How States can Undermine Biden’s Unconstitutional “Ghost Gun” Rule

Like President Trump’s bump stock ban in 2018, Biden’s new rule is unconstitutional in more ways than one. First, the Second Amendment specifically prohibits the federal government from infringing on the right to keep and bear arms. Second, this infringement doesn’t even stem from Congress passing a law. Rather, it was carried out by unelected bureaucrats in an executive branch agency who received 211,564 comments during the rulemaking process.

My Constitutional objection is to the existence of a Gooferment “agency” that is the rule maker, the prosecutor, and the executioner. We have a separation of powers to limit the powers of out-of-control politicians and bureaucrats.
In this case the ATF, but there are many many more.
If the ATF wants to make diktats, then some other entity must enforce them and adjudicate them.
Hence, the ATF, as well as the EPA, the DofAg, and others must immediately be shut down until they can be reconstituted consistent with the Constitution.
