As many as 40 million privately-owned firearm parts could be declared illegal and ordered confiscated under a radical new decree from President Joe Biden.

Under a new rule issued at Biden’s direction by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) commonly-owned pistol braced firearms are now considered illegal short-barreled rifles and shotguns under the National Firearms Act of 1934.

The independent and non-partisan Congressional Research Service estimates that up to 40 million such pistol braces for AR-pistols, AK-pistols, and certain classes of weapons that shoot shotgun shells are currently in civilian possession.

Biden’s new rule gives Americans 120 days to either turn in their pistol braces or register them with the government and pay a $200 tax.  Americans who do not comply, including those who did not hear of the new rule, could face felony charges.

Also, since the new rule reclassifies pistols as rifles, Americans living in states where short-barreled rifles are illegal will have no choice but to turn over their weapons entirely.

The new rule is the largest gun confiscation order ever issued by executive decree.

Civil rights groups are speaking out in opposition to Biden’s gun confiscation order.

“This administration continues to find new ways to attack gun owners, and this time their target is brace-equipped firearms that allow persons with disabilities to safely and effectively use pistols. We will continue to work with our industry partners to amplify the disapproving voices in the firearms industry, and the Gun Owners Foundation, our sister legal arm, will be filing suit in the near future,” said Erich Pratt, Senior Vice President of Gun Owners of America.

 “President Biden just initiated the largest federal gun registration scheme in our nation’s history without even the passage of a new law. GOA is actively working with Congress to pass a resolution blocking this rule under the Congressional Review Act, and we continue to lobby lawmakers to support Rep. Clyde and Sen. Marshall’s Stop Harassing Owners of Rifles Today (SHORT) Act. If President Biden will not sign such legislation, then Congress must defund this rogue agency,” said Aidan Johnston, GOA’s Director of Federal Affairs.

“The National Association for Gun Rights and our legal foundation oppose this unconstitutional rule from the ATF and are currently dissecting the nearly 300-page gun ban,” said Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights, which had 25,000 members submit public comment letters in opposition.

“We are exploring all legal options in opposition to this heinous federal overreach which will turn millions of law-abiding gun owners into felons unless they destroy or register their guns with the federal government,” added Brown. 

“Nowhere in the Second Amendment, and nowhere in the Constitution does the ATF or federal government have the authority to outright ban firearms accessories, and we’re not going to let the ATF and Biden administration simply destroy our right to keep and bear arms,” concluded Brown.   


  1. as always, this is what democrats do. make it a law then fight to keep it. biden is a criminal who wants to destroy the USA. he must be removed from office and all democrats voted OUT OF OFFICE. biden is going to start a civil war. why do people vote for such people like biden, pelosi, shumer, and all democrats . they hate all people and only want money and power.

  2. i made a comment earlier but it didn’t pass muster. i guess i said some unacceptable things about the current POTUS. it was apparently disapproved. once again free speech is denied by socialist.

  3. so my second comment is gone. can’t say anything bad about current events. but, i can delete this news source…….so..BYE!

  4. How many gang shootings are done with pistol braced firearms? Probably none, because it is too hard to conceal. What does the government fear? Innocent citizens accurately defending themselves and more dead criminals?

  5. What’s this brain dead senile old fool trying to do, make himself into a dictator? There are going to be so many lawsuits against this EO that it will tie the courts up for a long time. Does he think that the American citizens are so stupid that they will willingly turn over any of those items, or even register them, to the government? These left wingers and their line of actions are doing nothing but pizzing off millions of people, and pushing this country closer and closer to that second war for independence that has been discussed for several years now. When it comes it will not only tear this country apart, but it just might be that the United States of America will cease to exist.

  6. Biden does not have the authority to make laws. He only has the authority to enforce laws made by the legislative branch and the sooner he learns that the better.

  7. All this talk about how our rights are being usurped gets us no where unless Congress actually does something to stop it. Will they? I’m not convinced anything will be done.

  8. The atf has no Constitutional authority to make laws.
    Any and all laws contrary to the Constitution are ILLEGAL AND UNENFORCEABLE !

  9. This is not “gun confiscation “. This is sensible action taken to prevent further senseless gun violence in America , something which has gotten way out of hand because of the machinations of the murderous NRA and its craven paid stooges in the Republican party .

    1. Dear Boby Dimwit, You are obviously unaware that the NRA is the oldest civil rights organization in this country. The problem is not guns. The problem is people.

  10. Open borders where all the world’s worse can just walk in and they have. Yet all Biden is worried about is legally owned weapons. How are we to protect our own from these illegals who attract us. The law won’t. In fact our so called law helps the criminals more then us. Our own vp helps Free them .

  11. What a waist of time.These guns are very hared to aim with this brace.I tried to aim one and it sucks big time.They look neat but are useless for any combat .It is like holding out a 10lb weight with one can not hold it up that long.There are many great hand guns and rifles that will serve you better than this thing.Like every thing else the ATF do’s is like a woman that never had children telling every body how to raise a child.If you really want to buy a great gun to protect your family ask a war Vet.People that have been in combat will not BS you.Be careful out there,Semper Fi.

  12. We the people must stand up to this TYRANT, not letting him and his people control us like this. WE are FREE and have a voice and we have the power to stop him. TERM LIMITS NOW!!

  13. FJB, this is all unconstitutional,period.Braces are for the disabled and elderly.Hidenbiden is totally dilusional about guns,he doesn’t have a clue, and is irrational.he doesn’t know a semi,from a auto,single shot, educate yourself before u run your mouth.
