There is a new proposed federal gun bill in the House.
H.R 2910 says that it seeks to ban the sale and possession of 80% lower receivers for semi-auto rifles. An 80% receiver is not considered a firearm and still requires some basic machine work before it is ready to be used in the build of a gun.
80% receivers require machine work. If you have a machine shop, you can make a gun anyway. You don’t need a parts kit. Parts kits just make it easier to make guns. It’s what hobbyists do, and what folks who like to build their own as a hobby do.
The Democrats and the left’s objective is to make all guns illegal except for the ones they point at you. But for anyone who would actually like something like this to practically work, and doesn’t believe in reeducation camps in the southwest and extermination of dissidents, keep this in mind:
The benefit of such receivers is that if you buy one and complete the work yourself, there is no need for the gun to have a serial number as long as it remains in your possession for personal use. It’s sort of a loophole in the current serial number requirement laws.
The benefit is you get to build it yourself. No serial numbers is incidental, but not terribly important.
It’s sort of like building a computer from parts. You can go on Newegg or Tigerdirect and buy all the parts you need, then it’s up to you to assemble it. If you know computers and have some tools, it’s not difficult to do.
In the case of 80% receivers or AK receiver flats, you still need a lot of machine tools to make a gun. And a gun without a serial number is hardly a “loophole”. For decades and decades, guns in the US had no need for serial numbers. Those who buy older guns often find this to be the case. While most manufacturers put serial numbers on for their own reasons, plenty did not (especially true with old shotguns).
Perhaps what’s most interesting is what DailyCaller missed in the bill – definitions:
(3) the term ‘semiautomatic assault weapon’ means–
(A) a semiautomatic rifle or semiautomatic shotgun that has the capacity to accept a detachable ammunition magazine; or
That’s it. Now every long gun with a removable magazine is a semiautomatic assault weapon.
A Ruger 10/22 can accept a detachable magazine. This standard plinker across the whole US is to them, and will be under HR 2910, a “semiautomatic assault weapon”:
Fudds, they’re coming for you, too.
The objective is to ban all guns. They will not stop.
The anti-rights leftist gun-grabber movement will always push for tyranny, and will not stop.
