The gun industry on Monday appealed a U.S. judge’s decision to uphold new Obama administration regulations requiring gun dealers in four states bordering Mexico to report the sales of multiple semi-automatic rifles.

Judge Rosemary Collyer of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled on Friday the reporting requirements ordered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) last year were sufficiently narrowly tailored.

Because the reporting demand “was limited to only certain sales of certain guns in certain states, ATF did not exceed its authority,” she wrote in a 21-page ruling.
