Gun Control Witness Admits To Meeting ATF Director Ahead Of Pistol Brace Rule

It’s that time again! Biden administration is attempting to take away the rights of law-abiding Second Amendment-supporting Americans. The latest example of this is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) recently issuing a rule cracking down on pistol braces.

This rule directly affects law-abiding citizens who use the braces to make their handguns more stable and accurate.

The House Judiciary Committee recently held a hearing to discuss this rule, with Rob Wilcox, senior director of policy for the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety, testifying that he spoke with ATF Director Steven Dettelbach before the agency issued the rule.

This conversation was revealed after the House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio asked Wilcox if he and anyone in his organization had communicated with the ATF or the Biden administration prior to the notice of proposed rule-making. Wilcox was evasive at first, but eventually admitted to the conversations.

The ATF first approved the pistol stabilizing brace add-on in 2012, ruling that the device “would not alter the classification of a pistol or other firearm”. The bureau finalized a rule in January 2023 classifying pistols with braces attached as “short-barreled rifles”, which must be registered with the federal government.

Jordan compared Wilcox’s interactions with Dettelbach to interactions between National School Boards Association (NSBA) officials and White House staff before the group submitted a letter requesting that the Biden administration use domestic terrorism statutes to combat threats of violence directed at public officials.

This comparison shows that the Biden administration is actively attempting to use the government to take away the rights of law-abiding Second Amendment-supporting Americans.

The Biden administration has already proven that it does not care about the rights of law-abiding citizens. The ATF rule on pistol braces is just another example of the government overreach that has become all too common in the Biden era.

It is up to citizens to protect their rights and call out the Biden administration on its attempts to take away the rights of the people. We do that by voting out big government clowns who want to rip American rights away.
