Has anyone else heard about this? At first, I thought this was a joke. ATF to accept public comments prior to outlawing shotguns | Greeley Gazette "The ATF completed a study regarding the importability of certain shotguns. The basis for a possible ban is based on a loosely defined "Sporting Purpose" test. Using the vague definition almost all pump-action and semi-automatic shotguns could be banned as they are all capable of accepting a magazine, box or tube capable of holding more than 5 rounds." Also: " The ATF is currently allowing public comments on the study until the end of the month. Those wishing to express concerns about the study can send an email to email@example.com". If this is not a joke, then the comment period ends in less than two weeks!
