The gov't is appealing. IIRC, this is the case where the 9th said that the NFA doesn't reach homemade machine guns which are not placed into interstate commerce. The guy was convicted for possession of firearms by a convicted felon, but his NFA violations were reversed by the 9th. This could be a GREAT case, if the USSCt upholds the MG portion.

The SCOTUS could make some interesting case law here, but it won't matter.

Each state (except WY and MT) that allows Class 3, state they must be in compliance with NFA.

HOWEVER, if the 9th CCA decision is upheld, then a home built from scratch machine gun would be in compliance, Interesting, I think.

I have to go back to being a shitbag truckdriver now. Good day, gents.

Ah! Yes, it would be interesting if (for once) SCOTUS didn't overturn the 9th Circus on that particular decision!

Home made machine guns would not be under 922 (o).

The Hughes 1986 machine gun freeze would not apply to home made machine guns not entered into interstate commerce.

In the meantime, shouldn't the BATF be giving its approval to homemade machineguns in the 9th circuit?

No, they are going to sit and wait.

I hope to hell that the MG ruling is upheld.. If it is, when I move outta here I'll turn my FAB-10 into, well.. first I'd turn it into an AR-15, then I'd build a DIAS..
