Owens Joins Effort to Curb the ATF’s Assault on Second Amendment Rights

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04), alongside over 140 colleagues, sent a letter to Mr. Marvin Richardson, the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), in response to ATF’s attempt to restrict the ability of law-abiding Americans to use silencers on firearms.

“The Second Amendment guarantees the right of Americans to keep and bear arms,” said Rep. Owens. “Recent attempts by the ATF to restrict the rights of law-abiding Americans from making their own silencers is a gross overreach of government bureaucracy and impacts the constitutional rights of Utahns in my district and Americans across the country.”
