ATF's regs actually say "possess or sell". Now, they don't really mean that in this context, but do you really see an BO admin AG not interpreting them exactly as written??? ETA: And to tie this back to my comment on discipline, some moron could go and file a suit against the feds mirroring what Alan did with the purpose of evading the list, get a hostile federal judge in NH or MA to say as much, CA1 will rubber stamp them, then we have that precedent on the books for use in other contexts. If we have an issue with the list, we need to file a suit about the list. We have already started that with the suit against the AGs office. One step at a time.
