Biden's new gun ban is bureaucratic overreach, plain and simple

Published in Blog on April 11, 2022 by Article V Patriot

President Joe Biden is set to release a new "regulation" banning homemade firearms, otherwise known as "ghost guns."

The new rule has been a long time coming. Second Amendment advocates have been sounding the alarm for months, and now the president is making good on his promise to the anti-gun lobby in D.C.

The new rule effectively redefines what it means to be a "firearm." In the past, products that required additional machining to become a firearm were not subject to the same requirements as actual firearms. 

Now, thanks to a reinterpretation by the ATF, even firearm frames and receivers that require extensive machining to become working parts will fall under the same regulations as real, working firearms. This will effectively ban American citizens from making their own firearms at home without getting approval from the government.

Whatever you believe about guns and gun laws, all liberty-loving Americans should agree that bureaucrats in federal agencies should not have the power to create laws.

These new regulations -- to which criminal penalties are attached -- did not come from the peoples' representatives in Congress. They came from unelected law enforcement agents who responded to political pressure from the Democratic side of the aisle. It's that simple. The ATF has always defined firearms by their state of manufacture. Now, all of a sudden, they're changing their definition to appease Biden and his anti-gun allies. 

If bureaucrats rather than representatives make laws, can we really say we live in a "representative republic"?

The Founders of our country fought a bloody war because they weren't properly represented in government. We don't have to resort to those violent measures. Instead, we can call an Article V Convention of States.

A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. Amendments can be proposed, for example, that clarify that Congress -- and only Congress -- has the power to make laws.

When further amendments clarify that "regulations" are synonymous with "laws," the Deep State will be eliminated and The Swamp permanently drained.

Over 5 million Americans and 19 states have joined the Convention of States movement. Will you join them?

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
