    New taxes under Biden gun registration push will reach billions

    New taxes under Biden gun registration push will reach billions

    Paul Bedard 21 hrs ago


    The Biden administration’s new push to regulate highly popular AR-style pistols could net Uncle Sam billions in new tax revenue and rub out a small industry involved in the production of the firearms.

    In a newly proposed regulation from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, most owners will have to pay a $200 tax per weapon or radically change it or turn the gun in to be destroyed.

    And because ATF said it doesn’t expect anyone to give up their guns, the money would roll in if the rule is adopted.

    While the agency estimated that there are 3 million to 7 million of the weapons held by Americans, other agencies and media have put the total at potentially 20 million to 40 million guns and regulated parts.

    At those levels, the agency’s cash register could collect up to $8 billion in the first year of the new rule if everyone complied.

    The 71-page rule signed by Attorney General Merrick Garland would change the classification of the guns popular at ranges and in some hunting circles to a category of “dangerous” weapons and subject to a Al Capone-era rule aimed at ending gangland killings with sawed off shotguns and rifles.

    The rule cited just one deadly shooting where an AR pistol was used.

    At issue is a stabilizing brace attached to the butt of the pistol meant to make it easier to shoot with one hand. Many are extendable and some owners use the pistols as rifles. That, said ATF, turns the shorter barreled pistols into regulated “short barrel rifles.”

    Because the firearms and the braces haven’t been regulated, it is unclear how many have been sold. The National Shooting Sports Foundation told Secrets that the ATF’s estimate of up to 7 million is low. And on his new site The Reload, arms journalist Stephen Gutowski cited a report of up to 40 million guns and braces.

    The ATF rule also suggested that there are eight major makers of the braces, and their industry would be put in jeopardy if it is adopted.

    And if they don't get the revenue, they'll just tax everyone in the country more to fight their unconstitutional ruling (tax) in court

      How does a new rule regulating "others" effect every AR in the country?

        I love how people and agencies give “estimates” without any justification whatsoever. You know what? I say they’re all wrong. I believe there are 6 trillion of these guns in existence. Because I said so. That’s why.

        oh and no one is gonna comply.

          People in Libertard states (NY, CA) are used to bending over for unconstitutional BS gun laws and I would bet a fair amount did not after the passage of the unSAFE act.
          I will wager that that number will be even greater in free/ Red states

                Unfounded, irrational, politically driven bullshit “AR bad” game is way out of control. Garland will get to the SCOTUS one way or another, this’ll get him there, just not on the side of the rail he’d hoped.

                  Technically, that would require two tax stamps.

                      Since SBR's and all class 3's are illegal in NY, is this the death of AR's in NY?

                      This will 100% go to the Supreme Court.

                        This is about AR pistols and braces because of the Boulder shooting.

                        Oshwan, this is about as vague/encompassing as NYSafe was intended to be.
                        It's about what they want it to be about and interpretation is theirs to decide.
