Friday evening we brought good news to gun owners with braced firearms. There are between 20M and 40M of these firearms owned by members of the braced-gun community. No doubt some are unaware of the new rulemaking where the BATF has unilaterally decided to reclassify these formerly legal braced guns as “Short Barreled Rifles” and require them to be registered by May 31st.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals handed down temporary injunctive relief protecting the plaintiffs, including the Firearm Policy Coalition and its members from enforcement of the Biden rule-making.
And on Friday evening, I STRONGLY recommended spending the $30 to join FPC to protect you from enforcement against braced gun owners. Not only for those who didn’t or can’t register their braced guns, but FOR THOSE WHO HAVE submitted applications to register their braced guns. Why? Because maybe, for whatever reason, the BATF disapproves your application? How’s that for a reason.
For $30, you have a very cheap insurance policy that saves you spending $10,000 or more on a criminal defense attorney to fight an arrest by BATF for possession of one of those formerly legal guns. And if you want to challenge it on Constitutional groups, add at least one zero, probably two to finance that fight.
Join FPC. They’re a good organization doing God’s work.
You’re foolish not to have a backup plan in case BATF disallows your registration.
