and its true. the reason gun laws came about in this country ( the 1934 National firearms act) was because of crime due to the governments own incompetence at stoping gangs who where thriving under the governments own opressive anti american prohibition of alcohol. when prohibition was repealed the government needed to pretend to do something. so they made the 1934 NFA act to restrict machine guns, sawn off shotguns, silencers, destructive devices, and Any other weapons (AOW). the original draft of the NFA banned pistols. the ban on pistols was the reason "sawn offs" are restricted to this day. the hope was that restricting modifications to a guns size would stop people from making fuax pistols out of carbines and rifles. the sawn off laws stayed, but the pistol laws didnt. this essentialy means the sawn off laws are an answer, to a question no one asked.
well now you have a hokey act that is gunna tax people to own an object. ( 200$ to make a NFA item., 5 $ to transfer AOW, or 200$ for machine guns, silencers, SBS, and SBR's, DD's) so you have a restrictive law, and you have a bunch of out of work prohibition agents.... i know lets make a tax collection agency, THE ATF!
the ATF was , and is a tax agency under the treasury dept. the differance is now, instead of asking nicely for you to pay your tax. they kick in your door at 3 am, throw concussion grenades in your bed room and shoot your dog. ( this is true for most paramilitary police forces aswell)
incase you havnt noticed, i despise the BATFE (buera of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives) as they are now called.
wow i bet i sound right wing whack job, but inm actualy just a Libertarian now adays
