West Virginia Attorney General Promises to Sue Biden Admin if He Enacts His Gun Control Policies

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey has vowed to sue the Biden administration if they “run roughshod over our citizens’ gun rights.”

Morrissey said in a statement that defending the Second Amendment is one of the most important priorities for his office.

“Defending the Second Amendment remains one of the most important priorities for the West Virginia Attorney General’s Office. I will not allow the far left to run roughshod over our citizens’ gun rights. If President Biden follows through on his proposals, we will be in court very quickly,” Morrisey said in a statement. “Gun violence and the senseless death attributed to it should pain all Americans, however, the evil acts of a select few should never be a catalyst for stripping the lawful masses of their constitutional rights, especially their right to self-defense and to bear arms.”

On Thursday, the Biden admin put forward executive actions including restrictions on homemade “ghost guns,” a push for red flag laws, recategorization of AR-15 pistols, and DOJ-led research into gun trafficking.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has also vowed to fight for Texans’ Second Amendment rights.
