[The ATF] showed up in late August and said basically, “Hey, it’s a machine gun, we’ve deemed it a machine gun.” I said, “What? When did this happen?”
They’re like, “Well we just deemed it a machine gun.”
I was like, “Ok, well where is my paperwork?”
“We don’t have any paperwork.”
“What do you mean you don’t have any paperwork? Is there, like, a report?”
“There is a report, but you can’t have it.”
“Wait a minute, you’re telling me it’s a machine gun, and there’s a report, but I can’t have the report.”
“You would have to go to court in order to get this report.”
Etc. Such a level of bullshit is amazing.
They're apparently counting on saying 'Ignorance of the law is no excuse', except when you make a POINT of not telling people about a 'law' you created out of thin air, that doesn't(damn well shouldn't) work.
Of course, considering what a crapshow an awful lot of courts are anymore, you can't count on it.
