Attorney General Paxton argues that,The stabilizing brace is used for a range of legitimate purposes. For many, the accessory helps reduce recoil, prevent injury, and allows individuals to more safely and accurately operate a pistol. The accessory also allows disabled individuals to more easily and safely control heavy pistols without assistance.” He also states that his office “will consider all available options to stop this action and any effort to restrict Second Amendment rights.
