"We Dare Not Keep Silent": ATF Releases Anti-Gun Rule For Public Comment. You CAN Help Prevent Slavery Of Your Children and Grandchildren By Your Pro-Gun Comments.

"Earlier this year, the Biden Administration announced its intent to move the United States "as close to Universal Background Checks as possible without additional legislation."

After much speculation on how far-reaching the rule would be, it has finally arrived, and it's worse than expected.

In its current form, the universal background check rule could subject those who sell even a single firearm to dealer requirements, including a background check.
While it is worth noting that none of this would be possible without the Republican-backed gun control known as the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act. There's still something that gun owners can do to combat this rule.

Under the Administrative Procedures Act, when agencies like ATF make rules, they must first submit the rule for public comment on the Federal Register.

During this period, citizens can give their thoughts on the rule and describe their unique situations as to how it will affect them.

If enough comments are negative, the agency will pull the rule and not proceed. Gun Owners of America has experienced massive success in defeating the ATF through this method. Most significantly, in 2015, we defeated the Obama administration's attempt to ban M855 "green tip" ammunition during the notice and comment period.

The first attempt at a pistol brace ruling during the Trump Administration was also defeated through the notice and comment period. ATF retracted the rule and "acknowledged there were legitimate uses for the devices," a statement that encapsulates the hypocritical nature of the agency itself.

And even if the rule goes through and becomes the law of the land, we're not out of options, but your comments are still extremely important to the next steps."

      That is how the dino regards a law abiding free American citizen's Constitutional Right to defend himself with a firearm.
      The "Do Not Tread On Me" slogan of the Gadsden Flag now comes to mind.
      It was on the T-shirt of a little kid very recently sent home by some goofy lib teacher who thought it was racist.
      So much for the First Amendment too.

        With few exceptions, those who can, do, those who can't, teach.
        Only now it's 'those who can't, tell state-biased lies and brainwash children who can't defend themselves'.
        More than 50 years ago teachers were reported to have median !Q about 110. That excluded teachers in "colored" schools.
        All those teachers have retired.
        So many teachers now can't speak or write using correct English.
        "An unpublished Stanford study confirms that the SAT and ACT scores of a
        typical new teacher (in USA) had declined to the 42nd percentile in 2000 ."
        Gee, I wonder why it remained unpublished.
        So new teachers (in 2000) have below average SAT scores that equate to about 96 IQ.

        Average pay for public school teachers was $67,000 in 2022.

        Taxpayers should insist that teachers should have to do better than 105 IQ every year
        and that pay scales should reward teachers whose students get higher scores, too.

          Pardon a cloaked pun, but I must say that I found that information to be educational.
          Explains a lot too. Yikes!
          Perhaps also the indoctrinational susceptibility.

    I have never kept silent and will not start now. The History of Nazi German should have taught us that they will come for us, even if silent. As distant cousin Charleton Heston said, "From my cold, dead hands ..." Still have that shirt also, guess I will have to dig it out and wear it. This gal will not stop fighting! What we need is not more gun laws, but nre anti nuke laws and a lot more real justice in courst.
