NAGR Sues Biden Administration over Pistol Brace Ban

Jun 13, 2023

Working in coordination with the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL), the National Association for Gun Rights and Texas Gun Rights is suing the Biden Administration over the infamous Pistol Brace Ban.

The lawsuit argues that a new rule from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) usurps Congressional authority by significantly expanding the definition of “rifle” under federal law, imposing potential criminal liability on millions of Americans for exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights said this about the rule:

The Biden Administration cannot ignore Congress and this rule is a clear violation of separation of powers and a violation of the Constitutional rights of all Americans. Now that the ATF’s rule is in effect, it’s critical that we act now.”

Under the ATF’s new rule, the ATF “re-defines” pistols with stabilizing arm braces as “short-barreled rifles.”

Otherwise law-abiding citizens who didn’t register their pistol braces now potentially face up to 10 years in jail and a hefty fine.

Chris McNutt, President of Texas Gun Rights added:

“The ATF are acting like foot soldiers for the anti-gun Biden administration. Their abuse of power is both unconscionable and unconstitutional. Texas Gun Rights looks forward to overturning their draconian rule.”
