What’s up with “All NFA Rules Apply” If I remember correctly is was a rule made up by Shotgun News for adds that had NFA items in them. Some feel good policy or PC move?? And now people have accepted it as necessary? But really, what is that suppose to mean. Doesn’t that go without saying? People act like if that’s in their add, they’re some how released from any legal or moral obligation. If someone advertises a legal NFA machine gun without the phrase, is it somehow less legitimate? Or on the other hand, if they include the phrase in an add for a machine gun parts kit some how more legitimate? [b]R[/b]ighteous [b]K[/b]ill

More of a CYA phrase if you're selling parts which are not of themselves NFA controlled items, but can be used to assemble NFA controlled items. Shows lack of intent on the part of the seller to help the buyer (should the buyer do so) violate the NFA. Also warns newbies (who still, it seems, think those shotgun news auto sears can be installed in their shiny new AR-15 rifle) that there are laws and rules they may not yet be aware of governing the use of the stuff in the ad.

I’ve just always found it amusing. I suppose there is merit in the fact it warns uneducated buyers. Assuming they’ll even bother to find out what it means. “EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY”, yeah, that one makes me wonder also.

I always find it amusing when watching TV commercials for cars doing neat things - the car companies put "Professional Driver on closed course" yada yada yada. Or the science shows with "Don't try this at home" before every experiment or project. It's not just in regard to guns that we must protect ourselves from the foolish, RK. If you leave a ladder out and someone trespasses to climb up the ladder, falls and hurts themselves, they'll sue you and probably win. Or like idiots who spill coffee on themselves, then sue mcdonald's because it was too hot....

I think literally EVERYTHING should have stickers that say "All NFA rules apply", "Warning: May cause drowsiness", "Under penalty of law this tag must not be removed" and "Registered with Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture".

It was years before I discovered that cutting the tag off of a new pillow or mattress really did not carry a "20 to Life" stretch in a Federal Prison.

Legally it's a waste of space. There's no obligation to do it nor will it exculpate your behavior if you break the law.

Has anyone actually read the entire part 922 transcript? If you're a hopeless insomniac you might just find a cure there. loose-round

Funny, I always interpreted that "NFA rules apply" thingy to basically mean... We have questionably legal stuff to sell, the public wants it, I'll sell it to them and let em do what they want with it. I mean really, are there that many preban lowers that don't already have tele-stocks? Every other page in Shotgun news sells em. Or how about furniture for AK variants. How many preban rifles actually have broken stocks that need replacing?

Yep, I realize that. But most people I know that own verified, papered pre-bans have converted em' to tele-stocks. Pre-bans with fixed A2 stocks seem to be rare round my parts.
