The lawsuit argues that a new ATF rule, which became effective on June 1, 2023, usurps Congressional authority by significantly expanding the definition of “rifle” under federal law, imposing potential criminal liability on millions of Americans exercising their Second Amendment rights. This lawsuit comes on the heels of WILL’s victory last week, when a federal judge granted WILL’s motion for preliminary injunction against the same rule on behalf of military veterans in Texas and Wisconsin.

The lawsuit alleges that the new agency violates the Equal Protection Doctrine, which guarantees that all individuals must be treated equally, without regard to race.

WILL was contacted by an applicant who had been struggling for over four months to obtain a Professional Counselor Training License (“LPC-IT license”) from DSPS’s Professional Counselor Section, a subsection of the MPSW Board. DSPS told applicant, Nicole Burden, that it would deny her application for an LPC-IT license on the basis that her Master’s degree in Professional Counseling did not meet the education requirement. This was shocking because the applicable statute expressly states that a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling does meet the licensing requirement.
The lawsuit alleges that ATF’s new rule violates the Second Amendment and the Separation of Powers, which prohibits federal agencies from making new laws without clear Congressional authorization.
