    GREAT!!! The more, the merrier. Pretty soon every eligible person in the United States will be armed (except for the "Brady Bunch).

    Great news, we broke the ATF's computer. :D Thanks, Obama, for trying to meddle with gun owners and impinge 2A. You've created a booming firearms industry and helped to arm millions more Americans.

    The article applies to NFA guns only. Good. The current wait time is over 8 months.

    That is a hell of alot of machine guns considering there are only between 160,000 and 185,000 transferable. That is a huge number of police transfers and SOT 2 builds.

    I believe silencers would be a large percentage of the registered NFA transfers and machine guns would be the smallest.

    I think you are correct. WA State legalized suppressor ownership a year ago and EVERYONE is this state is buying them.

    Same here in Texas. Suppressors were approved for hunting here last year and they've been selling like hotcakes ever since. I applied for the Class 111 stamp yesterday on a silencer I bought last week and I'm curious to see how long it takes to be approved. FWIW, I built a SBR a few years back and also submitted that Form 4 in May. I finally got the stamp the week after Christmas that year and I'm wondering if this one will take as long. :cool:

    For non agencies suppressors and SBRs dwarf the number of machine guns. There are only between 160,000 and 185,000 transferable machine guns in existence.

    The article mentioned half a million machine gun transfers. Most of those are probably law enforcement agency transfers. Most destructive device transfers are flash bang grenades for SWAT teams.
