ICYMI: Sen. Marshall Slams Biden ATF’s Pistol Brace Ban: “This rule is a dangerous attack on every Americans’ Second Amendment rights”

Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. spoke on the Senate Floor ahead of a vote on a measure he helped introduce that would prevent the Biden Administration’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) from enforcing an unconstitutional ban on pistol braces.

Highlights from his remarks include: 

“This rule is a dangerous attack on every Americans’ Second Amendment rights.” 

“Like many states, we’re seeing an uptick in the rise of crime, with fentanyl flooding across our border. Twenty tons of fentanyl has been seized, we can’t imagine how much has come across this open border. But along with the fentanyl and the open border, we’re seeing crime on the rise, and more and more families feel afraid that they’re not secure.”

“In complete disregard for Americans’ Constitutional rights, Joe Biden enacted an unlawful rule banning stabilizing braces – known commonly as pistol braces – allowing the ATF the full authority under the law to prosecute millions of Americans for firearms they purchased perfectly legally.”

“And as law-abiding Kansans get the book thrown at them under this Second Amendment power grab, the president’s own son commits an actual gun violation felony and he walks away with a sweetheart deal.  I ask you what type of message does that send to law abiding Americans, gun owners across the country? This is wrong.” 

”Sadly, this egregious policy uniquely impacts our nation’s disabled veterans, who use a pistol brace to handle their firearms. For some of these individuals who risked their lives for freedoms, for our freedoms, a pistol brace is the only option for safe and effective firearm use.”

Let me be clear: the National Firearms Act does not give the ATF the authority to ban pistol braces. Congress has not, nor should it ever, give the ATF this power.”

“This rule represents the largest gun grab in American history, potentially impacting as many as 40 million responsible gun owners. We refuse to accept the supersized ATF’s unconstitutional power grab.”
