Home Defense and Competitive Shooting Act

Below The Radar: Home Defense and Competitive Shooting Act, VOTE YES
What are these benefits stemming from this modification to the National Firearms Act?

Well, for starters, it means that to buy an AR-15 (or any other rifle) with a barrel less than 16 inches long will only require passing the National Instant Check System. No need for a $200 transfer tax, no need for permission from the chief law enforcement officer in your jurisdiction, no need for permission to travel across state lines. Heck, buying an AR-15 upper with a barrel under 16 inches and installing it on a rifle you currently own will not put you at risk of a federal felony conviction leading to ten years and a $250,000 fine.

It would be nice if this were to actually go somewhere, but I'm not expecting much.

It's a nonstarter in the House, and I doubt the Senate will touch something this controversial.
I will never apologize for being an American.

While it will not happen, it is closer to the way it should be.
