Since the lowers have no serial number, it most probably means he bought legal 80% lowers that he would have to mill and drill out himself or in a machine shop.
Now once he assembled the milled and drilled lowers with the other components, would this DIY AR require a serial number to be legal. In other words, if that is the way this guy built his firearms, are they illegal because they have no S/N?
Also, what is your theory on how he modified these weapons to be full auto?

Memphis is on the other end of the state from Washington County, over 400 miles away.
The homemade weapons are legal in semi auto, with out a serial number, but they can not be transported across state lines. He screw up when he drilled the 4th hole for the auto sear. That's a violation of the NFA.
They look like very cheap builds, the black one has no sights. AR's have tight tolerance's these basement build weapons may not even function properly. The mismatched, pencil barrels would overheat quickly in full auto use.
Some of the rifles used in Vegas on the other hand were built by Daniels Defense, are very high end.

Its a beautiful display of government imposed propaganda designed to cover whats left of the legal gun market loopholes. I see they threw in the 80% lower to tug at them hearts about "no background check needed oh noes!!!"
you do see whats going on right?? They are building a character stereotype to attack in the media as a target to direct the audiences anger. You see that right?? Its like they are cherry picking the perfect variables to make these random sudden and spontaneous TV dramas as a rallying cry for us to demand we sign away our own rights. It will have no effect though, we are good on this fight for some time, so I not too worried about the effectiveness of this obvious government sanctioned and legal propaganda.
There should be about two or three more of these little spontaneous stops that are suddenly worth then entire nations attention, maybe one more shooting that will be miraculously or heroicly ended prematurely in good fortune and then that's a rap for the rest of the year.
Funny though, I did not hear about this years disease of the year (i.e. ebola, zika, H1N1, pig/avian flus mad cow etc.. etc..)
Sometimes I think they do it just to keep the market in a routine.
Lol, right. Because local law enforcement doing their job giving people who speed tickets - who also happened to be on a suspended license (therefore can search the vehicle) is "government sanctioned propaganda."
