Less than three months ago U.S. Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-GA, introduced a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to prevent the Biden Administration’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) from enforcing what he called an unconstitutional pistol brace rule. This week, the resolution passed the House with bipartisan support by a vote of 219-210.
“Every day, millions of Americans — including many service-disabled veterans — rely on stabilizing braces to exercise their Second Amendment freedoms. Yet through the ATF’s rule, the Biden Administration is attempting to circumvent Congress’ sole legislative authority by using executive fiat to turn these law-abiding gun owners into criminals for simply attaching this beneficial brace to their firearm,” said Clyde.
“By passing H.J.Res. 44, the House has sent a resounding message to both the judicial system and the nation that it firmly rejects the ATF’s unconstitutional rule and executive overreach, unapologetically defends service-disabled veterans’ unalienable right to keep and bear arms and refuses to back down in the fight to protect all Americans’ Second Amendment liberties. I applaud our colleagues for joining us in taking a stand against the ATF’s brazen overreach and unlawful pistol brace rule.”
