The Justice Department will be given 60 days to issue a separate rule on stabilizing braces, which can turn a pistol into a more accurate weapon that fires like a rifle. Sixty days will also be provided for the DOJ to develop model “red flag” legislation that would allow friends and family members to identify an individual as a potential danger, thereby temporarily preventing the person from accessing a firearm.
I think we will find friends that we didn’t even know we had.
1: it’s already been determined that if a brace is designed as an arm brace, how the end user actually uses it is irrelevant. In addition. Pistols are legal, rifles are legal, what’s the point in regulating something that’s between the two?
2: red flag laws are prior restraint and will probably be overturned.
The number of family members, acquaintances and co workers ratting out Capitol insurrections is a pretty good indicator of the type of people who get people close to them ratting them out are. The most I saw was 7 different family members ratting out an insurrectionist but it was amazingly common.
So I guess if someone is going to be a gun fetishist then either keep it a secret or don’t be a giant ■■■■■■■ to everybody to the point they can’t wait to turn you into the Feds.
How many people here think that buying a gun from a dealer means the government can look up what guns I own or even knows that I own any at all?
The answer is no. All filling out the form at a dealer means is that if the police recover a gun, they can ask the manufacturer which distributor they sold that serial number to, then they can ask the distributor what shop they sold that number to, then they can ask the shop who purchased the gun. Then if the original purchaser of the gun sold it, the trail is dead.
It’s only useful if they have the weapon in evidence, and then only if the original purchaser didn’t sell it to someone.
