The corrupt, illegitimate, Biden regime just created a whole bunch of felons! The long-awaited illegal, unconstitutional, unworkable arm brace rule change has dropped, and here’s what’s in it.
The BATFE budget was increased by 13% when the Socialists and RINOs passed the $1.7 Trillion-dollar Omnibus bill. The budget increase was needed to help enforce their new pistol arm brace provision, among other things. If you haven’t heard, the Biden administration has decided your pistol brace will now be a registered NFA item, and there will be no grandfather clause.
The government is magnanimous with its tyranny, and owners of these items will be “allowed” to keep them. Still, they will now be required to submit an ATF Form 1 registering the brace, which includes a photo of your pistol with the brace attached, your firearm serial number, your social security number, and your fingerprints. As of now, owners will not be required to pay the $200 tax stamp, but I’m sure that will change.
The drive-by media is lying about the new regulations (shocking, I know), hailing the rule as the answer to gun violence.
Claims are being made that stabilizing braces turn a pistol into a short-barreled machinegun or sawed-off shotgun! As usual, the media will never let the facts get in the way of their story.
“This rule enhances public safety and prevents people from circumventing the laws Congress passed almost a century ago. In the days of Al Capone, Congress said back then that short-barreled rifles and sawed-off shotguns should be subjected to greater legal requirements than most other guns,” said Steven Dettelbach, the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).
The new rule gives owners, manufacturers, and distributors 120 days to report their stabilizing braces to the ATF tax-free. They may also remove the stabilizing brace or turn in any pistol modified by a stabilizing brace to the ATF.
The “rule change” goes into effect once published in the Federal Register, likely next week, BATFE officials said.
Gun rights groups are ready to file lawsuits on the rule change. A recent 13-3 ruling by the New Orleans Based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals court stated that, despite “tremendous” pressure to ban bump stocks, Congress should make the law, not the BATFE.
They’re Coming for Your Guns, Friends!
That’s all for now, folks! Please keep sending in your questions, tips, and article ideas. And as always – “Let’s Be Careful Out There.”
