Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. Ya know, right or wrong on atf changing a “ruling “, just play the game and comply with it. Prior to today you coulda done it for free. And so what if “now you on a list”?.. a list of ONE firearm.. we all on some kind of list somewhere. I have multiple form 2s. I am an 07 manufacturer FFL. Amid all the dancing monkey politicians screaming at each other in dc, I don’t see a swat truck showing up at yer house to forcibly take your braced pistols.. deep breath, and go about your life.

    1. Some states don’t allow common citizens to own NFA regulated items… so the rule change has a huge impact for those folks. Arbitrary and capricious could be one way to describe it. Tyrannical would be another. And still my favorite is “unconstitutional”. I may technically be a spectator too, but I’m gonna call BS when I see it.

  2. Good book. Scary, too.

    Re: Curby’s suggestion, the ATF can’t handle the applications they get now in under a year, so how long does he think that it would take to handle millions more (assuming that every brace owner applied)?

    IIRC, your NFA isn’t legal to own until you actually receive your tax stamp.

    Additionally, if the ruling is vacated (or other legal term), will those new SBRs become non-NFA weapons?

    And more, going with tyranny’s flow encourages the tyrants. Like the frog in the heating water, by the time it gets too hot, it’s too late.

    1. That’s right; for normal nfa items the transferring dealer keeps it until they receive the tax stamp, then and only then is it transferred to you.
      The”amnesty” is just that – ATF is saying you already had an SBR, and have given a grace period to register it. But the paperwork basically, as I see it, is also providing evidence that you in fact did break the law.
      I don’t have an AR with a shorter-than-16″ barrel so this is more of a spectator thing for me … but I find it highly disturbing especially in light of “constructive possession” approaches to enforcement.

    2. Re the frog, as Mrs B said when we were living in CA: the water has evaporated and the frog is now on fire.
