Blocked funding for ATF's planned shotgun import ban already paying dividends

This is exactly the sort of tactically useful shotgun that the BATFE had hoped to ban. Without the BATFE funding prohibition in the appropriations bill, that ban would be well on its way already. Any 1919s that may have managed to sneak in before the ban would have been quickly snapped up by speculators, and thus priced beyond the means of most shooters, rather than the $699 that is apparently the going price.

"sporting purposes" clause still needs to go (and despite rumors to the contrary, it has not yet done so). The appropriations bill only provides protection for the one year it is in effect. Still, this is good news for now. [More]

Oh, and if you could spare a digg?
