We’re standing at a critical juncture in the history of firearms in the United States. I’m writing this to draw your attention to a significant issue that’s impacting millions of pistol brace owners across the nation.
In less than two weeks from the time of this writing, a new ruling regarding pistol braces is set to go into effect. This rule, often referred to as the ‘Pistol Brace Rule’, is projected to have a profound effect on up to 40 million pistol brace firearms, essentially turning them into felons.
I wanted to share Jared’s video, which delves deeper into this issue, discussing the current state of affairs, potential outcomes, and the choices available to firearm owners. I strongly recommend you take the time to watch his video. It not only provides a comprehensive understanding of the situation but also communicates the urgency of taking action.
I want to briefly summarize some of the compliance options he outlines for pistol brace owners. Keep in mind I’m not endorsing any of these options, and each individual should consider their own circumstances and consult with a legal professional if necessary.
- Alter the Firearm: Attach a 16-inch or longer rifled barrel to your firearm, effectively converting it into a rifle. This action would permit the addition of a stock without regulatory issues.
- Remove the Brace: Permanently detach and dispose of or modify the stabilizing brace so it can’t be reattached.
- Turn in the Firearm: Hand over the firearm to your local ATF office.
- Destroy the Firearm: An extreme option, but one that guarantees compliance.
- Register the Firearm: Complete the registration process during the 120-day period set forth, which includes applying for a tax stamp. This option requires an understanding of the implications and responsibilities of owning a registered item under the National Firearms Act.
Remember, a significant number of firearm owners are still unaware of these impending changes. Let’s do our part to spread the word. Share this information with your fellow firearm enthusiasts, at the range, in your local gun shops, and on social media. Together, we can ensure that our community is informed and prepared for the changes ahead.
Stay vigilant and safe. And as always, remember to carry a gun to keep you, your friends, your family, and your community secure.
