And the Deep State judge cancelled the case (essentially) because the figured it would go to the Supreme Court and they would STOMP on the Blue State infringements on the right to make, and keep, and bear arms.
From my reading, the prosecutor dropped the charges and plea bargain one charge, not the judge. . . Because the ATF&E didnt want the judges decision to continue which would have ruled in the defendants favor that they were technically firearms due to not meeting the legal definition as written in the law, resulting in 90% of semiautomatic firearms also being covered under the same defect in the laws explicit definition of a firearm receiver! They could not afford having that precedent.
