Yesterday, FRAC, SB Tactical, B&T USA, Rick Cicero, and 25 states are suing the ATF, AG Garland, and Steven Dettelbach, the Director of the ATF. The lawsuit was filed less than two weeks after the pistol brace rule was submitted to the Federal Registry. This new ruling considers ARs with pistol braces short barrel rifles, thus making them an NFA item regulated by the ATF. Tens of millions of Americans have 120 days to comply with the new ruling or face prosecution for violating the NFA. If prosecuted, a defendant could face up to 10 years in Federal Prison and up to a $250,000 fine.

Below is the press release from FRAC about the lawsuit against the Federal Government.

Industry Members, Allies, and Supporters,

I am proud to announce that FRAC has filed suit in conjunction with SB Tactical, B&T USA, Rick Cicero, and a sizeable state coalition. As we’ve seen with similar cases like Cargill v. Garland, wherein FRAC, SB Tactical, and B&T USA all appeared as amici curiae, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals held that such regulatory overreaches are not within the ATF’s authority. We feel that there is a positive trend toward regulatory accountability in the Courts, and we are confident that the Courts will continue to hold the ATF accountable for their pattern of regulatory overreach and ever-shifting positions. Please visit to stay updated on all of our cases and legal filings as they progress through the Courts, and please consider donating through our website to help us in our mission.

In liberty,

Travis R. White
