ARMagLock In Action

Well, things are taking a turn in CA and the mildly functional bullet button will no longer be an acceptable solution for owning an AR in California.  That being said,  new solutions are popping up all the time, and ARMagLock might be the standard for new lowers in CA.  Check out the vid to see it in action.

I hope you were accurate with those first ten rounds because there is no way you'll be fast with this thing!  Yikes, that is a really slow reload process, and a huge pain in the ass.  Be sure to do your own research regarding legalities of this product (I'm not a lawyer, and don't play one on the internets).  Learn more here.

CA Assault Weapons Ban Loophole: Corporations

Hey did you know CA has crappy gun laws?  Yea, it was one of the many things us Californians have to complain about.  It looks there might be a promising loophole in getting "Assault Weapons" rifles with features CA deems evil rifles standard ARs and AKs back into the hands of law abiding CA residents. 

CA DOJ had some deal where they weren't issuing assault weapons permits to companies, even though they were supposed to.  This is BS, and Franklin Armory sued which results in corporations to be issued permits.  Check out the following from Cal FFL:

As reported by Cal-FFL in April, the DOJ had held steadfast by its opinion that only “individuals” are able to obtain permits to sell “assault weapons” or “.50 BMG Rifles”.  However, the express text of Penal Code section 16970 states that “any entity” within the definition of “persons” may obtain such permits.  Franklin Armory argued that the DOJ policy conflicted with the express language of the Penal Code, which defines “person” for the purposes of the Assault Weapon Control Act as “an individual, partnership, corporation, limited liability company, association, or any other group or entity, regardless of how it was created.”  In spite of the clear language of the Code, DOJ disagreed, arguing that the language does not permit corporations to obtain the requisite permits to manufacture and sell such firearms.  OAL’s determination put the matter to rest.

So what does this mean for the average CA resident? The Truth About Guns said it best:

The biggest takeaway from this whole deal isn’t that gun shops can make more money, but that average Californians might be able to band together and form AWB trusts — turning a $1,500 annual expense into something far cheaper and distributed among many Californians. If done right, it could give Californians access to the same freedoms that we take for granted here in the freer states. Just imagine hundreds of Californians covered under a single trust, now able to exercise their right to a 50 BMG rifle and non-crippled AR-15s for only a couple dollars a year.

We may be witnessing the first chinks in the armor of the CA AWB. Keep watching — this could get interesting.

I'll keep you posted when more info comes out, but this could be a HUGE development for CA.  It also means I need to start saving my pennies to apply for the permit :)  Speaking of which this is site is ad supported (ahem, you know what to do!), so please help me bring back non-crippled AW's to CA!
