Obama's Gun Control Initiative Challenged in Federal Lawsuit

U.S. President Barack Obamas expansion of background checks for would-be gun buyers is being challenged in a lawsuit by a political activist who claims the changes violate the Constitution and the federal rule-making process.

...

It is clearly arbitrary and capricious for the defendants, each and every one of them, to now suddenly adopt and implement a new and different interpretation for no other reason than the political preferences of temporary occupants of elected office, attorney Larry Klayman said in a complaint filed at the U.S. court in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Klayman, the founder of the political watchdog group Freedom Watch, claims the background-check initiative violates the constitutions Second Amendment, which the U.S. Supreme Court has said guarantees an individuals right to bear arms for self-defense.

Rule Making

Even if constitutional, the redefinition circumvented the federal rule-making process, he said. Klayman ... is seeking a court order blocking the executive action and declaring the measures unlawful.


Named as defendants are the president, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Thomas Brandon, who heads the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Patrick Rodenbush, a spokesman for the U.S. Justice Department, didnt immediately reply to a telephone message seeking comment.

The case is Klayman v. Obama, 16-cv-80087, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida (West Palm Beach).

Shouldn't the lawsuit be against the fact that POTUS cannot make laws - that laws are up to congress? Might be easier to prove than having it be a 2nd Amendment issue.

I wonder if they will defend the actions by pointing out that they didn't actually change anything lol Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk

I'm taking the other side of this. I think this suit is a high risk low reward. Obama and his minions and handlers wee careful to stay within the bounds of his auhority. If they overstepped it, it wasn't agregiously.

I predict this lawsuit loses and makes us look bad, and reinforces anti talking points.

Wait so does this halt that 41P law then while this case goes on ? Because that would really suck. I was 3 months away from finally getting to own an SBR.

I doubt it, that's a completely separate issue from the executive actions the lawsuit is about, it just happened to be signed on the same day
