And in this week’s episode of Florida Man…

Florida Congressman Ted Deutsch (D, Florida’s 22 district, parts of Broward County, surprise!) introduces a bill to Congress H.R. 1263

Official Title as Introduced
To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act any semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine.

It has been a week and the bill has not seen one co-sponsor yet which leads me to believe they think they do not have a chance in hell to even get out of committee. But, think of it as a warning, think of it as an item in their wish list.

  1. Even the most ardent ‘real’ gun controller (as opposed to this virtue signalling idjit) knows all too well that this is logistically impossible.
    There are less than 500,000 NFA machineguns (not including suppressors SBRs/SBSs/AOWs) on the registry and current transfer paperwork times are in the 6 to 12 month range for the few that are bought and sold each year.

    There’s somewhere in the galactic neighborhood an estimated 30 times that number of just AR-15s in private hands – not to mention every other make and model of magazine fed semi auto rifle.

    Both the ATF and the FBI would have to expand something on the order of a minimum of 100 times their current size to accommodate this idiocy and have transfers take a – possible – acceptable day or two, instead of months. Ludicrous.

    What do your Florida politicians mix with their whisky, some of that South American Cocaine?

  2. What Miles said.

    Plus, there is already a bill to BAN so-called “assault weapons”, and it has gained 180 co-sponsors.

    When they’re out to ban them entirely, why would they support a bill to allow legal (albeit onerous) ownership?

    1. Because 50 years of the NFA made Hughes possible and 30 years after Hughes only Surgeons, CEOs, and celebrities can afford to buy a machine gun.

      They are in it for the long haul.

  3. Guys, for $575 bucks a year you can get an FFL 07manufacturer and an ATF SOT, then you can build all the full auto toys you want. And surpressors sbr sbs ect ect. Paperwork takes 2 DAYS. I built my M16 for about a grand. Last count I heard was 750000-800000 registered machineguns in US total, meanwhile make a polite pain in the a$$ of your self to your “leaders”. We had a bill here in Maine “to allow municipalities to enact noise ordinance to shut down noisey gun ranges”. They got so many emails calls and letters against it and the 2 towns whining about it did too that it got canned. We the People won one here
    NEVER QUIT THE FIGHT. NEVER. NEVER NEVER

    1. I’ll admit I haven’t looked at the details, but don’t FFL licensees have to surrender their civil rights, such as the right not to be searched without a warrant? Or is that a faulty memory?

    2. Would you mind a couple of questions about the FFL07 and SOT?

      In particular … say you have both, and want to build a machine gun. What additional paperwork do you have to go through, to build the gun? Waiting time for permission? Etc.

      Thanks!

      1. A Class 2 SOT enters the firearm nomenclature into his bound book and files a Form 2 notice of NFA firearms manufactured (or imported) with ATF by the close of the next business day keeping a record copy.

        No waiting time before you make, it’s a notification of manufacture.

    3. Don’t forget the $2275 yearly ITAR registration fee that the State Department gets from poeple manufacturing items on the U.S. Munitions List (mgs being one)

  4. No, it’s a steppingstone to their main interest: after doing this and the inevitable resistance use that to justify the systematic rounding up and extermination of all gun owners by going door to door killing us all with impunity to lower our numbers and our bodies in As well is in the military and police since they would be opposition to liberal utopia so they can fill it with loyalists will then proceed to literally nuclear carpet bomb the country to kill as many United states citizens as possible and bring in people from Central America, South America and other various countries to be a slave labor force.

  5. All that aside, how can a state legislature order the Federal IRS to do anything? How can a state legislature require any part of the Fed.gov to do anything?

    Heck, last year, the state voted to stay on DST 365 days a year, but that requires approval from the US senate and they wouldn’t even do something they’re supposed to do. This should have virtually been just rubber stamping “OK” on it, for all practical purposes. (To be honest, they often don’t do things they’re supposed to do – like pass budgets instead of continuing resolutions).
