Freedom for All from the ATF Pistol Brace Rule

Texas judge rules the ATF pistol brace rule is void. 

Happy Independence Day!

As our American founding fathers began laying the foundation for our country, they laid out every American’s inalienable rights. One of the basic fundamental rights came in the form of the 2nd Amendment. 


Throughout history, our basic foundational rights to bear arms have been threatened in and out of our government system. The most recent has come in the form of the ATF’s Factoring Criteria for Firearms With Attached “Stabilizing Braces.” 


Although the government is working hard to limit our rights there is one critical win that came on June 13th from Federal District Judge Reed O’Connor of the North District of Texas. He held that the ATF’s pistol brace rule is void and that the ATF’s conduct violated “[Administrative Procedures Act]’s procedural requirements because it was arbitrary and capricious and was not a logical outgrowth of the Proposed Rule…” See, Mock, et al., v. Merrick Garland, et al, No: 4:23CV00095-O, Northern District Texas, June 13, 2024, at p. 12.


Judge O’Connor concluded that “the Final Rule violated the APA’s procedural requirements because it was not a logical outgrowth of the Proposed Rule.” Id., at p. 6. 


Thank you Judge O’Connor for upholding our foundational rights to own and operate our firearms in the way that we choose.
