Unfortunately, violence has again struck in a school within the United States of America. The news is full of fast-paced, maddening and alienating headlines even after these last few weeks. Quite literally, you can watch nearly every existing faction fight each other while whole new factions split off and join the fray. Politicians have submitted new Federal legislation to renew the Assault Weapons Ban, raise ages for purchasing of specific classes of firearms, and continue to seek a ban on accessories.
First off. Happy Independence Day, everyone. I hope you are all well this year and wish you well for the remainder of it.
If you have ever thought about getting into the NFA scene, then you already know that suppressors are probably the most rewarding category to get into. The suppressors and short-barrel firearms nearly break even, in regards to the expense of the items alone. Both categories can range between $400 to $1,500+ or so – depending on the manufacturing quality. This is before you pay the $200 registry tax, paid in full upon submitting the appropriate forms, to the ATF. I am here to share some things that I have learned from owning suppressors and what I’ve learned from others.
The recent NRA-ILA Leadership Forum was rather underwhelming. The opportunity was given to America, by Americans during the election, to start fresh and start tearing down the old firearms controls. These controls are set forth in Federal law, presidential sanctions on foreign countries, and in BATFE determinations. The United States firearms community has always been divided, just other social issues divides us, but there is hope that the division would be set aside for unity.
In the wake of the latest firearms control laws implemented in California this past month, you’ll see a large number of pro-firearms proponents bailing out of the state within the final months of the year. Some are fighting “Gunmageddon” by petition and by conceptual design, I should add. However, there are other problems with the state of California, and it’s not just California, but most of the rest of our favorite anti-firearms states. The economies in the states of California, New York and New Jersey are horrendous, to say the least. This is driving many of the anti-firearms proponents out of those states as well. And, with them comes their unconstitutional mindsets and votes.
