I'm more in favor of local "I Ain't Registering My Semi-Autos; Whaddya Gonna Do About It?" peaceable assemblage parties with a hundred or two of your closest semi-auto owning friends & acquaintances at convenient public venues - designed to make the would-be enforcers pony up with an immediate answer.
The “Boating accident” answer is cute, but it is what THEY want you to say, and it will get you locked up just like Martha Stewart.
If questioned about ANYTHING, ask if they are conducting an investigation, and if so, you will answer NOTHING without your attorney. Any other answer will only be Hillery’s favorite answer during Whitewqter (256 times!) I do not recall or I do not remember. Nothing else!
Likewise. United we stand, divided we fall. And BATF won’t be getting any help or backup from any Sheriffs or Police out here in West Texas.
