Washington, D.C. — Today, Gun Owners of America (GOA) led two coalition letters from the Second Amendment Action Alliance and the No Compromise Alliance to Speaker McCarthy and other members of House leadership urging them to pass a resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act to block the Biden Pistol Brace Ban. The Second Amendment Action Alliance represents numerous online influencers with a combined following of over 30 million viewers. The No Compromise Alliance represents various members within the firearms trade industry. Notably, this is GOA’s largest industry coalition effort to date.
The Biden Pistol Brace Ban will take full effect on June 1st, and owners of pistol braces have until that date to turn in, register, or destroy their lawfully owned braces. After that date, those in possession of an unregistered pistol brace could face felony charges and a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. Researchers estimate that 10-40 million of these braces are in circulation.
While a resolution of disapproval would likely face a veto from President Biden, it would still force vulnerable Democratic Senators to go on the record as to whether they support turning their own constituents into felons simply for owning one of these braces. IfSource: Gun Owners of America
