We ran across this announcement from the ATF’s New York office touting the opening of the federal gun regulator’s fabulous new e-commerce site. They’re selling ATF-branded clothing and gear. How cool is that?
In addition to the usual hats, shirts, water bottles, and coffee mugs, you can buy this little fella . . .
There’s apparently no truth to the rumor that he comes complete with a bullet hole.
But rather than sporting BATFE swag, we have a better idea. Why not eliminate the entire ATF and the roughly $1.3 billion the taxpayer
wastes spends on the regulator every year?
How? Simple. Just replace the entire bloated, grasping, rights-abrogating bureaucracy with one of these:
What you see here, ladies and gentlemen, is the MAF Magic ATF Ball. And for only $19.95, it does exactly what you think it does.
Why should we foot the bill for more than 5000 federal employees when the Magic ATF Ball can handle any inquiry you might have?
Are you wondering if you can shoulder your AR pistol equipped with a stabilizing brace?
Are you a firearm manufacturer and want to get a ruling on your new design?
Wanna find out what it takes to SBR your rifle and stay on the right side of the NFA?
Have a question about that gun you’re thinking of building at home?
Can you give a gun you’ve built to someone else?
The handy-dandy Magic ATF Ball has 20 possible answers to handle any question you could ask…all of them as authoritative and informative as you can expect to get from the ATF itself.
The good news is, TTAG has a small supply of these little wonders, thanks to the good folks at MAF. We’ll be running occasional weekend photo caption contests over the next few weeks to give them to you, our valued readers. So keep your eye out and get creative. If you win one, you too may be able to spin up your own federal regulatory behemoth and dispense opaque, confusing, arbitrary, and frequently conflicting rulings and opinions, all on the taxpayer’s dime.
