To reiterate, this bill does NOT create ANY new data-base!

It has nothing to do with normal run of the mill firearms as are owned by the majority of Americans.
It IS intended to allow legislative relief to our veterans and their heirs who have war trophy NFA arms they obtained prior to Dec. 1968.

NFA Arms are legal in most states, so long as they are properly registered in the NFRTR data-base.
ATFE has screwed up the NFRTR, innocent Americans are at risk of prosecution this very minute.
Our veterans are at particular risk as a greater percent of them own NFA arms they brought back as souvenirs.
They are dying off at a rapid rate, the NFA arms are being found by heirs who do not know their legal status, and have no idea how to deal with the regulations and flawed NFRTR.

After reading 5845 I agree this bill is not a dragon in disguise. Though, I'm not sure it is of great importance either and protecting Vets who own war trophies is not the most important constraint that needs to be placed on BATF. As an incremental step I can support it but I fear it will lack serious follow through. Also it's amnesty provisions should apply to any "described" firearm no matter where or by whom acquired.
