    Am I reading this correctly?
    Just to summarize, "If it's made in Oregon (not the store), you can have it without Federal regulation/taxation/registration etc?"

    Does this mean we can have cheaper (no stamp tax) silencers/suppressors and ammunition? :thumbup:
    From what I gather if it is made here, then there is no (known) tax at a federal level?
    Obviously as stated on Section 3, 2-D that full-auto is not applicable. :(

    Sorry if this has already been talked about I did not notice a thread on the issue.


    EDIT- Link fixed.

    I hate to be the one to rain on anybody's parade, but even if it passes there's little chance of this bill changing anything. What company do you think would want to be the test case in the Federal courts. Bills like this one and similar bills passed in other states are symbolic. That is OK and I like the message it sends to the Feds, but don't look for things to change any time soon.

    Give that assessment, how is it any different than how the federal government feels about states that legalize marijuana then? States say it's is legal, and the feds say no, and yet people are still doing what the law (of that state) allows.

    Does not the tenth amendment apply?

    I think more people ought to be on-board with personal responsibility, this way we can have the things we are entitled towards (while maintaining responsibility).

    In the unlikely event this bill passes, who volunteers to test it? :p

    There's a huge difference between how the Fed views marijuana rights and how it views gun rights. While they may turn a blind eye towards medical marijuana or making possession of small amounts misdemeanors, which I agree with BTW, they view firearms rights as a danger to Federal power and authority. The stoners aren't likely to rise up to confront a tyrannical Govt. as long as they get their weed.

    The Firearms Freedoms Acts are completely symbolic - that's why legislators are passing them (and chuckling to themselves about the gun vote). Ask any lawyer. The chance of the Supreme Court overturning the Commerce Clause for this act is exactly zero.

    You could probably use a Firearm Freedoms Act as wallpaper in your jail cell though, so it does have some use. :laugh:

    It has already passed here in Idaho and nobody has actually tried to put it to use yet. They don't want to deal with the ATF.
