Testify Against BATFE? Expect Revenge

One of the more curious stories you'll ever see.

The BATFE has arrested a weapon-conversion-kit.

You read that correctly. Not a person.

A kit.

Background: Savage designs NFA-related items. This one enables the owner of a lawful NFA firearm to convert it to a different caliber. BATFE originally ruled that the item was not a firearm, let alone an NFA one; it was a conversion kit. After Len gave some expert testimony in several cases against the agency, it reversed its ruling and held that the kit was an NFA firearm. Now it's pursuing forfeiture of it.

The linked story at OfArms fills you in a bit. Even the US Attorney can't restrain herself on this one.
