    New shotgun import reg's open for a look...

    It's here... Read it and cringe... They seem to want or at least accepting comments before they implement this...
    Breaking News for The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This information has recently been updated, and is now available.
    Most of the below PDF is bah bah bah, we did x in 89, y in 93 and z in 98 so this must be ok for us to do... Their Conclusion: 'The purpose of section 925(d)(3) is to provide a limited exception to the general prohibition on the importation of firearms without placing “any undue or unnecessary Federal restrictions or burdens on law-abiding citizens with respect to the acquisition, possession, or use of firearms….” Our determinations will in no way preclude the importation of true sporting shotguns.' IF you really believe this, I have some beach front property for sale in AZ... Oh found it... Ban the importing of any shotgun with even ONE of the below features...
    (1) Folding, telescoping or collapsible stock.
    (2) Bayonet Lug. (Do any come with this "evil" feature??)
    (3) Flash Suppressor. (Any shotguns have these?)
    (4) Magazine over 5 rounds, or a Drum Magazine. (None as imported that I know of...)
    (5) Grenade Launcher Mount. (are there any??)
    (6) Integrated Rail Systems. (One TOP rail is ok, no more...)
    (7) Light Enhancing Devices.
    (8) Excessive Weight. (What the heck is this???)
    (9) Excessive Bulk. (Ditto above...)
    (10) Forward Pistol Grip or Other Protruding Part Designed or Used for Gripping the Shotgun with the Shooter’s Extended Hand.
    Therefore, it is the recommendation of the working group that shotguns with any of the characteristics or features listed above not be authorized for importation...

    Don't think of it as `gun control', think of it as `victim disarmament'.

    WI DA Gerald R. Fox:
    "These so-called 'public safety' laws only put decent law-abiding citizens at a dangerous disadvantage when it comes to their personal safety, and I for one am glad that this decades-long era of defective thinking on gun issues is over..."

    Remember: Don't make old People mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.
