In Brief:

Donald Trump Jr. announced that he is starting a new gun rights group committed to protecting Americans’ 2nd Amendment rights. The “Second Amendment Task Force” will be devoted to frustrating Democratic legislative initiatives, fighting against Biden administrative nominees, and aiding in voter registration for the 2022 midterm elections. Trump Jr. said the group was inspired by the fight against failed ATF Director nominee David Chipman.

The Background: 

Donald Trump Jr. is stepping into the political spotlight in a new way.

His new “Second Amendment Task Force” is a new voice in the fight against gun control across America. Trump Jr. will be the group chairman.

"We had to make sure that the American people knew what was going on, especially with Red State Democrats. If they're considering casting an anti-Second Amendment vote, we're going to make sure they feel the pain. This new group will help us put more structure and resources around those efforts to make sure we're as successful as we can be,” he said.

Trump Jr. was one of the many high-profile Republicans who spoke out against the Biden nominee for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, David Chipman. Chipman was a controversial figure who failed to be confirmed to his appointment by the Senate.

With the rise of millions of 1st-time gun owners, the group hopes to unite Americans around the 2nd Amendment and the inalienable right to self-defense.
