Rare Breed Triggers Responds To Alleged Leaked ATF Memo To Seize FRT-15s From Dealers

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

Lawrence Demonico, the president of Rare Breed Triggers, has just released a YouTube video responding to the alleged leaked ATF memo circulating the internet in the last 24 hours. 

“We have all seen the ATF letter that is spreading like wildfire across the internet, regarding the ATF plans to steal private property from dealers, and of course, I’m referring to the FRT-15 trigger,” Demonico said. 

“All though I cannot authenticate this letter that is allegedly being circulated by the ATF. I can tell you we’ve received word from one dealer in Illinois late yesterday afternoon stating that the ATF visited him and handed him a cease and desist order and seized FRT-15 triggers,” he continued. 

Demonico said he has a lot of experience dealing with the “corrupt and dirty practices of the ATF.” He said, “my jaw is absolutely on the floor in complete disbelief that they’re choosing to take action based on an illegitimate examination and report that was conducted by David Smith and approved by Earl Griffith at the ATF technology branch.”

Demonico went on to say the report is full of “outright lies,” labeling the forced reset trigger as a machine gun. He pointed to a video on the Rare Breed website that demonstrates the FRT-15 trigger is not a machine gun.

Demonico said the news of the alleged ATF memo was first put out by Gun Owners of America (GOA). He said the GOA has yet to support him but has a meeting with them, adding that since the ATF is attacking dealers, maybe the group will finally provide some assistance.

Demonico ends the video by saying, “we’re not back down, and we’ll see this through to the end,” adding “if the ATF can simply just say the FRT-15 is a machine gun without a claim being based on actual laws in the US code — what’s to stop them from reinterpreting the AR-15 altogether is a machine gun — there’s nothing to stop them from doing that.”

Here’s Demonico’s full video responding to the alleged leaked ATF letter:

Maryland-based gun advocacy group The Machine Gun Nest (TMGN) has pointed out this slippery slope numerous times. Here’s what they have to say about the latest alleged ATF memo:

The fact that the ATF is allowed on a whim to change the definition of a machine gun from “Any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger” to “any device that increases the rate of fire” sets an extremely dangerous precedent.

In this video, TMGN sums up the entire current situation happening between the ATF and Rare Breed Triggers.

    1. HAA!! EXACTLY!! has lots of experience DEALING with corrupt and dirty practices.. he supports machine gun ban because he defends his triggers as NOT being machine gun.. he submits to their dirty and complies with their corrupt practices… he KNOWS when they walk in they’re rotten mutherfukers breaking the Law and he doesn’t mow em down?? hes subservient to the one true god Mammon. he submits and complies so he can make money. piecashit…

  1. I wonder how this would have gone if a shit ton of concerned people stood outside these places and didn’t allow this to happen?

  2. I don’t get this situation at all. Shall not be infringed is being pissed on and all these people worried about triggers.

    1. oh you bet your ass hes former something.. cop army .. they love the haircut. bald or buzz! I got out of the navy in 1989. have not cut my hair since!! (true story). these “gun guys” are a club. it’s sickening going into a gun store. it really is a “compensating”.. I have several guns.. ALL purchased on the blac… free.. market.

  3. I know a lot of things in peoples possessions are illegal in this country. Just do not let the pigs know you got it is all. Move swell out there.

  4. The first guy that uses a weapon with one of these in it as self defense after they deem them illegal ,is going to get hung by an non legitimate court
    Enforcing rules or laws they don’t have

    Maybe just save them for when we really need them ?
    No sense playing into their hands
    It’s when they don’t know how many and who has them , that works in our benefit
