What the title says. Knew it wouldn’t stop with the Honey Badger. Sounds like like it’ll be retroactive. This is gonna get ugly folks.
The NFA is definitely a flawed law. It's original intent was to outlaw concealable firearms for the average person, including handguns. Handguns were however removed, so why keep the rest? We should start a #DefundTheATF movement!Until the ATF's ability to make "laws" via a bureaucratic process is "reeled in" this type of confused state of rule enforcement will continue. Laws are supposed to be made through a legislative process; not unilaterally by some bureaucrat sitting behind a desk somewhere. Hopefully SCOTUS will address this problem in the not distant future.
The problem, as I see it, resides with the NFA itself. It is a flawed law.
Arbitrary rule making by a government bureaucrat, concerning pieces of hardware, will never keep pace with the inherent genius and inventiveness of the general population. Until this fundamental legal flaw is acknowledged and addressed, enforcement confusion will continue indefinitely.
I assume I'd get a similar response from Fineswine. Makes sense though that tyrants would protect other tyrants.I once suggested that to my (Demonrat) US Senator. He went off on me about how valuable the BATF was in the war against gun violence, yada, yada, yada. Fortunately, I no longer live in that retarded commie state.
Absolutely this.Knew this was coming when the braces were created.
Not a lawyer, but it sounds to me like ALL AR/AK pistols may be reclassified as AOW, not just the ones with a brace.
Haha! The cops here wouldn't mind if I mounted scud missiles to my vehicle.How will this be enforced, by every local cop and deputy who sees you with one at a traffic stop or at the range.
I completely agree SirAbsolutely this.
I’m surprised people are surprised that things designed to circumvent NFA law (braces/bumpstocks) whether it’s right, wrong, or indifferent...get banned. I have AR “pistols” but I knew I was on borrowed time from their inception.
For the time being, anyway. The antis are well aware of this 'loophole,' and have discussed a significant increase in the cost of registration of NFA weapons many times. I look for transfer tax for a standard Class 3 weapon to run at least $2K, and an AOW a minimum of $500, in the not-so-distant future.The tax stamp for AOW is $5 as opposed to $200.
