Will a rifle made after the ban sunsets, using a commercial receiver that was purchased before the ban sunsets, be considered pre-sunset or post sunset? Will it matter?????
Grendeljaeger said:As usual with Max and Jack's ideas, I like these, and would much prefer to go the extra mile to have some documentation rather than just trust the goverment to believe that they were made at a certain time. Much better safe than sorry!
Repeal is a good thing. It means that the law is no more. They repealed Prohabition. A sunset is when the law has a provision like this one to go to repeal after a certain date. Hense the law is no more. The sunset provision causes the repeal, in other cases the legislature can do away with the law that is a repeal as well . Jack7.62x39 said:Jack,
What is the difference between being repealed and sunsetting, for those of us who don't speak legalese?
Is this good or bad?
I wonder how many people have bought preban weapons face to face without the 4473 (yellow form)?scubadvr said:SEC. 3. RECORDKEEPING REQUIREMENTS FOR TRANSFERS OF GRANDFATHERED FIREARMS.
