Update: 12-August 2021
We just wanted to remind all of our clients, friends and colleagues that only a few days remain to submit your feedback to the ATF regarding the proposed rule change of definitions to receivers/frames and braces. This is a big unnecessary change by those who desperately want to further deny our constitutional rights. If you are not aware of these proceedings, we suggest to read the information below.
ATF Proposed Rule: Pistol Braces and Frame/Receivers
To all our Friends and Firearm owners of America,
By law, the ATF has to provide us an opportunity to make our voices heard by offering a time and place for comment on these proposed rulings. We have witnessed just this last December how effective our united voices can be in helping fight the constant battle for our 2nd Amendment rights. Groups like “Second Amendment Alliance“, “Firearms Policy Coalition“, “Gun Owners Of America” and many others across this great country can use these comments and all of our support to help fight this legislation now and into the future!
Please take some time and respectfully submit your comments. We have seen what they do when an inch is given. This has nothing to do if you like or dislike “Pistol Braces” and or “DIY 80% receivers”. This has to do with the principal “OUR RIGHTS”. As firearm owners “WE” are all in this together and need to stand united
-ATF Proposed Rule 2021-R08, Factoring Criteria for Firearms with Attached “Stabilizing Braces”-
- Be Aware, If you commented in December 2020, that comment will not be applied to this Rule. This is a new rule and will require a new comment.
- Be an individual. No cut and paste, templates Etc.
- Be respectful and professional
- Braces were previously approved by BATFE and then revised multiple times regarding use and configuration. Advisories were issued after these discussions.
- Over 3 Million braces sold and in the possession of American citizens. These citizens purchased these items under the premise that these were approved by BATFE. There was no legal issue owning and using these products. Hence the numbers in circulation today.
- This will make criminals out of millions of citizens with this implementation
- Possibility to criminalize the manufacturers of other products relating to these ex: large pistols if worksheets are incorrectly submitted seems a bit much
- How does this affect the Disabled Veterans for which these braces were originally intended for?
- Vague overall. Too much room for varied interpretation
- Burdensome regarding enforcement and implementation
- Appears to be a large scale tax and registration campaign
- Please help comment and get the numbers up
- Make Comment, be Respectful and Professional.
- Discuss how this will impact you as well as it’s impact on businesses, etc
- Be an individual. No cut and paste or templates
- Talk about how these changes would further complicate already defined items from the BATFE, Example AR15 style firearms, Glock Style Etc.
- Talk about how difficult and burdensome it would be to enforce and interpret
- Discuss how this will criminalize legal home builders
- This is a basic self defense right, inexpensive self defense options, etc
- Boxes out certain demographics from attainable means of self defense through the additional costs
- Please comment and help get the numbers up
H.R. 4953 would regulate most semi-automatic rifles under the National Firearms Act (NFA).
We wanted to bring this to everyone’s attention. Late last week, H.R 4953 was introduced by Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL). According to this bill, if a semi-automatic rifle has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine, it will then be regulated as an NFA item. Yes you heard that right. Even the basic Ruger 10/22 will fall under this category. Now imagine, law abiding citizens that live in states like California who do not allow NFA items will be forced to give up their legally owned property.
We’ve heard all the usual excuses as to why not to voice an opinion like “I own a bolt action so I dont care about semi-auto. Rifles dont need magazines, Rifles should not be semi-auto, Etc”. Now, make no mistake. This bill impacts us all in the firearms community. If bills like this pass, do you actually think they will stop there? Like all other anti-firearm bills previously introduced, this is a blatant attack on everyone’s constitutional rights. We urge you to please contact your state representatives and ask them to vote against this bill.
DOJ has released their proposal for redefining 80 percents and other parts to be considered as firearms.

Well, Biden’s demand / deadline has come and gone. As instructed by Biden, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has released their new proposals. Now the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has a 90 day comment period. We at Kerberos Industries strongly suggest that all firearm owners take a moment of time to read these new proposals.

Biden Calls for sweeping gun bans
Today, Joe Biden called for sweeping gun bans by the US Senate which directly attack the US Constitution.
“We can ban Assault Weapons and High Capacity magazines in this country once again… The United States Senate should immediately pass the two House-passed bills (H.R. 8, H.R. 1446) and we should also ban Assault Weapons in the process.”
No never-mind the existing gun laws already on the books to include “Murder” as a criminal act. Colorado already has strict gun laws such as:
• Universal Background Checks
• Red Flag gun seizure laws
• “Hi-capacity” magazine bans
Yet, none of these laws would have stopped this guy from doing what he set out to do. Joe Biden, Harris, Feinstein, and the anti-gun groups want to make people believe that no laws exist to deter crime especially gun laws. Or that anyone can walk into a store and walk right out with a gun, better yet walk into a store and buy a military “Assault Weapon”. This is obvious to those of us who follow the laws. Well, lets try to shed some light to those not in the know.
On a federal level we have:
National Firearms Act (NFA34) The law also required the registration of all NFA firearms with the Secretary of the Treasury. Firearms subject to the 1934 Act included shotguns and rifles having barrels less than 18 inches in length, certain firearms described as “any other weapons,” machine guns, and firearm mufflers and silencers.
Gun Control Act of 1968 also known as the (GCA68). On its own “This Legislation regulated interstate and foreign commerce in firearms, including importation, “prohibited persons”, and licensing provisions”.
Firearm Owners Act (also known as the (GCA86). The Act also amended the GCA68 to prohibit the transfer or possession of machine guns.
Brady Law “The Brady Law imposed as an interim measure a waiting period of 5 days before a licensed importer, manufacturer, or dealer may sell, deliver, or transfer a handgun to an unlicensed individual”.
These are just a few of the laws on a federal level not including the countless laws at the state levels. With all this said, which of the multitude of laws were not enforced which allowed this guy to obtain a firearm?
Anti-gun bills on the move!
As we brought to you before, anti-gun bills are being rammed through the US Congress at lightning speed. This week alone, HR 8 and HR 1446 passed the House of Representative and now heading to the US Senate for a vote.
It may seem like there isn’t anything we can do since they control Congress and the White House. Well in fact there still is. We ask you to continue writing and calling your senators and representative no matter how mute it is and ask them to oppose these radical bills in congress. Also ask your representatives and senators to pass 2nd Amendment protections at state and local levels. Remember “States Rights”. If states can thumb their nose at the feds and pass laws like sanctuary cities, we can also do the same. We can have laws at state and local levels that can protect us from the illegal overreach.
This movement will take all of us. Every single firearms owner needs to step up. This is not about “I don’t own that”; “I reload, I don’t buy ammunition”; “I don’t care about semi auto”; etc. If you are in these groups and think you are safe? Well think again. Give Anti gun Democrats an inch they will take a mile and more. This is “Death by 1000 Cuts”. Once they are done with the low hanging fruit, they will be back for the rest. We need to stand together.
New Firearm Regulations on the Horizon.
Congress is already hard at work wasting even more of our tax dollars in creating nonsense gun laws. The laws that are proposed and moving forward in the House of Representatives do nothing but burden the law abiding citizen of this country from exercising a god given right that is also protected by the United States Constitution. This is not hearsay or fake news. You can read these bills yourself via the links we have added below. The links are directly from CONGRESS.GOV, where all proposed bills to congress are available for public view.
There is little that can be done to stop these type of bills from being enacted now that we lost the majority in the US Congress. We now urge you to contact your state senators and representative to urge them to not only vote against these bills in Congress but also vote down these type of bills in your home states. We also need to ask and urge our state senators and representatives to pass 2nd Amendment protection acts in order to defend us with in our own states. We do however have another chance in 2 years to regain both US Senate and the US House of Representative. In the mean time, we need to do everything we can at the state level to defend our Constitutional rights.
H.R Bill 121: To provide for the hiring of 200 additional Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents and investigators to enforce gun laws.
H.R Bill 127 : To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition.
H.R Bill 125 : To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide for a 7-day waiting period before a semiautomatic firearm, a silencer, armor piercing ammunition, or a large capacity ammunition magazine may be transferred.
I voted today. In person. Wearing a mask. During a pandemic. Before I continue, this is not about names on a ballot or whether masks are necessary or not. These are currently hot button topics that most of us have opinions on. You are entitled to your personal opinions, and as a free thinking individual, you should have opinions. Unfortunately, conversations regarding these things often tend to get aggressive, and I have no desire to engage in them.
Voting is a constitutionally guaranteed right. The 15th amendment, as well as the 19th amendment, guarantees you the right to vote, regardless of your race, color, or gender. Voting in 2020 has been nothing short of interesting. Mail in ballots, in person voting, even talk of postponing elections has been a gigantic bone of contention across our nation. This is not really about that either. This is about my personal stance on voting.
In August of 1920, the 19th amendment to the US Constitution was ratified. It took 72 years for women to be granted the right to vote. Women like Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, Julia Ward Howe, Mary Garrett Hay, and dozens, if not hundreds of other women, worked tirelessly to earn women the right to vote. Women like Lucy Burns, Dorothy Day, Dora Lewis, Alice Cosu, were reportedly jailed and beaten for marching to demand their right to vote. Wives stood up and went against their husbands, and suffered at their hands. They created organizations like The League of Women Voters. They met in secret, and stood up in public. They marched, they stood in silence, they wrote, they spoke, they refused to give up. These women not only rocked the boat, they capsized that bitch. The right for women to vote was a long, hard, dangerous journey, and I have never once taken it for granted.
I hear people say things like, “I don’t bother to vote, because my voice is not heard.” “I don’t bother to vote, because it doesn’t matter.” “I don’t have a way to get there.” “My work schedule won’t allow me.” etc., etc., Excuses, all of them. There is a long list of volunteer agencies that can get you to your polling location. You can ask friends, neighbors, and family. You can vote early, just like I did today. Your employer is required by law to give you time off to vote. I have yet to miss a presidential election and I try REALLY hard to vote in every local election. I read my voters pamphlet. I look at the candidates and do background research. I take it about as seriously as one can. Why? Because 72 years of fight, deserves that.
2020 marks 100 years of women having the right to vote. The women mentioned above did not risk their lives and liberty, for us to sit idly by and let their fight go unrecognized. It’s not about whether or not you dislike the top two choices for the big seat, there are plenty of other options. There are local representatives on the ballot and possibly local legislation as well. Exercise your right. Flex your ‘feminism’, because that is exactly what this is, an act of feminism. A powerful one, too.
2020 has thrown a lot at us. It has been a year of struggle for many. It has made us angry, scared, uncertain, anxious, and about every other emotion you can list. It has brought out the best in some, and the worst in others. People are using the word ‘rights’ more than ever. We have an incredible number of inalienable rights in this country. I try to exercise as many of them as I can, as often as I can, because I can. I will unequivocally support others’ rights to do the same, even if I may not agree with the platform or the way they go about it. Exercising your rights is imperative! Not everyone in the world is afforded that luxury. There are places where women are still not considered equal to male citizens. We are lucky in comparison.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg said – “Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.” Regardless of how you feel about the late Justice, she was absolutely 100% correct with this one.
I voted today. In person. Wearing a mask. During a pandemic. I may not be Susan B. Anthony, but when my ballot was cast, and my name was called aloud, followed by ‘has voted’, I hope she heard it, loud and clear.
Duncan Vs California Amicus Brief Submissions
By now Im pretty sure everyone is aware of the case Duncan vs The State of California regarding standard capacity magazines. Recently a ruling by a 3 judge panel said that the standard also known as “High Capacity” magazine ban is in fact unconstitutional. Well the Governor of California along with the AG of California have decided that this ruling must not be tolerated. They are now wasting further tax payer dollars to fight what is in fact unconstitutional in order to have an Enbanc hearing. To add further insult to injury, multiple Amicus briefs have been filed in favor of the Governor and AG by multiple institutions to include 12 AG’s from various other states.
Take a read at the information presented by our friends at the CRPA and Michel and Associates. Is your states AG involved? Is your states AG furthering the suppression of constitutional rights? The battle ground is in California. If you can, support our brothers and sisters in the fight against these unconstitutional bans. Remember, California is the proving ground for these type of laws. If not stopped, they will spread across the nation.
