GOA Response to SCOTUS’ Denial of Stay on Enforcement of Bump Stock Ban

“We remain convinced that the courts will consign this unlawful, unconstitutional ban to the trash bin of history, where it belongs.”
– Michael Hammond

Springfield, VA – Gun Owners of America (GOA) legislative counsel, Michael Hammond, responded to the Supreme Court’s denial of a stay on the enforcement of the bump stock ban:

“Gun Owners of America is disappointed that the Supreme Court has refused to issue a stay while our challenge to the administration’s illegal bump stock ban is being considered by the courts.

“While GOA cannot advocate that its members violate the law, we predict, given our experience with nine states with similar bans, that a large majority of the 500,000 bump stock owners will refuse to turn in their property in what they view as an illegal, unconstitutional gun grab.

“GOA will continue to fight the issue in the court system, as the case now returns to the lower courts. We remain convinced that the courts will consign this unlawful, unconstitutional ban to the trash bin of history, where it belongs.”

Michael Hammond, or another GOA spokesman, 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 2 million members and activists.
