The gun control fact sheet distributed by the White House claims AR-pistols with stabilizer braces are “concealable,” and cited that alleged concealability as a reason the firearms should face a higher level of regulation.
The White House fact sheet says: “The alleged shooter in the Boulder tragedy last month appears to have used a pistol with an arm brace, which can make a firearm more stable and accurate while still being concealable.”
The word “concealable” is relative, at best, in this context, and perhaps misleading. While it is certain that some AR-pistols with stabilizer braces can be concealed in tall backpacks or other bags, they cannot be concealed on a person’s body the same way a traditional pistol or revolver can.
During his speech, Biden also claimed that AR-pistols are “more lethal” if they have a stabilizer brace. He did not provide an explanation for his claim
