Pfluger Takes on Biden's Feds at ATF Over New Ruling Infringing on the 2nd Amendment

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Pfluger is taking on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives over a new ruling on stabilizing braces.  Pfluger says the new rule infringes on Second Amendment Rights.  

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) recently issued a final ruling to regulate stabilizing braces, which redesigns the definition of “rifle” to include weapons with an accessory made to be fired from the shoulder. Rep. August Pfluger (TX-11) released a statement criticizing the decision:

“Stabilizing braces were originally designed to help disabled veterans enjoy recreational shooting without the difficulty of controlling heavy pistols,” said Rep. Pfluger.

“The Biden Administration’s efforts to ban stabilizing braces infringes on the Second Amendment Rights of these legal gun owners. This new rule is entirely unacceptable and makes millions of law-abiding citizens, including disabled veterans, felons overnight. I am committed to fighting for the Second Amendment Rights of my constituents and gun owners across the country. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to protect your right to bear arms by supporting legislation like the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, the Firearm Industry Non-Discrimination (FIND) Act, and the No User Fees for Gun Owners Act.”

A right given by God that was recognized by our founding fathers as necessary to enshrine in our constitution has entitled every American. With stupid people out there who also have guns and don't act right, better hope you don't miss out on protecting yourself, regardless of the origin of your freedom to do so.

However, had the Founders foreseen how wrongfully we would interpret their wording of the Second Amendment thereby giving rise to our firearms nightmare they would have worded it far more carefully.

The wording of the 2nd Amendment is clear and concise…if any misunderstanding it’s on the part of demo-libs who think our Constitution is a “living document” therefore up to interpretation ;)

When you say that we've interpreted the wording of the second amendment wrong, how specifically do you mean that we've misapplied it as the years have dwindled on? We meaning the people, not the government.


This whole thread reminds me of the movie "Idiocracy".

It starts with Pfluger's verbally puking about the Second Amendment and how that which he here claims to find offensive is bloody near a offense to all that is good in the world.  It is simply a load of the usual slavish rightist crap that does little to address the real issues.

Then we have Bots, whose argument does not deserve any response whatsoever because it is moronic.

Will's verbal vomit has the same value as Bots.

In addition to the movie "Idiocracy" I am reminded of the science fiction novel "The Marching Morons".

The least the government should do is sell at a discount to us the same kind of weaponry they left for the taliban. I heard you can buy very cheap armored trucks, full autos, and advanced night vision in Afghanistan rn but I can’t afford the trip.

Maybe, instead of reading “science fiction novels”, you should reread the 2nd Amendment…apparently you missed the part about how our CONSTITUTION right “shall not be infringed” ;)

Well, there was once a right to privacy and now the supreme court has thrown that out the window, so we shall see what happens.

Besides, you can have all the muskets you want, since those were the "arms" they are referring to.

Defend your privacy that wasn't enshrined with the words "shall not be infringed", with speech or whatever. Literally any idiot who disagrees with you and has a gun and wants to be evil can at will erase you from planet earth indiscriminately and never have to listen to you talk about how it was morally wrong or not a fair fight. Point being, evil people with guns aren't very receptive to rational thought or communicating meaningful dialogue. They understand violent force or the threat thereof... not speech. If it wasn't true then why do non violent people call authorities who can operate with violence lawfully to protect them or fight their fight when a tweaker breaks in their house or whatnot... People who "don't believe in guns", call people with guns to help them stop evil people all the time. Save your speech and the middle man, protect yourself actually, physically, because words can't do that.
