the Department of Justice, and subsequently the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to work towards an outright ban of bump stock type devices. The claim is such devices allow a shooter of a semi-automatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger, thus creating a workaround of the National Firearms Act.
This cause picked up more steam as Chris Cox, the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action’s Executive Director, published a joint statement with Wayne Lapierre, the NRA’s Executive Vice President, that many believe gave the anti-gun community the confidence to continue the push for the ban. This joint statement can be viewed here: https://home.nra.org/joint-statement
On Tuesday, December 18, 2018, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker announced that the Department of Justice had amended the regulations of the ATF, clarifying that bump stocks now fall within the definition of “machine gun” under federal law.
Immediately, Erich Pratt, the Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, announced GOA would file a lawsuit against the ATF and the Department of Justice to seek an injunction protecting gun owners from the arbitrary ban. This announcement can be viewed here: www.gunowners.org/gun-owners-of-america-to-file-suit-against-atf-bump-stock-ban.htm
Upon learning of Gun Owners of America’s plan to stand up to the federal government and file this lawsuit, I reached out to GOA and secured a one-on-one, live interview with Erich Pratt to be held on Guns & Gadgets this Wednesday evening, January 9, 2019, at 6:00 PM, EST.
We will be discussing the bump stock ban lawsuit as well as Republican-sponsored gun control such as the National Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act submitted by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL). This bill is a National Red Flag Bill that is genuinely a gun confiscation bill. It not only circumvents Due-Process and violates our 4th Amendment right against unreasonable searches and seizures, 2nd Amendment right to bear arms, as well as our right to confront our accuser, among others, but looks to reward states that enact Red Flag Laws with grants and other funding. President Trump’s own Federal Commission on School Safety released a report recommending states pass Red Flag Laws. They even laid the template out towards fruition. Also, do not forget the President’s quote, “Take the firearms first and then go to court.” You can learn more by watching my video at the top of the page.
So please join us for this LIVE interview with GOA’s Erich Pratt and stay active in the chat because your question might just be the one I ask!
Spread the word because this ban, if left unchallenged, will pave the way for more arbitrary infringements that threaten the 2nd Amendment. I look forward to seeing you on Guns & Gadgets!!
