Reports of AR/AK pistols being reclassified as NFA items

I seem to remember this coming up over a decade ago but, it is being reported that Obama has resurrected an attempt to reclassify things like AR/AK pattern pistols as NFA items. On closer examination this is indeed a resurrection of a proposed rule change that was dropped in 2005. A new “notice of proposed rule making” (NPRM) date has been added to the original document with a date of January 2016.

So it seems an old fight is about to get restarted. It has been widely reported the Department of Justice was going to move forward with new rules to enact gun control without Congressional approval. This appears to be just one effort to move in that direction. A new fight appears to be brewing.

  1. Hey Gary,
    It would be nice if you could get the rest of the US and the world for that matter to drop the blackrifleaphobia. Maybe if we could convince the liberals that they are being racist because they don’t like “black” guns and teach it to the children in schools they would grow up calling their mommies and daddies who don’t think like their teachers in school the racists generation who don’t like black guns. Don’t like black guns. Don’t like black guns… over and over again. You must be a racist if you don’t like black guns. Racist, racist, racist you are a freedom hater, freedom hater, over and over again until we have raised a generation of counter liberals.
