Well, the ATF is at it again.
Are you surprised?
No, not really. Just getting the word out
Its like watching a pile up on an iced over freeway. After a while the only surprise is the color of the car that is next.
The BATFE just wants their $200 tax
I'm surprised that it is still $200. In 1934 when the NFA went into effect, the Maxim 'Silencer' cost around $5. The $200 was basically the same cost as a used car back then, and designed to deter folks from acquiring SBR's, suppressors, etc. because the legal means of ownership was just so ridiculously expensive. Obviously $200 today is manageable for most, and it's become a money grab more than a deterrent. I wouldn't be surprised to see legislation come forward to raise the tax stamp into the $1000's. I remember there was a house bill in 2016 or 2017 that tried to raise it to $500, but nothing ever came of it (thankfully).
After the NFA act of 1934, Maxim had to get out of the firearms business and sold his 'silencers' for lawn mowers, cars, etc. He was already in those markets, but just couldn't sell any for the gun market any longer. What a shame. His father made the first successful machine gun, then the son invents the gun suppressor, and subsequently the car muffler, etc. Cool family history.
One of the most interesting things I learned about Hiram Maxim (Sr.) was why he invented the machine gun. He stated that they were “terrible automatic engines of war” and suggested their mere existence might convince world leaders to settle conflicts diplomatically.
Saw somewhere that they think it is the SB Tactical SBA3.
I said it about the bump stocks, and I'll say it about the braces....they are not constitutionally protected. Be prepared to buy a legal stock and pay the $$ for a stamp with those "pistols".
What about stocks in general? Are they protected? Handguards? Are they protected? We could go down a whole laundry list of parts of a gun that aren’t protected. If you want to buy that reasoning, they could outlaw all kinds of parts to guns and make any functioning gun almost useless because any given part that isn’t part that doesn’t render it inoperable would be fair game.
