After I posted a piece on the TSA auction of confiscated blades at The Truth About Knives, eagle-eyed readers searched the govdeals.com site and discovered that Maury County Tennessee’s finest are auctioning off “assault rifles” through govdeals.com. The site offers not one but two—count ’em two!—LE-marked Colt M4s and a Mitchell Arms Mac 90 [MAK 90]. M4? Full auto? Nope. “No class 3 weapons are being auctioned.” Anyway, neither the Colts nor the Yugoslavian AK are California compliant. There’s also this little gem in the site’s Q & A . . .
Q: does requiring a background check to purchase this weapon infringe on my 2nd amendment rights as an american? (3/12/13 12:46 PM)
A: NO (3/12/13 1:44 PM)
Just in case you were wondering.
