 I didn't have a whole lot of hope for it anyhow but this really ticks me off. :mad:

Two days after an attacker opened fire on concert goers in Las Vegas, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc) announced he was shelving legislation to deregulate suppressors.

If everyone has the cool toys, they aren't that cool anymore.  Gotta find the bright side.

This was never going to happen anyway.  Too much money to be lost.

I didn't see much chance of it going any place to begin with since McConnell is not moving on any bills being sent to the Senate. The house has over 200 bills to send to the Senate and they get ignored by the Senate........................:wall:

I have several stamps pending, as I knew this would never go through.  The people who were waiting for it to be passed could just about be approved by now had they filed when HPA first came around.

If we are being honest this never really had a chance of passing. If it did, this would have already been pushed through.

Hmmm.  It’s almost like the GOP doesn’t care much about guns either.  

We’ve seen it here in Tennessee despite a supermajority.  I don’t know why we’d expect much different in Washington.

Y’all know my position on this.  When they finally come for the guns, it will be because the GOP blessed it.  

No politician is in favor of an empowered people.

Is anyone really suprised? When has the federal government ever repealed or relaxed a law concerning firearms and accessories?  BTW, you can't argue the '94 "assault weapons ban" as it was only a temporary law that was not renewed.  ;)

If the legislation had any chance at all of passing that chance went away with the events in Vegas.  I agree that the Repocrats are no more on our side than the Dempublicans but in a parallel universe where the GOP really is on the side of gun owners this would still probably be the best move.  Better to shelve it for now - when it has no hope of passing - and possibly bring it back around later than to open the floor to the mewling and haranguing from the antis using Vegas for their own political purposes.

      Being thrifty, I have been looking at different ways to make my more functional.
      I may have stumbled on to a solution using and AK brace. I'll need to do some more measuring and research, but here's what I have:
      1. Remove buttstock and destroy
      2. Extend legs of non functional stock and lock permanently.
      3. Attach stabilizing brace to legs of stock.
      Or, totally remove stock and see if I can attack a hinged type. More research and measuring needed.
      Thoughts, opinions, advice?

      An unnamed member here and myself are conversing as to whether or not this would be legal. He wants to purchase a "RONI" and install his Glock to make it essentially a Glock carbine. The product in question is here:
      https://usa.caagearup.com/roni-m4-pistol-carbine-conversion
      I argue that it wouldn't be legal without a tax stamp. He argues that it wouldn't be an SBR because of the following in bold:
      An SBR is legally defined as a rifle with a barrel shorter than 16 inches, or an overall length of less than 26 inches. Pursuing that route requires registering the rifle as a Title II weapon (often referred to as an NFA weapon) under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and paying an excise tax.
      But even then, if that were the case, the catalog for this product lists it as 62 cm, or 24.4 inches. So even in that regard, when closed/retracted, the overall length is less than 26 inches.
      Some of the RONI kits advertise as "NO NFA REQUIREMENTS". However, the "RONI_SBS" (which appears to simply be one of their standard RONI kits + a " Skeleton Style ButtStock, or SBS), does not advertise as being "NO NFA REQUIREMENTS".

      Anyone should be able to click the above image to bring it up full-size.
      Thoughts anyone?

      In about 2 weeks, I will be starting the process to convert my PPS-43c into a SBR.
      Why? Because without a stock, I can't really enjoy and use the firearm for effective legal and sporting use.
      In it's current config, it should be stamped, "not particularly dangerous to target, know what's beyond."
      I  am pretty sure I am understanding the pros and cons of individual vs. trust. The extra $200 should make it easier to transfer when I kick.
      Leaning towards a trust, any Knox area attorney recommendations from the posse?
      Please PM me if you prefer some additional level of privacy.
      Thanks!
