ATF says no arm braces
« on: October 09, 2020, 05:45:23 PM »
The ATF has sent a cease and desist order to the makers of the Honey Badger AR pistol to stop making and selling them. ATF claims that the arm brace makes them a shoulder fired weapon which then makes them a short barreled rifle or SBR which falls under control of the National Firearms Act. Pure BS.

It's "smoke and mirrors" to convince the politicians and the public that they are doing something. They've been a useless bloated bureaucratic agency, and their leadership sees the writing on the wall. If the President wins re-election their budget will be cut down to nothing, and they will be neutered. Their only hope for an increased budget and to retain relevance is a Democrat government under Biden.

Theres a lot of uproar in the gun community over this one. The company that supplied the brace SB tactical?? had a written statement from the ATF approving their brace. Now they claim its not legal.

The dumbest part of all this is the exact same firearm can be made legal with a $200 tax stamp from the ATF and you can call it a short barrel rifle. But you gotta jump thru the ATF/NFA hoops and it takes a few months. And 200 dollars.
