FPC VICTORY: Federal Judge Blocks Delaware Ban on Self-Built Firearm Possession, Home Manufacturing

The Court today held that "the right to keep and bear arms implies a corresponding right to manufacture arms. Indeed, the right to keep and bear arms would be meaningless if no individual or entity could manufacture a firearm."

"We are pleased that the court recognized this essential element of the right to keep and bear arms and will continue to fiercely advocate for its protection," said FPC Law’s Director of Constitutional Studies, Joseph Greenlee.

"Yet another Court has recognized the expansive natural and individual right that is protected by the Second Amendment–in this case, the individual right to manufacture one’s own self-defense tools," said Cody J. Wisniewski, FPC’s Senior Attorney for Constitutional Litigation.

"Limiting the means by which peaceable people acquire arms is about one thing: the unconstitutional and immoral monopolization of power," said FPC Director of Legal Operations Bill Sack.

This decision marks the first-ever federal Second Amendment decision upholding the fundamental right to self-manufacture arms. FPC will continue to aggressively litigate to protect and restore the right to self-manufacture arms in this and cases throughout the United States.
