The 1934 N.F.A. ...

Short barreled rifles and shotguns should be struck from the 1934 N.F.A.

The restrictions placed on short barreled firearms ban some highly useful arms that have just as many legit uses as their perfectly legal title-1 counterparts.

It's the same action type (Break,bolt,lever,pump,and semi-auto actions) using the same caliber and gauge ammunition.

Why should easier to use and just as effective weapons be kept out of the hands of the law abiding public?

1. Case in point....

 

The taurus Judge and Smith&Wesson Governor revolvers (I bought a governor because it shares ammo with my .410 shotgun)

They both have a .45 caliber rifled barrel,and both can shoot shotgun shells both are legal (Except for a few restrictive states)

Blood isn't running in the streets because these guns are being bought,so why not remove the short barreled rifle and shotguns from the N.F.A. list?

2. No objection but I have more important concerns like interstate acceptance of CCW permits.

Can be better handeled through constitutional carry laws,from state to state.

Folks would still need to apply for a C.C.W. from their state (for purposes of travel to another state,but such would be seen as a drivers license).

The reason I feel that SBR/SBS restrictions should be removed is because in the original context of the N.F.A. handguns were going to be banned,but that didn't happen so,again why should SBR/SBS restrictions still be in place?

4. What I always thought was stupid was

a single shot .22 rifle with a 15 inch barrel or a pistol with a shoulder stock being as tightly regulated as a machine gun. That is not
"common sense" gun control to me.

5. Friend...

 

I can say that we agree on that.

I mean what is the real meaning of putting something like the Marble's Game Getter on the same list as a browning 1919?

7. Well....

 

Seeing as how the Mares Leg is made as a title-1 item now,it doesn't really have the same meaning as an "N.F.A." firearm

To make said pistol useful instead of just a novelty,would involve turning it into an "N.F.A." firearm (long enough stock to allow the user a better aim=SBR)



Unless the pictured weapons were made from title-1 Rifles,then yes they are on N.F.A. list.

*See how messed up that is?*
