And if it is a destructive device, doesn’t it require a Class III license? Chuck Voigtsberger Ventura, California You are correct. Sadly, I should’ve researched it a little further. The WWII Boys Anti Tank rifle in .55 Boys must be registered with the ATF as a Class III destructive device with a $200 tax stamp. However, if it is converted to .50 BMG, it then becomes a Class I rifle, thus the reason so many are converted here.—Jeff John my company sent me to the Concord area on business, and I spent my free time looking up historical sites. It was early in the morning when I went to the site of that battle, the sun was barely up, a foggy mist was rising off the river. The original bridge had long ago been replaced with a replica and markers. I will never forget the stillness of that morning, a slight breeze, hearing only some birds. It was an eerie feeling as I stood on the bridge and looked across thru the fog, a chill ran thru me, and in my mind I could see and hear those men confronting each other. Of all the places I had visited, that one has stuck with me all these years. Thanks, John, for a great article, and letting me relive that experience.

He expressed my sentiments perfectly, and you vindicated yourself by printing it. After reading Mr. Codrea’s January column I was very tempted to cancel my subscription; instead, I’ll just skip the “Rights Watch” section until Mr. Codrea no longer writes it. I’m a gun owner and a great admirer of the Second Amendment, but I hate political propaganda, and that seems to be all Mr. Codrea is capable of writing. I think your readers would be much better served if the “Rights Watch” column were written by a constitutional scholar rather than a political activist. Mr. Codrea doesn’t inform me of challenges to my second amendment rights, he spews propaganda, and because of that he shouldn’t be allowed to write for your fine magazine.
