    Parts kit builds assembled in WA would count towards that as well.

    I'm into building Sterling "SMG's" now, I'm going to have one for each hand and foot by the time I'm done!

    The article is wrong AFAIK. I'm fairly sure the NRA has nothing to do with these Firearms Freedom bills. They were first introduced by Gary Marbut in Montana, and they are basically symbolic gestures that are obviously not binding on the Feds and have no practical impact.

    There was a lawsuit against the Feds at one point but Gary's website hasn't been updated for ages.

    Colt is now making match grade carbines and rifles in Oregon so the could have a "Made in Oregon" stamp. With Novenske and Nosler and others Oregon would stand to save tax revenue by passing a bill like this one.

    Lets get the Oregon legislature to put a bill like this on the table for this year.

    Again, this bill is just pandering. Never been tested in fed court and a long list of similar losses from the states. The Commerce Clause effectively nullifies this type of bill and has for decades.
