Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has filed a lawsuit accusing the ATF’s rulemaking of seeking to “regolare incompiuto, parti di armi da fuoco non funzionanti come se fossero armi da fuoco complete” così come “ban homemade guns.”
“The ATF is attempting to overshoot the authority granted to it by Congress,” Brnovich said in a statement. “The rulemakings are unconstitutional, impractical, and would likely put a large number of parts manufacturers out of business.”
Brnovich’s complaint further alleges that the ATF’s rulemaking takes steps toward the “illegal creation” of a national firearms registry that would require firearms retailers to keep all sales records beyond their current 20-year retention requirement and eventually turn them over to the ATF instead of responsibly destroying them.
Brnovich’s said such a policy would potentially threaten the privacy of gun owners negli Stati Uniti.
Brnovich previously led a 20-state coalition in a comment letter rebuking a proposed rule that would give the ATF The power to regular firearm parts.
Fox News has contacted the ATF for comment and will update this story accordingly.
Brnovhich’s lawsuit has been joined by his counterparts in West Virginia, Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Carolina del Sud, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming as well as firearms dealers Morehouse Enterprises, LLC, Bridge City Ordinance, Gun Owners of America, and Gun Owners Foundation.
