    Another genius commits a felony while trying to virtue signal by "destroying" their AR15. Shows just how ignorant of gun laws the left is and ignorance of the law isn't enough to get you out the crime committed.

    Would be nice if they did more than just investigate, but that seems unlikely. Glad it’s got their attention though, a step in the right direction!

    The communist left isn't known for rational behaviour.

    They aren't known as loons for no reason.

    Their idiocy did however create the largest man made extinction of humanity extent.

    But we warned you.

    Made sure they took off rear sight/optic 1st, publicity stunt, probably bought cheapist one they could find to get their 15 min of social media fame, liberal garbage.

    She wouldn't be the the first dumbass reported to ATF for pulling this stunt.

    The ATF isn't going to waste its time investigating this.
    It's publicity stunt.

    It's NOT a short barreled rifle.
    The barrel is ruined and will need to be replaced before the rifle can be fired.

    This is a cheap attempt to make an anti-gunner look stupid,
    but it looks like it backfired.

    And what makes it even worse, on her social media she's openly calling people that have pointed out her crime "trolls". That's seriously what she thinks of people that are disagreeing with her, we're nothing but "trolls" to her. Right now she's one of five candidates for the House seat and I'm sure this stunt with help her with the hardcore leftists.

    If she wins the primary, I'm going to donate $100 to her opponent, Incumbent Scott Taylor, who co-sponsored H.R.197 (National Reciprocity).

    I swear, I sometimes wonder if you have a single functioning brain cell left that isn't controlled by Alex Jones.

    She absolutely did create a short barreled rifle and that gun absolutely will fire a single bullet for one pull of the trigger. It is a short barreled rifle according to the law and whether it cycles the action and chambers another round is meaningless in the eyes of the law.

    Just because you don't understand that doesn't mean she didn't violate the law.

    In that photo she's not half-bad looking. I wouldn't hit it now as I'm still relatively young and I have a good looking wife, but when I'm 55, bald, and I have a pot-belly, I'll be willing to give a woman that looks like that a good Gribbling!!!

    In the video in which she's committing a felony, she looks like a round lump of dough with a mouth that moves and she could kill a boner with a single glance and faster than 100 saltpeter tablets. Besides that, her incessant non-sensical rambling is enough to make me get nauseous.

    All my brain cells are functioning just fine.
    I see reality, not what society wants me to see. I don't follow the herd.

    She had no intention of creating an SBR.
    She doesn't plan to fire that rifle.
    It's a publicity stunt, not a criminal act.

    If the ATF gets involved, it will only be to take the rifle off her hands.
    That will be doing her a favor since she plans on disposing of it anyway.

    The ATF is not stupid. Close sometimes, but this is not one of those times.

    Absolutely...and to quote Meg Ryan from one of her more notable films: "There Will be a day of reckoning!"

    I get that it becomes a single-shot, but why won’t it fire?

    And serious question: Since the ATF isn’t stupid and won’t go after these people, does one just need to film and post video of their making of an SBR to avoid the ATF’s attention? Interesting...

    I was thinking RBF but maybe not. It comes down to sandwich making really.

    Intent is irrelevant.

    She illegally created an unregistered SBR. Plain and simple.

    That is a crime. Period.

    It is an SBR. It will fire. It is illegal. She committed a felony. She wants more gun laws but doesn't want gun laws to apply to her.

    That said, JBN is right. Complete waste of time to pursue her crime. Send her a letter telling her she committed a felony which also includes the statute of limitations. Tell her to keep her nose clean or face charges. If she complains about government intrusion send her an application to join the Republican or Libertarian parties.
