I get that. My ironic profile pic notwithstanding, I have a lot to lose. Sure, it's easy for someone living a hundred miles out in the desert to be a "free man" but it's not the same if you have a successful business and a high profile.SOT's walk a thin line and follow laws to keep themselves out of jail. Jail sucks. I get what the "FreE MeN " crowd is saying but it seems to me some of them have had little exposure to the ATF or the NFA and do not know what they are capable of. I do. Ive seen friends go to jail over NFA charges and have had CI's attempt to incriminate ME personally. I will not advocate for nor participate in breaking of ATF rules , regs or the NFA . I could give a crap if something is unjust.
The other reason to keep your nose clean is that if you did ever have to defend your family with a semi auto rifle, of course the fed boys are gonna go over you with a fine tooth comb so unregistered bits are a lot bigger liability for me than an advantage.
But, if i ever sold my business i'd seriously consider getting my ffl/sot and i just may try to create a product that creates a potential legal battle for a pro-2a precedent.
