When does a piece of raw material become a firearm? Is this a firearm?

Most people would say that it isn’t. It requires some work and machining to become a firearm. Is this a firearm?

It still requires a good amount of machine work to make it a functional firearm. What about this? Is this a firearm?

Even the ATF told the company that it wasn’t a firearm. (pdf warning) Until they changed their minds and decided that it was. Now a judge did as well. So now the company has to pay $4 million in damages for defrauding customers by “lying” and saying that their product wasn’t a firearm.

How about this? Is it a firearm?

By the same rules that were just applied to Polymer80 by the ATF and the judge, they are. I have the plans right here. (pdf warning) Anyone can build a full auto SMG with less than $100 in parts from Home Depot.

when the left says something, that makes it the truth no matter what…before long, the thought police will be knocking on your door because inside you laughed watching a video of leftard getting his ass beat…

When is it a firearm? Rhetorical question, correct? Whatever the answer is today, even if the answer is provided by the chartered legal authority to provide it, that answer may be changed to a different answer entirely at breakfast tomorrow at the peril of all those who faithfully relied upon today’s answer.

    You sir, have just given the only truthful and relevant answer to the question that was posed. Case closed.

It is a firearm when a comrade from the CPUSA (D) says it is.
All snarks aside, a buddy had a single shot .22 made from old plumbing pipe. It could be used Resistance style to upgrade.
Sporky time approaches, plan and prep now because the comrades are.

The BATFE has always been very unreliable in their ‘rulings.’ Individual agents will have widely differing interpretations on each ‘ruling.’

And it’s not a fault. It’s built into the system from Day 1 to allow the agency to do whatever it wants to do whenever it wants to do it to whomever it wants to do it to. And vice-versa. Thus the Hunter Biden owning a gun getting a complete pass from the BATFE while they’ll do a colonoscopy on random hetero married Christian (or Jewish) conservative white male.

‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.’
