    Where are we now? I know the White House issued an EO proposing banning them, but I haven't heard anything lately. Is there a ban in effect immediately?

    Same place we were five years ago.

    No, the White House didn't.

    Nope.

    An unenforceable law doesn't ban anything.

    You can tell what the gun grabbers plans are from the first 3 or 4 paragraphs. Sue gun manufacturers out of existence, effectively ban all home manufacturing of guns. Problem solved.

    I thought it was an executive action and not order.

    I'm not sure what it was, that is why I'm asking. I see quotes like this in the media

    I suppose it is an EA, but exactly what does this mean. This quote is from about a month ago, but I haven't heard anything recently.

    I'm not trying to start a political fight, just want to know if they are still legal at the present time.

    So far these are just proposals. Nothing has actually changed.

    I'd recommend sticking to the Shark fin or Thordson. Not the ''poke a bear'' types.

    But nothing has changed yet.

    Getting to the point where I don't really give a crap what the WH says, or does...
    Some of it is just demented babbling, a lot of it is probably going to be straight up illegal, or unconstitutional, and ain't none of it gonna be good for the country anyway.

    Thanks for asking, the only one I'm currently using is a Tail Hook Ruger 10-22 Charger, however I have a couple SB Tactical braces I've removed when I finally got my Form 1 SBR stamps ... at 64, I'm not planning on doing any more NFA, they will just be problems for my wife or children when I pass. Hopefully I'm good for another 15-20 years, but it seems like I'm falling apart faster than I thought I would!

    I was thinking that 5 years ago this was such a mess no one actually understood what the status was ... illegal SBR if it touched your shoulder? Then it was OK if it inadvertently touched your shoulder ... then illegal if you were using the brace as a stock ... which is where I think we are now, but to be honest, I dont really know.

    However your last comment was helpful.

    I think the status would be a lot clearer and on more solid ground if the NRA hadn't rolled over on Trump's fiat bump stock ban.

    Name them specifically to heirs in your will, they transfer tax free on inheritance.

    Unfortunately, our family is small and I’m pretty much a lone “gun nut”. They don’t understand the passion I have for firearms.
    If I ask, I do have a son & grandson that will go to the range with me occasionally, but they don’t ask me ... none want to learn the intricately, significance, history or relevance of firearms and the are the only two that even know the difference between an AR, AK & AUG ... and ask about about a single action army and a SiG226 or an UZI or Thompson and a blank stare would be their only reaction ... for whatever reason the rest of the family have no interest ... so other than the first gun we shot together, how can I leave anything to them? I do have hope for one granddaughter but who knows how her feelings about firearms will develop as she grows up.
    I have a cousin on my moms side that’s my age and has the same problem.
    My suppressors I could leave to friends, the AR SBR’s could be parted out, but the others that aren’t modular, I can sell off as my ability to enjoy diminishes, but I’m not looking forward to that.

    It's not necessary for NFA items to be named specifically in a will, for them to pass tax-free on a Form 5. It's enough for them to pass "by operation of law" or under the catch-all residuary clause of a will.

    Keep in mind that probated wills are public records, and thus specific gun information would be available to anyone who cared to browse through the records.
