An MDS member who is from VA had a 5320.20 denied by BATFE even though he possessed the <29" SBR prior to 10-1-13. That would seem to say that BATFE doesn't make a distinction on dates even though the MD statute allows them if possessed prior to 10-1-13.

The statutes also says a properly registered SBR is legal in MD. So I wonder why BATFE is denying transport of an NFA item into MD when the MD statutes clearly say it's legal to possess if it was possessed before 10-1-13.

Yeah, I think that one is a case of ATF saying "we don't want any part of this mess" and just making their own job easier by denying all of them.

Yes, but only if you possessed it prior to 10/1/13.

Like I said above, I think it's an instance of ATF not wanting to get in to this particular mess. It's a lot like they are with the current bumpstock thing - they just flat out go "nope, we want no part of that," and that's that.

I think you're right. I wonder if the NFA folks in Martinsburg shake their heads at the amount of stupid coming out of Annapolis.

I imagine them doing a collective facepalm and a "not this shit again."
