That’s about the size of it, yep.

  1. And this is why every gun owner, including the FUDDs, needs to push back against the BATF.

    I already live in an AWB (“assault weapon” ban) state, so people have asked me, “Why are you so against a Federal ‘assault weapon’ ban, when you don’t own any of the guns they propose banning?”

    One of my answers (among many other reasons for being opposed to an AWB) is that the definition of “assault weapon” is vague and constantly shifting. What’s considered a FUDD gun today could be classified as an “assault weapon” tomorrow. For example, bolt-action precision rifles (chassis rifles, especially) often “look like” an AR-15 or AR-10, so I can easily imagine the Feds expanding the definition of “assault weapons” so much that they do the following:

    1) Bann all precision rifles/chassis rifles that look like an AR-15 or AR-10 (because the main thing that makes politicians define an AR-15 as an “assault weapon” is its “scary-looking” looks), and/or
    2) Ban all pistol grips and buttstocks that fit on precision rifles/chassis rifles, because those same pistol grips and buttstocks can also fit a “scary-looking” AR-15.

    Plus there’s always a chance that if politicians get emboldened by passing another ban on so-called “assault weapons”, they’ll follow up by banning so-called “sniper rifles.” For example, they might declare that any bolt-action rifle with a scope is a “sniper rifle” and ban it. Or maybe they’ll call lever-action rifles “cowboy assault weapons”. Don’t laugh — we’ve seen this before with the AWB and New York State’s “SAFE Act.”

    • Stuck in New Jersey…..you can count on it. It’s layered demonization in the Useful Idiots’ minds; layered registration; layered banning; followed by layered confiscation, followed by layered genocide. Same formula throughout the ages. Different faces; different tyrants; same play; same end game. History….learn from it; be doomed to re-live it; or die by it.

    • Assault Rifle is clearly defined as a rifle type firearm chambered for an intermediate cartridge, that is less powerful than the service rifle cartridge, but more powerful than the service pistol cartridge, and has selective fire capability. Clear enough, isn’t it As for the Assault
      Weapon, it appears that those individuals and or organizations intent on banning the things are unable or unwilling to actually define them. One wonders as to why.

  2. I’ve lived in CA for over 30 years. Nothing, not just guns, is legal here. You cannot be a law abiding citizen in this fascist hell hole.

    I quit trying years ago. When I need to buy or carry a gun I do so.

      • That is amazing, I turned 18 in 1964, I cannot imagine how many boxes of .22 lr I had purchased by then, my Mom was paying for it but had no idea where or how to buy it. She could outshoot me, though, learned as a kid on a bolt with a bent barrel, a straight barrel got her all giggly it was so easy when I let her try.

    • except pot. pot is legal there… as long as you don’t want to parktake and own firearms at the same time.

  3. I’m doing exactly what you said. :
    No, ,,, evidently I am not.

    I ask yee, Why does my government want me disarmed?
    Enemies both foreign and domestic.

    Why does my government want me disarmed?

  4. This the law so what’s your interpretation?

    Section:1
    “In promulgating your esoteric cogitations, or articulating your superficial sentimentalities and amicable, philosophical or psychological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosity. Let your conversational communications possess a clarified conciseness, a compact comprehensibleness, coalescent consistency, and a concatenated cogency. Eschew all conglomerations of flatulent garrulity, jejune babblement and asinine affectations. Let your extemporaneous descantings and unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility and veracious vivacity, without rhodomontade or thrasonical bombast. Sedulously avoid all polysyllabic profundity, pompous prolixity, psittaceous vacuity, ventriloquial verbosity and vaniloquent vapidity. Shun double-entendres, purient pscosity, and pestiferous profanity, obscurant or apparent.

    • 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Fuck I love it. I fancy myself a bit of a linguist, so that’s right up my alley! That reads like a passage from T.S. Elliott’s “The Waste Land,” which I’ve loathed ever since I first read it 16 years ago. It’s perfect! In fact, you should be offered a job writing legislation, you’d be at the apex of the Post-Modern Word Salad Fuckwit Guild in record time!

    • As if straight from the Department of Redundancy Department. Well done, sir!

  5. Bad laws drive out respect for good. There are MILLIONS of these legal pistols out there. All criminalizing them will do is lead to mass noncompliance. If you’ll go to jail for the brace, you might as well either sell it or put a real stock on it.

    • As I have pointed out in earlier posts. Its not the politicians or the courts by which Our Rights including Our 2A Rights will be Turned Asunder. It will be by and from the Bureaucratic Complex. Unknown Acolytes under the Control of Unknown Elites who desire to Control Our Nation regardless of the Good or Ill they perpetrate on the Citizenry. In many ways this has been and continues to be a successful strategy because “We the People” have the mistaken belief that by voting “We” have a say in how Our Government is ran. This hasn’t been the case for many generations. The Bureaucratic complex was set up by politicians on both sides as a mechanism by which they could enact “Regulations” without the oversight of the Citizenry and thus not be scrutinized during election cycles. To put it plainly it Is “Regulation Without Representation”. A first cousin to Taxation Without Representation which an entire War was fought over. Keep Your Powder Dry.

      • First American Revolution over taxation without representation.
        Second American Revolution of taxation by representation……
        and a whole plethora of other tyrannical acts.

  6. I’ve noted elsewhere that Lewis Carroll wrote about the BATFE in 1871, in his book Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. Of course, not knowing at the time what the BATFE would be called, he made up a name for it–Humpty Dumpty. He (Carroll, that is,) wrote:

    “When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

    ’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

    ’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.”
