Judge Moves This Ban Forward

Gun rights activists have been dealt another blow following a federal judge’s decision to allow the Trump administration to ban “bump-stocks.”

The attachment allows for a more rapid fire and was used in the deadliest mass shooting the United States has ever faced. President Trump had pledged to ban the attachment in response to the tragedy. 

While preliminary injunctions had been sought to halt the move, District Judge Dabney Friedrich wrote that, “None of the plaintiffs’ challenges merit preliminary injunctive relief.”

The rule is scheduled to go into effect on March 26. Any owners of the stock attachment will be called to turn in or destroy the attachments.  

Plaintiffs in the case expressed their dismay with the ruling by releasing a statement. 

“We are disappointed but unsurprised by the court’s ruling tonight denying a temporary injunction to protect Americans from an unlawful and unconstitutional regulation,” the statement read.

It is unclear how this ruling might influence the relationship between President Trump and his supporters.
