The ATF Needs to Hear From You

Right now, there are two proposed regulations from the ATF that have been drafted and are open to public comment before they go into effect. The ATF needs to hear from you on these rules because they need to know that gun owners care about these issues and will not be quiet. The position NMSSA has taken on both of these proposed regulations is to OPPOSE them. The links to leave a comment for each proposed rule are included in the descriptions.

First, the ATF has proposed a rule to redefine what is a firearm receiver. This would change the definition of a firearm receiver and expand the category of what the ATF can regulate as a “completed firearm.” This would infringe on your ability to make your own firearms at home if you choose to do so.

Second, the ATF has proposed a rule that would redefine some firearms with stabilizing braces as short-barreled rifles. A firearm owner with a stabilizing brace considered to be a short-barreled rifle under the new rule would have to register their firearm with the ATF under the NFA or risk being charged with a felony.

Even if you don’t manufacture your own firearms at home or own a firearm with a stabilizing brace, you should care about what the ATF is proposing because they are directly seeking to greatly expand their authority and rule making capabilities. Further, these proposed rules are just the start what the ATF will try to do under the Biden administration.
