Today’s proposed rulemaking on pistol-braced firearms represents a gross abuse of executive authority.

Millions of otherwise law-abiding gun owners now will be forced to destroy, register, or surrender their lawfully-acquired pistol-braced firearms.


You can read the ATF’s proposal here;

Be sure to contact your elected officials and voice your opposition to this as well as call and support the GOA!

I'm obviously not a lawyer & I'm not sure @3x wants to wade through that whole ruling, but it reads to me like they want to make it basically pointless to have an AR pistol unless you go without any kind of brace.

Basically the ATF wants to change how a rifle is defined. They're required to submit the proposal before attempting to make it a rule.
Ostensibly this is a proposed ban on pistol braces and greatly expands the scope of stuff that requires an NFA tax stamp.

So, let's think through this right quick. I haven't read the proposal, but are they saying that you can't shoulder them? Or that you can't own a brace that is essentially a forearm clamp?

And what do we do with all those lowers transferred on 4875's that were all "receivers" so they weren't called "rifles" on the form?

It’s a points system ... you have OAL greater than 26 .. strike If you have an angled for grip .. strike 2 If you have a lpvo strike 3 your out.
