    ATF Classifies Chore Boy Pot Scrubber Pads NFA Firearms

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Firearms Technology Branch has deemed “Chore Boy copper cleaning pads, along with fiberglass insulation,” a firearm, subject to registration and a $200 transfer tax, an official letter obtained recently by Gun Rights Examiner reveals. The response to an attorney inquiry by John R. Spencer, Chief, Firearms Technology Branch, offers one of the more creatively restrictive assessments since ATF declared a shoestring to be a machinegun.

    Next they will want to register pipe and fittings, after all they may be used to make pipe bombs. Maybe the DEA should check their evidence rooms in case the ATF has been removing some product for their own use.

    Sounds like a hoax but, it is the BATF.

    To clarify, they are declaring that you cannot replace deteriorated material within an already- registered suppressor without an approved ATF Form.

    Actually this stuff is the best thing for gun owners because it makes the bureau look like complete idiots, next we will find out about "Fast and furious III" where they get strawmen to go into grocery stores to buy pot scrubbers.

    That's not the whole story though. Although legally they couldnt do the repair themselves,
    all one would have to do is send it back to the factory or any 07/02 for repair and unless they were replacing the serialized part, it wouldn't be subject ot the 200$ Tax.

    Retarded, I can replace every part inside the receiver of my AR and no problem; yet somehow this is an issue why? ...nevermind Hotguns provided the answer:

    Worse for me, DE does not allow them anyway.

    The ATF needs to be abolished, along with all authorities it currently has. This agency has done nothing to make Americans any safer, but has gone a long way towards criminalizing harmless behavior and stripping us of our freedoms.

    Well said! I had to put this on my FB page a few minutes ago. I wonder if the ATF also knows what can be made with kitchen matches and iron pipe?

    Sad state of affairs and, yet another, waste of tax dollars.

    Indeed. They are not declaring those items firearms. They are only saying that you may not use them to
    do your own repair of a silencer.

    Sort of stupid; but heck---- you are talking Tax Man here. Its about the 200 bucks, not about the
    other stuff. They'd tax potatoes if they could figure out how to do it.

    If for example I want to bring you in but you refuse to comply because you do not want to talk? It would be stupid on the part of the government not to have a seldom used law on the books which could be used to force compliance now wouldn't it?
    Trust me. We will only use these seemingly stupid laws when absolutely necessary to force your compliance. If you people would cooperate we wouldn't need to invent crimes!

    BTW: You do know that the stuff under your kitchen sink is bomb making materials and not cleaning supplies didn't you?
