Paxton Challenges Corporate America’s Newest Tactic to Target American Citizens’ 2nd Amendment Rights
Attorney General Paxton joined a multistate letter led by Tennessee and Montana that is being sent to the CEOs of American Express, Mastercard, and Visa due to their problematic targeting of 2nd Amendment rights.
“Once more President Obama is pushing his personal and political agenda, attacking the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners. I stand ready to fight back against any overreach that will deny or infringe on their rights. If the president is truly concerned about keeping our communities and schools safe, he should share the same sense of urgency in closing security gaps ”“ some of his own making ”“ that have made a mockery of our borders and are inviting potential terrorists to infiltrate and attack our nation from within.”
Attorney General Ken Paxton and 22 other state attorneys general are urging the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) to permanently discard a proposed ban on M855 5.56 x 45mm ammunition. On March 10, ATF shelved the proposal after an outpouring of opposition, including from the law enforcement community.
