NFA Violations on Facebook

This is a post that recently popped up on a private Facebook firearms group. Needless to say, it very quickly spun out of control. But not for what you might initially have thought!

NFA Violations on Facebook

NFA Violations on Facebook

Sure, there were lots of folks who were making the argument that the story as it is being told is a major violation of the NFA regulations. But the most astounding aspect of the thread was Carl’s negative response to that information. In short, he thought everyone was being a completely unreasonable by quoting federal regs and the consequences of such violations.

Furthermore, he decided to go on a mission to get any and every person who spoke ill of his post banned from that same group. For…you know…pissing in his Wheaties.

I don’t know Carl. And I am not a member of the Facebook group where this problem is playing out. But I once worked with a federal agent who described perfectly how all these criminal enterprises end up:

    Why are people stupid enough to put crap like that on an open to the world platform? Ego, they want their ego stoked. Gotta prove to the world they they are the “coolest Bad Asses” in the whole wide world. As a personal example of this I present this Christmas tale.

    My wife bought me an sweet new AR one year for Christmas. In a warm fuzzy state of dumbassedness I somehow thought it would be cool for my buddies to immediately see what my lady had bought me. You know where this one is going, right? Took probably about an hour till someone, I didn’t want to ask, asked “where I was going with that big bad black gun,” “what did I need that for” blah blah blah. Before I realized that not only had I been stupidly cocky I also advertised to the world where someone looking to steal an AR could find one if they knew me. Well at least I was smart (?) enough to remove the picture quickly. This is when you realize that your friends are mostly OK but some of their friend’s, friends are Douches. It just was a stupid mistake in the first place, one that I won’t make again and should have never made at all, but………

    This was a long while back before all the Anti-gun crap became so prevalent on FB. As much as I disagree with their thought and policies on guns they are still a good info source to keep up with what is going on around us. You just have to take info from them and not provide info to them. There is still a huge amount of firearm info, sites, still on there. The selling groups are gone but they were iffy propositions all along as far as I was concerned. I’m not gonna buy guns (or sell) in public where every limp dick can see what I’m doing.

    Hope you had a Good Christmas and New Year Marky. Santa was good to me. Hope he was to you. HO HO HO

    • Mine was busy. I worked out of town.

      Glad to hear you got a AR as a gift. You found a good one.

        Asked for a dance and I lucked into my wife, best friend, buddy, partner, love of my life…….. all rolled into one. God was good to me, and I thank him every day. Of course I picked the AR out but she let me. Thankfully she has never said the word “no” only “we need to wait a little while.” I am lucky beyond words.
