I agree on that point to the extent that laws and regulations should be consistent, predictable, evidence-supported, and clearly/accurately defined. There shouldn't be any room for surprises or confusion.

Probably going to remain an uphill battle getting even good laws past the gun lobby.
I love that the name is so clearly evocative of mass chaos and destruction and people are wondering why it got an extra helping of negative attention. "Why did my Mass Disembowler 4001 patent get me put on a watchlist?" grouses suburban psychopath. "I could do so much more damage with my hunting rifle!"Take the Street Sweeper shotgun in late 80's , early 90's
It is considered a destructive device despite not really being good and reloading is slow as you have to individualyl load shells. Capacity is 10 rounds. Meanwhile I can acquire a saiga semi auto with a detachable drum that can hold 30 rounds and that is perfectly fine and legal, nevermind the greater destruction I can potentially cause with the saiga, yet the Street Sweeper is a destructive device under the NFA. Can you explain why? It makes no sense.
