The NRA’s Bold Move Against Biden’s Pistol Crackdown

The NRA swiftly intervenes in a legal battle against the ATF’s pistol brace regulation under the Biden administration. Filing a legal brief in a Texas case, the organization aims to protect its members from the new policy. The regulation targets pistols equipped with stabilizing braces, which facilitate one-handed shooting.

Seeking a preliminary injunction against the ATF’s “Factoring Criteria for Firearms with Attached ‘Stabilizing Braces,'” implemented on June 1, the NRA opposes the arbitrary attack on law-abiding gun owners. The injunction would prevent potential harm or infringement on the rights of gun owners until a final decision is reached regarding the pistol brace regulation.

The NRA exposes the adverse impact of the Final Rule, which forces millions of Americans, including NRA members, to dispose of, modify, or register their firearms. Failure to comply may lead to felony prosecution, imprisonment, and substantial fines.

The pro-gun association previously supported a lawsuit in North Dakota against the ATF’s pistol brace rule back in February, and together with the National Foundation for Fun Rights and SB Tactical — they are collectively suing the agency.

Disabled veterans and others rely on stabilizing braces for enhanced safety when using pistols. The NRA highlights the irreparable harm caused to members by the Final Rule.

Preemptive injunctions have protected other gun promotion groups, including the Second Amendment Foundation, Gun Owners of America, and Texas state employees, from complying with the ATF’s regulation. The NRA aims to secure a permanent injunction against the rule.

President Joe Biden’s push to regulate pistol braces, citing concerns about the unlikely potential of owners converting pistols into short-barreled rifles, prompted the NRA to take legal action. The association expressed its continued determination to protect all members and citizen’s constitutional right against encroachment.

The pro-gun association remains committed to defending its members and constitutional freedoms, fighting against oppression and any anti-Second Amendment agendas. By filing the Complaint in Intervention, the NRA highlights the danger of the ATF’s new rule, and the urgent need to protect its supporters.
