I totally agree with this and have been saying the same for years.  There is nothing wrong with communism (I like that word better because it more accurately describes communal living on a small scale) in and of itself.  This is the only way the Americas could ever be settled by Europeans when they first arrived.   And, it still works, like in Amish villages, on a small scale.  Homogeneity and everyone internalizing the groups set of rules and morals is key.  Differentiating the group from the "outside world" is also important. Everyone has to generally know one another and WANT to pull their own weight.  Then, it can work quite well. 

However, it was never meant to scale up.  Once you lose the commonality of purpose and familiarity of everyone in the group, it fails. For it to work, everyone must feel connected to everyone in the group.  And, there has to be an agreed method of expelling or punishing those who are disruptive or lazy.

Normally, I'd say you are a bit paranoid.  But, NY these days, with all these protests and everything, 4th of July coming up and NY pretty raw over the overturning of their gun law - I think you are probably doing the wise thing. Hope you know how to use this kind of thing!  Personally, I would have just put the stainless steel pens in my checked luggage.  I like to buy hand made knives in places I visit, and I generally just stuff them in my checked bag.  Never had a problem.

One time, I bought my wife a piece of Lalique glass from the Lalique store in LA when I had to go out there on business. I put that in my carry on luggage not thinking anything of it, other than it was freaking heavy (not a real large piece).  Well, TSA flagged me as it went through the scanner.  I got to look at the scanner and it looked like a solid black cylinder.  So, I opened my bag and it was obviously just a piece of nice glass. Turns out that because it has lead in the glass (looks clear to the eye) it completely blocks the x-ray scanner.  TSA didn't give me any problem over that.

I know I did respond.  No, it doesn't install in the trigger assembly.  The lower receiver needs to be drilled, and the part pinned in place.  It acts like a trip - causing the hammer to drop when the bolt carrier closes.  What you described would cause a slam fire at best, but wouldn't really work to make a rifle fire reliable in full auto.  The one exception to this are open bolt guns, which use a lip on the bottom of the bolt face sort of as a timing device, instead of an auto-sear.

What Xavier fails to understand is that the term "machine gun" really has no meaning outside of the law that attributes a defined meaning to the term.

Take away any legal definition of the term machine gun, and what does the phrase really mean?  A gun that is a machine? As opposed to a gun that is not a machine.  You can see  ( @Xavier_Onassis  not so much), machine gun is a nonsense term just like assault weapon is without it being defined in some law.

No, it's installed in the lower receiver.  It trips the hammer hammer sear as the bolt carrier shuts, making it a true auto sear and not turning it into a slam-fire rifle.

The AR15 auto sear is a machinegun as defined by 26 U.S.C. 5845(b). ATF Rul. 81-4 [Status of ruling: Active] The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has examined an auto sear known by various trade names including “AR15 Auto Sear,” “Drop In Auto Sear,” and “Auto Sear II,” which consists of a sear mounting body, sear, return spring, and pivot pin. The Bureau finds that the single addition of this auto sear to certain AR15 type semiautomatic rifles, manufactured with M16 internal components already installed, will convert such rifles into machineguns. The National Firearms Act, 26 U.S.C. 5845(b), defines “machinegun” to include any combination of parts designed and intended for use in converting a weapon to shoot automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger. HELD: The auto sear known by various trade names including “AR15 Auto Sear,” “Drop In Auto Sear,” and “Auto Sear II,” is a combination of parts designed and intended for use in converting a weapon to shoot automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger. Consequently, the auto sear is a machinegun as defined by 26 U.S.C. 5845(b). With respect to the machinegun classification of the auto sear under the National Firearms Act, pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 7805(b), this ruling will not be applied to auto sears manufactured before November 1, 1981.

Nice find on the AR15 auto-sear. The one I posted about is for an FN FNC.  Yes, you can modify the lower receiver by drilling a hole in it to install the registered auto-sear.  You can do this in an FNC, because only the FNC upper receivers are the serial numbered part, making the upper receiver the "gun". So ATF will allow mods to the lower receiver to accept the FNC sear.

BTW, the bolt carrier needs to be modified as well or it won't work.  All legal, as long as the autosear is registered.

That most certainly is a machine gun, Dummy Xavier.  It is not just a part that allows a rifle to be used as a machine gun. 

ATF Rul. 2008-1
These =20pxsears were required to be registered in the NFRTR as machineguns because they are parts designed and intended solely and exclusively for use in converting a weapon into a machinegun.

Gun culture isn't responsible for murder.  Murderers are responsible for murder. Yes, I have children.  I have taught them and other children how to shoot.  There are, however, children that I refuse to take shooting.  Those are the ones who are irresponsible, angry, mean, disrespectful, and obstinate.

Like you, for example, I would not teach someone like you how to shoot.

That is actually an interesting guess.  Technically, such a device (and there are such devices) would be called an "auto-reset", which would automatically reset the trigger after bumpfiring.  But, no, this has nothing to do with bump stocks.  It is a genuine, registered machine gun.

It's not like I needed to look up what this sear is for.  I already know about this - I just had to  find a photo of it. Come on, take a guess!  About all that can happen to you is you might be wrong and I might chuckle, or cry indifferently or something like that.

This gun part, called an auto-sear, is a legal machine gun, if it was registered pre-1984.

Image

And, while you could illegally make one of these with a bench grinder and a drill, none of you would ever likely be able to figure out how to "make it work".  Question is, do any of you gun nuts know which gun this is for?  And, how can it be installed into a modified receiver if machine guns can't be manufactured (for civilian ownership) after 1984?

Hint - this is a tricky one to answer.

The CDC says the outbreak is "primarily among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men, including those living with HIV. Recent data show that about half of the cases associated with this outbreak are among Hispanic men. This outbreak is mostly affecting people who live in Florida but has also affected some people who have traveled to Florida."

We ain't legalizing - that would cut the bankers out. But they're getting all of those things. That's the status quo that you support and I oppose. I'm in favor of legalizing, taxing and regulating all drugs. People should not be able to use a lot of these poisons without a license and permits and bonds - they're that big a hazard. But you want to let the criminal element continue to (mis)handle all of that.

You say they should not be allowed to **** up public places, as a condition of legalization. Well, no worries. We ain't legalizing - and they're **** up public places. If they had been required to submit usage itineraries as a condition of purchase, this would not be the case.

You say they should be left to rot in their own drugs and filth until they die, as a condition of legalization. We ain't legalizing - and they're left to rot in their own drugs and filth until they die.

You seem schizophrenic on this topic. Listening to you, I would think you are AGAINST kids getting hooked on drugs. But then you turn right around and defend the very system that has criminal cartels in charge of regulating drug sales. You DO understand that the cartels actually target kids, yes? With free samples - yes?

I have the stomach to legalize, tax and regulate all drugs. Freedom is messy - prohibition is messier. You're so intent on controling that which you CANNOT control, that you lose any ability to legitimately regulate. I'm good enough with NOT controlling, but influencing and regulating. I favor a system that would give society GREATER control. Right now, the criminals regulate drugs - for their interests. In my view, SOCIETY should regulate drugs, for OUR interests. And the bad ones? The really bad ones should have the greatest level of regulation, as they pose the greatest threat to society's wellbeing.
If I had my way, I would go to war with Mexico and China over what they have done to our Citizens through addictive chemicals.  As far as I'm concerned, this is a form of chemical warfare.  I'd give one stern warning to Mexico - keep you drugs, your gangs, your **** out of America.  That's it then I'd start by wiping out all of Mexico, making it look 10x worse than Ukraine. And then, if necessary, I'd plow into China next.

I'm not a Libertarian.  Never will be and never will cede America's chemical addiction to Mexico, China or any other stinking country.  No more Mexicans - the World will get the message.

Interesting is the reason the Bible says to give wine to the poor is so that the poor can drink and forget their poverty.

At the beginning of Game of Thrones the Queen gave the Opium infused wine to the King when he went boar hunting, and a boar got him.
Matthew 26:41    
Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

But, you are correct, the Bible does not condemn alcohol, for alcohol itself is not the sin.

No.  Guns serve a much greater purpose. I do think that as a society we have a right to keep people off of addictive drugs, and to punish those who seek to get our citizens addicted. Otherwise, we're screwed.  The Chemists will get better and better at making drugs more addictive. You have to see that. 

The only way I'd agree to legalize drugs, and I've said this before, is if
  • they receive no social services, welfare, medical assistance, etc.
  • they not be allowed to **** up public places
  • if they commit crimes, they are swiftly executed
  • basically, they are left to rot in their own drugs and filth until they die.
Liberals don't have the stomach for this.  I do.  Do you?
