    I just read the same article earlier today, and considered posting it. The quoted text is just the first of 3 pages, and does a really good job demonstrating just how ass backwards the ATF is. There are multiple cases of the ATF approving an item, accessory, or weapon for sale, then later rescinding the decision, and leaving unsellable items in a manufacturers warehouse, and potentially illegal guns in consumers hands.

    I see that the ATF will not be outdone by the DEA in the battle for most useless federal agency.

    Well at least their are not two agencies involved... I am still trying to figure out how to import my long guns from Canada... and I have to involve ATF and CBP... took about 5 calls to each agency to figure out how to do it legally... feh.

    They idea is to make it impossible to be 100% compliant with gun making regulations.

    Both of these. They need to turn the NFA enforcement over to the FBI or create a VERY small agency to handle it, and defund the fucking ATF entirely.

    And constitutional carry should be the norm all across the country. CCW should also be allowed (with the same rules across all states/cities) with added benefits for those who are licensed (FA/SBR, etc...) Suppressors should not need additional tax stamps or any other nonsense.

    Any politician attempting to subvert the Bill of Rights should be strung up, forthwith.

    You use to be able to buy them right in the local hardware store before NFA of 1934. With no restrictions.

    There's zero need for states to have extra restrictions on NFA weapons. The federal restrictions are bad enough. Removing or lowering the tax on suppressors, hiring more NFA inspectors, and repealing the Hughes Amendment would be excellent (albeit pipe dreams).

    Imagine all the awesome suppressors that could have been without all the douche cunts fucking up the works. Same with firearms.

    JM Browning didn't have to deal with those fucksticks.

    No shit. I'd love to have a Magpul PDR or FMG, but I doubt either one will ever see production, much less civilian sale.

    Half of these regulations are made to protect the American gunmakers from competition at this point. So fucking corrupt it's disgusting.

    Legally

    Sure he could break multiple laws (including International ones) but he'd be fucked, if he did so.

    What does that have to do with closing down every government agency?
