NFGR Files for Summary Judgement in Forced Reset Trigger Lawsuit

The National Foundation for Gun Rights has filed for summary judgement in our case, NAGR v. Garland. You can read the motion here.

We previously received a preliminary injunction in this case on October 7th, blocking the ATF from enforcing their classification of Forced Reset Triggers as NFA regulated machine guns against our individual plaintiffs and their families, our members, and all downstream customers of commercial members.

The ATF has continued enforcing this rule, and they have even targeted several of our members since Judge Reed O’Connor of the Northern District of Texas issued the preliminary injunction.

This is why we have filed our motion for summary judgement as soon as we have, we want the ATF to be blocked from enforcing this unconstitutional rule against anyone. Your inalienable human rights should not be subject to membership of any organization.

Judge O’Connor has already stated that we are “likely to succeed on the merits” in this case, and that the ATF has no legal grounds for this trigger ban. We are simply asking the court to follow through with these statements to ensure protection from ATF enforcement for all Americans.

It is quite obvious that the ATF has no intention of voluntarily abiding by the court’s ruling on the preliminary injunction, so it is time for strong, decisive action from the court to stop the ATF’s tyranny.

The ATF has appealed the preliminary injunction to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. This means that they are trying to take away the temporary relief ordered at the district court, but our motion for summary judgement will move concurrently towards a ruling on the merits.

If you are a member who has been contacted by the ATF after the injunction was issued on October 7th regarding an FRT, please call our ATF hotline at 877-205-6554.
