Sounds nice, but this now puts the Feds at an advantage over state and local in firepower.
That’s what I’m thinking. The US isn’t the sole manufacturer of NATO weapons and ammunition. If these manufacturers were smart, they would make and distribute weapons and ammo in standard calibers, and distribute them up to the state level LEO’s only, (i.e. hunting and US common handgun calibers). But the point is moot, because at the first sign of resistance or teouble, the feds will either commandeer their manufacturing operation, or destroy it.
These states weren't going to be very helpful against the Feds, anyway.
For every second that goes by since the passage of the 1986 gun control act, you and all the citizens of this country have been placed at a distinct disadvantage to every military and law enforcement entity in the country, to include the epa, forest service, park service etc.
By strictly limiting the sale or purchase of machine guns by citizens to those manufactured before 1986. A very finite number, that at some date in the future will make machince guns illegal as the supply dries up.
THE NFA needs to be repealed before GI Joe is rendered (no pun intended) null and void. Legal small arms sales to government should also be allowed to those who are the government, and if you don’t understand the position, refer to the founding documents that comprise the supreme law of the land.
...and speaking of picking winners and losers, anyone like to speculate on the price of a Thompson Submachine gun in todays world had the NFA not been drawn up because gangsters were killing gangsters. How about an MP5 in every garage had the 1986 law not been passed.
Anyone like to wax poetic on just where the NRA was hiding when both pieces of Legislation were reacking havoc with “shall not be infringed”. Oh the hugh manitee.
