Accursed spell check! It should be “swept” away!

Wild Bill

Yep, all that is Unconstitutional and need to be sweated away, Donald is the broom, hopefully. But who is this Jeff Folloder?


Thanks for all you do and let’s not forget those responsible for all of this: Jeff “41F” Folloder and his gang of cronies at the NFATCA.

Boycott them and every website related to them!

As usual, it ain’t about guns, it’s about control. Just wait until the Hill and Bill traveling criminal circus gets to DC.

2nd Amender

they never left!

That’s what I’ve been trying to tell people for years!

Ditto. Got two more Form 1’s in before the new rule took effect. What a slap in the face this whole business is. This ruling will prevent ZERO criminals from making suppressors and SBR’s. The only thing this will do is to slow down an already ridiculous process for law-abiding citizens to exercise their rights. The BATFE needs to be abolished.




And the GCA of ’68.


Already got my SBR’s and Suppressors. Ain’t gonna mess with this BS !
