Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms & Explosives Final Rule on Bump-Stock-Type Devices

On December 26, 2018, the Dept. of Justice, BATFE published its final rule clarifying that bump-stock-type devices are “machineguns” as defined in the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968. This rule becomes effective on March 26, 2019, and by that date anyone that possesses bump-stock-type devices is required to (1) destroy the devices pursuant to specific guidance OR (2) turn them in at an ATF office.

I will share a few FAQs that I have received in order to explain a bit further.
