Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in the case National Association for Gun Rights vs. Garland in federal court in the Northern District of Texas.

On Thursday, federal Judge Reed O'Connor issued a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against President Biden's ATF's attempt to classify Forced Reset Trigger (FRT-15) as an illegal machine gun. RBT's email about the judge's ruling said:

"Federal Judge, Reed O'Connor issues a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against the DOJ/ATF related to their tyrannical overreach of the FRT-15 and other Forced Reset Triggers."

Judge O'Connor stated, "[T]he court finds that the Plaintiffs have demonstrated a strong likelihood of success on the merits... It is substantially likely that the ATF's regulation containing a broadened definition of 'machinegun' exceeds the scope of its authority under the GCA [Gun Control Act of 1968]."
