Good news out of the 5th Circuit! Still don't know the scope of the ruling. Hopefully the judge will vacate it the same as the frame 'rule'.

Run time is 11;51

That's not what the court said.

They said it was "likely unconstitutional" and sent the case back to the district court to reconsider an injunction - which they didn't issue.

A victory? Probably. But that headline doesn't match what the court said.

Details here from the Firearms Policy Coalition who is litigating this case: https://www.firearmspolicy.org/fifth-ci ... ly-illegal

So it’s still illegal because the judge didn’t rule on it, correct?

Here's John Kennedy, Republican Senator from Louisiana, defending the use of pistol braces sometime in June or July 2023.

Pistol Brace Rule DECLARED UNCONSTITUTIONAL…

@bstrawse, if this latest regulation is overruled, do you think ATF can go back to where braces were not SBR until they were shouldered?

if the rule is overturned, we'd go back to the previous state of affairs, which would be exactly as you described.

Yes, the 5th Circuit issued their opinion and struck down the rule.
