    Possibly. I prefer the glass is half full approach. If you read the memo you’ll see that he told the DOJ to keep doing what they’re doing (ATF rulemaking process) to determine if bump stocks should be classified differently.
  2. Is the polygraph unlimited in scope? How hard can that or a checkride be? Is the issue the quality of applicants or is the screening really that stringent?

    Nah, not super secure. But a step better than the glove box or just stashing it under the seat. Thanks for your insight. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Console+vault

    Anyone with experience and/or recommendations on something like the console vault?
  5. Taxes, the Deficit/Debt, and the Fiscal Cliff

    I remember discussions about that but I don’t remember if it happened or not. This time it’s shut down on the 20th. I’ll be surprised if it’s still shut down on the 30th (pay day).
  6. Any words of advice for dealing with the claims adjusters after the PCS? Every time I email her the auto reply is “thanks for your correspondence. We will reply within 30 days.” Then I remind her after 30 days that she owes me an answer. It’s been 17 months since my PCS. Time to give up on full replacement value and transfer my claim to the military?
  7. The new airline thread

    That checks. Docs also have a 4 year ADSC for having the AF pay for med school....sometimes I think we chose poorly
  8. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    What are you talking about Smalls? You sure as hell can own your own fighter. I don’t know anyone who owns Mk 82s but in theory they wouldn’t be any different than claymores which are legal to own under NFA. You must register and pay your $200 tax stamp to register each one as a destructive device. Your second paragraph is the point-how the do people who talk about “the shoulder thing that goes up” write a law that doesn’t end up banning belt loops?
  9. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    It’s a novelty sure, but let’s get at the root cause-why is a bump stock a thing? It’s because the Hughes amendment stopped registration of new machine guns. If I could spend $10 on different parts and $200 on a tax stamp to register a machine gun as an NFA item then the bump stock wouldn’t have been invented and every gun capable of this kind of firing rate would be registered within the NFA construct. As it is, gun control (Hughes amendment) artificially limited supply so prices for legal full auto are through the roof. So someone invents the bump stock which the ATF said was legal! Let’s stop pretending that more regulation will achieve the desired effects

    Poor choice of words on my part. The $200 tax stamp is a one time thing. The stamp I was referring to is a postage stamp for mailing the 5320.20 through USPS....what are they, 69 cents these days? While your point is valid, the consequence is insignificant.
  11. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Copy shot. I'll go back to my beer with Hacker and stop attempting to argue constitutional law
  12. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    Invalid comparison because cops have a duty to protect others. I'm pretty sure there's case law saying they don't have to park in front of your house because you think you've been threatened, but my point is that while we have a duty to retreat (depending on state) they do not. You have to take driver's ed before you can get a driver's license. Driving is not a right, but driver's ed is (or at least used to be - no idea on current HS curriculum) taught in schools. Gun ownership is a right. I'd love to see some NRA Eddie the Eagle stuff taught in public schools. You want to do something for the children? Then teach them how to use them safely.
  13. WTF? (**NSFW**)

    I'm from Texas and while I'd love to agree with you with Republicans like this...I don't know what to say other than if you want to ban it for yourself then don't fucking buy it. Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas), a gun owner himself, may be the first Republican in Congress to call for a ban on bump stocks. “I think they should be banned. There’s no reason for a typical gun owner to own anything that converts a semi-automatic to something that behaves like an automatic,” Flores told The Hill in an interview just off the House floor. “Based on the videos I heard and saw, and now that I’ve studied up on what a bump stock is — I didn’t know there was such a thing — there’s no reason for it,” Flores said. “I have no problem from banning myself from owning it.”

    My mistake - didn't mean to post in this thread in addition to the WTF thread where we've been having this discussion. To your bolded comment above - do you have any NFA items? Because I do and that's not how this works. Form 4 used to require CLEO approval for individuals but not for trusts. The requirements changed in July 2016 to require every form 4 to NOTIFY CLEO. 2 key points - now even if a trust owns the item you have to notify and second that individuals no longer require approval, just notification. For PCS you don't file a Form 4, you file a Form 5320.20 to transport NFA items across state lines. The 5320.20 takes 4-6 weeks to get back and costs you a stamp and 10 minutes to fill out. The Form 4 costs you $200 and 6-9 months (really optimistic wait time) to get back. Otherwise I agree with everything you said.
