BATFE should be a convenience store


I don’t know what we’d put for the B, but the rest should be available no problem:

For example, if I want the “carbine” version, I have to pay an additional $200 and wait 6 months to a year for the Form 1 to clear. If I get the “stabilizer”, I can’t legally shoulder it. There are a number of YT videos about that, but it costs about $30 less from CAA than the Micro Roni PLUS the tax. So, $225 v $395.

Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives should be a convenience store, not a government agency. With President Trump, it may end up that way. He’s a hardcore pro-2A sort, it would seem. And then there’s:

    I’ve always admired the simple, plain language of the Bill of Rights. The first 10 amendments are a basic and fundamental statement of inalienable rights.

    Take the 1st Amendment: “Congress shall make no law….” How could you possibly mistake the meaning? The government is specifically barred from making any law restricting or promoting religion, freedom of the press or freedom of speech.

    The 2nd Amendment is almost as direct, being complicated only the its’ preamble that gives the reason for its’ existence: “A well regulated militia being necessary….” However, the conclusion of the 2nd Amendment is still very simple and direct; “…shall not be infringed.” Four simple words that are an absolute command.

    Then there are the 9th and 10th Amendment which close the door to end runs around either the Constitution or any of the first 8 Amendments.

    The only possible exceptions to any of it, regard people who have had their civil rights removed or restricted because they were convicted of certain crimes in a court of law.

    Given the basic and absolutist nature of the Bill of Rights, I have never truly understood how any restrictions on firearms or their legal use by ordinary citizens, have ever been upheld by any court, state or federal.

    That was well spoken/written. My thoughts exactly. I can see a valid reason for something on the order of the 4473, but only to verify you are a legal citizen with no reason why NOT to sell you a gun. Even then, it is a potential restriction “they” are forbidden to do.
