Federal Judge Limits Second Amendment Rights by Halting Sales of Aftermarket Triggers

On Tuesday, a federal judge enacted an injunction to halt the sale of aftermarket "forced-reset" triggers for AR-15 style rifles by Rare Breed Triggers LLC. U.S. District Judge Nina Morrison in Brooklyn opined that these FRT-15 triggers are likely illegal machine gun modification devices under federal law. 

She criticized the company for misleading customers, claiming they marketed the triggers as "completely legal" without disclosing important information suggesting otherwise. The ruling was a lengthy 129-page document detailing her position on the matter.

The legal teams for Rare Breed Triggers and the U.S. Attorney's office in Brooklyn have not yet issued any statements regarding the decision. 

This judgment follows less than a week after another federal judge, Reed O'Connor in Fort Worth, Texas, issued a ruling that temporarily stopped the enforcement of this trigger ban against three individuals, labeling the prohibition as "probably unlawful."
