That gun was non-scary when my wife bought it, having plain wood furniture.

 

The gun grabbers in Washington want to call it an "assault weapon" along with my dad's old tube-fed .22 because once you have a scary catch-phrase like "assault weapon" the game becomes: how many different guns can we put that label on and ban them?

 

As usual, the "gun violence" statistics they trot out to justify this nonsense are mostly suicides.

 

Then gun nutz come along and say, "You want to call ordinary .22 rifles "assault weapons" and ban them because of suicides? How stupid is that?" This is an indication of our stubborn refusal to enact reasonable gun control.

 

Whose "stubborn refusal'?

What "reasonable gun control'?

Please clarify, and continue.

 

 

Ours.

 

Calling ordinary .22 semi-autos "assault weapons" and banning them.

 

I don't know how to make it more clear. I see nothing reasonable about calling an old tube-fed .22 that holds 14 rounds an "assault weapon" and banning it. I see nothing reasonable about calling the furniture change on my wife's rifle a change to an "assault weapon."

 

Is .22 really as scary as .223?

 

considering more powerful rounds used in hunting rifles, why is 223 even considered scary?

You can buy a sawed off shotgun in some states. You just have to jump through a bunch of hoops and pay the $200 tax.

 

I doubt Cali is one of those states. Not sure if they're allowed to have hacksaws out there.

 

non restricted in canada, as it's factory made.

 

not available in the usa, as it's a norinco.

On assault type rifles, the California compliant requires a max size magazine of 10 rounds and the magazine ejection button is gone and the magazine needs a tool or the tip of a projectile to push the ejection rod in. Helps prevent rapid reloading. Do handguns have similar rules?


That sounds like the last generation of stupid semi auto laws. Bullet buttons are now bad. What is happening now with an ar to have a low capacity detachable mag you need to pull the takedown pin and split the upper and lower before the mag will drop out. No pistol grips so the butt stock is now a featureless rifle stock and the buffer tube is separate.
Other than microstamping and testing I don't think there are any changes to handgun laws.
That too bad. At least in my area, the ar's still come with a 30 round mag, pistol grip and all the other standard features.

There were bills being tabled to change that for you. Last i checked there was going to be a mag capacity change and a few "you can't put that on" rules. Not sure if they ever went thru. If I remember right it had to do with a new governor?

I would have thought that the instruments you ripped out of OR had a load cell. Ask around it might be in a bin of parts.

I seem to remember that the load cells were DOA a few years ago (at least they were the few times I was on board).  I don't expect that their condition has improved with time.

You mean sitting salt encrusted in a box doesn't magically make them work again?
