Gun Control 2021 (IV) - Biden, BATFE, & Braces

Postby The Chuck » Mon Sep 16, 2019 2:15 pm

Poll information:

In American, a pistol brace is a device that goes where a stock would normally go on an AR-15, AK platform, or numerous other weapons typically classified as a rifle by the BATFE. When you have a brace instead of a stock, the firearm is not a rifle but rather is classified as a pistol. This allows individuals to put barrels on firearms platforms that are below 16 inches in length without requiring additional federal paperwork and an expensive 200 dollar tax stamp to otherwise make a "Short Barrel Rifle". Yesterday the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, & Explosives) said that 23 braces produced by a company are now to be considered "shouldering devices" and could result in lawful citizens becoming felons with weapons charges if their shouldering devices are not swapped out for other braces. What say you NSG? Are braces a yay or a nay?

Top firearm is a pistol (look at the rear of the firearm) and the bottom is a rifle under Govt. definitions.

Part I, Part II, Part III

Original Post & Thread by Conservative Morality:


Been gone from NSG recovering from a little accident (nothing major) so I thought I'd return to the forums with a true classic - gun control.

I speak on this issue as an American, and thus I necessarily refer back to the 2nd Amendment here. The 2nd Amendment is culturally important - practically, less so. In an age of effective nonlethal self-defense weapons, 'self-defense' rings somewhat hollow as a justification; in an age of the MIC, 'combat readiness' for the civilian population doubly so; and anyone who thinks that their militia is going to resist the tyranny of the Feds with small arms is loony enough that they probably shouldn't own any guns. One must remember that even in the American Revolutionary War it was not private firearms which provided the majority of the firepower of American forces; such firearm ownership was primarily the province of skirmishers and some irregulars.

I could care less, to be honest, about long guns. We aren't the Wild West. We aren't some wartorn third-world country. Even fully automatic long guns don't concern me too much. Our problems with firearms are overwhelmingly concerned with the tracking of individuals who misuse them, not so much the disarmament of individuals with firearms. We don't live in a country where militias and gangs can resist the force of the State without using the institutions of the State (judicial process, presumption of innocence, civil rights).

Registration and tracking of firearms is all-important, as is licensing for individuals. I'm not sure that there are many circumstances I would support a full ban on a person's right to own firearms, but restricting ownership of certain firearms for certain individuals is probably useful. Acquiring a license to own handguns in particular, I think, is a good idea. Criminal activity is overwhelmingly reliant on concealment of weaponry.

I do think a limitation on different 'classes' of weapons is useful - but the current definitions of 'assault' weapons are asinine and borderline useless. Restrictions on semiautomatic long guns should be based primarily on ease of concealment - 'tactical' attachments, bayonet lugs, that shit doesn't matter. Collapsing stocks and shortened barrels and extended magazine capacity is more important, and even then I don't believe in a complete ban on such things.

Private and government property, naturally, can restrict what comes onto their property. Your rights end where another's begin. If the city doesn't want your glock in the local social services department, leave it at home and quitcher bitchin'.

Silencers is a question I struggle with. Any policy on silencers has to be Federal, not piecemeal state-by-state, but... on one hand, the use of silencers to lessen hearing loss and damage is perfectly legitimate and silencers don't work like Hollywood 'plink plink' kind of bullshit. It turns a roar into a bark. It's not exactly a sneaky-beaky murder weapon. On the other hand, turning a roar into a bark is sometimes enough combined with background ambiance to conceal the firing of a gun in circumstances where a gun should not be fired, which is... problematic.

Open carry is an issue that I think should mostly be regulated by the individual states, with some exceptions. There is no fucking reason you need to open carry a fully automatic weapon in public, full stop. Keep that shit on private property. I'd prefer it if people didn't carry their AR-15 dick replacements into the local department stores with tactical webbing and camo from head to toe either, but I guess that's more a personal preference.

So? Agree? Disagree? Am I just rambling?

I mean, Fart, the fact that these threads have pretty much just become a wankfest for pro-gun rights activists (me included) should be telling that the creator of the threads will usually be one of those wankers.

Also, who are you? IM? Why do you care about Polls so much? And why does it matter? These threads haven't had a legitimate poll since the first one.

tl;dr: W h y?

A debate?! Even a middle-school debate club would be insulted by the comparison.

One side of the "debate" believes in things like "fully-semi-automatic guns", "assault weapons", "massacre machine gun magazines", and "30 caliber clips" that let you "dispense 30 bullets within half a second", one side wants to ban things like "magazines that can hold multiple bullets".

Gun control is a "debate" like Mike Tyson vs Honey Boo Boo is the boxing match of the century!

Honestly, I would prefer a centrist OP for threads like this, but given how polarized issues like this are that's like trying to find a needle in an infinite haystack

I find it odd that when it comes to firearms, and no other type of arms, we treat this portion of an enumerated right as a privilege, let alone the insane restrictions, hoops and rigamarole that no other right is subjected to.
To me it is govt overreach, and my ideal system of gun control is using both hands. Other than that, I'm against all gun control laws.
