    The ATF has released proposed rules to crack down on so-called “ghost guns.”

    Politicians have made up the anti-gun pejorative “ghost guns” to try and frighten Americans and justify their assault on your Second Amendment right to craft a homemade firearm.

    With the ATF now actively accepting public comments on their proposed rules, Gun Owners of America needs YOUR help flooding the ATF offices with a constant barrage of letters telling them to keep their paws off of our God-given rights.

    At a time when the price of everyday goods and materials is skyrocketing, your basic right to be able to craft your own homemade firearm has never been more important.

    While you are helping us raise hell on the ATF for their new war on “ghost guns,” Gun Owners of America is SUING the rabidly anti-gun city of Philadelphia for its illegal ban on “ghost guns.”

    We just filed a lawsuit along with four Philadelphians seeking to invalidate Philadelphia’s illegal and unconstitutional prohibition on its residents and citizens from making and finishing firearms for their own private use.

    Pennsylvania Courts have told Philadelphia no less than THREE TIMES they are NOT permitted to locally regulate firearms, as defined in PA Code Title 18, Second 6120.

    But anti-gunners, who have a burning hatred of the Constitution, don’t care about the rule of law.

    That’s why Gun Owners of America will remain UNWAVERING in our defense of your God-given rights as the Biden-Harris Administration and their anti-gun lapdogs across America wage war on the Second Amendment.

    But we need YOU to take action — and that begins by stopping the ATF from its latest war on “ghost guns.”

    Please Take Action by signing GOA's pre-written letter to the ATF by clicking here.



    Written by Aidan Johnston Published: 21 May 2021

    On April 8th, President Biden announced the nomination of David Chipman to lead the “AFT”—an obvious blunder given that he was talking about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (or ATF).

    David Chipman poses a grave threat to the Second Amendment if given the reigns at ATF—an agency already predisposed to infringe on your right to keep and bear arms.

    GOA needs you to contact your Senators—especially weak Republicans and so-called moderate Democrats—to make sure they know ALL the scandals surrounding this unconscionable nominee.

    The Senate is expected to start hearings on the Chipman nomination as early as Wednesday, May 26.

    So read up, get the facts, and call your Senate office to give them the full scoop!

    The Registered Gun Control Lobbyist

    David Chipman began his career regulating gun rights with the ATF. He left ATF to lobby for Everytown for Gun Safety and later the Giffords Law Center. United States Senate Lobbying Disclosure Act (LDA) Reports indicate that David Chipman made hundreds of thousands of dollars a year from 2017 to 2020 lobbying against the constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms. He also made over a million dollars lobbying for gun control in just six months between 2012 and 2013.

    Over the years, lobbyist David Chipman worked against the constitutionally-protected rights of the people by supporting a host of gun control proposals and opposing bills to restore the Second Amendment from infringements. Please note that this list is by no means comprehensive. It is merely provided to provide insight into the mindset of anti-constitutional gun prohibitionist and gun control lobbyist.

    Silencers Help Us Save Hearing Act

    Bipartisan Background Checks Act
    Gun Manufacturers Accountability Act
    Gun Violence Prevention Research Act
    Stop Online Ammunition Sales Act

    Bumpstocks and Acceleration Devices Act

    The Spiteful Gun Prohibitionist

    As noted earlier, Chipman began his career by spending 25 years enforcing gun control at the ATF. Chipman’s first postings at the Washington and Houston ATF Field Divisions led to his involvement in the 51-day federal siege on Mount Carmel, a compound and church belonging to the religious sect Branch-Davidians.

    After the compound burned down ending the ATF-FBI siege, investigators uncovered 76 bodies, 25 of which were children. The Daily Mail uncovered a photograph (top) of David Chipman “posing in the aftermath of the Waco siege.”

    David Chipman has also unapologetically made false claims about the Waco Siege, claiming incorrectly that “cult members,” a derogatory term for the religious sect Branch-Davidians, “used 2 .50 caliber Barretts to shoot down two Texas Air National Guard helicopters”—which verifiably did not happen.

    Special Agent in Charge Chipman later left his career in law enforcement to make millions of dollars lobbying against the constitutional rights of the American people. At Everytown for Gun Safety and Giffords Law Center, he lobbied in favor of radical anti-gun legislation that would infringe upon the free exercise of the Second Amendment as we know it.

    In particular, Chipman lobbied against the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act despite being a gun owner and a self-professed concealed carrier.

    Chipman also advocates for “arrest[ing prospective gun purchasers in gun stores] before committing crimes rather than responding after the fact” following a “failed background check.” For reference, according to an Obama Department of Justice report from 2011, the background check “false positive” denial rate is roughly 95 percent.

    As Senior Policy Advisor for the anti-constitutional rights activist group Giffords Law Center, Chipman wrote an article entitled Legal and Lethal: 9 Products That Could Be the Next Bump Stock. The document purports to show how the ATF could arbitrarily ban certain shotguns, pistols, ammunition, and even magazines by regulating them under the National Firearms Act without an act of Congress.

    However, the 6th Circuit court of appeals 3 judge panel ruled that “a bump stock cannot be classified as a machine gun” in Gun Owners of America v. Garland ordering a lower court to provide a preliminary injunction against the ATF’s implementation of the bump stock ban.

    Clearly, a bump stock is not a machine gun and neither is a detachable magazine that can hold over 10 rounds. In fact, any attempted regulation based on the bump stock ban would be just as illegal and just as much an abuse of power.

    Given the 6th Circuit’s ruling on the ATF’s overreach with the bump stock ban, does David Chipman still believe the ATF should mirror its actions on bump stocks to arbitrarily and illegally ban more firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition?

    During a period of dramatically increased rioting and calls to defund the police, David Chipman also publicly mocked Americans for choosing to buy firearms for the first time, saying that first-time gun owners were “more like Tiger King,” telling them to “only bring [their guns] out if the zombies start to appear.”

    For all of the above reasons and more, President Biden’s ATF Director Nominee David Chipman is unfit to hold public office.

    So please, contact your Senator and let them know that Gun Owners of America will score all votes in favor of David Chipman as anti-gun votes.

    “In a fiery statement released Thursday, Erich Pratt, GOA’s Senior Vice President, promised that they’d ‘spare no expense to defeat Biden’s tyrannical agenda.'” — The Daily Wire, April 8, 2021

    Joe Biden just bypassed Congress to attack your Second Amendment rights!Donate to GOF's Litigation Fund

    Biden is targeting homemade and pistol-braced firearms. And he is calling on Congress and states to enact Red Flag gun confiscation orders.

    Like a dictator, Biden is seeking to unilaterally regulate firearms that gun owners currently own. And he’s doing this via executive action—bypassing the constitutional requirements which give Congress the authority to pass legislation.

    Gun Owners of America is on the ground RIGHT NOW in Washington D.C. fighting for your rights. And our legal team is already preparing to challenge Biden’s gun ban agenda at every step in the process.

    But we need YOUR help to secure funds for our legal team as we continue to rein in this rabidly anti-gun administration.

    Please make a tax-deductible contribution to Gun Owners Foundation’s Legal Defense Fund as we keep fighting to protect YOUR God-given rights.

    Contribute now to help defend the Second Amendment

    GOA stands completely opposed to any effort by the Biden Administration to regulate self-built firearms or kits used to assemble a homemade firearm in any manner.

    The practice of making a firearm at home is older than our Republic itself, and this tradition is certainly guaranteed under the Second Amendment today!

    Joe Biden knows he cannot beat gun owners in Congress, so instead he’s abusing his executive authority—throwing the FULL WEIGHT of the federal bureaucracy behind his attack on gun owners.

    Biden has ordered the Attorney General Merrick Garland to further regulate homemade guns and parts kits even without a new act of Congress. And he’s ordered a pistol-braced firearm ban—treating them as SBRs under the NFA—that is certain to result in the confiscation, destruction or coerced registration of millions of pistol AR-15’s and other legally-purchased pistols.

    But Gun Owners of America has the “street cred” to beat the Biden administration at its own game.

    In case you missed our exciting news from recent days, Gun Owners of America and our sister organization Gun Owners Foundation JUST WON our lawsuit to halt the implementation of the bump stock ban.

    The legal precedent set by our victory will be INSTRUMENTAL in reigning in the administrative state and PREVENTING the ATF from implementing Biden’s gun control.

    With your help, GOA and GOF are going to SUE the Biden Administration.

    But understand that this is going to be a long, protracted battle. We are already in communication with legislators in Congress and are coordinating efforts to fight the administration with every legal tool that we have available.

    However, we can’t do this without you. So please make a tax-deductible contribution to GOF’s Legal Defense Fund so that we can beat back these unconstitutional new restrictions.

    Thank you for your help.



    VICTORY: Court Rules a Bump Stock is NOT a Machine Gun

    Springfield, VA – Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit reversed the district court’s decision, which had denied GOA’s motion for a preliminary injunction on bump stocks. Gun Owners of America is seeking an injunction to prevent ATF from implementing a final rule incorrectly classifying bump stocks as machineguns under federal law.

    This case was brought by Gun Owners of America (GOA), Gun Owners Foundation (GOF), the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), Matt Watkins, Tim Harmsen of the Military Arms Channel, and GOA’s Texas Director, Rachel Malone.

    “Today’s court decision is great news and told gun owners what they already knew,” said GOA Senior Vice President Erich Pratt. “We are glad the court applied the statute accurately, and struck down the ATF’s illegal overreach and infringement of gun owners’ rights.”



    Gun Control in Colorado Fails to Stop Evil Killer

    Springfield, VA – On Monday, an unchecked Mass Public Murderer claimed the lives of at least ten Americans, including one police officer, at a King Soopers, a store whose corporate policy restricts the rights of law-abiding citizens to bear arms in Boulder, Colorado.

    Unsurprisingly, anti-gun politicians and lobbyists such as Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America politicized the tragedy — calling for more gun control laws, saying:

    Our leaders owe Americans #MoreThanThoughtsAndPrayers. Send your senators a message and tell them to take action NOW.

    They also promoted Senate Democrats’ calls for gun control:

    As we prepare for tomorrow’s hearing on gun violence prevention, gun violence is once again ravaging our nation—from the two mass shootings in the past week, to the daily toll of homicides, suicides, and accidental deaths.

    Thoughts & prayers aren’t enough. It’s time for action.

    Aidan Johnston, Director of Federal Affairs, answered these reactions by stating, “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Everytown for Gun Safety fail to recognize or apologize for their role in facilitating the present Mass Public Shooting.

    “Both gun control groups spent years harassing Kroger Co. Family of Stores like King Soopers into banning the open carry of firearms. The corporation finally capitulated in 2019, ‘[a]fter five years of pressure from Everytown and Moms Demand Action.’”

    By demanding law-abiding gun owners shop elsewhere, Moms Demand Action and Everytown practically turned King Soopers into a soft target ripe for exploitation by criminals like this mass murderer.

    “Moms Demand Action and Everytown — not Second Amendment Advocates — should apologize for their role in advocating for gun control and disarming the victims of this tragedy,” Johnston continued. “Everytown and Moms Demand Action don’t want our thoughts and prayers, but they also refuse to empower Americans with the very tools used to end this tragic Mass Public Shooting: guns.”

    Armed citizen engagement is a proven and effective tool [see page 5]. Gun owners like Stephen Willeford and Jack Wilson have used firearms successfully to save lives during active shooter incidents.

    Johnston concluded:

    Americans should have their right to carry firearms for self-defense restored by Congress with legislation like the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2021 and by state legislatures with Constitutional Carry.

    Colorado’s Universal Background Checks, similar to H.R. 8 as recently passed by the House of Representatives, did not prevent this Mass Public Murderer from obtaining his firearm.

    And an unconstitutional, so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban would not prevent this criminal from possessing an AR-15.

    None of Colorado’s existing gun control prevented this Mass Public Shooting and no amount of gun control ever will.

    Aidan Johnston, or another GOA spokesperson, is available for interviews. Gun Owners of America is a grassroots nonprofits dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. For more information, visit GOA’s Press Center.
