The Pistol stabilizing brace is one of the most unfortunately infamous recent innovations in the gun industry. It makes heavier handheld firearms stable for the user to shoot with one hand. Pistol braces were originally invented to allow better control of the weapon by wounded veterans and to take more accurate shots. They were approved by the ATF to make handling firearms easier for people in need, like these veterans or smaller-framed folks. 

On Friday, January 13, the ATF announced that it has submitted to the Federal Register the “Stabilizing Braces” Final Rule, which makes clear that when manufacturers, dealers, and individuals use stabilizing braces to convert pistols into rifles with a barrel of less than 16 inches, commonly referred to as a short-barreled rifles, they must comply with the laws that regulate those rifles, including the National Firearms Act (NFA) in 120 days. Will this now make millions of Americans felons?

“Keeping our communities safe from gun violence is among the Department’s highest priorities,” said Attorney General Merrick B. Garland. “Almost a century ago, Congress determined that short-barreled rifles must be subject to heightened requirements. Today’s rule makes clear that firearm manufacturers, dealers, and individuals cannot evade these important public safety protections simply by adding accessories to pistols that transform them into short-barreled rifles.”

According to the belief of some gun owners, including me, the new rule was established to punish the 40 million owners of such guns because they pose an electoral, political, and cultural threat to the ruling regime.

F5MFG breaks down the history of the pistol braces in a well-written article. It is worth the read. The article reminds us that ATF tried to classify the Braced Pistols as a Short-Barreled-Rifle in December 2020. Before the end of the month, the agency decided not to pursue this issue any further at that time.

We defeated the ATF in 2020 and can defeat them again, specifically if the Supreme Court rules on the laws as they should be. And be sure this fight over the braces will go to the Supreme Court just as the case of the New York Gun Shop owners is making its way to the high court.

The main thing we can do is never back down, never give in, and never allow one single gun right under the U.S. Constitution to be taken from us. Remember, the ATF has no LEGAL AUTHORITY to inspect firearms without a search warrant, which applies to non-NFA & NFA firearms. You have to grant them consent before they can do much of anything.
