Gun News & Laws / Latest from the ATF: No more opinion letters Unless . . .

Latest from the ATF:  No more opinion letters Unless . . .

This is interesting.  Just received from the BATFE.


The BATFE will not render an opinion on the effect of an accessory on a firearm unless that farm is included with the accessory and install them the accessory when it is sent to the batfe. One has to wonder if the fact that the ATF is supposedly about to render some new regulations has something to do with this email that I received today.

The effect that this ruling has on the industry is profound. It greatly increases the cost of bringing new accessories to Market. The accessory manufacturer who is Seeking a determination from the batfe must install the proposed accessory on the firearm that it will be used on and send that combination to the ATF Tech Branch for a determination. This will have a extreme chilling effect own small manufacturers and large manufacturers ability to innovate and bring new products to Market.

It will also stop every Tom Dick and Harry from riding random letters to the ATF asking them if something is legal or not which often has resulted in contradictory opinions.

Discontinuance of Accessory ClassificationsEffective Immediately:

The Firearms Technology Industry Services Branch (FTISB) classifies firearms as defined by the Gun Control Act (GCA) and National Firearms Act (NFA) based on the configuration and the design features of the firearm as submitted by members of the industry.

Effective immediately, any requests for a determination on how an accessory affects the classification of a firearm under the GCA or NFA must include a firearm with the accessory already installed. Except in cases of conditional import determinations, FTISB will not issue a determination on an accessory unless it is attached to the submitted firearm.

If you have previously submitted a sample accessory for classification, FTISB will be returning your sample without classification. FTISB will contact you in the near future with further instructions to facilitate the return of your sample.

Do you mean the head that holds the rifle?

Although I don't count anything out I believe that the proposed legislation, by the time it gets to the floor for a vote, will not look anything like the original. I believe that some type of what the politicos and talking heads call "common sense" gun control measures will be passed. Trump has said the bump stock ban is coming and I believe binary triggers are probably next.
One of my fears is that they will come after manufactured ammo like they did cigarettes. Place enough tax and fees on it until people, like members here, that are into shooting sports will no longer enjoy it because of cost. Sure reloading is an option but some people don't have the space for that.
Washington State seems to be leading the charge right now with their recent classification of all semi auto long guns as "assault rifles" along with banning hi cap magazines. So if you live there I guess your 10/22 is now an assault weapon.
Yup.  It's coming.

requires that all firearms made by private individuals since 1968 be taken to an FFL and have a serial number assigned to them for a fee and more

Good luck enforcing that one.
Here's how it gets enforced. You're hunting with the weapon and a game warden shows up. You're traveling to or from the range and you get pulled over in the police officer checks the weapon. Your wife or someone calls in a domestic violence call and the cops show up in the house and seize your firearms.

After any of the above occurs, you go to federal jail

HR7115.  Bans 80% lowers, gun parts online sales, requires that all firearms made by private individuals since 1968 be taken to an FFL and have a serial number assigned to them for a fee and more

It's time once again.   Call and email your Representatives and Senators!  Get ready for more.  This is simply the first of many threats.

Elections actually do have consequences. With the Democratic sweep of the house, they wasted no time in proposing Draconian anti-second Amendment legislation.

It was introduced by Frank Pallone Jr. Sponsor. Representative for New Jersey's 6th congressional district. Democrat.  No surprise there. 

A lot of my clients and friends tell me that we don't have anything to worry about because we hold the Senate and President Trump sits in the White House.

I constantly have to remind them that it doesn't take too many turncoat Republicans to flip and pass a bill like this and put it on the president's desk. We should  all remember that President Trump supported the 1994 and later the 2004 assault weapons ban and Democratic gun control not so many years ago.

I have been listening to people in the gun community tell me for years not to worry because the Democrats and Anti-2A groups are not "coming for your guns". These statements and beliefs are factualky i correct because the Democrats and the anti-second amendment groups have come out and plainly said that their goal is the confiscation of all civilian owned firearms.

Take the time to actually read this proposed bill. It is far reaching.   It would basically gut the entire firearms industry. Most people are very tempted to say that it's not as bad as we are making it out. That it doesn't really ban all that stuff. Well let's look at what this bill actually does.

This bill bans, either directly or by implication the following:
1.  Machine gun parts kit
2.  Assault weapons parts kit
3.  The marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications,
4.  Prohibition of advertising do-it-yourself assault weapons.
5.   Requires homemade firearms made after 1968 to have serial numbers,
Other items banned due to the briad definitions in this bill:
A.  Triggers, hammers,
B.  bolt carriers,
C.  springs,
D.  stocks,
E.  bolts,
F.  barrels,
G.  rails
H.  Muzzle brakes and flash hiders
I.  Magazines
J. 80% lowers and frames
K.  3D printed firearms and parts

"the term assault weapon parts kit means any part or combination of parts designed and intended to enable a consumer who possesses all such necessary parts to assemble a semiautomatic assault weapon;

"the term machinegun parts kitmeans any part or combination of parts designed and intended to enable a consumer who possesses all such necessary parts to assemble a machinegun or convert a firearm into a machinegun;"

Read and ponder the two definitions above.  Let that sink in.  Then try and convince yourself that everything, every part, that goes into building a semi-automatic rifle pistol or shotgun would not be affected by this bill.

The ban on Advertising through any media will be enforced by the Enforcement by the Federal Trade Commission.  So the Liberals are bringing in yet another Federal agency to regulate Firearms. Think about the mess that the batfe has made of firearms regulation.

If a firearm was made at home after 1968, it will have to be taken to a local FFL and given a serial number. Think about that. Everyone who has Hilton 80% lower, or made something from scratch, will have to go pay an FFL to register that and give it a serial number.

Democrats continue to push the “assault weapon” narrative. The Modern Semi-automatic sporting rifle and other semi automatic firearms are not assault weapons.

The use of the term Assault weapon" Is a simple, yet powerful emotional plea.   It's effective in deceiving people.  Remember, we have let the Democrats take over the language of the Second Amendment and they use their own words to scare moderates into thinking that guns are bad. That is why we NEVER, as gun owners and second amendment supporters, use the word assault weapon unless we're talking about a true machine gun.

Once again, the anti 2a Democrats are testing the waters and testing our resolve as gun owners and 2nd Amendment supporters.

They want to see if our Resistance to anti-second Amendment legislation has wavered after all these years.

Make sure that you call your congressman and your rivers and let them know that we are aware of what the Democrats are trying to do and that we oppose it and will remember their choices at the next election cycle.

The title of the bill:

"To prohibit the sale, acquisition, distribution in commerce, or import into the United States of certain firearm receiver castings or blanks, assault weapon parts kits, and machinegun parts kits and the marketing or advertising of such castings or blanks and kits on any medium of electronic communications, to require homemade firearms to have serial numbers, and for other purposes."
