Interesting. Though it does bring about the question of how individual states will work around the law to make this a nightmare for anybody who tries.

This is a very common thing. I'd bet there are hundreds of thousands or millions of these guns that are made and unregistered. Government can't do shit about them if they aren't aware of them or aware of who is in possession of them. The people who own them are going to do everything in their power to keep themselves anonymous and the guns unregistered and not known to any government agency...that is the whole point.

Currently there isn't anything the states can do unless the law changes either within the state or federally. They will have to outlaw these 80% lower receivers and kits to make your own. Currently they are totally legal so their hands are tied.

Better buy all the 80% lower receivers while you still can...I'm sure the feds will try to ban them eventually.

they cant make these illegal without changing other laws. Mainly because federal law says unless the receiver is more than 80% complete, it is not a firearm, and second federal law also says anyone can manufacture a firearm with out a manufactures FFL as long as it is for personal use. and said fire arm is not required to be serialized or registered to exist unless you decide to sell / transfer ownership of it to another person. only a small hand full of states have taken the steps to do this on a local level.

The People who own them could could care less really. If you follow any of the AR15  or other gun groups on face book you will see people posting pics of their new home builds to show them off on a daily basis. And they already have tried to ban them .... hasn't worked out for them too well. and even if they do, i live in a state that allows private transfer of fire arms between citizens without having to go through a dealer or FFL holder, so i can legally just go buy a used gun from some random guy down the street and accomplish the same thing as far as having something with no paper trail tying it to my name. That's what they are referring to when they mention the "Gun Show Loophole" People making private deals in the parking lot, and people (Non Dealers) renting a booth and selling off pieces from their private collection.
