One of our readers tipped us off to a worrisome trend in Connecticut. Transfers for firearms regulated under the National Firearms Act (NFA) have always been slow, but in the last few months things have started coming back down to a reasonable waiting time. That is, for most of the country. For those living in the Nutmeg State it seems that the ATF might be deliberately slowing down the processing of NFA paperwork in order to more accurately discern whether the guns being registered are, in fact, legal to own there . . .
What the Federal government is doing is meddling in state affairs is another discussion, but for now it looks like things will be slowing down — again — for CT gun owners.
From CT Gun Talk:
Things are gonna be slow with CT NFA for some time. CT.GOV got some butthurt going on and made some angry phone calls. ATF is triple checking any SBR or manufacturing applications. Cans seems to be good to go, but they are being slightly delayed. Apparently there have been several attempts to SBR some guns that cant be SBRed. Also the NFA branch is being extra careful with ANY state with any type of AWB. This should not affect dealers or manufacturers (07s) in any way, just the end users.
Gun control by bureaucracy? Using Federal “inefficiencies” to deter people from owning legal firearms? We report, you deride.
