Registration leads to . . .

Incompetence, apparently:

NFA database seriously flawed

OIG asked how often there was a discrepancy between the inventory and what the NFRTR said the inventory should be: 46% of inspectors said either “always” or “most of the time.” (Only 5% reported “never”). How often was the discrepancy found in the NFRTR? 44% said always or most of the time, only 6% said “never.” The comments by inspectors were pretty eye-opening:

And these are the guys that enforce stringent reporting requirements on FFLs.

    These are the guys who lost my “please may I take my SBS to my new house in a different state” three times.

    I guess it was good I started the process six months before I was supposed to.

    At my last ATF audit they showed one NFA item more than I actually had. The audit before that, they were three items short. Easily corrected, however. Jack.

    You’re preaching only to the choir here.

    To a Progressive Marxist/authoritarian/wannabe-central-planner, the most incompetent, irrational bureaucracy is vastly preferable to liberty. In many cases the Progressive will love said bureaucracy all the more for its incompetence, irrationality, or even outright criminality, as a form of protest or rebellion– The more it pisses you off and irritates you the better, and so the more incompetent and pathological the better;
    “Hah hah hah! Take THAT, you stinking American pig!”

    Get rid of the database and registry.

    If you want an NFA taxed item, fill out the Form 4, go to the post office, and have them post a $200 misc. printed stamp on it, and hang on to it as a tax record.

    This will avoid the Hughes Amendment, since the new NFA item is not being registered.

    If a criminal gets caught with one, he isn’t guilty of tax evasion, but is still guilty of possessing an NFA item.

    Is anybody really surprised? It’s a bureaucracy…
