Patrick Morrisey, the Attorney General of West Virginia issued threats to sue the White House on Thursday, following President Biden’s series of Executive Actions on gun control.
Morrisey states that defense of the 2nd Amendment is a top priority for his office, and should the president enact his proposals, he will follow them up in short order with court challenges. He stressed that while a few evil people abuse the privilege of gun ownership, it does not lay ground for stripping rights from the law-abiding majority of American gun owners.

President Biden issued a slew of executive actions on gun control Thursday, claiming that none of his measures “impinges on the Second Amendment,” because in his words “no amendment. . . is absolute.”
BIDEN: “Nothing I’m about to recommend in any way impinges on the second amendment… No amendment to the Constitution is absolute. You can’t yell ‘fire in a crowded movie theater’ and call it freedom of speech. From the beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own.” pic.twitter.com/4dChTPgmQm
