Shoestring classified as a Machine Gun

By the BATFE (apparently they've added Explosives to Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms - guess they're still trying to monopolize all the fun in life).

Why? Because any part designed to be part of a machine gun counts as a machine gun. And you can use a shoestring with some loops to hold down the trigger of a gun. Guess that makes it a dangerous weapon. We must stop these looped strings - think of the children!

Here's the letter from the BATFE, via JPFO (Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership). If you haven't encountered them, JPFO is one of the most ardent gun supporting organizations, because they emotionally translate Holocaust bitterness into a belief in the importance of self-defense. Which is not so unreasonable, but leads to rather...um...intense feelings.
