A Hand For The ATFU?

Via Say Uncle I've discovered that the ATFU wants my thumbs. For a start:

"Because the thumb will allow the rifle to fire more than one round with a single pull of the opposite hand it is a machine gun and subject to the National Firearms Act of 1934 and Gun Control Act of 1968."

I admit it was funny when I first read it but I can't help but think there isn't some agent in some regional office boneheaded enough to try to implement part of such a policy. All I can say is they can take my thumbs when they pry them from my cold dead hands.

They'll just try to put an outrageous tax on them, like on suppressors and full-auto firearms...
