In a bold move, Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Tom Cotton (R-AR), backed by 11 fellow Republicans, launched the Repealing Illegal Freedom and Liberty Excises (RIFLE) Act.

Their goal? To axe the hefty tax on firearms and accessories under the National Firearms Act (NFA).

Sen. Cornyn is all in.

“This outdated tax must not continue to burden law-abiding Texans who want to exercise their Second Amendment rights,” said Sen. Cornyn in a press release obtained by GunsAmerica. 

“Our commonsense legislation would remove this frivolous financial mandate, and I’m glad to support it,” he added.  

Sen. Cotton echoed this sentiment, emphasizing, “Law-abiding Americans who exercise their Second Amendment rights should not be subject to unnecessary taxes and restrictions preventing them from doing so.”

He pointed out that since its 1934 inception, the National Firearms Act has desperately needed an overhaul.

A hefty crew of senators, including John Barrasso (R-WY) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), are rallying behind the bill.

Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-02) has also stepped up, introducing a sister bill in the House, which has 43 co-sponsors.

The issue at hand? A $200 tax stamp on certain firearms (SBRs, SBSs, full autos, AOWs) and accessories (suppressors) since 1934. ATF introduced the tax to “curtail, if not prohibit, transactions” of certain firearms.

Since 2018, the ownership of these items has spiked by over 250%, with an estimated 7 million NFA items in circulation as of 2021.

Supported by powerhouses like the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the RIFLE Act aims to lift this financial load off the shoulders of gun owners and prospective gun owners.

Would President Biden ever sign the RIFLE Act into law? Heck no! But hopefully, his days as president are coming to an end this November.
