In a significant development regarding the ATF's pistol brace rule, the House of Representatives has voted in favor of House Joint Resolution 44 (HJR44). The resolution nullifies the ATF's rule, stating that pistol braces are illegal and making gun owners with pistol brace-equipped AR-15 style rifles felons. With a close vote of 219 to 210, the House has sent a strong message against the ATF's stance on pistol braces. However, the resolution must now pass through the Senate, where its fate remains uncertain due to the dominance of a political party traditionally opposed to expanding gun rights. Additionally, the President's support is required for the resolution to become law, and the President has previously expressed reservations about the AR-15 and pistol braces.
