Does anybody have any reliable knowledge of an regular AR-happy citizen, ( as most of the members are as opposed to a skel involved in ilegal trafficing of AR type weapons) being charged and prosecuted for AWB violations. And if so what was the disposition of the case ?

Assuming a lower receiver was manufactured and purchased prior to the effective date of the now defunct AWB, it would seem to be very difficult to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that said receiver was NOT a fully configured and functional weapon as of the effective date of the AWB.

I am not looking for a debate on the pros and cons of the old AWB or any possible new one. I am not looking for letter of the law goddness either. Just really interested in the practical application and prosecution of the old AWB.

Argh, dood, you use grammar that's too high level. Let me say it for you.

1. Has anyone who legally owned an AR ever gotten in trouble. If yes, what was the result of the court hearings.

2. Owners of stripped lowers that's made prior to the 1994 9/14 ban date, what prove does he/she have that can prove that the lower was not assembled as a weapon.

(Eh ... By the way, I think you have the logic reversed here. If you have a lower prior to the ban, wouldn't you want prove that it WAS assembled as a weapon before the ban, so it can be grandfathered?)

3. The ban is dead. Who cares?

i guess that just proves the old adage " ya ask a simple question ya get simple answers" or maybe it should "simple people answering "

And no I would be more concerned with the legal authorities having to prove it was not fully configured and functional. Remember "innocent until proven guilty"

It's the internet, not eveyone uses words like diposition or defunct.

I don't think this thread is going to work out.
