UPDATE: Brace Injunction “Clarification” Set for June 2nd, Amnesty Still Ends May 31st

In an incredible display of government efficiency at its most mediocre , the hearing date to clarify the injunction against the ATF’s brace rule has been set for June 2nd, 48 hours after the amnesty period set by the ATF is set to close. Plaintiffs and the public are left in a limbo period where, per the rule they are to comply in one of the prescribed manners by the 31st of May, but they may have not had to as of the 24th of May but they won’t know whether or not they were no longer under the 31st deadline until 2 days after the deadline, despite it being decided by the court a week before the deadline.


So, you might not have to register or alter your firearm as of yesterday, but you won’t know until two days after the deadline. It may affect everyone with a braced firearm or just the plaintiffs listed. We won’t know until after the amnesty ends whether or not it actually ended or mattered. Fun stuff.
