So I think the question is if there is no mechanism in place by the time that training requirement goes into effect, how will any dealers follow the guidelines?We run women-only training. We've wrestled with the 1639 training issue. The #1 biggest problem right now is there is no mechanism for us to certify completion, and therefore no way for dealers to verify completion before the sale. The 2nd biggest problem is there are no specific guidelines for curricula. Any class delivered right now cannot be certified. And any class delivered right now might be invalidated the moment guidance is released.
And worse, if legislators never quite get around to producing guidance, all the gun owners here will, in essence, be prohibited from buying guns. And dealers are going to have huge holes in their cash flow.
I certainly hope so. Because that may be the only way anyone can buy after July 1. It is all well and good for Sheriffs to say they won't comply right now, but we'll see what that means after July 1 w/o the mechanism to certify compliance.I would think if it was the latter and otherwise legal firearms sales in the state were suspended due to the state lacking infrastructure that would be grounds for a lawsuit.
The FFL. If the state cites the FFL for insufficient compliance with 1639 the state has the burden of proof on the violation. The practical consideration for the FFL is the cost of disputing the citation (or whatever enforcement tool is used).Who is to say that it IS?
The training portion pertains only to semi-automatic rifles, correct.Not to thread jack, but I read the advertisement from the link and it states “anyone who wants to purchase a semiautomatic rifle”
Is 1639 limited to semiauto rifles only? That was not my understanding.
I’ll have to reread it to tell for sure.The training portion pertains only to semi-automatic rifles, correct.
A lower is transferred as “other” and not subjected to the semi-auto (assault weapon) definitions in the law.I’ll have to reread it to tell for sure.
Completed lowers are not rifles they are “other”
So... buy a AR lower and upper separate and you’re in the clear? Unlikely, but that would be a nice hiccup in their plans.
