It's no wonder why stupid fcxking laws like this are passed.

Quote:
As used in sections 2923.11 to 2923.24 of the Revised Code:
www.handgunlaw.us
(A) “Deadly weapon” means any instrument, device, or thing capable of inflicting death, and designed or specially adapted for use as a weapon, or possessed, carried, or used as a weapon.
(B)(1) “Firearm” means any deadly weapon capable of expelling or propelling one or more projectiles by the action of an explosive or combustible propellant. “Firearm” includes an unloaded firearm, and any firearm that is inoperable but that can readily be rendered operable.
(2) When determining whether a firearm is capable of expelling or propelling one or more projectiles by the action of an explosive or combustible propellant, the trier of fact may rely upon circumstantial evidence, including, but not limited to, the representations and actions of the individual exercising control over the firearm.
(E) “Automatic firearm” means any firearm designed or specially adapted to fire a succession of cartridges with a single function of the trigger. “Automatic firearm” also means any semi-automatic firearm designed or specially adapted to fire more than thirty-one cartridges without reloading, other than a firearm chambering only .22 caliber short, long, or long-rifle cartridges.
You wonder why responsible people get arrested and deprived of liberty even when they try their absolute best to learn and follow the law. Try navigating ever changing crap like this...

The definition of "automatic" is a "semi-automatic" gun only of it can hold 31+ rounds, unless that gun shoots a .22

Yeah, kinda of like California laws. Apparently if your rifle has a thumbhole stock, that's enough reason to confiscate your rifle and throw you in jail. How a thumbhole stock makes a rifle any more dangerous is still a mystery to me.

Here's what I can't find when discussing this topic. Noone seems to be able to give an accurate definition of what an "Assault Rifle" is. There doesn't seem to be a general concensus. Just because an AR15 looks like an M16 doesn't mean it's an "Assault Rifle"; Toyota races a "Camry" in NASCAR, that doesn't mean all "Camrys" are race cars. They may look similar, but they are not the same.

And in NC
What are the relevant laws regarding Assault Rifles in North Carolina?

A: Assault rifles (the real ones) are select-fire battle rifles available only to military and law enforcement. "Select-fire" means that they can be switched between semi-automatic mode (one shot per trigger pull) and full-automatic (machine gun) or "burst" mode (multiple shots per trigger pull). They are considered to be machine guns by law and are thus illegal for private citizens to own in NC. Is that the type of rifle to which you are referring? Or do you mean the non-select-fire cosmetic look-alikes, the so-called "assault weapons?" If so, we were fortunate enough to be able to make the NC legislature understand that so-called "assault weapons" are no different from any other non-select-fire gun, except in appearance. Because of their understanding, there are no state-specific laws governing "assault weapons." There are Federal laws, of course, and there are some local ordinances in Durham and Chapel Hill. The local ordinances were invalidated by a state-wide preemption law, but Durham and Chapel Hill still keep their ordinances on the books to "make a statement."

Idiot reporters kept throwing around words like assault rifle when they had bins full of fudd guns

Guess my AK is considered an assault rifle. Well, since I lost it during my last hunting trip I don't need to concern myself at this point.

That depends on which Supreme Court justice you ask.

The fact is that for all the stories you hear about people using guns to protect themselves the numbers are incredibly low. Most guns are not being used for self defense. So what is the answer? Don't drive through Compton at midnight. Be smart. Intelligence trumps firepower every time.

Actually...Machineguns are NOT illegal in NC... The laws wording is very strange but I can only assume it means illegal conversions.

Quote:
a person who lawfully possesses or owns a weapon as defined by subsection (a) of this section in compliance with 26 U.S.C. Chapter 53, §§ 5801‑5871. Nothing in this subdivision shall limit the discretion of the sheriff in executing the paperwork required by the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms for such person to obtain the weapon.
In most states....if you can legally buy a pistol at a gun shop you can buy a machine gun.

Funny thing about our bill of rights.... the 2A was written so we could be on the same playing field as the federal government incase they ever needed to be overthrown....NOT for SD persay. Hints why they cant come out and ban any type of firearm. They can put "bans" in place but they can NEVER take them all away reguardless of grandfathered firearms, tax stamps, or licencses. If you have the money and time I can tell you how to legally own your own mini gun...

Now theres no way that our founding fathers could imagine the military advancements the government possesses right now but the heart of the law put us on equal footing with them at the time. HD was not at the heart of the law.
