As I understand it, if someone builds a 'post ban' lower and install a 'pre ban' upper they have created an illegal semi automatic assault weapon punishable by up to a $10,000.00 fine and 10 years in jail.  The crime?  Not fully understanding and complying with a confusing and unconstitutional law.

According to the latest issue of American Rifleman in Wayne LaPierre's editorial, "in the district of columbia second degree [b]murder[/b] carries a minimum 5 year prison sentence"

So if someone were to kill someone with a knife in the district of columbia they could spend less time in jail than someone who builds a rifle with a pistol grip, a flash suppressor and a bayonet lug!

This just isn't right!

Most people don't have a clue just how insane it is. Just like most people thought Bill Clinton was a fine president. Maybe we could sue for discrimination as an oppressed minority.

Of course it isn't right, but what's more hard hitting when you talk to non-gun owners is to tell them that there are federal jail sentences of that same 10 years for making a small metal box with a spring inside that's 'too big'.

Hey, it's the law.  Nobody ever said it had to be right. [:(]

Normal Gov't BS, ah, I mean they are only looking out for the "good" of the people. We all know that building "illegal" weapons is much more dangerous than killing [xx(] someone![v] Bunch of commies!

To a government intent on disarming the people, possession of "modern era" weapons is far more serious than murder.  With those weapons, we can recover the government from the idiots that seem to multiply every day, exactly as intended by the second amendment.  Without them, we are helpless before the Big Nanny's troops.
