The ATF is now going to “allow” you to register your pistol braces for “free”. Just give them all your info and a picture of the firearm with the pistol brace attached. They will then decide whether the firearm “would qualify for an anmesty registration.”
Knew this was coming after the illegal ATF bump stock and ghost gun bans. Millions of gun owners will now be declared criminals if they don’t register their legally purchased firearms and agree to submit themselves to any and all future warrantless searches by the ATF.
This is the definition of “Insidious”
- proceeding in a gradual, subtle way, but with harmful effects.
I thought this was pistol braces, aren’t bump stocks just straight up illegal and have been for years?
I’d really hate to send all my info including a picture of a firearm with a bump stock to the ATF.
I am updating the title for this thread because this was in reference to pistol braces not bump stocks. You can see Jared from Guns and Gadgets video about it here for more info. At this time it has a “target date” of December but hopefully, it will be struck down long before that.
Corrected that error.
I wouldn’t send them a picture of a butter knife, they would consider it a bayonet for an AR
Looks legit to me…
They made the same offer 2 years ago, 2020-27857.pdf (federalregister.gov)
See page 11:
The database issue (which it a big issue) aside, how will they know if it is really a photo of your AR pistol and brace?
The other BIG issue is it does not state that by providing a photo(s) that your request will be approved.
Smells like the details necessary for a future search warrant.
They would surely require a visible serial number either right off the bat, or with a very quick change when people suggest that that might be an issue.
Or, maybe the same way they keep us from all putting full auto sears into our current guns even though it’s physically possible? Get found out and have fun in prison
For the most part, gun owners don’t commit federal felonies and the like just because they found a way that they can lie and do so
I don’t know how realistic it would be to get in bed with the ATF and have them teach us how to be safe and defend ourselves when violence comes our way.
You are right, for the most part we don’t commit felonies. Until the government, with the stroke of a pen, tries to make felons out of millions of us. We are reaching a point where something is going to break.
You can only grant amnesty for something that’s illegal which this is not. The ATF is part of the Executive branch of the government and has no jurisdiction since it does not have legislative powers. These are legal and was already legal to begin with, just ignore and sue. Don’t post your stuff online until this is settled.
The ATF has already been caught going after people with triggers and other kits that were legally purchased but they redefined as illegal. The most likely way they got the purchasers addresses is by examining Credit Card records and/or shipping records. So unless all your purchases were cash and face to face you are just hoping they choose some of the millions of other legal purchasers to make an example out of before they get to you. What they are doing is unconstitutional and criminal but it will take years, lots of money and possible jail time to sort it all out. And a stacked Supreme Court may not come to the rescue a few years down the road.
