You are naive beyond belief.
I quote from the NRA release.........
Under-handed insults won't get you very far around here.
And, going from calling some one naive, to using the NRA as your source is ...questionable... at best.
Even as a life member, I take everything form the NRA with a grain of salt, and consider about 50% of it to qualify as dis
information or political BS. The NRA plays politics and omits vital information (even with its members) more than any other political organization I follow.
The BATFE website states that the subject is open for comments. That's all that's important.
The NRA's involvement is ...dubious. Half the time, the ATF only gets the NRA involved because they know that the NRA will compromise and cave on nearly everything, where GOA, IFOA, GOAL, NAGR, and similar groups will not consider any compromise.
