Exactly. This will come down to two choices if this “rule” gets approved: do you register your AR pistols with ATF and essentially bow down to this administration or do you say “to hell with them” and don’t comply?If the current admin gets their way there will be zero legal private firearms ownership. They would do it in one shot if they thought they could get away with it. Instead they will try the salami technique, one small slice at a time, until it is all gone. That may work. That is, IMHO, one reason they want to pack the Supreme Court. For practical purposes the Constitution says what the Supreme Court says it says. Actual meaning or original intent does not matter to people with an agenda.
Because no matter what, this won’t be the end of this kind of thing from the Biden administration.
