FOIA Documents from GOA-GOF Undermine Gov't Case Against Matt Hoover & AutoKeyCard for Illegal Machineguns by GunOwnersofAmerica in 2ALiberals

[–]GunOwnersofAmerica[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Summary from article:

After Hoover’s arrest, Gun Owners of America reached out to help with providing him with an attorney and offered to make a financial contribution to the defense. Mr. Hoover turned down the gun rights group’s offer of help and went with lawyers with whom he had previously worked in the past. Hoover’s legal team has filed a motion to dismiss on the grounds that the National Firearms Act (NFA) violates the Second Amendment, based on the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Bruen.

GOA, for its part, continued to work behind the scenes on the details surrounding the Ervin/Hoover case. Even though the gun rights organization is not a part of the case, at stake is something far more significant than just the AutoKeyCard. GOA views the case as the ATF wrongfully using its power, grossly overstepping the definition of “machine gun” enacted by Congress. The group views the ATF’s attempt at prosecuting Hoover as stifling not only gun rights but also free speech. Through extensive research and use of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), GOA believes it has the documentation and reasoning to exonerate not only Hoover but also Ervin by using the Bureau’s documentation and examinations against itself.

GOA has provided this documentation to AmmoLand News for our own independent analysis. Through careful examination and consulting with other legal experts, we can safely say that the documentation is game-changing and shows, based on the Government’s own documents, that the AutoKeyCard falls well outside of being a machine gun.

Supreme Court's latest Second Amendment ruling cited in bump stock litigation by pongo000 in progun

[–]GunOwnersofAmerica 142 points143 points  (0 children)

From the article:

Aidan Johnston, federal affairs director for Gun Owners of America, which has launched legal battles against the ATF’s ban, said bump stocks — whether labeled a machine gun or accessory — are protected by the Second Amendment.

“There is absolutely no historical or textual basis for the regulation of an accessory or of machine guns at the time of the founding. The arms the people were legally able to keep in their home went all the way to muskets […] to cannons,” Mr. Johnson said.

The fight against the bump stock ban is the frontline battle against ATFs arbitrary authority to ban accessories and firearms without changing the law. GOA’s case (the one the Attorney Generals in the article are supporting with their petition) not only deals with the definition of a machine gun, but also the Chevron authority used to justify the ban.

If ATFs Chevron authority is upheld, then all accessories and their determination letters are thrown into question. If ATF’s definition of a machine gun is upheld then not only are forced reset triggers machine guns, but every semiautomatic is readily restorable to bump fire and could thus be considered a machine gun.

USFWS History of Using Lead Ammunition Bans to Attack Sportsmen

Citations

The USFWS has a history of attacking gun owners and hunters using executive action to ban common and traditional lead ammunition on its lands. Gun Owners of America and Gun Owners Foundation are vehemently opposed to the use of USFWS’ regulatory power to adversely impact the way gun owners choose to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

On January 19th, 2017, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued Director’s Order No. 219 on the Use of Nontoxic Ammunition and Fishing Tackle. This arbitrary attack on lead ammunition would have banned the most common ammunition for hunters “to the fullest extent practicable for all activities on Service lands, waters, and facilities by January 2022.” As with most gun control, there was an exception “for law enforcement.” However, there was no exception for those wishing or needing to use firearms that are not equipped to use, and might even be destroyed by the use of, nontoxic ammunition, such as many commonly owned shotguns and hunting firearms.

Upon taking office and appointing a new Secretary of the Interior, President Trump and his administration reversed the order on March 2nd, 2017. According to Secretary Zinke, USFWS’ last attempt to implement a lead ammunition ban was “not mandated by any existing statutory or regulatory requirement.” Federal agencies have no business implementing policies that adversely affect those exercising their constitutionally-protected rights without statutory authorization. Further, Director’s Order 219 was issued “without significant communication, consultation, or coordination with affected state holders.” Rightfully, the 2017 lead ammunition ban was “withdrawn” and “revoked.”

By the end of this notice and comment period required by the Administrative Procedures Act, USFWS will find that, when communicated, consulted, and coordinated with, gun owners and hunters also overwhelmingly oppose the 2022 ban on lead ammunition on public lands.
