Lone Man Taking Fight to the ATF by Himself, Goes Full Hero Mode for Your Second Amendment Rights

A Wyoming man is suing the U.S. government after it denied his application to make an M16.

The M16 is classified as a machine gun and is therefore illegal to own.

The ban is set forth in the Firearm Owners Protection Act, which stipulates that any machine gun that wasn’t registered by 1986 cannot be owned by a civilian. The M16 is still in use in the military.

However, Jake Stanley DeWilde of Watipi, Wyoming, has taken issue with FOPA and claims it is a violation of the Second Amendment.

On Dec. 8, DeWilde filed a form with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives asking to make and register an M16 machine gun, according to Cowboy State Daily. The ATF denied his application, citing the ban on machine guns.

DeWilde filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for Wyoming on Jan. 6.

The defendants named in the lawsuit are U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and Steven Dettelbach, director of the ATF. DeWilde acted with no legal counsel.

His complaint relies on two cases: District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen (2022). The court ruled in those cases that firearms cannot be considered “dangerous and unusual” if they are in “common use,” Cowboy State Daily reported.

DeWilde argues that, since the M16 is in common use by the military, it should also be available to civilians.

Wapiti Wyoming, not Watipi..
I know I have commented thusly before, but the anti-draft movement in the 1960’s and 1970’s showed us exactly how to collapse a governmental agency. We would be foolish not to note the methodology and utilize it. No compliance; obstruct, confront, and sabotage.

Outstanding. The man is a hero for standing up.
Where are all the lawyers to help this man?
All those lawyers in the world who think them selves smarter than the average person, all those lawyers afraid to defend the constitution. They ought to be ashamed.

Mass noncompliance is still another good way along with trying though the biased courts.

Better than even money the judge will summarily dismiss his lawsuit citing the government’s favorite excuse….”lack of standing”.

“Lack of Standing”
‘waiting’ only for the shooting to start.
Constant complaining and or whining,
Not telling someone they are wrong and why, rather too just go about your business.
Not cluing someone in on (you have been misled by false prophets.
seeds of Truth, not Bombs, calling names and ridicule.
Loving each other means we understand each is an individual and are on their own personnel path.
Dan, none of this was directed at you. “Lack of standing” lit a small flame.

add “police departments, and government agencies” to the “in common use” list.
also, equal protection under the law would imply that any weapon the police carry for self protection (Garner vs Tennesse 1985 “Thus, if the suspect threatens the officer with a weapon or there is probable cause to believe that he has committed a crime involving the infliction or threatened infliction of serious physical harm, deadly force may be used if necessary”)  then all citizens legally permitted to carry weapons are entitled to carry automatic weapons for self defense.

Go ahead and build your 16, Jake. Ever since the feds became corrupt and lawless, all bets are off.
