A Closer Look at the Department of Justice's New Stabilizing Brace Rule
Recently, the U.S. Department of Justice announced a new rule that would address stabilizing braces and other items related to NFA weapons. The final rule is a staggering 300 pages long and does not take effect until it is submitted to the Federal Register, so for now all we can do is speculate about what it contains. One thing we do know for sure, however, is that it allows individuals, retailers and manufacturers 120 days to register tax-free any NFA short-barreled rifles covered by the rule—or face other options such as removing the stabilizing brace or surrendering their weapons to ATF. In this blog post, let’s explore what this new rule means for consumers and gun owners alike.
