The ATF is in the process of passing a new rule that could soon turn 40 million Americans into FELONS.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) recently implemented a pistol brace final rule that could classify millions of gun owners as felons should they fail to comply with the updated requirements, according to the gun rights advocacy groups.
The rule, announced in January, will void all previous guidance on pistols braces, opting to redefine “rifle” as any weapon “designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder,” forcing pistol brace owners, many disabled, to register their pistols as short barrel rifles (SBR) with the federal government.
The ATF has allowed 120 days for gun owners with pistol braces to adjust the barrel longer than the required 16 inches, file a Form 1 to “make” the pistol an SBR, remove the brace, surrender the firearm or destroy the firearm.
Should pistol brace owners decide to remove the brace from their firearm, they will need to destroy the attachment so that it cannot be reinstalled, an action the ATF has no authority to regulate, according to the National Rifle Association (NRA).
During yesterday’s morning talk show, Glenn Beck explained exactly what the ATF would like to achieve, and how this new rule is just a ‘gateway drug’ in order to ‘disarm’ Americans.
Why? Because the far-left FEARS YOU, Glenn says. ‘They’re trying to do anything they can to take away everything that gives you at least a CHANCE to give them pause.”
GLENN: There’s something that is — the ATF is doing. That is absolutely beyond the realm. While you feel less safe because more criminals are on the streets because the DA’s office usually when the office is controlled by George Soros. They are just letting criminals go.
The DA used to be the guy that would stand up for the victim. But now we’ve switched that. Without — with disregard to, you know, thousands of years of precedent. Of showing that when the prosecuting attorney. When the DA, if you will, when that person that is declared by law, to clean up crime, when they are clean. And they are looking to defend the victim, things are great.
When they’re dirty, or they just have just a sweet, sweet spirit for, you know, the criminals and disregard the victim, society falls apart.
Well, that’s what’s happening. Because, again, we’re not applying any common sense. We’re — we’re listening to, quote, men of science.
As we now know, men of science have been totally corrupted. The ATF has just put a new rule out. It puts 40 million people at risk of being felons.
Joe Biden, he instructed the ATF, a bunch of unelected bureaucrats that don’t — you don’t know their name. You didn’t see this process.
Nobody voted on this process. But thanks to Woodrow Wilson, we have an out-of-control administrative arm, and now the ATF is just making up new laws.
They have finalized a rule, that will turn 40 million Americans, into somebody that can be hauled off into prison.
They have reclassified firearms. With pistol braces, as short-barreled rifles.
Okay? Short-barreled rifles are illegal. You can get a special stamp for them. The ATF. If you have any kind of special weapon. You know, you have an old Gatling gun.
You have an automatic rifle. You have to have an ATF stamp. You get it from the government. They do all — they do months of investigation on you, to make sure that you’re going to be safe with that.
And then it has all kinds of rules. That if you don’t keep it safe, if you’re traveling without it, you hand it to somebody else, who is not on your stamp.
That you and they can go to prison. I mean, it’s crazy.
Now, they have just decided, that these guns that were legal to buy, are not going to be grandfathered in.
They were absolutely legal to buy.
They now have to be surrendered to the ATF. So you have to give them to the ATF.
Or you have to ask for the stamp. And you’ll have 120 days, to come into compliance.
Either give them the gun. Or get the stamp. As someone who has one of those stamps, but would have to apply for a new stamp for a gun like this, I can guarantee you, that there’s no way in hell, that you will get that stamp in 120 days.
There’s no way. First of all, they have to issue 40 million.
Now, as somebody who has done this, under the Obama administration, it took me eight months closer probably to a year, to get that stamp.
Never thought it would ever come honestly. Now, they have rules. You have to — they have to do it, within I don’t know, 200 days or whatever it is.
They have to issue that stamp. Otherwise, you know, it’s their fault. And what are you going to — I’m going to call the police?
