We (Magpul) yelled at our lobbyists to kill it. NSSF was trying to kill it. NRA was trying to kill it. But…Trump apparently dislikes two things in the firearms world: bumpfire stocks and elephant hunting, for reasons that are his own. So a veto was not happening. So…what’s your play? You can say “No bans, not one inch” and send out a fundraising email, and everyone would feel good about the NRA position, but the ban would have passed, and the Dems would potentially have everything they needed for a semi-auto ban already in law, ready to be interpreted nefariously
I am sharing this post because the author went in to do actually warfare and found out the reality of how the baloney is made. I have said since day one I am not a writer but a pamphleteer, so maybe I am not coming across the right way and this article will clear things for you. Please, click on the link and read the article.
Repealing the NFA, as much as I want that to die, has about 5% support in Congress right now. You’re not getting that legislatively unless you change out 95% of Congress, no matter how hard we could push for it, or how many “strong statements” anyone makes.
I want to once again repeat that we cannot hold ourselves hostages to NFA. If you measure the value of the NRA because of your ability to bet a MP-5 for $300 at your local Gun Show, you are setting you and everybody else for failure.
It is up to you.
