Opinion: Biden’s Gun Confiscation Scheme: Millions of Firearm Owners May Soon Become Felons

By

The Biden administration is proposing a revision to current federal gun regulations that would create a dangerous scenario for many firearm owners.

The proposed rule from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives would make the majority of firearms with stabilizing pistol braces illegal, The Reload reported.

“Owners would have to register, turn in, or disassemble the guns to avoid federal felony charges,” according to The Reload.

Stabilizing brace inventor Alex Bosco called it “the largest gun registration, destruction, and confiscation scheme in American history.”

The braces make it easier to use firearms with increased accuracy and with one hand.

They have been allowed in the U.S. since 2012, but have come under scrutiny due to their use in mass shootings. One was used in the Boulder, Colorado, supermarket shooting in March, which resulted in 10 deaths.

The ATF only lists two crimes committed with the braces.

“While there are no available statistics to gauge authoritatively the number of stabilizing braces already made and sold in the United States, unofficial estimates suggest that there are between 10 and 40 million stabilizing braces and similar components already in civilian hands,” a Congressional Research Service report from April said.
