Dudley Brown’s Colorado-based gun rights group has staked its position further to the right of the 800-pound gun rights gorilla in the room: The National Rifle Association. Responding to the NRA’s call for the ATF to regulate bump fire stocks — not ban, regulate — The National Association for Gun Rights has unleashed the following press release . . .
The National Association for Gun Rights opposes NRA-backed ban on firearm accessories
Washington D.C. – The National Association for Gun Rights is urging members of Congress to withhold their signatures from an anti-gun letter that is currently being circulated by Congressman Adam Kinzinger and Senator Dean Heller — in concert with the NRA — that calls for banning “bump stocks.”
The proposal outlined in the letter will not prevent future crimes or mass shootings, and will only lead to more federal destruction of constitutional rights.
If a gimmicky rifle stock can be banned, what’s next? Federal regulations on magazines, scopes, or bi-pods? A new round of restrictions on other features, like Senator Feinstein’s 1994 gun ban? A full resurrection of her so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban?
Make no mistake — this is a red-herring, playing right into the hands of those who seek an open door to more federal regulations on firearms and accessories.
Despite the NRA’s endorsement of this ban, members of Congress are urged not to add fuel to this fire. The National Association for Gun Rights and its 4.5 million members and supporters will be carefully tracking and grading all support for the anti-gun Kinzinger letter, and all measures reflecting it in Congress.
