Federal Judge Tosses ATF Pistol Brace Rule

In a huge win today in federal court, Judge Reed O’Connor just vacated the rule banning pistol braces created by Joe Biden’s gun-hating ATF.

The rule would have forced Americans to register these pistol braces or become a felon.

The reason this victory is so huge is because the Fifth Circuit has already ruled that the ATF rule is “likely illegal”, meaning this rule should be dead forever.

The ruling is more technical, apparently resting on the Administrative Procedure Act rather than the merits of the regulation itself. The ATF could promulgate the rule again properly within the APA, but unless Biden wins in November, there won't be enough time left for it to come into effect.
