Nalioth, you're about the only person in this thread with a lick of common sense on the matter. It is for manufacturers and importers. The whole entire purpose of the law is to force foreign manufacturers to give business to US companies before the rifle reaches the consumer. It has nothing to do with us.

And all the people who are crying that they might loose their firearm rights over a law that isn't enforceable on the end user and a law that has NEVER been applied to ANY of the over one hundred million of common gun owners over a span of decades, are just fear mongering and paranoid IMHO.
