Dear Friend, 

Our Second Amendment rights are once again under attack.

As you have probably heard, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives issued a regulation that would require every gunowner who owns a pistol with a stabilizing brace to register the firearm as a “rifle” before May 1. Those who don’t comply could be penalized with a ten-year jail sentence and a $10,000 fine.

It’s absurd to claim that stabilizing braces are a “backdoor” means to transform a pistol into a rifle. As any gunowner knows, these devices simply allow pistol owners steady their grip when aiming a firearm. While for many gunowners a stabilizing brace is a useful tool, for others who are unable to fire a pistol with two hands due to a disability – including many of our wounded warriors – this device is a necessity.

It’s bad enough that Biden administration bureaucrats don’t understand the basic purpose of a common firearm accessory; it’s even worse that they are seeking to implement a policy that will unjustly discriminate against those who have sacrificed so much for this country.

I look forward to joining my House colleagues in voting to abolish the ATF’s unconstitutional regulation in the coming weeks and will oppose all other efforts to restrict the rights of gunowners. Stay tuned for further updates in the months ahead.
