Another Would-Be Gun Grab

This has been all over for the last week or two:
The regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements. Chief among them is a renewed effort to keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable or have been convicted of domestic abuse.
Yeah, the administration wants to disarm you, but we knew that. My question is this: What's a high-powered pistol?

Maybe one of those cut-down AR's I'm thinking. The ATF could define them as SBRs and demand they be turned in. Of course the owners could simply put on a longer barrel and a stock and voila! the "pistol" is now a rifle.

Still, anybody know for sure or will this be kept secret as long as possible to prevent people pointing out any obvious flaws and making Barry and the boys start all over again.

Much as I think it'd be cool if there were a .416 Barrett barrel available for the Thompson Center pistol frame, I wouldn't want to pull the trigger on it. I do wonder what the hottest chambering is you can get. Right off, I'm finding 7-30 Waters, and 45-70, for the Contender, and 30-06 for the Encore.

Probably some crazy folks out there with chamber reamers doing bigger stuff than those.

There's a video out there of some fellow firing a Thompson in 600 Nitro Express.

He survived the experience.
