i don't get it either. using the brace for its intended purpose (as a brace), makes little sense. if you need to support your AR pistol by strapping it around your forearm, wouldn't you be better off using a normal pistol without a brace? if you really needed a gun to defend yourself, i don't think that having it strapped around your arm would be the wisest decision.
using the brace to shoulder the firearm is now apparently illegal, despite prior rulings to the contrary. frankly i'm not sure why any of this matters. a lot of gun laws seem stupid/arbitrary to me. i can own a pistol and i can own a rifle, but i can't own a pistol with a rifle stock or a rifle without a stock? i can even own an AK or AR "pistol," but only if it is built on a lower that was not registered as a "rifle" lower... even though an AK/AR "rifle" lower is identical to a "pistol" lower.
