ATF moving to ban pistol braces (again)?

https://gaetz.house.gov/media/hottak...uyPuqlrE-Vdbh4

Quote:
Congressman Matt Gaetz announced today on his podcast the ATF is crafting secret rules restricting the possession of certain pistol braces by American citizens, and that he has sent them a letter demanding they stop. "We understand that ATF is currently considering restricting one arm brace model owned by over 700,000 Americans," Congressman Gaetz writes along with six other members of Congress. "We strongly urge ATF to cease taking any actions and reconsider or rescind any secret determinations which call into question the legality of firearms owned by millions of law-abiding Americans."
I haven't seen any other mentions of this, but probably worth keeping an eye on.

Someone needs to put them (the ATF) on a tight leash, they are dictating laws outside of elected positions by offering opinions about what is legal and not.

Why won't he mention what brand and model of brace? That's more helpful to people than being vague.

Or better yet get rid of the ATF altogether

a) whoever informed him didn't give him that info

b) he doesn't want to ruin a company by causing purchases of their product to come to a screeching halt due to something that is not their fault


ETA : just throwing out possibilities, I have no inside info

What power does a congressman’s letter have over the ATF, I find difficulties trusting either.

Today the ATF looses $200 per brace sold in the USA.

$200*700000 = $140,000,000 in lost revenue.

You bet your ass they are gone.

ATF has the capabilities to make the entire NFA purchase process take 250ms + the time it takes for the credit card gateway to respond. They want some of that brace revenue? They need to step to late 90s level tech.
