Matt Gaetz Calls Upon ATF To Shelve Planned Restriction of Pistol Braces on Firearms

The ATF is trying a stealth ban.



The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is reportedly drafting new arbitrary rules that would criminalize firearms owned by hundreds of thousands if not millions of Americans, and Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz is calling for the gun regulation agency to back off of its plans to rule stabilizing braces on pistol-style firearms to be illegal.

Gaetz released a press release calling for the ATF to back off of what some are calling a stealth gun control ruling imposed by fiat. The ATF is said to be considering declaring stabilizing arm braces to be illegal devices. Arm braces are devices commonly used on what are known as AR-15-style pistols, weapons that use the platform of the famous rifle while lacking a traditional rifle stock. AR-15 pistols can legally be shorter than what’s regulated as a “short-barreled rifle” under existing gun laws, as they don’t qualify as rifles, containing the arm brace instead.

Gaetz slammed the rumored ATF plan to declare new restrictions on arm braces, which are designed for users to fire their AR pistols with the weapon braced against their elbow.

The ATF is claiming weapons with arm braces are designed to be fired from the shoulder in a manner akin to a rifle, and that the arm brace configuration is merely an attempt to skirt rules on short-barreled rifles. Gaetz questioned the agency’s logic in a Wednesday press release.

But now, what we find, is that the ATF is making it very difficult for people to have arm braces. They’re changing standards and changing rules,” says the Florida conservative. “And I am particularly frustrated when our government, at the administrative and executive level, goes beyond their grant of authority in our Constitution and in our Federal Statutes. Nothing gives anyone at ATF the ability to constrain the use of arm braces.”

Millions of American gun owners are left in a lurch as the ATF considers arbitrarily banning a form of commonly owned civilian firearm.

National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense

They’re stepping up to the plate.



The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.


 “I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.


Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”

NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.

 “We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”


According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”


 “The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”  


The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.


NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.


Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
