I think there was a ruling in another case that kills our Stewart hopes. It was a case against home grown marajuana. That case tried to claim that growing your own dope didn"t affect interstate commerce. The courts ruled that it did.

Therefore, making your own home made mg affects interstate commerce.

Something like that. I'm not a lawyer, and I didn't stay at a holiday Inn Express last hight either...

The only difference is that weed isnt legal in any state and has a tendency to be packaged sold and ran across state lines to sell illegally. Large growth amounts usually make it out of state as a rule. I think steward still has a good case if it goes to the supreme court.

At least machine guns have a registration process in place.

I can't find the post here on the board, but shortly after the decision in Gonzales v. Raich (the marijuana case) it was the 9th circuit that took the Stewart case and referred to the Gonzales v. Raich decision, i.e. that Stewart was basically null and void.

The commerce clause and its interpretation are what most of the federal gun control laws are built on top of. Its loose interpretation by all branches of government are obviously causing problems. Who knew that a case on medical marijuana would have an affect on building new MGs?

Here's the story:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away called the 9th Circuit, some good and noble judges said it was OK to make a machinegun to fight dragons with. However, the evil Supremes, who wear dark black robes to match their dark black hearts, overruled the good and noble judges of the 9th Circuit and returned the people of the 9th Circuit to bondage and slavery. The End.

Wow. That IS an odd story. I saw the phrases "good and noble judges" used to describe the 9th circuit. Even with them almost letting us get away with new MGs, I don't think that would redeem them to the status of good and noble. Now if they totally trashed the NFA on the other hand...
