Read the entire article: http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-n ... new-dangerAn interpretation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that pistol grip shotguns are not shotguns has created an unforeseen legal liability for owners of such firearms. ATFâ€™s Nov. 2009 FFL Newsletter declared:...
That would seem to indicate thereâ€™s no issue with violating National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record (NFRTR) requirements, right? No worries if you own one, or want to buy oneâ€¦?
Not so fast. If the pistol grip firearms are not â€œshotguns,â€ what are they?
I would especially read it if you own one of these "pistol grip shotguns." You may be in violation of Federal Gun Laws and subject to problems with the ATF.
