Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Introduces The Second Amendment Preservation Act

WASHINGTON, D.C.-( Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has introduced the Second Amendment Preservation Act which is a bill that would prevent federal funds from being used to enforce any measure, law, regulation, or guidance from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) issued after November 1, 2020.

After the Presidential election, the Biden transition team contacted the ATF to see what their top priorities will be for the new administration. Acting ATF Director Regina Lombardo and Acting Assistant Director Marvin Richardson responded that their top priorities were pistol braces and unserialized firearms. As soon as it appeared that Biden won the election, the ATF started tackling their biggest concerns.

The ATF raided Polymer80 and started showing up at firearms dealers that sold unfinished frames. They radically changed what they considered firearms after the Biden victory. According to the agency, a kit with a jig and a frame was enough to consider it a gun. The ATF believed anyone selling the kits was selling unregistered firearms. Biden’s win emboldened the ATF.

Then right before Christmas, the ATF submitted a letter to the National Registry, which would make almost every pistol brace on the market into a stock. They were about to turn millions of Americans into felons overnight. Only because of the massive public outcry and enraged Congress members did the ATF pull their letter. No one believes that the ATF will stop trying to change the definition of pistol braces and unfinished frames.

What Rep. Greene’s bill will do is stop the ATF in their tracks. Without funding, they will not be able to enforce changes to long-held definitions of devices as they did with bump stocks to make de facto gun laws. Rep. Green believes only Congress can make laws, and the law enforcement agency has overstepped its bounds.

The bill has won praise from firearms advocacy organizations like Gun Owners of America (GOA). The group endorsed Rep Greene during her campaign, citing her commitment to defending the Second Amendment. Greene is a gun owner and a staunch supporter of the right to bear arms.

“President Biden has promised to take on gun owners and pursue the most aggressive gun control agenda in history,” Aidan Johnston, Director of Federal Affairs for GOA, stated. “He’s vowed to attack the gun rights of seniors, ban the distribution of 3D printed gun files, and target pistol braced firearms and 80 percent receivers. However, the Second Amendment Preservation Act cuts at the heart of the enforcement of any legislation by any agency—through cutting its funding—and prevents any of Biden’s measures from going into effect.”

“This legislation harmonizes with the clear mandate of ‘shall not be infringed’ in the Second Amendment and gives gun owners a tool to peaceably fight back against unconstitutional gun control measures,” Johnston concluded.

Rep Greene has been a lightning rod for Democrat’s attacks on the Hill. Greene was an ardent Trump supporter and not your average politician. Democrats went as far as to try to remove her from committees and wanted to prevent her from being seated. Greene fought back and refused to bend a knee to the establishment.

The bill will face a tough road through Congress, but Rep Greene vows to keep pushing for pro-gun bills.

The 2nd A Preservation Act is not a piece of legislation. It is the actions of “We the People” necessary to Eliminate the threat posed by any Group, Individual or Group of Individuals who would attempt to Deny the Right though Coercion, Legislation, Court Ruling or Tyranny. The words inscribed within the Bill of Rights were handed down to future generation from the Blood of Patriots who believed in something Greater than themselves. It deserves No Less from those who have enjoyed the Freedoms they sacrificed so much to Pass On. Anything Less only shows the Complacent Cowardess of a… Read more »


The cowards are the LEOs, National Guard, and active Military who will follow bad orders.

If they don’t follow bad orders, the complacent, cowardly, spoiled, and thankless citizenry can just go about their business paying taxes to pay for the good government employees.




True as far as it goes, but I think it will and already has fallen upon the citizenry to stand up. Any that don’t are just along for the ride.


You believe LEOs, National Guard, and the Military will largely follow bad orders and the ones who won’t follow the orders will just stand by and watch the ones who will – is that what you are saying?

Jeremy B.

This is all well and good, but it’s about as likely to pass as Sheila Jackson’s bill. Maybe less likely. It’s basically virtue signalling to get support from constituents.

Instead maybe we should work on things that actually have a chance like national reciprocity, the safe hearing act, or literally anything else pro 2A.


Well stated! I completely agree.


The objective is to ‘out’ the frauds and usurpers. Force them to do recorded votes and stand for their true beliefs. There are far too many Rubio’s and Romney’s out there trying to pass as conservatives who are actually progressives and leftists in sheep skins. John McCain was a prime example. His spawn still plague us under the NAMBLA offspring known as the Lincoln Project.


What good will it do if you get reciprocity, when they take away the 2A altogether. You may win battles but lose the war.


Herd mentality. First of all, “they” are few in the overall scheme of things as compared to the shitstorm that, “they” would create to a point where, “they” would not last on this earth very much longer by being devoured by their own… Case in point; Minneapolis, MN with their Defund The Police movement. Now they are clamoring for police department applicants.


instead of attacking the out of control BATF and their unlawful “rule” making, how’s about taking a strong position ENFORCING that part of the Constitution that plainly declares right out of the gate in Article One Section One Paragraph One Sentence One: “ALL legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a COngress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and a House of Representatives.”. And of Article One Section One. Thus BATF making their rules, which effectively have the force of law, they being part of the EXECUTIVE branch, operate OUTSIDE their constitutoinal authoirtuy. WHy go… Read more »


They are not popular – their Valentine’s Day Tweet did not go over well.

The LEOs on ARFCOM are having a meltdown “you can only wish bad things on non-government employees. Stop or the thread will be locked.”


Acts such as this at the local, state and federal level serve to ‘out’ progressives, socialists and communists who are feigning ‘liberalism’ in both parties. Republicans like Rubio, Collins, Romney, Murkdowski and many, many others will finally have to commit to recorded votes on whether or not they support the founding documents of this country. When that time comes they will stand with the leftists and socialists who have hated America as a Federal Republic for decades. Force them to shed their sheep skins and stand for their true beliefs. It is not that hard. Our Declaration of Independence, the… Read more »


Well, then it is high time that WE, The People demand the immediate removal of ALL Republicans that do not abide by the Republican Party Planks! Not, Recall, not, vote them out of office, immediate removal for failure to do their job(s)!


“The Tenth Amendment was part of the Bill of Rights that was added to the Constitution on December 15, 1791. This amendment states that any power not specifically given to the federal government by the Constitution belongs to the States and the people.” It appears that, “the people” part never gets off the ground due to that nationalized virus called APATHY! PEOPLE! STEP-UP TO THE PLATE and do YOUR PART in maintaining ALL of our elected and appointed officials at ALL levels of government! If they are violating their oaths, show up at that city, county, state or federal meeting, put your finger in… Read more »


“Thus the right of nullification meant by Mr. Jefferson is the natural right, which all admit to be a remedy against insupportable oppression.” -James Madison


Absolutely, there are 7 Republican senators that need to be yanked right now.


I have done county and state several times. It is always so difficult because they do not like the 1911 I wear.


The 14th Amendment ended that debate. Any Right the Constitution enumerates, the States cannot deny or abridge. The problem is the SCOTUS 1870’s decision in Cruikshanks vs US was Unconstitutional and reduced the 2nd Amendment as a secondary Right.


But wait there is more from the Cuban Ice Cream Man, and Roach Coach Operator:
Call and write rubio and Scott and tell him to withdraw the Terror Intelligence Improvement Act.
This so-called ‘supporter of the Second Amendment’ is trying to revive the
“Terror Intelligence Improvement Act.”
Rubio’s proposed legislation would grant the federal government the power to
delay gun purchases and “Red Flag” people investigated for “domestic terrorism.
This law will target law-abiding citizens who have not committed a crime, in other words, it’s an unconstitutional “pre crime” program similar to what you’d expect to see in Communist China.


Weird that Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Chuck Grassley and all the rest have not criticized Rubio for sponsoring the “Terror Intelligence Improvement Act.”

Pelosi will keep any gun friendly legislation from ever reaching the floor for a vote and most won’t make it out of committee.
Do you think that the national guard is being kept in D.C. to protect the congress members from legislation that they are going to ram through such as a new firearm ban and they know what the outrage will be?
The people who voted for Biden have opened up a can of worms.


A VERY BIG CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The people that actually DID vote for Biden would first have to understand how to USE a can opener?

Rep. Greene, thanks for supporting gun owners. Thank you also for being a thorn in the demoncrats rear end! Keep up the good work.


This is the kind of clear thinking and courage under fire that will save this Republic.


Yes it is, and we need more like her!


Good idea. Now what would happen when BATFE sends one if their goons into a thinly attended Caucus and asks for more money and the request for funding is REFUSED?
Another solution to this problem is Mrs Greene should put up a bill which would Outlaw the use of public money to fund any and all Non-governmental Organizations.

Bloomberg and others gets a lot of money from fedgov.


NPR, Sesame Street, Planned Parenthood, CAIR, Public Universities, etc, etc, etc… all feed at the government hog trough.


“The bill will face a tough road through Congress” – John Crump

I’ll say.

In 2017 and 2018 (before Greene was a representative), the Republicans could have passed meaningful legislation. Not only that, but they could have reduced the BATFE field agents by 200 people.

Biden is rallying the anti-2nd Amendment legislators to put forth more gun control bills:

He has listed the laws he sees as a priority.

It will be interesting to see whether, in addition to the laws listed, he will use an executive order to ban the importation of certain types of ammunition.


Will – 2/14/21   “JSNMGC,Biden can try and pass any anti-2A nonsense he wants…Who cares? That senile bastard can even try to do it through executive order…Who cares? If its in direct violation of the Constitution (and it will be) it don’t mean shit! I know in Texas Gov.Abbott would just disregard the socialists tyrannical bullshit too! He would probably just resort to our Texas Constitution right before articles of secession are filed. Biden’s only hope is to do as much damage to the country as he can before the mid-terms in ‘22.

Will – 2/14/21

“JSNMGC,you got that right bro!”

Response to Will:

Well, that will be a remarkably different approach than those same agencies took in 1993 when the Feds visited Texas.


Yeah, their record shows they’ll roll out the red carpet for the feds.


Agreed. Abbott’s gutless & just trying to CYA prior to his upcoming re-election race in two years. He needs to be sent packing back tp physical rehab for good. He a bottom feeding RINO!!!


Provided THIS TIME, the Republicans get off their complacent asses and ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING with that win? People seem to forget, WE, The People HAD the House, the Senate AND The Whitehouse in 2017 and 2018 and we didn’t do a damn thing! TRUMP DID! But The Republicans just pouted, bitched and moaned for two years because Trump showed them their asses in the debates and won!

Really Folks, politicians are not the answer. Just look at our history. Why, all of a sudden, do we think that politically, we can solve the problems that politicians have been incessantly creating since 1934 and before. Since we are outnumbered, the only way we can make a difference is to educate the general public. We can do this over the long period by openly, politely, and responsibly carrying out weapons in all the places that the public goes. That will make them rethink their stereotype assignments of us. If we don’t stand out, we can just ride the downward… Read more »


The ATF has infringed on the 2A for decades. The simple words “shall not be infringed” are practically meaningless to State and Federal governments. MTG is one of the few GOP people in Congress that is using her status to introduce bills designed to address issues of importance to all conservatives. Read her bills before you discount her.


Her bill neither helps (because it won’t be passed and we already know which politicians are anti-2nd Amendment) nor hurts.

If she wanted to do something productive, she could convince Liz Cheney, Lauren Boebert, and Kristi Noem to form a team of debaters to challenge female gun control proponents in highly publicized events in order to provide information to those suburban women who currently believe the lies underlying gun control laws.

Until more voters care about firearm ownership rights, nothing much will change. Lawyers will continue to make money on the squabbling, and rights will continue to degrade.

Ansel Hazen

I wouldn’t include Liz in any group other than the one reserved for people who can scrub my toilet.


It doesn’t really matter what you and I think of her. Politicians in both parties chase the votes of suburban, white women. Suburban, white woman are more likely to change their vote than other voting blocks. Suburban, white women (as a group) are generally not very pro 2nd Amendment. Suburban, white women may listen to other “moms” who provide a solid, logical argument explaining the lies upon which gun control laws are based. Cheney, Boebert, and Noem all have kids. Cheney is smart, can put together a logical argument, and she can stay on point without becoming emotional. Most of… Read more »


“white woman are more likely to change their vote than other voting blocks.”

There are words that can be used to describe the reason for this behavior but I’ll refrain from them at this time.



I try to remain objective and focus on data – that is the demographic upon which the politicians spend the most money.

Seriously though, a high-profile female politician with children could make a big impact and the NRA and other groups should be pressuring them to actually get involved.


I’ll be kind unlike the people who pointed out this error when I did it some time in the past; the word is piqued. Yeah, I know, I should have realized my error then also.

Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott just announced they’re teaming up with radical anti-gun Democrats to push a “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation bill, S. 292.
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
We need to stop this trend of Republican-sponsored gun confiscation in its tracks.
So please call and write them right away:
Senator Rubio (202) 224-3041
Senator Scott (202) 224-5274
Demand they withdraw their “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation bill and stop trying to appease the gun grabbers immediately.


The Communists – er, I mean the Democrats – have been shredding our Constitution, one little piece at a time, for well more than a century. There is no reason to think that will not continue under our new phony President; in fact, there is every reason to believe the pace will accelerate significantly.


They keep getting voted-in because so many people want the government to fix their problems.


Agreed. And not to mention that far too many of our citizens rely for their “information” on the lying Leftist-controlled media.


I’m referring to the people who want the government to interfere with the private market and control prices because they feel the prices are unfair.

Good grief.

The very people who demand that government address their entitlement-based grievances don’t even recognize themselves in the mirror.


“lying” and “Leftist”… you repeat yourself


Don’t know how to deal with their own!!!!!!!!!!!!


Wouldn’t, “The People” first have to actually vote them in?


No matter what view you have on voter fraud, it is clear that many, many extremely anti-2nd Amendment politicians at the state and federal level received the majority of the legal votes.

Lots of people want the government to fix their problems and will willingly trade their freedom for promises to do so.

Also, many politicians who will vote for (or sign into law) some additional gun control bills were not only voted-in legally, but are perceived by many to be Pro 2nd Amendment.


Oldvet, What I said was, a large percentage of Americans born since at least 1850 have been in favor big government, forced wealth redistribution by government, and gun control. If you don’t socialize with people in their 20s, I encourage you to do so. It’s not hard to find ones who are: Pro-government (but believe government should be smaller, less intrusive, less involved with wealth redistribution, more honest, more efficient, and less expensive) Pro-LE (but believe LEOs should be respectful and should have a line in the sand they won’t cross because it is morally wrong) Pro-military (but believe the… Read more »

Take a look at the birth dates of the people who voted for FDR, LBJ, Carter, B. Clinton, Obama, H. Clinton, and Biden. Lot’s and lot’s of people born before 1960.


I can truthfully state that I was born before 1960 and did NOT cast votes for ANY of those you listed.


We Trump supporters didn’t, I say again did not vote hiden in. The dems fraudulent actions put it there.


Trump lost because of his ego and his narcistic personality. Those two traits drove him to flip-flop on gun control and prevented him from shutting his mouth when it was appropriate. Disclosures: I voted for Trump in 2016 and 2020 I understand why some firearm owners didn’t vote for him. They’ve had it and believe the only way to get Republican politicians to stop pushing more gun control in the future is to just let them lose now. I guarantee you, the Republican Party (Ronna McDaniel and the state Chairpersons) did not get this message. They are stubborn and… Read more »


Have you been following chocopot’s demand for socialism in other threads?


“Price gouging is the issue. That their excess profits due to gouging are what you call “earnings” is not what he is saying. Everyone is entitled to earn a living, but price gouging is a very bad and very unfair business practice. In other words, they are taking unfair advantage of a tough situation,”


I didn’t indicate the conversation took place today.


No, you meant “communists,” and you were absolutely correct to begin with.


Unfortunately, I doubt this Bill will even make it out of the House of Reprobates. While I applaud Representative Greene for her work, I just don’t see Democrats backing this in any way. Even if it did get Congressional approval from both Houses, El Presidente Dipsh*t will veto it without a thought.


If that’s the case then it’s time to use our 2nd amendment and eliminate and exterminate all these demorat swamp creatures and get rid of the problem.


God bless Representative Greene and thank you John Crump for posting the proper Second Amendment. That would be with one coma and the lower case s in state. The proper use of punctuation and Capitalization in a sentence make the actual meaning very clear.


I think the government is trying to over run the people ,when we the people pay their salaries so they actually work for us, they really need to leave our 2nd amendment alone ,I for one will not give up my guns or ammunition to anyone

WI Patriot

It’s sad that it’s come to this…


It’s sad that action wasn’t taken in 2017 to significantly reduce the size, authority, scope, and cost of the BATFE.


It’s sad that action couldn’t be taken in 1934 NFA (National Firearms Act) and again in 1968, GCA (Gun Control Act)! If people looked back in history they would see that we really didn’t have a problem with guns all that often because those that were found guilty of the most heinous of crimes were either shot, hung or electrocuted… End of story! Now a days, we preserve those that seek to destroy mankind with the flawed thinking that rehabilitating these worst of the worst will somehow spring forth Unicorns and Candy Canes?


I’ve heard proponents (like my delusional brother-in-law) make all kinds of claims [all outright lies, but the claims are spouted] regarding socialism – that it’s “fair” and “just” and “socially acceptable” and “efficient” and “preferable,” etc.

But I don’t know of anyone who ever seriously claimed that the world-class idea [sarcasm!] known as socialism was actually based in any type of sanity.


I blame much of our loss of gun rights on the Republicans, as lead by Rep. Paul Ryan. Former president Trump had both houses of Congress when he took office, and they were Republican for the first 2 years of Trump’s administration. There were several pro 2nd amendment bills that could have passed and been signed into law. One was CCW reciprocity, yet the Republicans said that they had to compromise on something or another, and that they could not get the pro gun bill passed, they had to try a different time. So the hand writing was clearly on… Read more »


It has come to this because The People have become apathetic to their individual duties as citizens to maintain their government officials.

Good for Marjorie TG, but you have to admit, when you’re praising MTG, you’re praising a “genuine whacko”!


There are some “genuine whackos” in the House, aren’t there?



Just so I understand your definition of a “genuine wacko,” is Hank Johnson in the club?


I agree fully.

Nope. I don’t have to admit that.


Thank YOU Margorie Taylor Green for supporting American Citizens and the American Constitution with its ACKNOWLEDGEMENT that American Citizens HAD RIGHT BEFORE the Constitution was penned!!! Thank You. I would you represented Maryland than the SYCOPHANT DemoKKKrats that are here.

Greene is NOT a Miracle Worker here… I really fail to see all this praise going to Greene for penning something that is Pablum to the already enshrined founding documents. What she should be doing is DEFENDING AND PROTECTING what we already HAVE!

I’m sure they’ll all be thinking deeply about this while they are outlawing our guns.


This bill will go nowhere in the DemocRAT controlled House and the 50-50 Senate! It’s exactly what we need though!


You sure you don’t want to rephrase your comment, or do you prefer to live without freedom and liberty? WHY would WE, The People need a blanket on top of and covering the already 246 year old 2nd Amendment?

DemocRat Congress critters believe, however insanely, that any/all legislation is automatically acceptable (Constitutional) by its simple enactment. So conservatives (the sane people in this country) might well be able to argue – by throwing DemocRat precedent and their excuse for “logic” back in their face – that a legislated “law” that supports the 2nd Amendment just has to be righteous, by its very existence! The extra “blanket” (as you term it) cannot hurt a all, and it might actually help, at least a little. As you say, such a law is technically unnecessary – that’s true – but I can’t… Read more »
