In your inﬁnite wisdom, you outlawed bayonet lugs, ﬂash hiders, and collapsible stocks. In over forty years of being a ﬁrearm and tool mark examiner, I have never seen these components inﬂict any injury whatsoever on any person. In your inﬁnite wisdom, you outlawed fully automatic ﬁrearms that have the capability of ﬁring a single shot. Ladies and gentlemen, I really need help with that one.
[I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who is baffled and confused by the actions of our elected representatives. There is a large group of people who are completely uneducated regarding firearms and this includes the people attempting to legislate our rights away.
