- Army veteran Alex Bosco, the inventor of the pistol stabilizing brace, blasted federal regulators for “flip-flopping” on the legality of his invention while testifying Thursday in front of two House subcommittees.
- Bosco, who created the detachable add-on in 2012, outlined the extensive regulatory process that culminated in the Trump-era Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) approving the brace.
- In January, the ATF reversed course, finalizing a rule that classifies pistols with braces attached as “short-barreled rifles,” which must be registered with the federal government.
