A few months ago the ATF announced its proposed rule changes on firearm frames and receivers, the rule change directly affects so-called “ghost guns.” The proposed rule change would effectively ban all unserialized firearms and force Americans to destroy them, turn them in, or get them serialized.
Like with all proposed rule changes from the ATF, we got a massive comment period where Americans can express their concerns about the coming changes. These comments are allegedly there to help the ATF decide if they will move forward with the rule change or not, but we have a sneaking suspicion they don’t really care what you think. The value from the comments these days comes from their being used as ammo in court cases and efforts by big 2A groups.
This time around we had a major success in respect to these comments, over 300k comments were left by Americans in respect to these rule changes. Remember, according to the mainstream media, only radical members of society want the rules to stay the same as they have been.
If the ATF decides to proceed with the new rule, which they likely will, they will likely be sued instantly by a group of manufacturers and 2A lobbying groups. After these lawsuits, the rules might be stripped, or they might stick around. We will be sure to update you on any future ongoing related to this rule.
For today, any American in this fight can rest as it has moved out of their control. The 2A community has done a great job this time around but now things have moved up a level and the big organizations are going to step in and do their part.
