Shotguns come in various sizes with lots of options. You can get a 12 gauge, 20 gauge, add a tactical stock, laser and lots more, at least for now. If the ATF has its way, you might get arrested for owning what is primarily the most used weapon for home defense.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms wants to redefine a shotgun to limit American citizens from owning powerful weapons or what they are referring to as “military” weapons. This redefining came in the form of a recent study by the ATF, which has its roots in the Gun Control Act of 1968.
