Pistol Braces
« on: August 14, 2019, 09:11:46 AM »
Some reporting that the BATFE, at the direct intervention of President Trump, will make a new ruling on the legalities of "certain" pistol braces.

Pistol braces that people use as a shoulder stock (as in Detroit) as work-around to the short-barreled rifle restriction, which restriction should not exist anyway.

It was a stupid BATFE opinion both ways, and a lack of willingness to work together in Congress that preceded this decision. Both the original opinion, the reversal, and this potential reversal of the reversal illustrate the folly of building a business on the fringes of the law subject to bureaucratic whimsy.

SB Tactical's PR announcing the original BATFE opinion shift.

The new clarification of opinion letter states, "an NFA firearm has not necessarily been made when the device is not re-configured for use as a shoulder stock - even if the attached firearm happens to be fired from the shoulder. To the extent that the January 2015 Open Letter implied or has been construed to hold that incidental, sporadic, or situational "use" of an arm-brace (in its original approved configuration) equipped firearm from a firing position at or near the shoulder was sufficient to constitute "redesign," such interpretations are incorrect and not consistent with ATF's interpretation of the statute or the manner in which it has historically been enforced."

Don't like the law. Change the law.  :twocents:
