Daines Blasts Biden Administration for Latest Attack on Montanans’ Second Amendment Rights

Biden Administration’s proposed rule would skirt Congress, implement unlawful background checks

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland opposing the Biden Administration’s proposed rule that any Montanan who sells a firearm for a profit to any person, including family, could be classified as a firearm ‘dealer’ and be forced to get a federal license, conduct a background check, and complete gun registration paperwork by the federal government. This proposed rule is an attempt to go around Congressional authority and rewrite a settled law in an attempt to implement backdoor universal background checks.

“President Biden’s new proposed rule would create a loophole allowing the federal government to go after law-abiding Montana gun owners,” said Daines. “Montanans’ Second Amendment rights are not up for negotiation—this is an attack on our way of life and I will keep fighting back against Biden’s gun-grabbing agenda.”

Senator Daines is joined in the letter by Sens. Roger Marshall (R-Kans.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.),Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), and Eric Schmitt (R-Mo.).
