ATF Took Aim at Your Rights and Pulled the Trigger on Making Millions of Americans Criminals Thanks to Biden

For years, the Americans who choose to exercise their Second Amendment rights have often found themselves at odds with the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) agency. This agency operates just like its fellow alphabet boys agencies. Their lies, deceit, and misguidance have taken the American people in the wrong direction yet again.

Despite announcing their forced registration of AR-15 pistol braces months ago, a whopping 0.6 percent have complied with the May 31st deadline.

Those who do not comply with their tyrannical rule would be in violation of U.S.C. 586. If caught, they could face a 10-year prison sentence, a $10,000 fine, or both. When reminding people of this, they also point out that if they lie to a federal official, they could be in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1001. If found guilty, that would add a fine or imprisonment up to five years, or both.

Pistol braces for the AR-15 were designed back in 2012 to help disabled veterans to get back the thrill of shooting a weapon like the M-16 or M-4 they would have likely carried into the heat of battle. While this might not mean much to politicians, or those at the ATF, getting that thrill back and being able to adequately shoot something they are familiar with means the world.

The most interesting part about this is that the ATF previously ruled that pistol braces violated no laws and were perfectly fine to own and use. Biden didn’t like the big scary straps, so he told them to reverse their decision and kiss the ring. This flip-flop from the ATF isn’t unexpected, but it’s a sign that they refuse to stand up for the people from tyranny. It also turned millions of Americans into criminals from law-abiding citizens.
