Here it is, folks, and it is bad news....
Remember, it is registration, then confiscation....
...."There shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and a shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event."

Well if this was true it would likely be followed by a barrage of illegal search and seizures.
The american people won't stand for it and this would be considered making war against the american people.

It's odd the m1 carbine is on it but the m1 garand is not. I know you can get these through the civilian marksmanship program so maybe that's it. I saw a .308 garand for 300 and I may pick it up as it'll be one of the best legal guns out there if this list is correct.

Did they not see what happened in Europe?
A barrel shroud is a ventilated covering attached to the barrel of a firearm, that partially or completely encircles the barrel, preventing burns from contact with a barrel hot from firing. Slides, extensions of the stock that do not fully encircle the barrel, and the receiver (or frame) of a firearm itself are generally not considered barrel shrouds. Barrel shrouds are commonly featured on machine guns, where sustained rapid or automatic fire leave the barrel extremely hot and dangerous to the operator. Barrel shrouds have little or no effect on the ballistic performance of the firearm on to which they are installed.

I mean do you really need a full auto assault rifle for hunting? Exactly how dangerous is the average deer? I mean why isn't the gun lobby upset that American citizens are forbidden to own a fully operational and armed thermonuclear missile? After all it is an arm. I can certainly protect myself from an armed assailant with a nuke better than say a machine gun.
What about rocket propelled grenades? Obviously an RPG would be an effective tool in use for hunting. Why isn't the gun lobby upset about those? They are after all arms, and as such should be included under the 2nd amendment right of Americans to keep and bear arms.
