We knew this domino was going to fall. They made them legal with a piece of paper and just as easily took them away.
I watched the video but don’t follow the individual. I hope the ATF sends every American a letter informing them of the change. If it’s possible to make millions of people felons with the swipe of a pen(compliance period or not) then what’s the point.
This is going to get ugly. Millions of gun owners have these braces. The incoming administration has exactly zero cares about those millions.
So the question is should we register them as he says the will wave the $200 tax for now. It would save the expense of paying tax stamp or money converting it to a rifle and you would save your self a problem in the long run but then again is this the start of a registry list next is you can keep your mags just register them and by the end they know where to come
It is absolutely the beginning of a gun registry. How many people only own an AR/AK pistol or other variant.
When was the last time the government did something “nice” for the people? I don’t want a favor from the government i want them to stay in their lane!!
Until you want to modify, sell it, or die.
Yea see I am very un knowledgeable about NFA items as I think many might be since i never considered owning a nfa item i never took the time to really look further then the $200 tax so is that a stipulation to where you can’t modify or sell it
Na I’m just playing
It sounds like you’re going to willing comply. Pathetic. I can already hear the reply, “well we have to obey the law”
First you register your firearm, then stick out your arm and receive numbered tattoo, then step on train, strip down , get in oven. Yeah! I DON’T THINK SO!
Registration is for dead men and women!
Not sure how you came to that conclusion from my comment.
Feel free to hear whatever reply you want but it’s foolish to post comments saying or suggesting not complying with a law. I would suggest however you throttle back on your assumptions.
Not sure but i kinda got the opposite from your statement that if you in fact had a pistol brace you wouldn’t comply and the government is a bunch of over reaching slime… but im sure none of us have any such devices so we are good?
Free tattoo free train ride and free heat and @sheepdog556 said the government never did anything nice😂
I’m curious – what can/can’t I do with an SBR that I can/can’t do with my “pistol?” I’m really asking, not challenging – besides the whole registration issue, which I aknowledge is huge, what are the actual implications?
Also, anyone have any thoughts on why ATF would do this now? These are still Trump appointees, no?
Traveling with an SBR requires additional steps and paperwork. Whereas a pistol is no different than any other pistol.

Too many people keep asking for clarification on items. Read the rules for what they are and follow them, but if people keep asking for clarification they are gonna side with the most restrictive options.
They met with the incoming Biden administration, so you can fill in the blanks.
I’m curious why the government even cares about barrel size on a rifle. It’s not like a shotgun where it might affect the spread. If you go with a shorter rifle you gain a benefit (e.g. maneuverability) and you lose a benefit (e.g long range accuracy), so what’s the big deal? I’m new to the game still so maybe there was an issue years ago that I’m missing. I’m still stuck on why they care about barrel length. It seems kind of Freudian to me. LOL.
But seriously, how does the BATF even communicate this change to the people? They don’t know who has them. Is it possible they’ll grandfather existing firearms with a brace?
It’s “Stalinist, Marxist, Leninist, Maoist, socialist, communist, …
When I wanted a shorty AR I paid my $200, the ATF folks were super helpful in making it happen. I built my 7.5" AR SBR and it is a sweet firearms that I REALLY enjoy. The law is the law and it has been consistent for a LOOOOOOOONNNNNNG time. I’ve never had an issue with my registered SBR including traveling with it.
Just like bump stocks I never really bought into the concept of “braces”, specially when some of the companies out there started putting out basically adjustable stocks that were pretty much non-functional braces. Pushing the limits usually brings scrutiny and here we are once again standing on shaky ground on a subject that was clear before.
In any case, my SBR is good to go AND legal so I can sleep well. And no, my tattoos have nothing to do with my SBR
