The most disingenuous or uninformed thing House Democrats say about the ATF’s flawed pistol brace rule is that banning a small piece of plastic is going to save lives. It will not save a single life. It will, however, soon turn millions of law-abiding Americans into felons. pic.twitter.com/cF0hRKOt1v— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) April 20, 2023
Bump Stocks vs Pistol Braces
Even though pistol braces may look similar to bump stocks, they are designed for a different purpose. The bump stocks allow for faster rates of gunfire. Where the pistol braces were designed to help stabilize the pistol itself. Some shooters may have a disability and need to hold their AR15 pistol one-handed. Therefore, stabilizing braces are merely an accessory. The ATF is trying to say that the “plastic accessory” inclusion is to be classified as a pistol.
The entire point was to make millions of Americans felons. This is their goal.— Nigel (@vanity_divitiae) April 21, 2023
