    I think GOA May have just earned another member regardless of the judges ruling.

    I got tired of saying things like that several months ago and went ahead and put my money down. Best part has been I haven't had to unsubscribe from the countless emails, snail mail, and phone calls asking for more money.

    I joined GOA last year and haven't heard a peep from them except for a piece of mail with a welcome letter and a paper membership card. It looks like they may have actually accomplished something today. Go GOA.

    If the laws new definition stands your bump stock will have to be either turned in or destroyed in order to comply.

    Nobody will know until a ruling is made in the court case.

    turn in or destroy before the 26th if you do not want to risk a felony charge or stand up to the man and proudly display it on your front porch

    The page referenced by the OP was published 7 Mar 2019.

    As of 19 Mar 2019, the court had not ruled so the GOA filed an emergency petition and motion in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

    The timing here is what makes me nervous.

    Per the final rule, as published in the Federal Register:
    Is that the beginning of the day or the end of the day? If I choose to surrender my bump stock to the BATFE, must I do so on the 25th or can I actually wait and do it sometime during the day on the 26th? The ruling isn't clear, though I'm sure there are lawyers who work with this stuff who could instantly answer the question.

    I'm trying to figure out if any court will produce any ruling before the passing of the deadline makes the entire question moot. If everyone in the world agrees that the final rule is wrong and it's thrown out on the 28th, that doesn't help. No one will ever be able to bring their bump stock out in public because doing so would provide proof that they were in possession of an illegal machine gun for 24 hours.

    As of now, the GOA is asking for a hearing. They haven't gotten it yet. They have to be heard and the court has to make a favorable ruling far more quickly than these things usually happen. They're in a good jurisdiction but their time is, I fear, far too short.

    There are also two actions being pursued in DC courts, though the same judge will hear both. Those are awaiting rulings, too.

    Bottom line: Those of us who own the things need to know by noon Monday. Ruling or not, if we're to have any chance of taking action that will result in our ability to possess bump stocks in the future or preserve our standing to sue the BATFE for destruction of our property we'll have to do whatever we decide is best on Monday afternoon at the latest.

    It's looking like none of the people who have gone to court are going to get rulings in time to prevent me from visiting the ATF field office Monday.
