Bill to remove SBR’s from registry introduced

Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS) introduced legislation Tuesday to streamline the ATF approval process for guns regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA) and completely remove short-barreled rifles from NFA purview.
While removing future short-barreled rifle sales from NFA purview, Marshall’s bill would also require the destruction of existing registration of such rifles.
In a press release accompanying the legislation, Marshall said, “Opponents of the Second Amendment want to use bureaucracy and regulations to obstruct citizens attempting to exercise their God-given right to keep and bear arms. The firearms addressed in this bill are commonly used for hunting, personal defense, and competitive shooting.”

He added, “Since I came to Congress, I have fought tooth and nail to stop attempts that would strip our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. This bill will eliminate regulations designed not to protect Americans, but to deny them their Constitutional rights.”

NRA-ILA executive director Jason Ouimet commented on Marshall’s efforts, saying, “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I thank Dr. Marshall for introducing necessary legislation that will restore Constitutional rights to law-abiding Americans to choose which firearms best suit their needs.”

Ouimet continued, “It’s time Congress eliminates costly and unnecessary government regulations on short-barreled rifles, which are used in sport shooting, hunting, and are especially popular with women gun owners for self-defense.“

Is it possible for a bill to have a less than zero chance of being brought up for a vote in the House?

Second only to suppressors, the rules about what is and what is not a SBR are so insane and so pointless from any conceivable public safety argument that they should have been scrapped years ago. Instead, we have states looking to ban all semi-automatic firearms from private ownership. :x

I get there are "rules" about what is and what is not a SBR, I just don't see functional differences between pistols, riffles, and shotguns.

Why is this such a big deal with the government?

Few years ago the FCC decided to drop the $10 fee for getting a vanity call-sigh (in amateur radio) because the cost of just processing the payment was more than the fee.

Government, the most expensive way to do anything!

I wonder how many people touch each application by the time it gets finalized?
