America, Memes, and Alcohol: AMER "Let's not celebrate too quickly. [The] bump stock ban will likely be tied up in court for years. Only hours after the Trump administration released its final regulation, Gun Owners of America announced it would file a lawsuit." -Senator Dianne Feinstein, December 19, 2018 It's official! GOA has filed suit against the ATF's illegal and unconstitutional bump stock ban. And Dianne Feinstein is not happy. Official statement: December 26, 2018 For immediate release GOA Files Suit Against ATF’s Illegal and Unconstitutional Bump Stock Ban Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America (GOA) and its Foundation (GOF) filed suit today against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) for their regulations on bump stocks. Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America said, “Our suit challenges the legality of ATF’s action and asks for an injunction to stop enforcement of the regulations. “These dangerous regulations can go much farther than just bump stocks. The goal of the anti-gun left is, ultimately, not just banning bump stocks, but, rather, putting ‘points on the board’ toward its goal of banning civilian ownership of all firearms.” The suit is filed strategically in Western District of Michigan, and GOA is joined by other pro-gun groups and individuals. “Not coincidentally, Michigan is located within the jurisdiction of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals - a circuit which is not only very pro-gun, but also has been more skeptical of illegal government regulatory actions than many other circuits in the country,” Pratt stated. “GOA is happy to announce that the Virginia Citizens Defense League has joined the suit as a plaintiff - as well as Tim from the Military Arms Channel and GOA’s Texas state director Rachel Malone,” Pratt continued. “And I’m pleased to report that several state gun organizations, such as the Oregon Firearms Federation and BamaCarry, have contacted GOA and will be contributing financially, and by other means, to this case. 2A gunowners gunownersofamerica goasupporters bumpstock

America, Memes, and News: GOA NEWS RELEASE MEDIA CONTACT: JORDAN STEIN DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS JORDAN.STEIN@GUNOWNERS.ORG 703-321-8585 December 18, 2018 For immediate release Gun owners of America to File Suit Against Arbitrary ATF Bump Stock Ban Springfield, VA Gun Owners of America (GOA) and its Foundation (GOF) will be filing suit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) and the Department of Justice to seek an injunction protecting gun owners from their illegal prohibition of bump stocks. Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America said, "As written, this case has important implications for gun owners since, in the coming days, an estimated half a million bump stock owners will have the difficult decision of either destroying or surrendering their valuable property or else risk felony prosecution. ATFs claim that it can rewrite Congressional law cannot pass legal muster. Agencies are not free to rewrite laws under the guise of 'interpretation' of a statute, especially where e law's meaning is clear. "The new ATF regulations would arbitrarily redefine bump stocks as 'machineguns and, down the road, could implicate the right to own AR-15's and many other lawfully owned semi-automatic firearms," Pratt continued. "ATF's new bump stock regulation clearly violates federal law, as bump stocks do not qualify as machineguns under the federal statute." For more information about the suit, or GOA and GOF's recommendation for bump stock owners, please see here Erich Pratt, or another GOA spokesmen, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over 1.5 million members and activists.

America, Children, and Chris Evans: Chris Evans @ChrisEvans Amazing CNN@CNN Dick's Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack: "We know there's gonna be some backlash... We concluded that if these kids are brave enough to organize and do what they're doing then we should be brave enough to take this stand." cnn.it/2HS9f0c BREAKING NEWS DICK'S SPORTING GOODS WILL STOP SELLING ASSAULT-STYLE RIFLES CN Edward W. Stack Chairman and CEO, Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc. M34 OPAY ll 9812Koviews DETROIT 58 HOUSTON 82° NEW DAY wretchedor30: kialessa: odinsblog: The list of businesses dropping the NRA is growing No, no, no; Dick’s take is so much bigger than that. Dick’s did not aim at the NRA, Dick’s took DIRECT ACTION, changing their own gun sale policies and calling on politicians to change the laws. (That’s the TL;DR.) Dick’s Sporting Goods has said: “We at DICK’S Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones. But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have tremendous respect and admiration for the students organizing and making their voices heard regarding gun violence in schools and elsewhere in our country. We have heard you. The nation has heard you. We support and respect the Second Amendment, and we recognize and appreciate that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible, law-abiding citizens. But we have to help solve the problem that’s in front of us. Gun violence is an epidemic that’s taking the lives of too many people, including the brightest hope for the future of America – our kids. Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been. Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens. We believe it’s time to do something about it. Beginning today, DICK’S Sporting Goods is committed to the following: We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles. We had already removed them from all DICK’S stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field Stream stores. We will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age.    We will no longer sell high capacity magazines. We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly. At the same time, we implore our elected officials to enact common sense gun reform and pass the following regulations: Ban assault-style firearms Raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21 Ban high capacity magazines and bump stocks Require universal background checks that include relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law Ensure a complete universal database of those banned from buying firearms   Close the private sale and gun show loophole that waives the necessity of background checks We hope others join us in this effort to let our kids know that their pleas are being taken seriously.Some will say these steps can’t guarantee tragedies like Parkland will never happen again. They may be correct – but if common sense reform is enacted and even one life is saved, it will have been worth it. We deeply believe that this country’s most precious gift is our children. They are our future. We must keep them safe. Sincerely,Edward W. Stack Chairman CEO DICK’S Sporting Goods” Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been. Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens. We believe it’s time to do something about it. – And that’s how heroes are made. Fuck yeah I’mma go buy a sporting good now thanks Dicks

Fire, Guns, and Memes: Florida Moves Forward With Bill That Will Train and Arm Teachers With Guns @balleralert Florida Moves Forward With Bill That Will Train and Arm Teachers With Guns - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The process for bills to pass teachers being trained and armed with guns is moving quickly in Florida. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the Feb. 14, terror attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Florida’s House, and Senate started calling for weapons in the school. The House bills being pushed forward would use a $67 million budget to create a “school marshalls” program which will train teachers and other school officials to carry concealed guns. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only has Trump said he’d like to arm 20 percent of teachers, he also says he’ll give bonuses to the ones who go through with the program. If the new legislation passes the age requirement for buying guns will rise to 21. Other changes include: banning the sale of bump stocks that allow some semi-automatic rifles to fire as quickly as an automatic, a three-day waiting period for people purchasing a gun, and another $400 million will go towards other school mental health resources. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Florida’s state House and Senate are both controlled by the Republican Party.
