Gun Owners of Arkansas'
Petition to the ATF

Gun Owners of Arkansas is committed

to providing Arkansas State officials with a clear and precise message.

As a result of President Joe Biden’s Community Safe Act, Arkansas gun owners and those who support the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution firmly stand united in opposition to the rules now implemented by Executive Order that ultimately led to the shooting death of Bryan Malinowski. 

It is no longer safe for Arkansans to rely solely on the Second Amendment as it is written. Gun owners of Arkansas along with other citizens, by petition, request that the Arkansas State Legislature along with the Governor and other constitutional officers send a clear and concise message to the federal government that Arkansans will not fall victim to Federal Government Overreach as a result of the Communities Safe Act, its rules, and federal agencies acting on behalf of the federal government. 

Arkansans have a clearly understood Right to Bear Arms. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution firmly states: 

“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

It is the duty of the Arkansas Governor, Attorney General, Legislature and all constitutional officers to remind the Biden Administration that the state of Arkansas is sovereign. 

The United States Constitution Tenth Amendment guarantees the Arkansas government the power over all matters not specifically outlined in the Federal Constitution. 

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Arkansas is home to remote rural areas where citizens have a right to protect themselves and their property.

Arkansans also enjoy some of the best outdoors and hunting opportunities in our nation. Those traditions are threatened by federal overreach. 

Every Arkansan has a right to defend themselves and their property from actions by the federal government when it comes to the Second Amendment. 

The Second Amendment does not require Arkansans to purchase a license to sell a firearm to a family member, neighbor or friend.

The Second Amendment does not require a family member who inherits a family collection of firearms to obtain a license to liquidate those firearms. Arkansans simply are not required to become a “gun dealer” to go about their everyday lives honoring the traditions that started even before Arkansas was a territory or state. 

The Second Amendment does not require Arkansans to feel wary when passing down a gun to their children or grandchildren. This tradition is now threatened by Biden’s Community Safe Act. 

Arkansans have a voice, a vested interest in protecting their rights as free citizens of the state of Arkansas as well as free citizens of the United States of America. 

It is the duty of every member of the Governor, the Arkansas Legislature, and all constitutional officers to take swift and appropriate action in this matter. 

As a result of the case of Bryan Malinowski, Gun Owners of Arkansas recognizes the imminent and immediate threat to the rights of Arkansans. 

Now is the time to act! Please sign our petition to demand that our elected representation in Arkansas hold the ATF accountable for the raid and killing of Bryan Malinowski at his home on March 19th, 2024.
