Re: Question about selective fire components
G. Gordon Liddy. For those of you who may not know, rolling up 40 years ago, the sitting President wished to be re-elected. An organization was started - CREEP (the Committee to RE Elect the President). They did some illegal stuff and got caught. Someone had to go to jail, and Liddy was one of the few that did.
Anyway, on his radio show, he commented that HE does not own any guns, since he is a convicted felon. His wife, however, has an extensive gun collection, many of which are stored on his side of the bedroom.
There was a feller out in Arizona (I believe) who was making 50BMG rifle receivers, in 80% condition, and selling them with detailed instructions on how to complete them. Since they were 80% receivers, they were NOT guns, they were NOT serial numbered, records did NOT have to be kept. ATF did not like this. He was a convicted felon, but since these were NOT guns, he could make them. ATF raided the house and found a Winchester 94 in the closet. Ex-con with a gun - BOOM - jail. His argument that it was his wife's gun did not hold up. This makes me wonder about Liddy's statement.
Guy I know used to have a gun shop. One of his employees had a fight with her ex-husband, and he narked her to ATF. Seems she was an ex-con. She didn't handle the guns - she was the bookkeeper - but she worked at a gun shop. He had to fire her.
These three things tell me that ATF rules make no flippin' sense, whatsoever.
