I really dont understand how this happened. I do not own one of these firearms. But the ATF just changed its classifcation and now its a distructive device. Whats next are they going to classify the Ruger 10/22 a destuctive device and we all be forced to register it. Wouldnt congress have to pass a law requiring the registration of firearms.

So Could they include any firearm in the NFA?

A destructive deviuce is anything that expells something (projectile) and has a bore over half an inch.  Exceptions are made for "sporting" shotguns.

12 ga shotguns, by nature, have bores over half an inch.  

So, when a Klinton treasury lackey noted that the Streetsweeper, USAS 12, and Striker 12 could fit under the destructive device laws with a bit of creative interpreptation of the "sporting" thing, they went for it.

They didn't change the SPAS 12, LAW 12, Beretta riot guns, etc., due to capacity and lack of a magazine.  The SPAS 15 was probably ignored because only a few got into the country.
