This rule will go into effect on August 24, 2022.

See Published Version Here.

Update 4/11/22

The White House issued a Press Release before the 2:15 PM ET announcement today about ATF Rule 2021-05. The Final Rule Can Be Found Here. We are currently analyzing the differences between this final rule and the previously proposed rule. Stay tuned... 

Update 4/10/22

Press is reporting that there will be an announcement from the White House regarding the ATF Rule 2021-05 on Monday, April 11th at 2:15 PM ET.

This would allow the ATF to expand its nearly billion-record gun registry as well as regulate gun parts as firearms.


Thanks to organizations like Firearms Policy Coalition and Gun Owners of America, you can start taking action immediately to encourage our Congress to eliminate ATF's illegal gun registry and repeal the ATF rule under the Congressional Review Act.

Update 3/6/2022

On March 4, 2022 the NY Times reported that the rule would be finalized in early April and would go into effect 60 days later. 

See excerpt from NY TIMES:

"But two White House officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter, said Mr. Richardson had misspoken and that the rule would, in fact, be finished by early April. They said that another claim by Mr. Richardson, that enforcement of the regulation would begin 90 days after the rule was completed, was also off base, and that the gap would be closer to 60 days.

The ghost gun rule is moving faster than most federal regulations."

ATF "GHOST GUN" RULE 2021R-05, Definition of “Frame or Receiver” and Identification of Firearms 

The ATF released their proposed rule regarding 80 lowers / ghost guns in May of 2021.

You can read about rule 2021R-5 here.

There was an update on January 31, 2022 in the Federal Register Vol. 87 No. 20 that provided more clarity on when a final rule would go in place. 

The document reveals on page 357 that it is in the "Final Rule Stage" and that the final action date will most likely be by JUNE of 2022 (6/00/22).

This new rule redefines the terms "receiver" and "frame". By doing this, they are changing the longstanding definition of a firearm.

This will severely infringe upon the rights of law abiding citizens. It is an attack on firearm owners, builders and dealers. This new ruling will leave honest people with one less method for self-defense.

In this proposed rule, the definition of what constitutes a “firearm” is rewritten so that practically every component of every gun is now legally a firearm!
