Everyone needs to wake up.
This ^Yeah , get your tax stamps and get all those MSRs registered so in a year or two they can come back and take them because they know exactly who has what. Nope ! Not me. That is if I had any of those scary MSRs which I don't. Just my pistols and a 30-30 lever rifle.
Looks like a lot of ambiguity.The ATF has leaked a notice that purports to provide guidance to gun owners on pistol stabilizing braces. It's not great news for gun owners.www.gunsamerica.com
I think that's the point.Looks like a lot of ambiguity.
Well said, but I don’t think they care anymore. Write it vaguely so they can apply it anyway they want and put the burden on the individual.The "Guidance" provided by the ATF is absolutely mind-boggling. I really think the ATF may be intentionally trying to violate so many Constitutional Amendments and federal laws that the attorneys who will inevitably sue them won't know where to start. The guidance is unconstitutionally vague, has the makings of a serious Takings Clause violation, and quite possibly violates the Americans With Disabilities Act, just to start.
With very few exceptions, criminal suspects must have met the mens rea (i.e. mental) element of a crime by acting intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or with criminal negligence at the time they committed a violation of the law. If the ATF does not provide exact measurements, calibers, and other definitions of what makes something an SBR instead of a braced pistol, then it is impossible for anyone to act intentionally, knowingly, recklessly, or with criminal negligence to violate the law. The "We Know it When We See It" standard is not legally sufficient for prosecution.
It’s proposed, but hadn’t been implemented (yet).
If it is, I’m pretty sure I’m going to take advantage of the free tax stamps on several weapons.
End of the world, it ain’t.
What it does go to show, without a doubt, is that the current administration doesn’t give two ‘s about gun owners, and never has...because if they did, they could have cleaned house at the ATF.
