NFGR Celebrates Victory in Federal District Court Pistol Brace Case

Oct 4, 2023

Washington, D.C.- Today, the National Foundation for Gun Rights (legal branch of the National Association for Gun Rights) scored a major victory for gun rights when federal district court judge in the Northern District of Texas Judge Reed O’Connor, granted a preliminary injunction in NFGR’s lawsuit challenging the ATF’s pistol brace rule.

All members of the National Association for Gun Rights and Texas Gun Rights are protected from the ATF’s pistol brace rule.

“This is a major victory for the Second Amendment and a blow against the ATF’s unconstitutional legislating by bureaucratic rulemaking,” said Hannah Hill, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights. “We want to thank Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, who represented us in this case.”

The rule had reclassified pistols with stabilizing braces as short-barreled rifles, meaning that the ATF was seeking to regulate Americans by federal laws that were never intended to apply to them and their firearms.

The ATF’s rule significantly expanded the definition of a rifle and imposed potential criminal liability on millions of Americans without legislative authority.

“The ATF has been overstepping their authority for decades,” said Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights. “We have a legislature who creates our laws, we don’t need a bunch of unelected bureaucratic cowboys at the ATF hijacking Congress’s job.”

         The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization, with 4.5 million members nationwide.
