Your faith in the ATF has not aged well.
indeed, my prediction has not.

I have learned more about the differences in Federal Law, Federal regulations, and rulemaking.  With new info I have had to update my thinking.  i.e.:

Quote
The rule unambiguously defines the upper as a receiver and does so in direct conflict of what the law says.  While there might be a determination right now, has the ATF ever changed a determination?

Is an untrue statement.  Federal LAW does not define an upper or lower.


I answered your speculation on what THIS proposed rule says.  If DOJ decides to update this rule again, then we would have to update our conversation.  But for now, ATF is explicitly not trying to serialize or treat as a receiver AR15 uppers.  There's enough bad in the new rule to deal with without inventing more problems.

The rule states that split receiver designs that already have a determination  (i.e. an AR15 design) will continue to use that determination as to what is a frame.  So they aren't trying to regulate AR uppers.

Also:
If the ATF lawyers thought they could do that, they would have by now.  They have dropped criminal cases and let people go over this issue, which you just know had to hurt their little black hearts.

There is no part (singular, as the definition is clearly singular) on many modern firearms that fits the legal definition of "receiver".  It will take legislative action to change that definition.  Those are facts. That can't be reinterpreted.

Is there any room on the form for Polish-French-Ukranian-German-American?

Maybe there should be one for Mongrel-American, n'est-ce pas?

I need to hire bodies in the auto parts store.
 ......

We're so hosed. No online apps are coming in, and when Junior's parents find out that he'll start at minimum wage, like everyone else, they go into corner office mode. Or the retired people figure that it isn't worth the hassle.

I may have found your problem......

Around here, every single small business has signs out that they are hiring. Stories running in the paper about places can't get any applicants. I don't know what to think about it.

The upper alone would be a receiver under these rules.

The rule states that split receiver designs that already have a determination  (i.e. an AR15 design) will continue to use that determination as to what is a frame.  So they aren't trying to regulate AR uppers.

The "is designed to" language would seem to kill any commercial 80% (or 10% for that matter) frames.

It is looking like I'll be a couple of miles from the Pink Liquor Store in October...

You don't need to be a mechanic. I wasn't.
 
You don't need to know a whole helluva lot about cars. I still don't.
 
You do need at least minimal customer service skills, and the ability to speak a complete sentence to a customer without using the word <bleep>.
