Gun Law News for Members of the Virginia Citizens Defense League

May 2024


BY NOW YOU’VE HOPEFULLY HEARD THE NEWS that a Texas court has granted a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) in our lawsuit against the BATFE's new "engaged in the business" rule. This means that the enforcement of this overreaching rule is halted—for now—thanks to our combined efforts with the Gun Owners of America (GOA).


The TRO specifically protects VCDL members, GOA members, and our fellow plaintiffs, Tennessee Firearms Association (TFA) members, residents of Texas thanks to the work of their Attorney General Ken Paxton, and one Mr. Jeffery Tormey. This is a crucial win, as it stops the BATFE from enforcing the new rule on us as of last Monday.


This success is a testament to the power of our community and the dedication of our members. VCDL, GOA and TFA were the only gun rights organizations to take this bold step and file suit against the BATFE. Our united front has made a tangible difference, proving once again that when we stand together, we can achieve great things.


However, it's important to note that this TRO is only temporary and does not extend to all Virginia residents. If you know someone who is not yet a member of VCDL or GOA, encourage them to join us. Membership not only supports our cause but also provides critical protections in times like these. It’s just one more big example of why being a member of the VCDL if you are a gun owner in Virginia is so important. It’s never too late to join. You can do so by clicking here.


Here is a link to the full TRO.
