    New York's SafeAct has something like 90% non-compliance. New Jersey's mag ban has 100% non-compliance.

    Who thinks bumpstock owners will lose them in a "tragic boating accident"?




    Actually, it's more like 4%:

    Source: https://www.timesunion.com/tuplus-op...on-6754126.php

    [NY state police] ...revealed that only 44,000 firearms had been registered. Subtract from that number the firearms owned by police officers and licensed dealers (who have little way to avoid registration), and it's clear the compliance rate for registration among average citizens is less than 4 percent. It's hard to call a law that commands a 96 percent noncompliance rate a success.
    Connecticut gun owners proudly have a similarly large non-compliance rate with their absurd gun laws.

    Modern handguns and rifles are, without question. "Choose your battles" and bumpstocks aren't the hill to make a stand on. They are just novelty devices.


    Miller WON his original case. He (and we) lost when the verdict was appealed and Miller didn't show up in court.

    His appeal was actually lost when the attorney for the government claimed (correctly) that THE PARTICULAR SHOTGUN Miller owned (i.e. HIS SHOTGUN'S SERIAL NUMBER) was never used in Militia service.

    I'm amazed that the attorney got away with such a juvenile argument.......

    Interesting stat. I'm surprised they would admit to it as it shows how it is nearly a total failure.
