I know we've heard so much of this stuff that we're blue in the face. But, I got to thinking today about the sunset of the AWB and the possibility of it being instituted later. I'm feel at this point that it will sunset. If this does happen, we would hope that at this point nothing would be considered post/pre ban anymore. So, we all go update our "homebuilt" AK's and put flash hiders and folding stocks on. Then Kerry gets elected and we instantly are forced back under a permanent AWB. And, this ban is identical to the first. So, we go back to building our "non" evil AK's. One day, you get a knock on the door by the ATF and they check your guns out. They pick up your now "preban" weapons and say that you've broken the law by adding on evil features when this is now against the law. How do you prove that it was built before the ban.
I guess this could just as easily apply to guns that were made prior to the current AWB. How do those people who built 10 years ago prove that their guns are Pre-ban when many of us don't have registered receivers or anything that can prove the age of the weapon.
Should we be keeping records, sales receipts, of the parts kits? Or receipts from ACE for the blanks?
Maybe I'm not aware of all the laws that would be involved here and this is not a point that would need to be proved. Please fill me in.
