Congressional candidate cuts AR-15, possibly makes illegal SBR (VIDEO) (81 hits)

Karen Mallard, one of a crowded field of challengers competing for Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District — a seat currently held by a Republican — posted a video to social media Wednesday in which she takes a grinder to her husband’s AR-15 rifle and slices away the front part of the handguard and barrel.

Mallard prefaced the act by saying she did not want the gun in her house and, after the student speeches in the days after the Parkland school shooting, did not want the gun in anyone’s home. Post-grinding, Mallard said she is joining Moms Demand Action and intends to make gun reform a “top priority” if elected.

That’s a lot of stuff going on in a two-minute video.

As numerous individuals pointed out to Mallard on social media once the clip was circulated, many of which she dismissed as “NRA trolls,” the act of creating a short barreled rifle with a barrel less than 16-inches long is strictly regulated under the National Firearms Act.

Those seeking to convert an existing firearm into a SBR need to first submit a Form 1 to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives along with the required tax payment which then has to be approved, a process that can take months. Possession of an unregistered NFA item is a felony. The clip ends with the abbreviated barrel still attached to a receiver that was not destroyed in line with ATF specifications.
