A district judge prevented Joe Biden's executive order from taking effect on June 1. It would have required owners of stabilizers for firearms to register their weapons and submit to regulations.
A lawsuit was filed against the ATF by various gun groups and Texas. A judge in the state's Southern District Court ruled that the rule would not be implemented.
The state of Texas claimed that the law was unconstitutional because it would prevent law-abiding citizens from defending themselves. It also claimed that the costs associated with implementing the law would have an adverse effect on a small portion of the workforce. Judge Tipton agreed with their arguments.
The executive order was the latest attempt by Biden's administration to target gun owners. It's clear that he's trying to take away the rights of gun owners in the US. However, a victory for the Second Amendment can be seen in the court's ruling.

Erich Pratt, the senior vice president of Gun Owners for America, praised the judge for his ruling. He noted that the group's members had been facing serious charges because of the arbitrary classification of plastic components by the ATF.
The ATF has not commented on the matter. Although this ruling is a positive step for gun owners, we must still remain vigilant against the efforts of the Biden administration to take away Second Amendment rights.
