ATF Pistol Brace Proposed Rule

Please check out the proposed rule that will essentially ban pistol braces. There are literally millions of pistol braces already in use with just 1 instance of criminal use. The proposed rule should be rejected.

ATF web page describing the proposed rule (containing a link to make a comment):
https://www.atf.gov/rules-and-regula...ilizing-braces


The ATF worksheet for how to determine if a brace equipped pistol is actually a rifle:

Pistol braces were 1st developed for and approved to help physically disabled people safely shoot pistols. As I'm getting older, I may need one of these some day myself. They allow the stabilization of the pistol and some also allow better sight options too. All of which improves the accuracy and safety of these firearms when equipped. The ATF should be encouraging safety and accuracy, not hindering the use of devices that help. We need negative comments that recommend the proposed rule be rejected.

Thank you...

Not seeing how this is a drive-by post. This is an important issue for the 2A community.

So does anyone have the paperwork for a trust.

If I have to pay for a tax stamp at least set it up so my kids don’t have to pay it again when something happens to me.
