    It's obvious this had the potential to get really big really fast. The withdrawal is a relief of sorts but don't believe for a minute it's not still a topic in their halls and offices at The Ariel Rios Federal Building.
    A M16 is a fancy city girl, sexy as hell, but a bit moody. It's all good as long as you take her to the clubs and get what she asks. If you cross the? line, its over.

    An AK is a naughty girl, all in latex and with a whip begging you to be naughty. The nastier you are the happier she is. Its clear that she wont dump you, you'll have to do that on your own.
    The XCR is the perfect blend of both. Sexy as hell but willing to let you beat her and filthy her up and then beg for more.

    ....unfortunately, I expect the real lesson for the ATF here was that the bite was too big, straight up man power shortage......expect they quietly remedy this over the next 3-5 years and build a very robust fine/raid/apprehension/incarceration pipeline and show us the fangs again.

    At the very least...they will better define their terms by saying .223 or bigger "rifle" calibers are NFA, pistols over 3.5 lbs are NFA, no optics other than red dots (even 1-1.5X scopes have eye relief), VFGs will now include angled foregrips, hand stops, and barrier rests since they can all facilitate 2 handed operation (never mind that traditional pistols are fired with 2 hands as the default training method and were never specifically "designed" to be fired with one). No braces that can extend LOP beyond 13.5" (and that's the problem with the SBA3...it allows 14.5ish on a regular buffer tube)....I expect that number to drop to 12" or less for acceptable LOP.

    Oh, and no mods to SBA3 to "pin" them in place at less than the LOP allowed as well as very specific lists of "approved" braces on specific firearms in a specific config. If you own something not on that approved list, it's NFA automatically.

    They might even double down on "not shouldering" the brace. I think all or most of this will be re-written within Biden's first 100 days.

    I'd expect a rescinding of waiving the $200 stamp fee as well...that's a big revenue stream ($1B to $2.3B depending on whose numbers you believe in terms of the number of pistol braces out there and assuming EVERYONE would actually register...which I doubt).

    I wonder what they'll do about folding mechanisms and braces. I'd think they'd just disallow folders.
