Again, you could argue that everyone at the range is in illegal possession of a firearm unless they can produce evidence that they are not...
You could make that argument, but you would have no probable cause for an arrest...
Possession of an NFA item is probable cause for an arrest, just as it would be if a cop saw someone who appeared to be underage in possession of alcohol. Should you just be able to tell the officer: "you have to show proof that I'm underage before you can arrest me!" No, you shouldn't... He will arrest you for underage possession unless you can prove to him (with an ID) that you are over 21... That's how it is, and that's how it should be... Its not a police state. Its simply giving law enforcement the ability to enforce laws written by your elected representatives. You don't like the laws, get them changed. But don't handicap the ability of law enforcement to do its job... That's just silly...
