BATF raid on Polymer80 on Dec 10, 2020

Posting the above article because some in the media are misstating the BATF raid on Polymer80's manufacturing facility as a turn in policy to be against 80% lowers, etc. As the above article explains, the raid was specifically an investigation of the "Buy Build Shoot Kit" for a handgun, and not 80% AR15 lowers. The kit as sold includes all components necessary to build a complete handgun with the 80% handgun frame.
The investigation focused primarily on the company’s “Buy Build Shoot Kit,” which includes an 80% finished handgun frame and the components necessary to assemble that frame into a complete Polymer80 handgun, according to WSJ, which cited an ATF warrant. The agency determined that the set sold together meets the definition of a firearm and thereby would require a background check for purchasing, WSJ reported.

...The agency previously approved Polymer80’s frames for sale, but the kits themselves were not submitted for ATF approval, WSJ reported.
You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time...and those are pretty good odds.
