WhiteHouse.gov petition to Remove suppressors as an NFA regulated item

Removal of suppressors as an NFA regulated item would eliminate the $200 tax stamp, eliminate legality and travel issues between states, reduce hearing safety concerns related to discharging firearms, and would help people be courteous neighbors when discharging firearms.

Get in and let them know how you feel!!

AAC SOL Logo makes the News

Advanced Armament’s “Statue of Liberty” logo (found on most of our boxes) was Trademarked some time back and not without a bit of . . .  discussion.

Well today, the Washington Post did a story on . . . the controversy :)

LINK

My favorite part:

In this regard, we note that the mark does not depict the Statue of Liberty in a threatening pose or in any manner suggestive of criminal activity. Indeed, it may be viewed by many as suggestive of, and consistent with, the right to bear arms that is enshrined in the Constitution. The disclaimed wording MADE IN THE USA, appearing below the statue, would seem to reinforce such a view.

We disagree with the examining attorney’s suggestion that the mark is somehow more offensive than it would be if it only showed the Statue of Liberty holding a gun, because of the inclusion of the silencer and the banner design containing the term SILENCERS. See Brief, p. 9 (“the Statue of Liberty is not just holding a gun, but a gun with an attached silencer…. Furthermore, the statue is displayed enveloped by a banner that prominently reads in large letters SILENCERS.”). We do not believe that the record before us supports the examining attorney’s suggestion. Indeed, we note that the word SILENCERS and the depiction of the product may well be viewed as a descriptive or generic reference to the actual goods…

ATF UPDATES FINAL ACTION DATE FOR 41P – Sometime in 2015

ATF UPDATES FINAL ACTION DATE FOR 41P
Written by ASA on May 28, 2014 – Comments

LINK to Rule Page
Last Fall, the Obama Administration issued an executive action that seeks to amend the transfer of NFA firearms. Known as ATF 41P, it was published in the Federal Register on September 9 and granted a 90 day comment period. In all, over 9,500 comments were submitted to the Federal Register. Of those, around 1,000 were disqualified for vulgarity, anonymity, or non-applicability. Not surprisingly, the overwhelming majority of comments were in opposition to the proposed CLEO signoff requirement. The ASA comment can be viewed here: ASA Comment

The standard timeframe for a final ruling is generally six months after the close of the comment period. However, because of the overwhelming amount of comments submitted, we were told by ATF that the final ruling would likely not be issued until early 2015, because each qualified comment must be responded to by the ATF in writing. This was recently confirmed by an update in the latest publication of the Semi-Annual Regulatory Agenda.

After the final ruling is issued, there are generally 60 days before implementation. Until the ruling is released, we will not know if forms that are already in the transfer process will be exempt from the proposed requirements. However, if history is an example, it is likely that all forms received by the ATF prior to the implementation of the final regulation will be exempt.

SAKO at the Range

Earier this week I assisted with a Demo with Matt Kennedy from B&H Police Sales and Rick from Beretta

We were using the Titan Ti on the TRG-22 in .308 and the TRG M10 in 338 Lapua Magnumrifles from SAKO.  We were shooting about a 10″ gong at 350 yards and honestly, it got a little boring hitting time after time after time . . . with no earpro :)
