Alex Bosco is the founder of SB Tactical and the OG of firearms stabilizing braces. After nine years of approving pistol stabilizing braces and devices, the BATFE has proposed a 71 pages redefining of the very same products of which they already approved.

Whether are not you are a fan of stabilizing braces or not, this subject is critically important to every American citizen. Note we did not say “gun owner” we said citizen. You must listen louder to this special episode.

Can the United States of America function as a Representative Republic if we allow an unelected regulatory agency to arbitrarily create rules, change the rules, and then threaten to punish the citizens who found themselves breaking the rules that were altered at the whim of bureaucrats, not elected representatives?

Factoring Criteria for Firearms with Attached “Stabilizing Braces”

On June 7, 2021, the Attorney General signed ATF proposed rule 2021R-08, “Factoring Criteria for Firearms with Attached ‘Stabilizing Braces,’” amending ATF’s regulations to clarify when a rifle is “intended to be fired from the shoulder.”

The proposed rule outlines the factors ATF would consider when evaluating firearms equipped with a purported “stabilizing brace” to determine whether these weapons would be considered a “rifle” or “short-barreled rifle” under the Gun Control Act of 1968, or a “rifle” or “firearm” subject to regulation under the National Firearms Act.
