pipedreams Posted July 17, 2021 Share Posted July 17, 2021 "House Judiciary Committee GOP members called on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to abandon its proposed restrictions on stabilizing braces, calling its proposed rule a “flagrant effort to restrict Americans’ fundamental Second Amendment rights.” “We have serious concerns about the attempt by [ATF] to regulate firearms with stabilizing braces. ATF’s regulatory notice is deeply flawed, beyond the scope of its authority, contrary to years of previous ATF opinions, and harmful to millions of law-abiding American firearm owners,” the Republicans said in a letter dated July 16 to ATF’s Acting Director Marvin Richardson. All 19 GOP committee members—including the committee’s ranking member, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)—signed the letter." https://www.theepochtimes.com/house-judiciary-committee-republicans-urge-atf-to-abandon-restrictions-on-stabilizing-braces_3904702.html "The proposed rule has been published for public notice and comment as required by law. The comment period will end on Sept. 8. On June 14, Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.) and 140 GOP House Representatives also called on the Department of Justice and ATF to withdraw the rule. Over a week later, 48 Senate Republicans made the same request. In December, ATF proposed similar guidance on stabilizing braces but abandoned it after receiving over 60,000 comments largely in opposition to the guidance."
