If things go the way they are eventually those things will be regulated. Government will control anything that could be dangerous, knives will only be allowed for kitchen use and cannot be too sharp, rental trucks will be regulated and hard to get, etc., there are so many things that can be taken from the people if told it will keep them safe.

This executive order will be unenforceable. There are ways around anything. I remember when I was younger, a popular barber here semi-retired and decided to cut hair in a small shop at his house, the city told him no. So he started cutting hair free, they could not stop that. Everyone who came in, dropped money in a jar on a shelf. It technically was not a business, so they could do nothing.

Instead of holding your breath, read the document, and read the OP, and read the report the OP cut and pasted from in the first link.

If it still evades you, I will come back later and explain it to you.

By the way, "Mounting a scope" does not make a gun more accurate. It can enhance the accuracy of the shooter if that person actually knows how to use a scope.

Indeed. Sighting systems are shooter aids, NOT accuracy enhancements, however, under this EO, they are defined that way. Why? Because theauthor knows nothing about firearms. This is typical of ALL "gun control" legislation. It's authored by idiots. People who's only knowledge of firearms is that they are afraid of them, or, they are pandering to those who are afraid of them.

Yep, people who age so afraid, and so reliant on government to protect them, they would sell their very basic freedoms to merely FEEL "safer".

All these fancy sights do not make you shoot better. Mostly them let you see better. I guess this means I will have to buy parts and modify my own firearms.

I already read it, as I stated previously. you're the one claiming the NRA's explanation is false.

by all means, enlighten me.

Would two C clamps make someone a felon?

If I was fixing other people's firearms I would read the entire EO and see exactly what was, besides the $2,500, I had to do to comply with the law. In the mean time any work I have done has gone unrecorded anywhere. I prefer to keep it that way.
