UPDATED: The comment period for the NPRM on Frames and Receivers is ended. For a summary of "what's next" with that rule, reference the video above.
The NPRM ATF2021R-08 regarding Stabilizing Brace is STILL OPEN. Let's GO. Sample comments below, links to comment are above.
ATF 2021R-08 Brace Comment Topics:
- ALL of the pistol stabilizing braces currently on the market are FAR less effective than a stock. If whomever penned the first pages of this rule had ever spent significant time using a weapon equipped with a stabilizing brace and one with a stock, they'd know that the super thin fin, or soft rubbery flaps, that extend downward offer VERY little additional support when shouldered. Both the fins and flaps on the various designs on the market ARE, however, very effective at helping one-armed shooters use these weapons effectively.
- the two-page scoring worksheet that Americans are supposed to use to decide if they are felons or not is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, intended to help scare responsible Americans into registering firearms and paying MORE TAXES to the government. You know who else has worksheets and will send you to jail if you can't figure out the right answers? The IRS.
- an individual accessory is either legal or illegal, period. The proposed method of determining whether a brace-equipped weapon is or isn't an illegal SBR is pretty much the way the 1994 Assault Weapons ban worked, defining an illegal weapon by how many of a list of certain features it had. The 1994 AWB was legislation, passed by ELECTED representatives of the people. A government agency cannot pass legislation, therefore it is illegal for the DOJ/ATF to set forth a set of features/accessories/characteristics (the criteria "worksheet") that a weapon can't have or it is a FELONY unless it was registered and fees paid BEFORE the government agency finds out you have it.
