No one has a problem admitting that the SigBrace did a good job of “loop-holing” the SBR law. Now whether or not that was the company’s intent is irrelevant at this point. Some do not believe in the SigBrace with the belief that the SBR law is ridiculous itself, which I agree with too. Whoever thinks that by putting a tax on a rifle because of barrel length and stock, somehow keeps the citizens safer, does not have the citizen’s best interest in mind. This is simply a tax to create revenue from nothing, using tyranny as the muscle behind it.
The most dangerous aspect of this whole debate that no one is talking about is the fact that the government is now telling us how we are “allowed” to hold our weapons. And threatening a massive fine and hefty felony charge if violated. Here’s a few lines from the letter that Max M. Kingery of the ATF wrote: “The pistol stabilizing brace was neither “designed” nor approved to be used as a shoulder stock,
and therefore use as a shoulder stock constitutes a “redesign” of the device because a possessor
has changed the very function of the item. Any individual letters stating otherwise are contrary
to the plain language of the NFA, misapply Federal law, and are hereby revoked.
Any person who intends to use a handgun stabilizing brace as a shoulder stock on a pistol
(having a rifled barrel under 16 inches in length or a smooth bore firearm with a barrel under 18
inches in length) must first file an ATF Form 1 and pay the applicable tax because the resulting
firearm will be subject to all provisions of the NFA”.
This is setting a very dangerous precedent if the the Feds can regulate how you hold a weapon based on a letter that was never seen on the floor to be voted on. And what’s more dangerous is that everyone you talk to, though they don’t agree with the statement made by Mr. Kingery, they go along with it and accept this as law.
We The People are the rightful owners of this nation. Lets start acting like it.
