JUST IN: Trump-Appointed Judge Halts Biden’s ATF Rule Expanding Gun Background Checks

On Sunday, a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order against the Biden Administration, halting the ATF’s unconstitutional rule that sought to expand background checks for gun purchases.

Last month, the Biden administration announced the implementation of the “Engaged in the Business” Final Rule.

The Final Rule aimed to address the “gun show loophole,” ensuring that all gun dealers, no matter where they sell firearms, adhere to federal background check requirements.

“There’s no such thing as a “gun-show loophole,” and despite everything wrong with this despotic overreach, ATF even makes this clear when answering the public comments of “supporters.” Your intentionally deceitful commentary mirrors that of history’s most vile government actors,” Firearms Policy Coalition wrote on X.

Shortly after the Biden administration’s announcement, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton led a coalition in suing the ATF to block the “Final Rule.”

On Sunday, US District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, appointed by Trump, blocked the Biden administration’s “Final Rule” before it could take effect.

As reported by Reuters:

A federal judge on Sunday blocked the Biden administration from fully implementing a new rule that would require gun dealers to obtain licenses and conduct background checks when selling firearms at gun shows and online.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk in Amarillo temporarily restrained, opens new tab the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ rule from being enforced in Republican-led Texas or against members of several gun rights groups.

“We Just Secured A Temporary Restraining Order Against Biden Administration, Stopping Unlawful ATF Rule from Taking Effect: I am relieved that we were able to secure a restraining order that will prevent this illegal rule from taking effect. The Biden Administration cannot unilaterally overturn Americans’ constitutional rights and nullify the Second Amendment,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement on X.
