letter

I like stuff like that.  I can only imagine how such a response would have made that kid’s day.

Judging by the yellowing of the paper, and the fact it appears to be typed and not printed, i’m assuming it must be fairly old.

I’m curious if Bill Dobrow is a Devil Dog by now. I did a couple of quick google searches and couldn’t come up with anything to suggest he is… but that doesn’t mean he isn’t, seeing as not everyone likes to advertise their career all over the internet.

For a while now we have known that the ATF has had an interest in airsoft guns which they claimed could be turned into real firearms.  We discussed it extensively in the following three posts:

Well it looks like our “calling out” of the ATF to prove their case, finally got a response.  The results are what I expected, but hoped would not be the case.

The ATF response letter, dated May 19, 2010 (Click to enlarge):

I know nothing about airsoft rifles at all, but the letter is apparently regarding the JG M4 airsoft rifle (a copy of the Western Arms M4 GBB design). I am not sure if the WE TTI M4 shipment that was confiscated in Tacoma is still under investigation.

What does this letter mean for the (thousands of?) American kids who own these airsoft rifles? My guess is that if they do not destroy them immediately they will be violating federal law and their parents who are responsible for them could face long prison sentences, and/or substantial fines.

How are the majority of the owners of these airsoft rifles even going to find out that they are in violation of federal law? Who knows…

Pretty ridiculous if you ask me.  Why was this not decided as soon as the first shipment of these airsoft rifles hit our shores? Making people into criminals after the fact is not fair.

What do you guys think?

It would probably be a cold day in hell if we ever got something similar in the U.S..  The off chance that that ever happens here, I’d send Paul Helmke from the Brady Campaign a friendly letter wishing him well in his futile efforts.

In September 2004 the ATF decided that a 14 inch long shoestring was considered a machine gun:

Glock_17_with_GLK18_Full_Auto_Conversion_Device_A

I realize that not everyone can buy these, which is why the price is so low.  The price is reasonable enough though that if you did meet the qualifications then it would be stupid NOT to have one.

This item is a Post 1986 Dealer Sample, available only to Class 3 dealers with a Law Enforcement demo letter. All NFA rules apply.

This item is a Select Fire (Semi Auto / Full Auto) Glock 17.  It uses a conversion device to allow fully automatic operation.  The host pistol is a 3rd Generation Glock 17.  On full-auto, this firearm operates at approximately 1200-1300 rounds per minute.

The conversion device was manufactured by The Armory of Scottsdale Arizona and the model number is GLK18.

That, or an actual Glock 18 is my dream gun!

Someday…  Someday…
