    Get this! The ATF is currently arguing in court that a "silencer" is not subject to a recent Supreme Court ruling because they claim a "silencer" is not technically a "firearm", even though if a "silencer" is not classified as a "firearm", it would not fall under the jurisdiction of the ATF in the first place! You can't make this stuff up!
    .




    I personally think the ATF should just be a convenience store.

    Then a 2a lawyer needs to straighten it out because suppressors aren't silencers.

    The ATF is in a corner. They can't regulate suppressors unless they define them as firearms and now they are arguing suppressors are NOT firearms so they can claim Bruen does not apply. I don't see how the ATF could possible win this one. I guess we will see.

    Definitely sounds like the ATF painted themselves into a corner. Hopefully this double standard will fall in the 2A favor through court appeals.……

    Thank God for the state of Texas in fighting the hypocrisy of the elites.

    The tax aspect of NFA might survive Text, History, Tradition analysis. However all the transport and related restrictions that have nothing to do with collection of a tax will probably not survive this case.

    I think the whole "It's not a firearm so Bruen doesn't apply" argument is simply frivolous. And it puts them in a tough spot trying to justify the new rules for receiver blanks and jigs. If that blank or jig isn't a firearm, GCA 1968 doesn't apply to it and it therefore falls outside ATFE's ability to regulate it under GCA.

    The fact that Bianchi was GVRed says all that needs to be said about the SCOTUS majority's view 2A jurisprudence and how it applies to firearms parts and accessories.

    This thread is about the suppressor case.

    This video belongs and is posted in the thread about the indicted felon case.
    Re-read the first post.

    This thread is about 2A wins in Texas.

    But, since I am not an admin, I would never presume to tell you how to post.
