For other rifles, such as the SCAR 16 and SCAR17S, the serialized part is the upper receiver.
On a Ruger Mark series pistol, the barrel is the serialized part.
I don't think the author realized that this depends on the weapon.
"Assault Weapon" is the term made-up by gun-control spin doctors.
"Assault Rifle" is a US military term for a fighting rifle in intermediate caliber (not pistol, not long action) capable of full-auto and/or burst fire.
AR-15 is (as you know) not an Assault Rifle.
M4 is an Assault Rifle.
They function differently, but to most folks, they appear exactly the same. This is how gun-control types inject fear, uncertainty and doubt into the debate.
The GCA banned the manufacture of transferable "machine guns" made after May '86.
The GCA, therefore reduces the supply-side of the equation for transferable full-autos. Transferable M-16s cost in excess of $10,000, plus the $200 excise tax to transfer them from one owner to the next.
An individual may legally own a full-auto capable weapon provided that they pass the strict NFA (National Firearms Act) requirements and that the weapon was made before May of '86.
What information leads you to this conclusion?
It's possible that you feel this way because it gives you an "out" for falling for the facade that Libertarians warned Democrats about prior to electing him.
Their end goal is not to produce plastic guns, but to show the futility of restricting guns.
An idea can be both weapon and expression. As a free individual, I have a right to both.
Senator Rand Paul, a Republican presidential candidate who has made opposition to overbroad surveillance central to his platform, tweeted: “The phone records of law abiding citizens are none of the NSA’s business! Pleased with the ruling this morning.”
How fast would his attitude towards surveillance change if were elected president?
Are you suggesting that it's best to elect someone who loves overly broad surveillance and despises the 4th amendment?
700 Watts? Time to increase to 260 Kilowatts. It should be hard to ignore 250-300 HP results.
Either way, the result should be entertaining.
Because every example you just posted could be completed with a 4 ounces and $20 of electronics or less.
If it were otherwise, a government office could rent or borrow property from a private citizen and thereby censor the public's speech on that property.
There is precedent here. Take for example a state office censoring citizens' comments from their Facebook page is unconstitutional censorship. Lawsuits have been won on this doctrine.
1> I have no idea that the BB gun isn't a real gun.
2> Regardless of the criminal's words, I have no knowledge of their real intentions or capabilities beyond what they present to me.
3> I can't take their word that they only want my money, since they've already shown (by threatening my life) that they value life below property.
except it's the selfish assholes who equip themselves to guard what they have against anybody else getting it. The selfish assholes survive because they have the keys to the grain silo, everybody else (read: who hasn't got a copy of the key) can go die in a field. Selfish asshole (=selfish gene) survives, the meek inherit the Earth. From six feet beneath it.
Help me understand why it's selfish to protect your stuff but it's compassionate to give away someone else's.
