All of those stupid "Pistol Brace's" shouldn't have ever been approved to be legal. They are just like Bump Stock's and Binary Trigger's. It's just people trying to get around having to spend a lot of money on a "Real" machine gun or short barreled rifle, and doing it by legal means.Or ignore it since the ATF cant stick with one position for 15 min.
Actually, it is pretty complicated to change the rules. You have to do public hearings, then post intent, and then reply to comments, and then repost, and finally add it to the federal register.the problem is in the inconsistent application of an arbitrary determination of a bureaucratic decision without the force of a true law.
the problem is that political appointee of a former president can make a thing that was determined legal illegal at the stroke of a pen.
the problem is that any random dipstick with a word processor can write to a government agency asking a question about a rule that was never legislated and get a random answer in writing, which will not agree with the random answer they would have received if the letter had landed one desk over in any direction, and these random contradicting answers are treated as law.
I'm not sure what planet you live on but America is NOT a Christian Nation.Will you have the Starch to stand up for our Christian Nation or will you bend over and kiss the Communist ***? Not one of you say you will bend and abandon our Republic,but unless you have been there you better do some praying and soul searching and make a commitment to God, Country and family!
Point being you should not ever have had to pay the gov to allow you your RTKABA.All of those stupid "Pistol Brace's" shouldn't have ever been approved to be legal. They are just like Bump Stock's and Binary Trigger's. It's just people trying to get around having to spend a lot of money on a "Real" machine gun or short barreled rifle, and doing it by legal means.
While I don't agree with 99% of the laws / rules that the BATFE has or comes up with. The simple fact is that guy's still try to "Beat the System", and then cry foul when that product is called illegal.
I paid for the tax stamps when I bought 2 machine gun's back in the 80's, and I've paid them for the 7 suppressor's that I have. Yeah, It sucks, but it is what it is!
America was founded by Diests. If you don't believe me go check out the Jefferson Bible.America was founded by Christians. Our Constitution is written around Christian Principles.
Since April 2017, when BATFE reversed its ridiculous assertion that touching a pistol stabilizing brace to one’s shoulder magically redesigned it into a shoulder stock, all has appeared quiet on the pistol stabilizing brace front. At least publicly. Until this year, that is. 2020 has brought no shortage of unwelcome surprises, including a few from our favorite federal regulatory agency, the ATF. Here are more details of what’s been going on . . . .
In June, we learned of Congressman Matt Gaetz (R – FL) targeting the ATF for its shifting “standards” and “rules” regarding what constitutes a pistol brace, and how the agency has refused to set objective standards with the firearm industry. This sparked concerns that the ATF was going after braces — accessories they had previously approved — and seeking to restrict them. Made public for the first time, these were issues that had been worked on within the industry for years, including with direct cooperation between attorneys representing firearm industry manufacturers and the top lawyers and officials within the ATF itself and the DOJ.
Then, as we neared the election, the ATF dropped an October surprise, declaring some braced pistols were actually SBRs — NFA-regulated short barreled rifles — only to later back off that determination under pressure. That declaration was in direct disobedience to the Department of Justice’s edict (which happened, in a big part, thanks to Rep. Gaetz with help from brace manufacturer SB Tactical) that ATF could not pursue any new rulings or regulations on pistol braces without first setting clear standards for the accessories in cooperation with the firearm industry.
The DOJ had barred ATF’s Firearms Technology Industry Services Branch (FTISB) from doing this. They’re the department within ATF that has historically created all of the approvals, reversals, reversals of the reversals, double-secret rules (e.g. 13.5-inch length of pull limit rule RE braces), and approval determinations of pistol brace designs.
The ATF got around the DOJ’s edict by having a Special Agent from the agency’s Boston Field Division (“banned in Boston?”) of its criminal branch issue these cease & desist letters. Yes, that was in flagrant disregard of the clear intent of DOJ’s order. Still, the ATF found a way to circumvent it in an attempt to hurt the Trump administration in the run-up to the election and potentially mount a future attack on our gun rights.
All of which brings us to today. Well, yesterday. Perhaps you saw the Ammoland article detailing a 2018 letter — provided to Ammoland and others as part of a FOIA request — that was sent from ATF to SB Tactical accusing the company of selling braces that were never ATF-approved.
