Actually it isn't the same. Yes you can own the pipe BUT using it is a
federal offense if the vehicle came with a converter.
It IS a federal offense to simply OWN the parts that make a full auto
firearm, UNLESS you have a class 3 FFL and have the paperwork as well,
then you can own the full auto firearm itself.
The ONLY part of the full auto M-16 that is controlled and is considered
to BE the full auto part is the auto sear itself.
Well, yes, and no. Remember that the ATF can pretty much make up the rules
as they go. Case in point is US v. Olofson, where the defendant was
convicted of illegal transfer of a machine gun - said "machine gun"
consisting of an AR-15 with an M16 hammer, trigger, disconnector, and
selector - according to the ATF. No auto sear, but still a machine gun
because they got it to hammer-follow.
No, you don't need to be a SOT (no such thing as a class 3 FFL) to own a
full-auto firearm. You simply have to complete an ATF Form 4, get a
background check, and pay your $200 tax. Of course, you have to live in a
state that allows such possession, as well.
TRUE, I think it comes down to what the particular agent "feels the law
means" at any given moment.
Most certainly is a class three FFL, Its a Title 1 tag with a Class
three tax stamp. Allows the holder to sell NFA restricted firearms. AKA
Automatic Weapons and other restricted sales toys.
Makes ownership of any of the fun stuff MUCH easier, but it isn't cheap!!!
Well, this is mostly semantics, but the "Class 1, Class 2, Class 3" are
classes of Special Occupational Taxpayer (SOT) status. This is completely
SEPARATE from a Federal Firearms License. To deal in Title 2 firearms, one
must be a Class 3 SOT, as well as possess a Type 1 FFL - as Title 2 firearms
(regulated by NFA '34) are also covered by regulations of Title 1 firearms
(GCA '68). Class 3 SOT's can possess NFA items without paying the tax, but
require an 01 FFL to transfer (sell) them.
Right. That rifle went full auto several times before he got arrested.
The other thing to look at is if you own an ar or the parts to make
one, the batf will assume that if you also own the full auto sear you
will put the pieces together to make the ar full auto. Simple
possesion of the full auto sear is not good unless you have the
paperwork for it.
If someone ever even tried to give me an auto sear I'd turn and
BK, Tom and ole Roy....
I gave ya'll a couple of days to play with this and nothing....not a
damned thing. Senility and old age setting in????
You just can't be pleased. Ya bitch 'cause you think you get picked on. Then
when folks let a golden opertunity go by ya bitch anyway.
Nobody made a remark about regarding your daughter out shooting your fat
Jodi didn't mention cookies or the fact that you'll never see any.
Nobody said anything about you being tied up with "the machine"
Your neighbor and new "best friend" sno fool wasn't tied to you. Although
you've probably tied each other up.
There was no cheap shot about WC or sliders. Your gormet food
There was no mention about a full auto and a fat guy in a pink rabbit suit.
Hell nobody said a thing about carrots!
Still ya bitch and moan. I don't get it. Must be a Budd rule.
Wrong, you can have the parts, even order them online except for the
sear/receiver. Using it is where the trouble lies. Kinda similar to owning a
piece of pipe or a plain washer but if you call it a silencer part then it
Your state would have to have inspections!
I ran without a cat on a Ford pick up for about 10 years. It was missing
when I bought it, and I never had one put on. It went through a couple
muffler shops the mentioned it was missing and "needed" to be put on, and I
just always told them I would think about it. We do not have vehicle
inspections here in ND, and I think Nate is pretty safe on MT also.
