Stabilizing braces are not a factor in shooters killing people. They don't hurt or give an advantage / make guns more lethal. They are simply a device used to rest a firearms barrel on for a steadier aim. This bill passing would affect many adult & youths ability to hunt, people that are physically handicapped or older people that still Hunt but their not as steady as they used to be. For example.... Let's say an individual only has one arm, how is that individual supposed to shoot a rifle during hunting season, with only one arm? They can't. They need stabilizing braces in order to hold the gun up for them to shoot. This bill is completely ridiculous in it's entirety!
