The bill, which rolled out without any press release or fanfare, is finally available.

Senator Lankford Introduces Pistol Brace Protection Act

From Bearing Arms:

Senator James Lankford (R-OK) is standing up for Oklahomans’ Second Amendment right to own and use pistol braces without burdensome regulation, registration, and taxation. Last week, Lankford introduced the Pistol Brace Protection Act. Lankford’s bill would gut an upcoming final rule by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) by exempting pistol braces from regulation under the National Firearms Act (NFA). The bill eliminates subjective standards that exist in federal law that have allowed ATF to reclassify firearms under the NFA, and guarantees that law-abiding gun owners will not have to register, destroy, or surrender their pistol brace.

Bill Would Eliminate “Any Other Weapon” From NFA

From Guns.com:

The bill, the “No Backdoor Gun Control Act,” was introduced on Wednesday by U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, a Texas Republican, and co-sponsored by 23 other members of the GOP. The lawmakers say the reform is needed to ensure federal gun regulators couldn’t use the AOW section to violate Second Amendment rights – and would be especially important if other bills delete short-barreled rifles and short-barreled shotguns from the NFA.

The Incremental Plan To Destroy The NFA

From Ammoland:

The first step is well underway. It is to educate the gun culture and the general public about the history and failure of the National Firearms Act. When people learn the history and the effects of the act, support for it evaporates.

When people understand the NFA is the result of a political compromise that did nothing to stop crime; but results in thousands of Americans being punished for peaceful acts, support for the NFA drops to politically irrelevant numbers. Support for the NFA is fairly wide, but very shallow, propped up by the dominant Media and their creation and proliferation of false narratives.

ATF Going After Metal Tubes

From Ammoland:

A solvent trap is designed to catch solvent from a firearm when the gun is being cleaned. The solvent trap attaches to the front of the gun by using a threaded barrel. The solvent collects at the bottom of the tube of the trap. Solvent traps have been popular amongst firearms enthusiasts that with possession of proper Licenses can convert the traps into fully functioning suppressors by drilling out internal plugs and the closed tubing end.

“Solvent Traps” or “Fuel Filter Kits” are not regulated by the Gun Control Act (GCA) or the National Firearms Act (NFA), because and let us be honest here, we are talking about metal tubing. But that might be changing with the new rules expected this month. Certain senior members of the ATF leadership see solvent traps as a loophole to get around NFA restrictions on hearing protection devices, aka firearms silencers.

New Texas Laws Challenge Feds

From Ammoland:

Texas recently passed HB 957 into law. It will become effective on 1 September, 2021. The law repeals the Texas state ban on the possession of silencers/suppressors/gun mufflers, puts into effect a “no commandeering clause” for federal enforcement of the National Firearms Act (NFA) for silencers, and sets up a federal test case of the NFA in federal court.

Congressmen Begin Taking Aim At NFA

From Bearing Arms:

in response to the Biden Administration’s proposed rule regarding pistol stabilizing braces, Congressman Jeff Duncan introduced the No Frivolous Applications for Short-Barreled Shotguns (NFA SBS) Act.

This legislation will remove Short-Barreled Shotguns (SBSs) from the National Firearms Act (NFA) to allow SBSs to be treated just as any other shotgun, thus preventing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) from forcing otherwise law-abiding gun owners to destroy, register, or surrender their legally acquired pistol-braced firearms.

48 Senators Send Letter To Biden About Pistol Braces

From The Federalist:

In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, all of the Republicans in the Senate, except for Rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, demand that the Biden administration “correct the mistake” and walk back the proposal which the legislators allege was justified on claims”without evidence” that people simply wanted to avoid paying for NFA items.

Pistol Braces And The Heller Case

From The Federalist:

However, as explained hereHeller erred in at least two respects. First, it misinterpreted the Supreme Court’s decision in U.S. v. Miller (1939). Miller indicated that the right to keep and bear arms includes all arms that “have some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well-regulated militia,” such as those that are “part of the ordinary military equipment” and any others the use of which “could contribute to the common defense.”

Miller also noted that militiamen were historically “expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time,” so Heller ignored the discussion of military and militia arms and instead concluded that Miller limited the right to arms to those “in common use.”

Time To Remove SBRs From The NFA

From The Truth About Guns:

As the Biden administration gears up to pass fresh guidance on pistol stabilizing braces, I humbly suggest that this is precisely the time to get working on legislation to remove SBRs — short barreled rifles — from the purview of the 1934 National Firearms Act.

Arguments and assertions from the DOJ / ATF / Biden administration related to pistol braces only strengthen the case that SBRs shouldn’t be subject to special scrutiny as compared to rifles with 16-inch or longer barrels.
