National Association for Gun Rights Sues Biden Administration over Stabilizing Brace Rule

Jun 8, 2023

Fort Worth, TX. – Today, the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) filed a new federal lawsuit against the Biden Administration on behalf of gun owners across America in coordination with National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) and Texas Gun Rights (TXGR). 

The lawsuit argues that the new rule usurps Congressional authority by significantly expanding the definition of “rifle” under federal law, imposing potential criminal liability on millions of Americans exercising their Second Amendment rights.

“Biden’s ATF is a rogue entity, making rules that plainly violate the Constitution. Their rule on pistol braces has turned millions of gun owners into felons, overnight,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “We’re taking legal action to rein the ATF in and restore the rights of our members. We are pleased to partner with WILL to do just that.”

WILL Deputy Counsel, Lucas Vebber stated, “The Biden Administration cannot ignore Congress and this rule is a clear violation of separation of powers and a violation of the Constitutional rights of all Americans. Now that the ATF’s rule is in effect, it’s critical that we act.”

“The ATF are acting like foot soldiers for the anti-gun Biden administration. Their abuse of power is both unconscionable and unconstitutional. Texas Gun Rights looks forward to overturning their draconian rule,” said Chris McNutt, President of Texas Gun Rights.

The Congressional Research Service estimates 10 to 40 million stabilizing braces are currently in circulation. The ATF says only 250,000 have been registered as of the May 31st deadline.

The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization.
