FPF Statement on Supreme Court Denial of Cert in Trump Bump-Stock Ban

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Firearms Policy Foundation released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court order and Justice Gorsuch’s statement in FPF’s Guedes v. BATFE litigation surrounding the unlawful and unconstitutional Trump Bump-Stock Ban:

The Court’s denial of certiorari of our interlocutory petition is far from the end of this important case. And there seems to be substantial support at the Court for our views about Chevron deference, suggesting the denial was more about timing and posture than substance.

As Justice Gorsuch noted in his Statement, this was a petition from an interlocutory appeal, and “waiting should not be mistaken for lack of concern.” Thus, we intend to bring a full record and final judgment back to the Supreme Court should the lower courts maintain their very wrong approach to Chevron deference, agency interpretation, and serious criminal law.


As our litigation moves towards a final judgment at the trial court, we are hopeful that “errors apparent in this preliminary ruling might yet be corrected before final judgment.” But even if those errors are not corrected, Firearms Policy Foundation will continue to fight for the People that President Trump and his administration abandoned by lawlessly forcing them to dispossess their property and threatening them with federal prison time.

We will continue to update BumpstockCase.com with further case updates and filings.

Folks need to understand the power of the jury for one thing. And OBVIOUSLY a piece of plastic isn’t a machine gun. Like DUH?

Ryben Flynn

The 1934 NFA defines a machine gun. The ATF cannot arbitrarily decide to change the definition, it takes Congress to change the law. And as pointed out, the ATF ruled it did not constitute a machine TWICE under obama because it did not fit the definition. I don’t think the Chevron defense applies in this case as the Law is very explicit as to what a machine gun is. www dot law dot cornell.edu/wex/chevron_deference “Generally, to be accorded Chevron deference, the agency’s interpretation of an ambiguous statute must be permissible” The Statute is hardly ambiguous as to what makes a… Read more »


Precedent is set, now the next time the dems are in the white house they will just ban whatever they want just like Trump did….


Thank you for demonstrating how smart you are unlike Trumptard filth who buy into his lies.

Country Boy

Obama set the excutive order precedent


No he didn’t unlike Trump he never followed through with his threats of tyrannical executive orders


We need to continue to Email and Call the White House and Remind President Trump Weekly on this. I never stopped Emailing President Trump to let him know that the President and his administration has abandoned us by lawlessly forcing us by dispose of our property and threatening us with federal prison time.
Email the NRA at the same time. https://www.nraila.org/contact-nra-ila/


Bump stocks don’t make a fully functional automatic m-16 rifle …I rather have the full auto sear than a plastic bump stock anyways…,


Agreed, but whether or not it is better doesn’t negate the fact that it is still under the protection of the Second Amendment regardless of anyone’s opinion.

My own view is that Binary triggers and Lightning links are better options, but no matter what if someone prefers a bumpstock it is constitutionally protected to own one. The second Amendment says “Zero Infringement”.


Maybe now all the TrumpTard lemmings will finally wake up about your orange blob, Constitution trampling career leftist plinko scum in chief that has now destroyed the 2nd amendment when he arbitrarily decreed through executive order fiat that the Constitution is as meaningless as the rule of law hes single handedly done more to destroy than any president in history (except maybe rino scum Bush & his un-patriot act.)


So HiLIARy would have been a better POTUS? Grow up.


Hitlery would have been opposed by Rino cucks like Lindsay Gay Graham unlike Trump who has decreed to be a king & single-handedly set precedent that dems will abuse to ends of the earth to ban most semi autos. (& Just as I was saying to all the lemmings on here that the judges he appointed would never go against him,which means it sets precedent,thats exactly what this ruling proved)

You should stop referring to the Pro 2nd A crowd as “lemmings”. Trump has done more good in 3 yrs than any other POTUS in over 100 yrs. I’m not happy with the bumpstock ban either, but let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater. BTW who dd YOU vote for ? hillary?


You’re an idiot I don’t think you’d have anyone’s back in combat…your words say you’re a frightened idiot when confronted in real life situations, I guarantee you get road rage and you run from it or you fight with your neighbors when their dog is in your yard or your a renter with a bad attitude towards your Fellow renters ..yes I’m saying A$$——F*A*G…AM I RIGHT BIGALOW


Typical trumptard scum,you are a disgrace to conservatism along with this career leftist nbc plinko blob. It doesn’t surprise me that you’re brainwashed enough to support Trump while claiming to be a constitutionalist freedom loving American. He has single handedly opened the floodgates the next libtard will exploit to ban most semi autos,Trump is a red flag law supporting coward just like you. He will tell inbred Hicks like you whatever will get him reelected which is why he wanted red flag laws when he met with libscum cronies like Fienstein,Pelisi,etc. Trumptards are a disgrace to everything patriots like me… Read more »

More proof that Firearms Policy Coalition and Gun Owners of America are the sharp end of the stick and that the NRA is not our friend.
