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.
Yesterday, the ATF was expected to publish its decision on pistol braces. Instead, the ATF published an open letter to all FFLs on the updated determination of what is considered a “readily completed” frame or receiver. This new determination process seeks to define partially completed, disassembled, or nonfunctional frames as firearms.
