“We all know that because of all the ammunition magazines that can be strapped on to so many pistols that these become automatic weapons similar to AK-47s. Pistols with stabilizing braces, have a reputation in this modern America, though they have been formally forbidden and prohibited, regulated for almost 90 years.” Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL)
“If you have ever seen a gunman fire what looks like a machine gun with just one hand, that’s what pistol braces allow you to do.” Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY)
We have previously written about Joe Biden’s nonsensical claims about pistol-stabilizing braces.
Now as the Senate voted on Friday, June 23, 2023, to overturn the Biden administration rules on pistol-stabilizing braces, Senators Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin make new claims, such as pistol braces turning semi-automatic handguns into machine guns.
