    Yep, covers the 80% complete receivers.

    And calls them "semiautomatic assault weapons" all over the place and includes handguns and shotguns:
    And then there's this:

    And Henry Waxman who introduced this horrible bill. Lots of other things besides the firearms ban in there too.

    I had no idea that there was an epidemic of DIY assault rifle building murders intent of killing mostly children. And to think I almost got swayed into their ilk.

    Thank you Democratic party, you saved my life!

    So stupid.

    Notice the wuss friction states they are from. They have a voter given right to eff up their own state as they have but I hope this one gets hammered like the last. I wonder how many of the sponsors are up for re-election in 2014. I will bet none of them are that stupid. But we can hope they want to give the voter enough rope.... And of course we know our lovely D reps will fall right in to the party line.

    I still don't get why they have such a raging hard on for a weapon set that kills the fewest number of people. I'm starting to believe they have an ulterior motive.

    >> an ulterior motive.
    Yes. These receivers are not serial #d so banning them ensures that every rifle in this category made in the future will have a serial number and be easier to police (and eventually confiscate if that is your goal). Furthermore it sets a federal precedent for regulation of semi-automatic rifles (even if these are not rifles yet) that may be used in future court/legislative battles.

    THIS MUST NOT PASS.

    Of course they have an ulterior motive. They know that these alone even the odds a bit if they choose to confiscate by force. Like somebody said on the forum earlier; Stone Axe Simple, A Caveman Could Use It. When the Constitutionalists win in the end... these bubblegummers should be deported.

    Should we expect a run on the stuff mentioned in the bill, like "pistol threaded barrels capable of receiving suppressors"?

    I'll start to worry about it, once it actually gets reported to the actual committee. Otherwise, it is just like getting worked up over people making posts regarding ammo shortages.

    Won't stop me fro writing my House Reps, but you can't scream the sky is falling all the time. Only 11% ever pass committee.

    It appears that the Santa Monica shooter used an 80% lower and that is what they are using as their justification. We better make noise to our reps or this could pass since there is a recent event involving the objects in question (I initially thought there was never an event involving an 80% lower).

    I really hate it when idiots do bubblegum like this and make us all look bad. One guy and we all get our rights trampled on.

    Whats irritating is they just make up thier own definition for an "assault rifle" because those bubblegum nuggets cant get it right.
    Is there really a "machine gun epidemic"? If so, can I get one?
    These people are parasites, scum.

    So if the guy used a framing hammer we should ban all hammers exceeding a 12" length because no civilian needs that much leverage capacity.
