Have I been worrying unneccesarily all these years??
I have a WWII M1 Carbine that I got from DCM some thirty five years ago.
I picked up a "Paratrooper" M1 Carbine Folding stock, sometime after that.
I never got around to putting them togeather, and after the BAN went into effect
I had been afraid (reluctant) to put them togeather for fear of doing so illeagally.
I have been recently told that because the m1 was built before the ban (= a pre-ban"),
I could have put the stock on at any time and it would have been leagal to do so.
Is this true ??
Is there any reasonably valid reason (doubly redundant ??) to have a "post ban" AR-15 to which I will add a collapseable stock to (now that the ban is dead - and it is legal)
as having existed in this state at a time when NO BAN was in effect
In the event that another ban is enacted sometime in the future (like after the election)??
It has been argued to me that anything assembled in the period prior to the possilbe NEXT ban, will fall under the catagory of the new "PRE BAN" definition.
You are fine to assemble on both accounts. As for a new ban etc. etc. write your Congressman, Senators, and anyone else who will listen.. Another one could be worse..
