Garland v. Cargill — Amicus Brief

Jeremiah Morgan Administrative Law, Constitutional Law, Firearms Law, Statutory Construction, U. S. Supreme Court

Today, our firm filed our fifth amicus brief opposing the ATF’s Rule banning bumpstocks — and our third amicus brief in this case. Our amicus brief argued that the bumpstock rule was politically motivated and was not based on a better interpretation of the statutes relating to machineguns. We also explained how the technical mechanisms of a semi-automatic rifle operates, both with and without bumpstocks, and how they differ from fully automatic rifles. Finally, we argued that bumpstock rule should be invalidated as a matter of constitutional avoidance as upholding the rule implicates Second Amendment issues.
