Seriously, would everyone take a chill pill and relax on the legal excerpts! Lisa's has already capped our PM's to 100 posts to free up space. I can't imagine why?
All these uber long rants between multiple parties regarding personal interpretations of various acts, legislations, laws etc. is doing this community (in this case) no favors since it clutters up the original posters thread (I have also been guilty of this and I'm going to meetings to curb it). Especially in this case since the gun itself is going in for ballistic testing.
Wait a few days for the results of the test. Then you will know exactly how "The Man" perceives these devices.
