NFA laws are dumb, part whatever

The ATF charged a man, who had a pistol brace on his rifle, for possessing a short barreled rifle. The man was following their ruling.

    “… who had a pistol brace on his rifle…”

    Pretty sure it was a PISTOL AR, not a rifle, from what I read.

    This is why I don’t buy into a lot of these gadgets that dance on the line of legality. All it takes is the ATF suddenly changing their mind, or some prosecutor looking to make headlines, and you get to have all the fun of paying out the nose to defend yourself while a federal prosecutor rakes you over the coals.

    The problem with the current interpretation is that it’s an “intent” thing.

    If you are thinking thoughts about shouldering in your heart when you put the pistol brace on, then you are making an SBR. But if you only have pure thoughts about using it as a brace and it later on accidentally contacts your shoulder, you’re good to go.

    It’s tap-dancing on a land mine.
