    The feds dont like having money taken from them. The NFA has become very lucrative over the past couple of years. Just wait til they put semi autos on the NFA. Id love for it to be gone but they get the control they want, plus a $200 bonus per item

    More money to shovel into their pockets

    MGs were still rare... I wouldn't say they were anywhere close to common. We're talking half a million forms in 2020, and around 40k in 2005. It was even less before then. In 86, AR-15s were not common at all either. The 2nd Amendment is crippled by what the courts interpret it as. They have stated it can have regulations and limits on unusual items. (It's not my opinion or belief, just what they have ruled.)

    As far as protection... look at the Clinton era ban. That's one example of it.

    NFA items are weird and unusual which means they are able to be limited more than "normal" arms. Until they become "common use" then they'll be subject to nonsense
    They are not in common use only because they are regulated. Simply unpin the flash hider from all the M4geries out there and SBRs would be common.

    Yeah, I'd be nice if they at least struck down the ban on the sale of new machine guns to the public.

    We can't even get republicans to introduce and push a hearing protection act to get pieces of the NFA taken down. Suppressors aren't even guns but are more regulated than the thing they're designed to accessorize. I'd take that as a good first step; make suppressors just accessories or even on the same level as buying a gun today, then start focusing on SBRs, SBSs, and AOW stuff, but leave machine guns and explosive launchers on the NFA. And before you say it, no it shouldn't be as restrictive but if they kill us with 1000 papercuts, we should do it back.

    The Hearing protection act was pretty much on the table until the Vegas Shooting in 2017.

    That means they weren't serious about passing it in the first place. Convenient excuse for them...
    I was going to say something similar: when it comes to sending $50,000,000,000 to a foreign country they got that approved in under a week. Another $700 bill for "infrastructure"? passed at light-speed. HPA had some murmurs of activity then "well we can't discuss it now, it'll look like we support murderers!"
