Gun Owners of America (GOA) Senior Vice President Erich Pratt released the following statement after Biden’s Justice Department proposed new regulations on homemade firearms:
The proposed rules by Biden’s Justice Department seek to add undue burdens on homebuilt firearms. Forcing purchasers of unfinished chunks of metal and plastic to undergo a background check from a broken NICS system is simply asinine. Just as with other forms of gun control, these regulations will leave honest people with one less method for self-defense but will be completely ignored by criminals.
Just as GOA opposed the ATF’s actions on bump stocks, we will continue to rally gun owners for public comments against the proposed rule — and should it go into effect — this Second Amendment assault will be met with legal action from GOA and our Foundation.
