Default Lower receiver ban?

https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/...m_medium=email

Before you all hate, there is a link on the site to read the bill. Cliffs notes: ban lower receivers and parts kits.


Fu !

How much you want for it? Price is required in the marketplace.

This isn't an effort to ban lower receivers in general.

They want to ban 80% lowers. These are unfinished castings that require milling to be functional. Due to the way the law is written you can buy an 80% lower, mill it and complete your rifle and it will never require a serial number. The 80% lower can even be shipped in the mail like any other item until you finish it.

it is quite a bit of work to finish off a lower. Moreover, to do it right, it really can't be done with hand tools. I know there are youtube videos of it being done with a drill press, but it came out pretty lousy looking.

If someone has the means to professionally mill out an 80% lower, they probably have the means to make one from a block of aluminum.

Kind of stupid to try and ban them IMO.

Exactly.

Just another bill that is trying to ban something they don't understand. Same with the "assault" weapons bans and their attempts to ban the .50BMG rifles. Completely ridiculous and will only affect law abiding citizens.
