Comment From a European perspective (Score 2) 302 302

The proposotion sounds like a mask for lowering the standards. Sweden is already in this path. Results droop and they cannot admit the real reason because of politics. So the culprit must be the system. Everyone suffers and the esteem of educational institutions drop when they MUST take and pass students of ... let's say, lesser capabilities, in name of multiculturalism. USA is fast becoming a social democratic european style hellhole.

By US law. In other parts of the world the definition of "gun" varies. In Finland for example, there is no definition of "gun" in the law. In Finland, the "gun" is its serial number. There are vague definitions of gun parts. So, any single part is not a "gun" but some parts that either touch the cartridge when the gun goes off, or are "under pressure", or touch parts that fall under former categories, are "gun parts" and need a permission. But not always: a Mosin bolt is not a restricted part... but an MP5 trigger housing is. It's the wookie defence equivalent of legislation.
