Just logged into the ATF eforms website just to realize I've had the tax stamp for my form 1 suppressor sitting since 4 July with no notification.

Just another FYI.  People in places that have gone to $15/hour, like Seattle, have begun asking for reduced work hours because the increased wages are starting to cost them benefits.  They actual amount of useful $ or equivalent coming through the door is higher earning less and getting more handouts than earning more....

Here's a fundamental fact that people pushing for a "living wage" be that $15/hour or whatever should keep in mind.  People will only pay for labor when it costs less than capital investment.  In other words, you'll only keep your job as long as you're cheaper than the robots.  The price of robotic automation technology has gone down by orders of magnitude in the last decade.  If you suddenly double the price of labor tomorrow, in a few short years the majority will be replaced by automated systems.

People have already designed automated systems that cook and put together hamburgers so the tech is out there. And not only will the tech be cheaper, but it will probably be better with a lower error rate and no bad attitude so after the switch, going back to labor probably wouldn't be feasible.
I for one look forward to the automated burger flippers.  At least maybe they'll get my order right >50% of the time....
