    BATFE Demand Letters for reporting single .50 cal rifles are next

    Truth About Guns reports single .50 Cal rifles are next up on the BATFE demand letter list.

    Meanwhile, our source within the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (and Really Big Fires) tells us that if the agency’s controversial multiple rifle registration “pilot program” becomes “normalized,” they’ll craft a demand letter to dealers requiring notification for single sales of .50 caliber rifles

    The ATF is out of hand. Wish I had the cash to buy one.

    IMO uninfringed private sales must be protected at all costs.

    But at least the POTUS isn't passing any "anti-gun" laws, right?

    Hope and change...

    But he IS appointing people who will do the dirty work for him, left and right.

    We should all be HOPING that they don't CHANGE the USA into the new INGSOC...

    "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it..............The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." --- Joseph Goebbels, German Minister of Propaganda, 1933-1945

    "What can government do about conspiracy theories? Among the things it can do, what should it do? We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing. (2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories. (3) Government might itself engage in counterspeech, marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories. (4) Government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech. (5) Government might engage in informal communication with such parties, encouraging them to help. Each instrument has a distinctive set of potential effects, or costs and benefits, and each will have a place under imaginable conditions. However, our main policy idea is that government should engage in cognitive infiltration of the groups that produce conspiracy theories, which involves a mix of (3), (4) and (5)."--Cass Sunstein, "Conspiracy Theories", 2008
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."
    --Barry Goldwater, 1964

    The POTUS won't have to pass any "anti-gun" laws as long as he has a Congress that doesn't mind being made irrelevant by bureaucrats writing new ADMINISTRATIVE REGULATIONS that have the effect of law.

    Think about last year the Congress would not pass "cap and trade" legislation (referred to by many as cap and tax) so the EPA is now just administratively regulating CO2 as a negative "greenhouse gas" contributing to so called global warming.... Just a little observation, when plants are faced with a high CO2 concentration THEY GROW FASTER AND BIGGER and convert the CO2 into O2 in the process.

    The EPA waited until just a few days ago to make the announcement of this "CHANGE" and it will be effective in TEXAS sometime THIS MONTH!

    Actually 100% recievers would not be subject to the order, only rifles. Take off the shoulder stock and the rifle is a reciever. No reporting requirement for recievers. The only drawback is the reciever cannot be sold to 18-20 year olds.

    Rather makes me wonder why less than 4,000 people showed up to the second amendment march.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    I have often thought about attending the "marches" for different causes.

    But they are ALWAYS held on weekends, holidays, or when lawmakers are not in session.

    I figure it's pretty stupid and non-productive to protest to a bunch of people who aren't there to see or hear.
    What part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" is so hard to understand ???


    James: Ain't this a little showy, Pa? I mean with the guns out an' all?

    Big Jake: James, don't be fooled. They all know what's in this box, and they all want it. what we're doin' with this audacious DISplay is tellin' 'em they can't have it. Who knows, we may be savin' some poor miscreant soul's life this way.
