It has been a good few years for the industry. Between the SIG “Arm Brace”, Mossberg Shockwave non-NFA shotguns, and MagPul producing hi-capacity magazines at the cyclic rate, innovation is helping us all beat idiotic government regulation. One of the reasons I like Alex Kincaid, 2nd Amendment lawyer extraordinaire, so much is her stance on these things. She argues that we shouldn’t have to do these things in the first place.
Pretty much every government ban since NFA act of 1934 has been defacto infringement on the poor when you really think about it. The original NFA put a $200 tax stamp on short barrel rifles and suppressors, the equivalent of six months wages for a working class stiff back then. The Hughes Amendment didn’t mean automatic weapons went away, it just meant the price skyrocketed because they could no longer be produced for civilian sale. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have $20,000 for a transferable M16 receiver.
There shouldn’t be different rules for the rich and the poor. It’s not like we are talking about buying Ferrari collections here. This is a base 2nd Amendment issue, and it’s about damn time we started fighting like it.
