    ATF Shuts Down Gunmaker After Suit By Anti-Gun Group

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) revoked a Nevada firearm manufacturer’s license following litigation from an anti-gun organization and two states challenging the agency’s decision to reinstate the gunmaker’s license, multiple outlets reported.

    “ATF hereby reports that, on March 24, 2022, it sent JA Industries a notice of revocation of its firearms license,” a March 30 letter from the ATF said. The letter came after a lawsuit brought by the city of Kansas City, Missouri, and the state of Illinois as well as Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun-control group partly founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other mayors, challenged the ATF’s decision to grant a license to JA Industries, USA Today reported.

    The company, originally known as Jimenez Arms, made affordable handguns until filing for bankruptcy in 2020 on the heels of a lawsuit in which Kansas City claimed it was a public nuisance due to its alleged contribution to firearms trafficking, Newsweek reported. It later reincorporated as JA Industries and was reissued its license by the ATF.

    Everytown then followed up with a 2021 lawsuit against the ATF over its decision to grant the license to JA Industries, claiming that due to its alleged violations of the Gun Control Act, the gunmaker was ineligible to be licensed.

    “I think this is an undisputed important step toward shutting down a manufacturer that flouted federal law and facilitated gun trafficking,” John Feinblatt, president of Everytown, told USA Today. “It shouldn’t have taken three lawsuits to get ATF to do its job. I can only hope this marks a beginning of a new era at ATF where it starts to serve as a watchdog of the American people rather than a lapdog to the gun industry.”

    “Lives will be saved as a result of this decision, and it should serve as a wake-up call for those in the industry who put profit over public safety,” Alla Lefkowitz, Senior Director of Affirmative Litigation at Everytown Law, said in a release by the gun-control group.

    Gun writer Lee Williams tweeted, “ATF, Everytown hound Jimenez Arms out of business.”

    Neither the ATF nor JA Industries responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    So JA Industries sold a cheap firearm. How dastardly! That means folks in areas of the country where gainful employment at more than burger slinging wages is a vague dream will have to save up to buy a more expensive firearm to protect themselves against folk like Mr. Aguirre who was recently arrested in Oxnard with a firearm that had been altered so that if fired fully automatic and had two 29 round magazines in his possession.

    Golly Bill, I thought it was illegal to possess fully automatic firearms in Ca. I thought it was illegal to posses magazines that held more than ten rounds. We see how well the CA proscription against fully automatic weapons works when career felons are involved. We also see how well the magazine limitation to 10 rounds works when felons are involved.

    From Mr. Webster’s big book: “felon| ˈfelən | 
    noun
    a person who has been convicted of a felony. 
    adjective [attributive] archaic 
    cruel; wicked: the felon undermining hand of dark corruption
    ORIGIN 
    Middle English: from Old French, literally ‘wicked, a wicked person’ (oblique case of fel ‘evil’), from medieval Latin fellofellon-, of unknown origin.”

    So here is a FELON with eight felony convictions still on the streets of Oxnard. So much for the rule of law in Ventura County. Why is he not buried deep in the dark recesses of Folsom?

    Yet JA Industries, making a firearm for self protection for folks who cannot afford the likes of a Sig Sauer and certainly wouldn’t dream of having a magazine that held more than ten rounds, gets its license pulled thus putting at least the owners of the business in the ranks of the unemployed and also however many employees they had on the streets too.

    Hurray! Thanks Mikey Bloomberg and your stooges for striking a blow for the bad guys. Of course, Mikey has a 24/7/365 fully armed bodyguard detachment hanging around him so he doesn’t have to worry about Aguirre. The folks in south Oxnard who can’t afford a group of bodyguards armed with MP5s around the clock will be unable to defend themselves against 9 times loser Aguirre when he is let back out on the streets. I wonder how long it will take him to replace his confiscated armory? Is it possible that the OPD will return his battery to him upon release? That wouldn’t surprise me to terribly.
