Texas Manufacturer Sues Government

April 15, 2019

 

RW Arms, a firearms dealer based in Fort Worth Texas, filed a lawsuit against the federal government. The bump stocks ban will force the company to destroy over 72,000 bump stocks. EW Arms, considers themselves to be the largest bump stock supplier in the country.  They want fair market value compensation for their inventory of bump stocks estimated to be around $20 million.

 

The company handed over their entire inventory of bump stocks on March 26th to local law enforcement to be destroyed to comply with an order by the Trump administration.

 

The ban, issued in December by then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, banned the sale of bump stocks and required bump stock owners to dispose of them or turn them over to the ATF.

 

“Without legislation, the government was able to overturn the previous ruling on bump stocks effectively turning law abiding gun owners into felons overnight if they were not turned in or destroyed,” Michael Stewart of RW Arms said in a statement. “This is an injustice, overreach, and infringement on our 2nd amendment and 5th amendment rights."
