    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 shotgunstudy@atf.gov".

    If this is not a joke, then the comment period ends in less than two weeks!

    Look at the date of the article. That was last year when people were trying to sell $2000 Saiga 12s because they were going to be banned. It never happened.

    There's legislation preventing the ATF from doing this now. It's covered here: Blocked funding for ATF's planned shotgun import ban already paying dividends - St. Louis gun rights | Examiner.com
