Last week, a Fifth Circuit District Judge issued an injunction blocking ATF enforcement of its new pistol brace rule that goes into effect tomorrow. The judge made it clear that the injunction covers all of the named plaintiffs in the suit including all members of the Firearms Policy Coalition. That, in effect, extended the injunction nationwide to anyone who is or would like to become an FPC member.
Coincidentally, the FPC realigned its membership structure over the holiday weekend, making it easy for anyone to become an FPC member for as little as $20. Here’s their announcement . . .
On Sunday, May 28, 2023, the Board of Directors of Firearms Policy Coalition made a number of formal changes to the membership structure of the organization. First, the Board granted an Individual Membership to all individual monetary donors of FPC who have supported FPC’s activities through financial contribution(s) of twenty U.S. Dollars ($20) or more from June 1, 2022, through May 31, 2023, inclusive. Those memberships will have an effective date of June 1, 2022, and an expiration date of December 31, 2023, unless the Individual Member renews the granted membership on or before the end of 2023.
This granted membership will ensure that all individuals who supported the work of the organization in the period with a financial contribution of $20 or more are officially recognized by FPC as an Individual Member. FPC will update its membership records accordingly on or about June 1, 2023, and then send a message confirming the granted membership status to all such individuals by email as soon as possible. This one-time donor membership program will not affect the membership term of current FPC members.
Additionally, the Board established a new structure for the classification of certain types of members, including:
- Individual Members (for individual persons)
- Commercial Members (for for-profit entities)
- Affiliate Members (for non-profit entities)
All current FPC members in good standing will be reorganized into the appropriate classification of membership under the new membership structure. To support the new membership structure, FPC will soon establish new online member application forms for each membership class. In the meantime:
