Welcome to the Live to Shoot podcast. My name is Jeff Doel and I've been a licensed farm dealer for the last 16 years. In this podcast, we're talking about all things related to the Second Amendment, as well as anything else going on in the news or any interesting story that I'm like my personal life. So welcome, welcome, welcome. It is beginning of June and we're off to the beginning of summer. And so hope everybody's got great plans. Nothing on my docket yet, too much except I am going to. Steamboat for a few days next month. But anyway, I digress. So this has been a week of a lot of things happening, but nothing really happening. And lemme tell you what I I mean by that. So the big thing on the calendar for this week was June 1st, May 31st, and that's when the grace period for registering your. Pistol braces would end and you would not have to pay a, a tax stamp. So the rule when effect began January, they gave till may end of May to register where you would not have to pay a tax stamp. Now that has passed and so the rules already been in effect. So all the way up until now, you were really a felon. If you had not registered it because you were in possession of it. The fact that the date May 31st has passed, only means now that you, you would have to pay$200 to get it done. So nothing really, from a legal standpoint has changed. So not unclear about how the enforcement would, is still working on this because the grace period wasn't that they weren't gonna enforce it. They just were giving you the, to then to register for free. Well anyway, that's passed. But along the lines, you know, things have been happening. And one of those was, you know, we've already talked about the. Injunction Temporary injunction that was placed by the Fifth Circuit for the Firearms Policy Coalition in maximum defense against Garland. And that members of those were given a temporary injunction. And then this week another injunction came down, and this was from the Southern District and this was for the members of the gun owners of America in the state of Texas who had also had a lawsuit against the atf. Now, This makes a lot of sense because the Fifth Circuit, which already entered the injunction, is over the Southern district of Texas. So the Southern District of Texas is kind of a subject to the fifth district. And so obviously the judge in the Southern district is saying, you know, well, I'm gonna wait and see what my bosses do essentially on this before I make a ruling. So that's really what happened. But now that's, you know, gun Owners of America Fire with Policy coalition members. Are covered by an injunction now it's still a lot of gray area about current members. Did you have be a member when the lawsuit was filed? Did you have be a member at the by end of the year? I don't know, but you know, everybody's encouraging people to go out and join these organizations. I need to, my bad, I haven't joined all of them. You know, so in future you can maybe lean on some of these protections that they're able to, to get in these, in these cases. Now the concern is, is that the government is gonna subpoena the gun Owners of America or firearm policy for a listing of all their members so they can know, quote unquote, you know, know who's protected. So you know, that's what do you do, right? But anyway. So those injunctions are in place June 1st and has come and gone. And according to the reload, they contacted the ATF to find out how many people had registered their pistol braces. Now, based on the congressional research group, they estimated that there's anywhere between 10. And 30 million of these devices out there, the numbers really ranged anywhere from three to 10 to 30. But I think the co the consensus is it's closer to the high end of 30 million than it is on the low end. So let's just be conservative and say 15 million felons are out there right now. 15 million of you are felons because, Of this new law, but how many of you went and sought your, your, the, the legal remedy and registered your, your pistol brace by May 31st? According to the atf, 255,000 people registered it far shy of 15 million. I think it's just a classic, you know, non-compliance thumbing our nose at the ATF per se, so, Interesting developments. Where is it gonna go? I don't know. I believe like, like I said, that this is unconstitutional. It will be ruled that way. And then what happens to all those that register that didn't need to register? Right. Who knows, they've already got their name out there. But anyway, just so you know though, if you haven't registered, you're in, in good company. There's roughly 15 million of you out there as well that are all felons at this point in time. So more to come on that. Now, another big news item this week, and it's kind of unrelated, but I wanna show you just how this uni party that we are Under works and how they are really, despite anything that they say, and I'm talking to Kevin McCarthy and the like are not our friends. And this is a perfect example of why you have to always watch out for the sheep and the wolf and sheep's clothing. So we had the debt ceiling bill and. In my opinion, we, we gave up Kevin McCarthy essentially made a Hakeem Jeffers the speaker of the House by having to go and get Democratic votes to pass it, that he did not have unanimous support on this bill because, It basically gave the government cart blanche and Biden to do whatever he wants, spend our money. However he likes there. There is no control. There's no spending cuts. You can look and look their numbers and read what they say, but there is no spending cuts. The debt ceiling's not gonna come back up for another two years and they can raise it as high as they want. They can leverage this country to the hill. The fact that we are aren't always but it's all about money. And Kevin McCarthy. Gave it away. He did not hold the line. He was scared. And when you're scared, you stu do Stu you do stupid things. And he didn't hold the line. I personally think they need a motion to vacate and utilize that, which is what he offered up to get the speaker roll. Well, I think it's time that he leaves cuz he showed that he doesn't earn it, he doesn't deserve it. And here's another. Reason why I'm Andrew Clyde, representative out of Georgia has HJ Res 44, which is a bill to outlaw, to basically reign in the A T F. And eliminate this pistol brace rule, make it pistol braces legal, and not subject to the N f A. He has that bill. He has 190 co-sponsors of this bill already, and he believes that even he's gonna be able to get Democrats on board for this bill when it comes to the floor. It was scheduled to come to the floor for a vote next week. Because knowing how critical the timeline of this is, it was scheduled to come to the floor this week. Well, he got a call from, and he just says leadership. I don't know if that's Kevin McCarthy himself, who that is, but they called him and said, if you don't vote for the debt ceiling bill, we're not bringing this bill to the floor. We're gonna shut down the pistol brace law ru rule, because we're gonna, that's, you're gonna be your punishment. Well, he voted against it and, It has now been removed from the calendar for next week because, This is not about protecting your second amendments. It's about leverage and money and power. And here we had somebody, J that was trying to do the right thing. He put a bill out there and he was also trying to do the right thing by, by making this country accountable for what it spends. And because he voted against the pistol break rule and voted against Le what? Quote unquote, leadership is being punished by having this bill that protects. The second Amendment stands up for what all of us Americans want and is having it pulled. So just know this uni party. Does not care about us. We have to get people in like Trump that cares about us and will do the hard things. McCarthy, I knew from the beginning he was not the man to do it. I'm disappointed in Jim Jordan too. He voted for the bill. Marjorie Taylor Green, she voted, several people voted for it, and I'm disappointed and I think we have to look at them better because they've been corrupted in my opinion. So, Those are things that have happened this week. Another interesting thing, I'm, and kind of on a funny note, light note hunter Biden, he is leaning on the second Amendment for his defense, on his indictment for Violating the federal law and lying on his 44 73 when he purchased his handgun and he was ed to drugs at the time. He is facing prison time and his defense is going to be brewing, they say, and that he's gonna come out Pro Second Amendment and that the, basically the 44 73 is unconstitutional. Does not stand up to the history and tradition of the Second Amendment, as said and Bruin, and that the fact that he had to answer those questions it violates the Second Amendment and that he did not do anything illegal. So interesting to see how our president's son, who Joe Biden said he's the smartest person he's ever known, is using the Second Amendment, which Joe Biden hates the Second Amendment as his protection to try and keep himself outta jail. So we'll see where all that lands. We'll see what his daddy says about it. All, all more to come. So a lot of things happen, but nothing's really decided except the unit party hates us. They hate us, and they are not fighting for our Second Amendment rights. We have to keep fighting for'em. And so remember that. It's up to us to fight for those second amendments and we've got to look and put people in there that aren't about power. They're about doing the right thing. So and in my opinion, that's Donald J. Trump. That is the only man that we can right now that has demonstrated his ability to stand up from fight for us. So have a great day. I'll talk to you later.
