DOJ: AR-15 not inherently military
« on: July 11, 2018, 12:44:01 am »
"...the government expressly acknowledges that non-automatic firearms up to .50-caliber – including modern semi-auto sporting rifles such as the popular AR-15 and similar firearms – are not inherently military."

I seriously doubt this will make it to the nightly news.

    Too bad there wasn't a ruling that "military guns" aren't protected by the second amendment like .... "non" military guns are ....    ;)

    Precisely. Classify the devices whichever way you like, but the only thing our forefathers were clear on is that free people are armed.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Here is attorney Alan Gura's take on the DOJ fold on the issue of gun making software - both "printing" and CNC.

    You can take my CNC machine from my cold, dead, hands.

    'Course, I need to get one first, but once I have one, it's miiiine, motherfluffer.

    Attempting to control human behavior through banning inanimate objects is doomed to failure from the onset.
    Didn't work with booze.
    Doesn't work with drugs.
    Won't work with firearms.

    May as well order the tide back.
