Austin Gun Store Owner Stands Up to Washington’s Bureaucratic Gun Grab

Austin, Texas, gun store owner Michael Cargill has filed a lawsuit against the ATF because of the federal government’s recent bump stock ban.

The U.S. Department of Justice issued the federal ban on bump stocks in a decision it made in December.

Bump stock owners were given 90 days to destroy or turn in their devices, but that grace period ended at midnight earlier this week.

Despite turning in his bump stocks to the Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) field office on Monday, March 26, 2019, Cargill refused to sign paperwork giving the government permission to destroy these devices.

Cargill stood firmly against this measure saying “I’m going to comply. I’m going to turn it in, but I’m going to fight. I’m going to fight for everyone in the State of Texas and this country.”
