Texas Judge blocks Biden rule restricting gun sales

 May 21, 2024

Joe Biden is a liberal, so it's no surprise that he doesn't have much regard for America's Second Amendment. The Biden administration thought that they were going to be able to pull the wool over the eyes of America and restrict our Bill of Rights, but a federal judge in Texas has SMACKED DOWN Joe Biden and his team.

Newsweek is reporting that a "federal judge has blocked a new Biden administration rule that requires gun dealers to run background checks on buyers at gun shows and other places outside of gun shops."

The "gun show loophole" was scheduled to be closed on May 20, 2024, but U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk from Amarillo, Texas, has bought at least a little more time for gun lovers in America.

That's the date that Matthew Kacsmaryk pushed the implementation of Biden's rule back to, and both sides are sure to be scrambling to bolster their arguments before then.

The "gun show loophole" allows unlicensed dealers at gun shows to sell firearms without conducting background checks on buyers. Conservatives across the country are arguing that people should be able to sell firearms at gun shows because other collectible and valuable items are allowed to be traded that way.

After all, many of the guns traded at these shows are highly sought-after or valuable collectibles, and restricting the trading of them could doom a way of life for many Americans.

Do we really need to enforce background checks and make Americans not free to trade and collect firearms?

Opponents of the "gun show loophole" say that since it's a way to sell firearms without the receiver being vetted first, it creates a dangerous situation that allows people who shouldn't be handling firearms to obtain firearms.

The Judge in Amarillo temporarily blocked the rule from being enforced in Texas. Additionally, he said that some gun rights groups would be protected by his decision, such as the Gun Owners of America.

Kacsmaryk's decision comes after a multistate coalition consisting of 26 Republican states filed lawsuits against the Biden administration challenging the rule. Gun lovers across the country are sure to love Kacsmaryk's decision to pause the law from taking effect.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton

Paxton, who led the group of states, was obviously very pleased with the decision.

"I am relieved that we were able to secure a restraining order that will prevent this illegal rule from taking effect," he said. "The Biden Administration cannot unilaterally overturn Americans' constitutional rights and nullify the Second Amendment."

Residents of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Utah aren't as lucky as people in other parts of the country, as the law will still go into effect there. The judge claimed that those states had "failed to establish that they had standing to challenge it."

Donald Trump's influence

It may come as no surprise that a judge as freedom-loving as Kacsmaryk was appointed by a conservative, and that man was none other than Donald J. Trump.

Thanks Donald. Our 45th president standing up for Americans against the big government is paying dividends even now that Trump is no longer in office!
