Current 80% frame regulating states

Current 80% frame regulating states

In the wake of proposed gun control legislation from the Biden administration (FJB), the gun community seems a bit confused as to what is really going on, and what will come of one of gun enthusiast’s favorite hobbies: building 80% lowers. 

What is an 80% lower?

An 80% lower is a frame or receiver of a firearm that has not been completely milled out. Currently 80% are not firearms because of the legal definition of a firearm. According to the ATF, the definition of a firearm is as follows:

“Any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive; The frame or receiver of any such weapon; Any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or Any destructive device.”

As we take a look at this definition from the ATF website, we see that in order for a receiver to be a firearm, it must be able to be “readily converted to expel a projectile…”

An 80 lower is not considered a firearm, because the portion of the receiver that would make it a firearm by this definition, is not milled out, in other words, not readily converted to fire an explosive. 

80% lowers are most commonly made from firearms with easy to work with materials like aluminum and polymers. The AR15 style rifle is the most common 80% lower built firearm because the aluminum is easy to work with using common household tools. 

Legality of 80% Lowers

80% lowers are legal in federal law.  However there are some states that regulate them or completely ban the ownership or manufacturer of guns by unlicensed persons. When you build an 80% lower, you essentially become your own gun manufacturer, meaning there are some rules you have to follow on the federal level. 

  • In order to own a firearm you must be eligible according to Federal law
  • The sale of a firearm by a non licensed person is illegal in some states if they require DROS 4473 paperwork on all firearms
  • Modifications that make a firearm fully automatic are illegal since the 1986 ban under Reagan administration without the proper FFL and specialty license
  • Firearms must be categorized as either a rifle, pistol, SBR, SBS, AOW, Destructive device or illegal as F

States where 80% lowers are regulated or banned:

  • New Jersey - but you can smoke, grow, sell marijuana illegally against federal law
  • New York  - but you can smoke, grow, sell marijuana illegally against federal law
  • Connecticut - but you can smoke, grow, sell marijuana illegally against federal law
  • Rhode Island - but you can smoke, grow, sell marijuana illegally against federal law
  • Washington - but you can smoke, grow, sell marijuana illegally against federal law
  • Washington DC - but you can smoke, grow, sell marijuana illegally against federal law
  • Hawaii  - but you can smoke, grow, sell marijuana illegally against federal law
  • California  - but you can smoke, grow, sell marijuana illegally against federal law

80% lowers are completely legal federally, so it goes without saying that the main issue is when they become firearms legally and what state they are in. It also goes without saying that states that are unwilling to enforce a law because they do not agree with it should not be able to enforce another law because they are against the action if it is federally or constitutionally protected.

Can a felon own an 80% lower?

Whether it is legal for a felon, or whether a felon can, is often the subject of much debate in the country. No matter the state, it is pretty much all encompassing because of federal law that even if a felon is in possession of  an 80% lower it is a crime for them to machine it into a completed lower. That is not because on the federal level, 80% lowers are illegal to felons, rather it is illegal for convicted felons to own firearms in the first place. 

In states like California, New York, and Washington state, it is illegal for those who have been convicted to own firearms as well as 80% lowers. That is, it is illegal in those states for someone to even own receiver blanks in the state. However, this rule does not apply to every state, as there are laws specifically in those states that regulate the sale and ownership of 80% lowers. 

80% Lowers currently?

Currently, the Biden administration has almost reached a climax after a year-long struggle to make headway with “common sense gun laws” in Congress. However, in February, Biden himself announced a call to action signaling to the DoJ to draft a new ruling in the wake of Biden’s newly nominated director of the ATF. Biden plans to circumvent the US legislative process in order to crack down on 80% lowers. 

The New Legislation will be set to update the definitions of a frame/ receiver, as well as what determines a gunsmith. The laws are claimed to be a valid defense against so-called “ghost guns” or the very guns that are made from 80% lowers. 

While the bill has been filed since May of last year, there has only recently been any major headway after Biden’s new nominee for the director of ATF gets ready to take his seat.The bill once officially filed, will be taken into effect 120 days after its filing. More updates on the trajectory of the bill will be made in the near future, as we progress into the Summer months. 

Why is it dangerous to change the definition of firearm?

The ownership of firearms is protected by the 2nd amendment, however, with legislation of the course of a century against the ownership of firearms, a dangerous precedent has been set in legislation that limits the ownership of guns to the American citizenry. Changing the definition of firearms means changing the scope of what people are allowed to do themselves, which means placing a very clear limit on the ownership of firearms. 

The bill, not only attacks 80% lowers, but firearms built by people who do not have FFLs. This encompasses 3D printed firearms as well. 80% lowers are just the most accessible form of DIY gun building, as well as the safest. 

Changing the definition of firearms will not only infringe upon the second amendment, but will carry on a dangerous precedent for the executive branch in circumventing actual legislation in the pursuit of infringing on the second amendment. When laws are not the things governing the ownership of firearms in America, it is lawless in its entirety. Because this new rule will not actually pass the legislature, it will be the first gun control  rule of its kind to completely disregard the American legislative process. 

What should people do right now?

Currently the best thing right now would be to connect with other gun enthusiasts and second amendment activists online through online forum groups. Discussion and awareness about what is going on in this Presidential Administration is important, as the media controls many aspects of the flow of information. Spread awareness of the coming ATF ruling and be sure to stay up to date on the goings on of the second amendment. 

In lieu of a federal redefinition of 80% lowers and how they will be regulated, building DIY guns is still legal as of right now. It is however, unclear how the new ruling may affect firearms which are unserialized that have been made from 80% lower receiver blanks. 

What is going to happen?

The new rule proposed by the DOJ will make it illegal for civilians or unlicensed individuals  to manufacture firearms from 80% lower receivers. They will do this by redefining what a firearm is and what a receiver is. They will also redefine the term for manufacturers to make any possible efforts by the gun community to look for a way to circumvent the ruling before they can even be conceived. Nothing will happen until the rule is actually filed. Note that this will not be a law, or an amendment to pre-existing laws like the GCA or the NFA, but a new ruling by the ATF which will update the definition of firearms.

BATFE FINAL RULING OF 2021R-05F

BATFE FINAL RULING OF 2021R-05F

This was shared from our industry friends at 80 percent arms. We believe they did a great job explaining some key points of what is expected after August 9th 2022 and going forward.


Disclaimer: To get started, we want to share a small disclaimer. We are dedicated and proud supporters of everything 2nd Amendment, but we are not lawyers. Before you take what you read here and run with it, you will want to double-check the official statements from the White House, Department of Justice, ATF and or the Federal Register. Make sure you are up to date on any special regulations that may apply to you and your situation. Gun laws are always changing and always do your part to stay up to date with the newest and current laws.

This information is provided as a service to the public. It is NOT intended to be taken as legal advice and should never be considered as such. Make sure to do your own research as you and you alone are responsible for your own actions.

This is a developing situation and we intend to update via our blogs and newsletter to stay as accurate and current as possible. If you see a clear discrepancy or mistake with any of our information, feel free to let us know so we can review it. Thank you and stay safe!

-

On April 11th, 2022, President Biden held a large press conference at the White House announcing the finalized ruling of the ATF’s new proposed rule making 2021R-05F which stands to change the entire 80 percent and firearms industry as we know it. This rule was written with the purpose of banning 80 lower receivers and 80 lower jigs in just 120 days from the publish date. In the meantime, you are still allowed to purchase these products.

We are working with leaders in the industry as well as our legal team to fight this unprecedented rule that completely hijacked our legal system and bypassed the formal process of how legislation should be created. We will be mounting a robust legal challenge to this executive overreach, and 100% of every dollar spent on our website in the coming months will help cover the very significant legal costs involved with taking on the federal government in court. Please check back often for updates to our site and keep up with our upcoming blogs.

Primary Information Sources

There’s a lot of information for all sides so what we’ve done is create the most comprehensive and complete breakdown you’ll find online on this topic and related news. First, know where to find the official documentation and releases from the government.

2021R-05F — The final rule version signed by Attorney General Merrick Garland.

White House Fact Sheet — Released April 11, 2022

Federal Register — A Guide to the Rulemaking Process.

Federal Register Summary of 2021R-05 — This is where everyone submitted over 290,000 public comments in response to the proposed ruling between May 21 and August 19, 2021.

ATF Summary of Final Rule 2021R-05F — Now that the rulemaking has been officially finalized, notice that the rule’s name designation has now added the letter ‘F’ at the end of it.

ATF Releases Schedule for NPRM — To understand and see the build up to what we’re currently dealing with today.

TL;DR on 2021R-05F

It’s a lot of information to digest, we know. Take your time slowly studying all of this and familiarizing yourself with the current situation that we’re in. The main point to note is that there are a lot of legal definitions that will change the way firearm parts are regulated.

Namely, 80 percent lower receivers and frames (the ATF refers to them in this document as partially complete, disassembled, or nonfunctional frames or receivers, including frame or receiver parts kits) would have to be serialized and require a background check in order to be legally sold to consumers. Similar to how most handguns bought from a gun store will show the serial number engraved on the frame, barrel and slide - upper receivers for all AR platforms will have to be serialized as well (unless they are mated with a grandfathered lower). This means that future purchases would require background checks for even just an upper - which could invite further regulation soon after for complete upper receivers.

With regard to silencers, the requirement to be serialized on the outer tube was further emphasized potentially due to the increasing popularity of solvent traps and DIY suppressor builds in recent years. Essentially, the ATF wants to make sure gun owners are going through them and filing the proper Forms to comply with the National Firearms Act.

Lastly, the definition of gunsmith was seemingly clarified that it would not require licensed gunsmith dealers (Type 01) to be relicensed as manufacturers (Type 07). Additionally, the original ATF Ruling 2010-10 would not be superseded.

2021R-05F Complete Breakdown

This is our complete breakdown of the 2021R-05F which as the ATF’s document reads… will completely upend the firearms industry as we currently know it. We’ve often talked about Hong Kong, Australian and Canadian history of gun confiscations, buybacks, the loss or lack of the right to own or make firearms in our newsletter. Allowing this ruling to go completely unchallenged would be the gateway for a worst case scenario to happen in our country as well for 2A rights.

Below we’ve broken down the complete 364 page document from the ATF and given additional information to explain what each section in the document is talking about and have refuted some points as well. You can expect us to have additional blogs doing a deeper dive on some of these subjects below.

2021R-05F Brief Summary

ATF’s own summary reads as: “The DOJ is amending the ATF regulations to remove and replace existing regulatory/legal definitions of what a ‘firearm frame or receiver’ and ‘frame or receiver’ is because the current regulations fail to capture the full meaning of those terms.”

DOJ is also amending the following ATF definitions (due to advancements in firearms technology):

-Firearm

-Gunsmith

-Complete weapon

-Complete muffler or silencer device

-Multi-piece frame or receiver

-Privately Made Firearm

-What parts would be considered as “readily convertible”

Effective date: 120 days from April 11th AKA August 9th, 2022

Table of Contents (Pages 2-4)

A couple things to note about their table of contents is that there are more federal codes being revised that were talked about in the document. However, it isn’t mentioned in the table of contents. The document was strategically designed to be long and difficult to completely understand.

Executive Summary/Costs and Benefits (Pages 5-11)

In this section, the ATF justifies why we need any of this new regulatory action at all. Their main argument is that current laws do not aptly regulate firearms that have supposedly changed drastically since the Gun Control Act of 1968 was first enacted due to technological advancements.

Background Information (Pages 11-32)

Expect several repetitions of the same or similar information throughout the whole document. In this section some information is repeated from the previous section but it basically presents some brief definitions again along with a timeline of events since 2021R-05 was first proposed as a new rule for the DOJ to consider. Another justification for these new rules is that as many as 45,240 privately made firearms had been recovered by law enforcement and reported to the ATF over the past six years. That’s a convenient metric for the ATF to use when the agency started in 2020 to include normal guns that were bought and not built with their serial numbers scratched off as “ghost guns” as well.

Presents First Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (Pages 32-55)

Although one of the last sections of this document already includes the finalized definitions of the NPRM, this long section presents the definitions that were initially suggested back in May of 2021.

Analysis of Comments and DOJ/ATF responses to them (Pages 56-291)

Thanks to many firearms enthusiasts and industry professionals’ comments to the Federal Register, the ATF had hundreds of thousands of comments and issues to sincerely consider. In this section, some clarity is offered to a select amount of questions although many of the comments that were selected are basically being refuted by the ATF’s responses.

Final Rule and Definitions (Pages 291-305)

Extra definitions can be found here which are not mentioned in the beginning of document:

-Importer’s or manufacturer’s serial number

-Marking requirements for firearms

-Recordkeeping

-Record retention

-Effect on prior ATF rulings and procedures

-Severability

Statutory and Executive Orders Review (Pages 305-319)

Along with changes to several federal codes not listed in the table of contents, these are the executive orders and statutes that were referred to in this section.

Executive Order 12866: Concerns regulatory impact requiring cost benefit analysis of any significant regulatory changes. Was originally signed by President Clinton.

Executive Order 13563: An update and affirmation to the regulatory impact analysis (from EO 12866) originally signed by President Obama.

Executive Order 13132: Concerns federalism and was signed by President Clinton to guarantee the Constitution’s division of governmental responsibilities between the federal government and the states. It also furthered the policies of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.

Executive Order 12988: Concerns Civil Justice Reform and was signed by President Clinton.

Regulatory Flexibility Act — was originally passed in 1980 to establish a principle of regulatory issuance for agencies to follow. To achieve this, agencies were required to solicit and consider flexible regulatory proposals and explain the rationale for their actions in order to be given serious consideration.

Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 — Originally passed because the small business community expressed that there were too many federal regulations which were complex and too expensive to implement. Under this act, small businesses were given assistance in understanding and complying with regulations. Small businesses were given a voice with regard to development of new regulations and the penalty for failing to comply with certain regulations was also reduced.

Congressional Review Act — A tool that Congress can use to overturn certain federal agency actions. This tool was gained through the enactment of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act in 1996.

Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 — In an effort to reduce the burden of paperwork required by the federal government imposed on private businesses and citizens, this act imposed some procedural requirements on agencies that wished to collect information from the public.

Part 447 - Importation of Arms, Ammunition and Implements of War (Pages 320-364)

-Includes new definitions once more

-Appendices with figures and visual examples

-More federal codes revised

-Firearms Importer or Manufacturer Acquisition and Disposition Record

-Armor Piercing Ammunition Importer or Manufacturer Disposition Record

-Firearms Collector Acquisition and Disposition Record

How You Can Help Right Now

If you made it to this part of the blog, you can certainly buy more 80 lowers up until the new regulations go into effect on August 9, 2022, and that will significantly help us in the fight against this tyranny from the federal government. The litigation to fight the Biden Administration’s DOJ will be extremely expensive, but it’s the right thing for us to do. We thank you for your past support and for your continued support during this battle. Please also consider financially supporting other organizations that are on the legal front lines fighting for your 2A Rights:

Crack Pipes - Yes!! Magazines - NO

Crack Pipes - Yes!! Magazines - NO

Washington state has taken on many UN-American transplants over the years from communist liberal ran states like California and others. They are changing the laws shielded (not really evidently) by the 2nd Amendment for the reason of mere ignorance. A 10rd magazine is just as good as a 100rd Beta magazine. They both feed the firearm with freedom seeds the same. Those in office that are pencil whipping these insane and commie laws are solely punishing law abiding citizens and not making a true attempt at stopping/prosecuting the felons and douche bags that are the real problem.

CALIFORNIA VETERAN RAISES FLAG

E P Armory manager Veteran Jeff Kreman raises American flag still at half-staff.

Local veteran learns that the U.S. flag across the street from his work was flying at half-staff below two other flags next to it. Flag code states that no flag should fly above the U.S. flag.

After not getting a response from the company (NESTLE) where the flags were flying, the veteran decided to take matters into his own hands and raise the flag himself.

CA DOJ making you commit a FELONY

CA DOJ making you commit a FELONY

So the Ca DOJ is issuing serial numbers already. We had a customer come into the Bakersfield, Ca location and was asking for the serial numbers to be engraved on his firearm. (SEE ATTACHED) The letter he brought in shows California Penal Codes which federally are void. To manufacture firearms and therefore serialize them for identification you run the chance of committing a federal offense. The BATFE are the ones who issue and hand out serial numbers to Form 7 FFL. Not the CADOJ. A form ATF5320.1 is used and the FORM 7 FFL can engrave the serial number on. Serial numbers are used for "trace" investigations, manufacturer identification, warranty programs and theft recovery. The CADOJ is only doing this for registration purposes and has nothing to do with public safety at all. Why would anybody register a GHOST GUN?

Springfield cuts off DICKS!!!!!!!!

Springfield cuts off DICKS!!!!!!!!

Dick’s sporting goods has let it be known, in no uncertain terms, that they’re no supporters of gun owners or the Second Amendment. First they dumped all of their ARs and related gear and put a 21-and-over gun sales policy into place. As if that didn’t rile up America’s gun owners enough, they then hired a group of lobbyists to press Congress to enact still more gun control laws.

That last move was more than Springfield Armory could stomach. The Illinois-based gun maker announced this afternoon that they’ll no longer do business with Dick’s. Here’s their press release . . .

    GENESEO, IL – Springfield Armory is severing ties with Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, in response to their hiring a group for anti-Second Amendment lobbying.

    This latest action follows Dick’s Sporting Goods’ decision to remove and destroy all modern sporting rifles (MSR) from their inventory. In addition, they have denied Second Amendment rights to Americans under the age of 21. We at Springfield Armory believe that all law abiding American citizens of adult age are guaranteed this sacred right under our Constitution.

    It is clear where Dick’s Sporting Goods and its subsidiary, Field & Stream, stand on the Second Amendment, and we want to be clear about our message in response. Their position runs counter to what we stand for as a company. At Springfield Armory, we believe in the right and principles fought for and secured by American patriots and our founding forefathers, without question. We will not accept Dick’s Sporting Goods’ continued attempts to deny Second Amendment freedoms to our fellow Americans.

Retail store rejects

Retail store rejects

We at E P Armory are angered and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland Florida. The actions of one person can have huge impacts on so many levels.

We have just as much anger though for the media, anti gun groups and politicians skating through the blood of those who were killed only to make a new attempt to strip the freedoms we and so many love. Not only to exercise their right to bear arms but be able to defend themselves from the possible attackers like the one in Parkland. Stripping one right only leads to another. We support and respect the Second Amendment, and we recognize and appreciate that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible, law-abiding citizens. The few who are not are the true problem, as well as federal law enforcement who knowingly fail to identifying them before incidents like this happen.

Gun violence is not an epidemic. The true epidemic is the government inability to enforce the rights of its people, rather they attempt to remove them in the name of safety or feelings. People would rather look the other way or believe someone else will act when a individual maybe not mentally stable. Liberal thinking and the unwillingness to speak up has caused much more harm to our society. The morals of our great nation are being squashed because the news media, social media and celebrities pushing the agenda of equality are being twisted into obliviousness than anything else. Being unaware, unprepared or oblivious is what makes targets dead.

Now we have large store chains such as Dick's, Walmart, Kroeger and more saying they will not sell AR15 style rifles anymore or anything gun related to any person under the age of 21. This is only better for the small mom and pop shops that have had to attempt to compete with the purchasing power they held. As far as those stores I hope they restock those shelves with Tide soap pods.

The owners of E P Armory and its employees are sick and tired of the “gun” always being the center of attention rather than the mental health or the citizen who said nothing before the incident. Those who the media always seem to find for interview always say “the gun was the problem”.

As always, the employees of E P Armory will be making quality components for any and all semi auto platform rifle or pistol. We will continue to sell to any and all civilians of legal age ammo or center fired semi automatic rifle. We will fill the gap wherever it is needed and service the people no matter what the opposition attempts to shove in our direction. We will not let the media or political agenda sway us in any way that could impose our beliefs or those of anybody else on our customers and neither should any business. The idea that these few businesses could have an impact on the demand for a product is rather ridiculous. If people want to consume a product they will buy it elsewhere or build it themselves. We will gladly help them.

How the media assaults what they call

How the media assaults what they call "assault rifles".

Click here for new parts to not have to assault weapon register a rifle in California 2018.



California is known as one of the most unfriendly states to most all firearms. In California we have the Handgun Safety Roster, an assault weapons registration from the mid 90's, magazine capacity limitations, binary trigger, slide fire stock penal codes and much much more. One of the good things is that we have people behind enemy lines that are constantly using the tools for $10.00 and capabilities to assist fellow Californians to not have to give up what is left of there right to own many which California consider to be an assault weapon.

In 2014 I began designing new products that could assist those who did not like the current magazine locks. I also had a pretty good amount of info that the current elected officials in Sacramento would be making a push for the current components to be outlawed so they could make multiple attempts to get rid of Black rifles in California all together. Good luck! Right! Not on my watch!

The first design I came out with is the bolt catch magazine lock which I released to the website first of this year. I then also released the SB880 magazine lock which was from left over bullet buttons I had from the previous year. I just modified them and sold them at a good price. Once the SB880 locks were gone they were discontinued and the bolt catch magazine lock is now one of the top sellers for many states that have ridiculous laws governing a tool that does not control itself.

[SB880 lock picture below]



As a Californian I have had to make sure that what I currently have in my personal collection is "by the book" legal. Especially since I seem to have had a federal target on my back since 2012 when I released the EP80 to public at Shot Show in Las Vegas. When I took to market the EP80 it was one of the most successful products to hit the market and stayed there until its demise in 2014. In 2014 my shop was raided as well as my house and personal life for that matter. I had to fight and spend ungodly amounts of money until late 2016 which is when I finally said no more. I realized that my attempts to fix what was started by a attorney would not go my way due to the government simply wanting me to go away and not willing to stop until I was either broke or behind bars. Well certainly neither of those was an option I was willing to take so I squashed the litigation.

Since then I had already released a new product, the EP80-2 and it was just as popular plus still going strong. So strong that many copycats have ran on the coat tails of a design that is the future of home weapons making. Now we have over 2 dozen products manufactured by E P Armory and have set up distributors nation wide as well as we have 2 manufacturing plants in SOCAL and East Texas. We plan to release a new caliber (224 Valkyrie) as well as a modified EP80-2 which we are calling the EP80-G. It takes glock magazines and is far below any other style of 80% lower on the market.

E P Armory is a family ran and veteran owned company. We strive to make the best as well as affordable products available in our market. Our lifetime warranty covers any and all manufacturing defects as well also offer a second chance policy on all of our products.

My family and my employees thank you for your continued patronage and we look forward to the day Sacramento drains the swamp with those slithery politicians in D.C. .

Florida School Shooting

Florida School Shooting 2-14-2018

On the day that is supposed to be filled with nothing but love the USA was once again savagely served another shooting in a school which took the lives of 17 souls. A young man with whatever bat shit crazy thoughts decided that taking the lives of innocent people was the answer to his meaningless life.

Our country has been plagued with these types of incidents due to the inability of the judicial system, mental health authority, the ATF, the DOJ and the politicians who hold our hands behind our back. When the civilians have been disarmed the assailants have a free for all.

I would have been much happier to hear that this douchebag kid was gunned the fuck down rather than taken into custody.

Here is how it all was recorded......

A gunman set off fire alarms at a Florida high school Wednesday afternoon, luring hundreds of students out of their classrooms so he could open fire with a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle.

After firing several rounds, the shooting suspect, identified as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, dropped his weapon and hid among the crowd as authorities evacuated students and faculty members from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Police captured Cruz over an hour later in Coral Springs, located about a mile away. He was taken to a local hospital and then released into police custody.

At least 17 people were killed and several others were wounded in the shooting, officials said. Cruz was charged Thursday with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

Below is a timeline of events that detail how the shooting unfolded.


Wednesday, Feb. 14

2:19 p.m.

An Uber car dropped off Cruz at the school at approximately 2:19 P.M., Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel revealed at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

"The suspect entered the east stairwell, that's building 12, with a rifle inside a black soft case," he said. "The suspect exited the stairwell [and] pulled the rifle out of the case."


2:21 p.m.

Cruz, according to Israel, then "readied his rifle and began shooting into rooms 1215, 1216, 1214. He went back to 1216, back to 1215 and then to 1213." 

Cruz, he revealed, "took the west stairwell to the second floor," where he shot one person in room 1234. The gunfire lasted a three-minute span, according to the sheriff.

Israel said Cruz "took the east stairwell to the third floor. He dropped his rifle and backpack [and] ran down the stairs."

Cruz eventually left the building with others who were trying to escape. He ran towards the tennis courts and then took a southbound turn, the sheriff said.

After the shooting, Cruz went to a Walmart and purchased a drink at a Subway before leaving the Walmart, according to Israel, though he couldn't give an exact time this occurred. Cruz then headed to a McDonald's and "sat down for a short period of time." 

2:35 p.m.

National CCW Reciprocity

National CCW Reciprocity

With the news being in an uproar over the National CCW Reciprocity bill going through congress right now, one might be thinking about making that choice to go for that CCW. With the Bill passing through the House of Representatives and being approved, now the Bill will go to the Senate, which we all know is mostly Democratically controlled. Will this be a good idea nationally and do you think the state of California is going to allow this? Since states rights are allowed what do you think the state of California will do with orders from Big Brother Fed?

THE CALIFORNIA MIGRATION

THE CALIFORNIA MIGRATION

( Copy and Paste direct from the Ca DOJ website.) I have highlighted some problematic areas............

New Firearms Legislation: "Bullet Button" Firearms will be Considered Assault Weapons Effective January 1, 2017

Pursuant to Assembly Bill 1135 (Stats. 2016, ch. 40) and Senate Bill 880 (Stats. 2016, ch. 48) effective January 1, 2017, the definition of assault weapon is revised.

These bills will require that any person who, from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2016, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, as defined in Penal Code section 30515, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be readily removed from the firearm with the use of a tool, shall register the firearm before January 1, 2018, but not before the effective date of the regulations adopted by the DOJ.

These bills will also require registrations to be submitted electronically via the Internet utilizing a public-facing application made available by the DOJ. These bills will require the registration to contain specified information, including, but not limited to, a description of the firearm that identifies it uniquely and specified information about the registrant. These bills will permit the Department to charge a fee of up to $15 per person for registration through the Internet, not to exceed the reasonable processing costs of the Department to be paid and deposited, as specified, for purposes of the registration program. These bills will require the Department to adopt regulations for the purpose of implementing those provisions and will exempt those regulations from the Administrative Procedure Act. These bills will also make technical and conforming changes.

Assembly Bill 1135 and Senate Bill 880 also define the meaning of "fixed magazine" to mean an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action.

This new legislation closes the "bullet button" loop hole and categorizes "bullet button" firearms as assault weapons.

Find out more about Assembly Bill 1135 and Senate Bill 880

UPDATE AS OF

Mon Jun 19 2017 20:58:11 GMT-0700 (PDT)

: The ability to register an Assault Weapon pursuant to Assembly Bill 1135 and Senate Bill 880, is not yet available. Pursuant to AB 1135 and SB 880, Assault Weapon registration regulations must be effective before any registrations can take place. At this time, the regulations are still pending, however they should be effective in the very near future. Please continue to check the Bureau of Firearms website for updates.
