Modernized Undetectable Firearms Bill Would Outlaw Glocks, Many Rifles

http://www.ammoland.com/2017/03/modernized-undetectable-firearms-bill-outlaw-glocks-many-ar-clones/#axzz4azAfZK8N

Senator Nelson from Florida has filed a restrictive bill that would stifle innovation and experimentation, without significantly impacting terrorists or criminals. Interestingly, a complete exemption would be included for the U.S. government and agencies. The bill is titled the “Undetectable Firearms Modernization Act of 2017“.

(snip)

Currently, the first part of the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 is this: (1) It shall be unlawful for any person to manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer, or receive any firearm— (A) that, after removal of grips, stocks, and magazines, is not as detectable as the Security Exemplar, by walk-through metal detectors calibrated and operated to detect the Security Exemplar;

The Nelson bill would change that paragraph to this, bold added for emphasis: (1) It shall be unlawful for any person to manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer, or receive any firearm— (A) that, after removal of all parts other than a major component, is not as detectable as the Security Exemplar, by walk-through metal detectors calibrated and operated to detect the Security Exemplar;

If you remove *all parts* other than a major component, only a major component is left to detect. Words mean things in the law, and the phrase in bold is not equivalent to “all parts other than all major components”, even though the difference is only two letters. Such a requirement would outlaw all composite frames on the market today. Glock frames and most Glock type frames would be outlawed. Virtually all composite AR type lower receivers would be outlawed. The law could be a sneak attack or simply a result of ignorance on the part of Senator Nelson and the other famously anti-Second Amendment co-sponsors.

11. Yup this is so stupid this shit was debunked in the 1980's

Ted Kennedy started a lot of this bullshit by calling it undetectable. Which was funny because his bodyguard got caught inside the capitol building with Glocks so Obviously it could be detected in the 80's technology

10. Yep, Charter Arms Southpaw

 

?width=381px&height=279px

Charter Arms ain't in the same league as S&W, but it is a serviceable firearm. Hell Chapman killed Lennon with a Charter Arms .38, turning the Fab-Four into One-down, Three-to-go

4. THIS

stupid malarkey again?
Someone remind them to make sure to include cop killer bullets and 30 round machine guns while they are at it.
That's it, dim-wits, push more gun control. Push it hard, and push it loud... and we will watch your left side antics die on the vine in the mid-terms.

17. Wonder of my Remington Nylon 66 will be illegal?

Even the receiver is made from that "new" wonder plastic, "Zytel".

I have one in Mohawk Brown and Apache Black. Still looking for a Seneca Green one.
