    Lastly, SCOTUS decided in United States v. Thompson/Center Arms Co. (91-0164), 504 U.S. 505 (1992) that having a bunch of parts together that make up an SBR (or other NFA item) do NOT violate the NFA.
    "The court ruled in Thompson Center Arms' favor in that the carbine conversion kit did not constitute a short-barreled rifle, primarily because the kit contained both the stock and the 16-inch barrel."

    For the Amador case, if I remember right it was dismissed. But that was 10 years ago.

    For the SCOTUS case that throws out any constructive intent (and most possession issues) I literally included the link to the SCOTUS opinion.
    What is my joy if all hands, even the unclean, can reach into it? What is my wisdom, if even the fools can dictate to me? What is my freedom, if all creatures, even the botched and impotent, are my masters? What is my life, if I am but to bow, to agree and to obey?

    The question, even though it was dismissed. How much money did it cost the defendant ?
