As reflected in a notice issued through the Federal Register electronic notice system, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives intends to publish tomorrow, Friday, December 18, 2020, its “Objective Factors for Classifying Stabilizer Braces” in the Federal Register, which we previously blogged about in our article ATF to Institute Rulemaking Regarding Stabilizing Braces and Require Registration of Currently Owned Braces.
Interested parties are only being afforded 14 days to comment, seemingly in violation of the provisions of the Gun Control Act requiring a 90 day comment period. Interested parties should immediately begin preparing their comments for submission, given the extremely short comment period.
If you or your company wish to file a comment in support or opposition to a notice of proposed rulemaking/guidance by a federal administrative agency, contact Firearms Industry Consulting Group today to discuss your rights and legal options.
