    In today's climate it's probably sage advice. Sounds more like pre WW11 Europe everyday.

    Brown shirts everywhere.

    Very sad indeed. It kinda takes some of the fun out of this sport nowadays. Back in the day it was a blast to go to the range and show off some target Mauser or Springfield you just finished building, now there's so many crooks or libs around,, you hardly dare show anything to anyone!

    Anybody that builds something illegal nowadays is stupid IMO. Just asking for issues.
    One of the many reasons I've just built target guns in the past, plus there my cup of tea anyhow. Never was much into the exotic stuff that much, sure I've had a few, but I like hitting stuff, not just throwing lead around helter skelter, even though it's fun sometimes. And with all the precautions I've taken no one will get away with robbing me anyways. Between 3 Chows, infrared cameras, good safes, CS, bear traps(yes I found a new one),R/C cross bows and shotguns , closed circuit cameras, numerous 220v surprises and some of the other unmentioned nasty surprises I have in store for a crook, they wouldn't get far around here. Remember the "fly swatters" in Nam,,,,got a couple of those set up too by R/C on a truck leaf spring!! OUCH, that will leave a mark!!!! Plus there is always at least one of us around the house at all times. All or any of those could be Ugly surprises for some one feeling brave around here! That's for damn sure.

    Ask "stumpy" in Danamora Prison,,, he'll tell ya all about the bear traps!

    That's not even taking into account what I carry or have stashed in the corners and conveniently located, or the nosy gun toting neighbors on both sides of me. Not much goes unnoticed around here.

    i think US body politic is about where germany was in the late 1920s - before Hitler was voted into office.

    there was communist, anarchists, socialist and other even more weird social-political movements trying to take over.

    They said five guns were converted to fully automatic weapons.

    Investigators also said they found Lester carrying two guns on him without a concealed weapons permit.
    WELL SOUND LIKE HE WAS BREAKING THE LAW . ITS PRETTY HARD TO RUN A FULL AUTO AN NOT GET NOTICED .
    '
    I get a little bothered by cops getting warrents from just a tip . a tip can be from any one who is afraid of guns or has no idea what is legal or not . Id hate to think all it takes is some one telling the cops Joe blow makes guns . Im betting there is a littel more to this .

    I say more like Rome circa 4th Century. We are circling the drain and we are one "Honey Boo Boo" episode away from going down the drain. Let's see what good ol' George Washington said about this kind of thing

    “The foundation of our Empire was not laid in the gloomy age of Ignorance and Superstition, but at an Epocha when the rights of mankind were better understood and more clearly defined. At this auspicious period, the United States came into existence as a Nation, and if their Citizens should not be completely free and happy, the fault will be entirely their own.”

    Damn those founder guys were smart. It's like they had a crystal ball or something... or just an education...
    "What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?" -Thomas Jefferson-


    "Our rights come from our humanity and may not be legislated away -- not by a vote of Congress, not by the consensus of our neighbors, not even by agreement of all Americans but one." Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

    I watched the news, dude made a few mp5's has an sks and a few others, holy cow MACHINE GUNS!!!!

    The media is so ignorant machine gun=an externally fed gun typically via belt feed. They showed a 10 round stripper clip from an sks
    they intentionally skew the facts.


    They raided him on a tip thats the scary part for me, its getting to the point you can say anything about anyone and the police(gestapo) will kick your door in.



    Joe


    That's the MAIn issue!! Getting raided because of a tip from someone. Any one of us could get raided in the same fashion because of a Liberal neighbor that has zero clue that what we build is legal per the BATFE. I have nothing to hide, but I still don't feel like having a SWAT team break my door down at 2 am with a warrant to search the place just because an idiot didn't like me, or didn't like that I'm a gun owner.

    I have literally told several neighbors who knew what my hobby was, that I am no longer building, and sold almost all my collection. Told them I kept a pistol for home defense and a rifle for hunting. Other thsan that I sold everything because it was getting too expensive, and I needed the income from the sales to help out with my daughter's wedding.
    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!

    "If they’re going to come here illegally, apply for & receive assistance through a corrupted Government agency encouraging this lawless behavior, work under the table & send billions of dollars each year back to their families in Mexico, while bleeding local economies dry, protest in our streets waving their Mexican flags DEMANDING rights, while I have to press ’1′ for English, then they need to be shipped back to where they came from!" -Chad Miller

    Basically I learned a while back not to talk about all my hobbies, there is always someone wanting to profit off of your labor and if you tell them where all your toys are they will be right over. Now that could mean a thief or a hotdog leo wanting a few brownies points. I have never built anything illegal (well other than a couple of hotrods and I paid my fines on that lol) But by the time you pay bail get a lawyer and go though all the hassle you lose everything any way.

    So what I am saying is yes I did build a few completely legal weapons back in the day but unfortunately they were lost in a tragic boating accident.
