Just another sign of the path our country is on, the Harris administration just filed a friend of the court brief in favor of warrant-less search and seizure.  It blows my mind that anyone could read our Constitution and even remotely recognize our current government as being derived from it other than the most basic structure.

SBR Form 1 took about 3 weeks from submission to approval through eForms. I’m shocked the gov could do anything that quick. All that to say the paperwork was a bit of a PITA to get together, but overall not too bad and totally worth it! Now to shoot this thing and hope it doesn’t blow up in my face (first AR I’ve completely built myself).

I was just going off the average time from the NFA tracker (mine is in an NFA Trust). Personally it’s been 3 months so far, but I’m expecting it to be another 6 months. Stamp was cashed about one month after F4 filed. Naturally I’ll get my can right in the middle of winter when it’s too damn cold to want to shoot.

Update on it blowing up and pics?

Didn’t blow my fingers off! No video yet (the wife rolled her eyes at me when I told her to come out back and take a video), but shoots great. Now I feel the need to build another one...AR-10, why wouldn’t I need one? Can’t wait for the suppressor.

Anyone who wants to protect their gun rights might want to watch a very important case Caniglia v. Strom that the Supreme Court of the United States has decided to hear.

It is a bit complicated but in short a married couple had a dispute and the police asked the male homeowner to come outside and talk, he did so voluntarily.   During the conversation the police determined he needed a mental evaluation so they took him into custody and in for a mental evaluation.  While he was being taken to the hospital a police supervisor ordered other officers to enter his home and seize his weapons, without a warrant.  He was assessed by a doctor and it was deemed he was not a threat so he was immediately released.  The police refused to return his weapons for several months.  Big implications for both the 2nd and 4th amendments. 

Boom!  9-0 against.

9-0 is pretty freaking amazing regarding guns. Did not see that one coming. 

Agreed.

Although I don't think the crux of the case was guns necessarily, but the overreach of the state being upheld by the 1st District.

If it were purely a firearms thing, I suspect it wouldn't have been a shellacking.

Either way, not gonna look good on the DOJ lawyer/department that wrote/argued the amicus brief in defense of this BS.

Still has to go through their reconciliation process since they’re different bills.  Unfortunately I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t happen before the session ends...hope I’m wrong.

Looks like Texas Constitutional Carry might actually happen…

Fuck yeah!

That said, a bunch of my LEO buds are actually against it.  I really don't understand why, very few criminals are trained in the safe use of firearms, and anyone who's been through the CHL/LTC process knows the requirements are so basic they're basically useless!

Finally.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A federal judge has overturned California’s three-decade-old ban on assault weapons, calling it a “failed experiment” that violates people's constitutional right to bear arms.

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez of San Diego ruled on Friday that the state’s definition of illegal military-style rifles unlawfully deprives law-abiding Californians of weapons commonly allowed in most other states and by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Another win that should force the useless Roberts' "led" Supreme Court to actually decide something.

https://www.rollcall.com/2021/07/13/appeals-court-finds-aged-based-handgun-purchase-ban-unconstitutional/

 

In a 2-1 ruling, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, based in Richmond, Va., found that the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms is no different from other constitutional rights that start at age 18, so the government must have a justification to restrict that right.
