Feds' War on Guns Continues

Let's face the facts. The Second Amendment was not written for hunters. And it was not written exclusively to protect the right to self-defense.

It was written to allow citizens to overthrow the Government, if necessary.

But just because there IS a Second Amendment doesn't mean that the Government has to like it. After all, they recognize threats to their personal comforts and authority.

So--one simply eviscerates the 2A by other means.

ATF gets that, and re-defines "manufacture" of guns, thus opening the door to simply shutting down the industry which manufactures guns.

Comments an attorney who is very familiar with the issues:

How they reconcile with the GCA 68 definition of firearm as the receiver (so that manufacture = making the receiver) is beyond me. By their definition, a person who assembles receivers to other components is also a manufacturer, as is a gunsmith who regularly sporterizes military guns into hunting rifles

That's the point, of course.
