ATF Bump Stock Ruling is invalid

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the ATF bump stock rule in Hardin v. ATF. The court found that the ATF went beyond its legal authority when it banned bump stocks, and that the rule violated the rule of lenity. The rule of lenity requires that when a criminal statute is unclear, the law must be interpreted in favor of the defense. The court remanded the case back down to the District Court. This ruling is significant because it contradicts previous rulings by the Tenth Circuit and DC Circuit Court, which ruled in favor of the ATF’s bump stock rule. The decision also highlights the importance of interpreting criminal statutes in favor of the defense when they are unclear.
