President Obama’s goal of removing “weapons of war and massive ammunition magazines off our streets” may be in direct conflict with the Constitutional right of American citizens to be armed.  While taking illegally possessed military style weapons or any weapon whatsoever out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill is important to everyone, here
the Constitution calls for the American people to possess weapons suitable for war.  In other words, more about
according to the Supreme Court, Americans have the right to own firearms that “could contribute to the common defense,” “of kind in common use” at the time in question and are “typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes.” US v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939) @178-9; D.C. v Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) @ 625.

A ban on AR-15s and their standard magazines appears to violate our Constitution.  Every American who has served in the military and most who have been in law enforcement during the past 40 years has trained with and carried the M-16. The AR-15, the civilian version of the M-16, currently provides millions of Americans with the most familiar and effective arm for common defense and self-defense.  Legislation that restricts ownership of the AR-15 in hopes that the courts will not recognize the historic and legal meaning of the Constitution seems unlikely to survive judicial scrutiny.  The Supreme Court already stated “that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.” Heller at 636.

Those that would argue that AR-15s are dangerous and therefore restrictions are allowed under Heller are ignoring the full text.  The language is “dangerous and unusual” and not simply “dangerous.”  There is nothing unusual about an AR-15.  So unless there is a change to the 2nd Amendment by the American people or by activist judicial reconstruction of its meaning, an AR-15 “ban” will not be legal under the Constitution.

Hopefully our lawmakers will focus on preventing possession of any weapons by the wrong people rather than attempting to disarm responsible, law-abiding American citizens.

Anderson Cooper did a wonderful job hosting his “Guns Under Fire” Town Hall meeting on Friday night.  He was kind to everyone and gave everyone equal time.  However, information pills
Jeffrey Toobin the CNN “Senior Legal Analyst” who spoke should be called their “Legal Advocate.”  His entire statement was filled with arguments advocating the position that ownership of semi-automatic firearms can and should be challenged under the Second Amendment.  He took a few words from the DC v Heller case to claim support for his position and ignored the rest of the 66-page opinion.  He was wrong on several points:

1.            The “18th Century words” of the Constitution has not changed in meaning over time and were perfectly clear to the Heller Court.

2.            The rights under the Second Amendment have never been granted by the Court, they preexisted the Constitution as recognized by the Heller Court.

3.            Mr. Toobin claims that the language in Heller about restricting ownership of “dangerous and unusual weapons” might include semi autos, ignoring extensive discussions of the right to have small arms “in common use.”

4.            The “analyst” also argues that whether an AR-15 is protected by the Second Amendment is “mysterious” despite it being the civilian version of the most common US military rifle for over 40 years and exactly the sort of firearm that the Second Amendment protects.

As CNN continues its advocacy in favor of an “assault weapons ban,” it could at least be honest and not pretend to present unbiased legal analysis.  Attempting to mislead the public about the words and meaning of the Second Amendment and related court cases hurts the debate about reducing lethal violence.  It fuels the perception of CNN as lobbyists pushing a political agenda and not a news organization.  The resulting loss of credibility causes many to discount or ignore what CNN has to say on the issue.

owner of Class 3 Only and firearms law attorney with the firm of Ferris & Eakin, PC, appeared last tonight on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight show at 9:38 pm EST.  He was asked to join the discussion because he is uniquely qualified to speak on the legalities and practicalities of gun control.

“I was hoping to bring out the rational, legal prospective of gun ownership as interpreted by the Supreme Court rather than being part of the emotional outbursts that have been prevalent in the media so far.  I think I did that,” said Lenden.

LAEPiers2It’s Lenden’s credentials which include being an attorney who practices firearms law, a Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealer with a Special Occupancy Tax (SOT) for selling and registering machineguns, a firearms instructor and a former military officer, that led him to be a part of Mr. Morgan’s “Guns in America” reporting.

In his interview with Mr. Morgan, Lenden explained how the 2nd Amendment applies to civilian ownership of Ar-15s.

We will post the interview as it becomes available on the CNN website.

Lenden Eakin, Gives the Answer:

            Because the AR-15 is the civilian version of the M-16.  Every American who has served in the military and most who have been in law enforcement during the past 40 years has trained with and carried the M-16. The similar AR-15 currently provides millions of Americans with the most familiar and effective arm for common defense and self-defense.

            According to the U.S. Supreme Court, the Second Amendment guarantees the right to bear weapons that are “part of the ordinary military equipment”, that “could contribute to the common defense” and “of the kind in common use” at the time in question.  U.S. v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939) @ 178-9.  The M-16 fits this definition without any doubt.  The AR-15 is the commonly owned civilian version “typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes”.  D.C. v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) @ 625.

Therefore, the proposed “ban” on AR-15s will violate the Constitution. The Second Amendment must be repealed or modified to avoid this violation.   Further, legislating to restrict ownership of the AR-15 in hopes that the courts will not recognize the historic and legal meaning of the Constitution seems unlikely.  The Supreme Court already stated “that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.”  Heller at 636.

Semi Autos to Become Class 3 Only?

hk_91_1
Senator Feinstein’s (D, remedy Cal.) Gun Control Bill would require adding millions of semi-automatic rifles and pistols to the National Firearms Act (NFA) registry.  So far, stomach this registry has been used for class 3* only.  The summary of Feinstein’s Bill appears to say that the number of transferable semi-autos would be fixed or “grandfathered” as of the date of the Bill’s enactment, viagra just like the May 1986 freeze on transferable machineguns.  President Obama  has indicated that he will support the Bill and push for its passage, along with his former campaign team, now called “Organizing for Action.”

The new law, if passed, would result in a massive, nationwide registration.  The logistics of such a registration would be tremendous and costly.  Millions of gunowners would have a limited amount of time to register their firearms.  This would cause a huge workload for the Office of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms & Explosives (ATF&E).  Thousands of additional NFA agents would be needed to process this surge in registration.  The management by the NFA of the ongoing selling and buying of these now-registered semi-autos within the federal NFA registry would also create a huge workload on the NFA.

Registration is different from and much more restrictive that the current background check system.  It requires permission for possession from the NFA office after a review of the owner’s personal information, fingerprints, photograph and signature of his/her local chief law enforcement official.  Please see ATF&E Form 4 for those details.

Lastly, the requirement of registering semi autos in the federal NFA registry will make possession of unregistered semi-auto rifle and pistols a crime, make their owners subject to arrest for a felony and result in confiscation of unregistered firearms.

The constitutionality of this effort is highly questionable, but the Supreme Court would have to provide the definitive answer.

Dianne-Feinstein-MTP-268x200A Senate Bill, advice
to be introduced shortly by Senator Diane Feinstein (D. Cali.) will require N.F.A. (National Firearms Act) registration of millions of semi-auto rifles, viagra pistols and shotguns.  It also appears to freeze civilian ownership, pill
just like the May 1986 “Firearms Owners Protection Act” did for machineguns.  “Grandfathered” existing guns would be transferable, by way of the NFA registry and all others either law enforcement guns or contraband.

President Obama will probably endorse this Bill, as will Vice President Biden and many in the media.  The Senate may pass it as written but, more likely will make changes and pass a different version.  Congressman Goodlatte (R, Va), the new Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is unlikely to allow this Bill out of Committee, if the Senate passes it and sends it to the House as is.  Nor would a majority of the House vote for it if brought to the floor in its current form.

The cost, controversy and questionable constitutionality of forcing millions and millions of semi-autos to be registered makes the ultimate passage into law a very low possibility.

A National Firearms Trust (NFA) is an entity designed to own Class 3* items for its beneficiary, and
who usually also serves as Trustee.  The trusts provide for transfer or sale of its Class 3 contents upon death or disability of the beneficiary.  It has the side benefit of not requiring fingerprints, photographs and law enforcement signature, because it is an entity rather than an individual.

Mr. Eakin, an estate planning attorney, as well as a Class 3 dealer provides NFA Trusts for Virginia residents.  He charges $300 for the service.  Contact him through www.rvalaw.com or call (540) 345-1000 for a checklist.

*Currently, Class 3 items are machineguns, rifles with barrels less than 16″, shotguns with barrels less than 18″, sound suppressors, and miscellaneous other weapons like rifles of more than 50 caliber, handgrenades, grenade launchers and various destructive devices.  There are legislative proposals to add over 100 semi-automatic rifles to the Class 3 category.

Sterling Submachinegun – The Best of British to You!

Designed in 1942 to replace the unreliable Sten, view the Sterling submachinegun (SMG) was the SMG of military choice from 1951 to the late 1980’s.  Soldiers liked it for its compactness, cialis 40mg rate of fire (550 rds/min), accuracy (out to 250’) and its reliability.’  Its folding stock makes it versatile in many situations. With the stock extended, it is fired from the shoulder and with its stock folded, it is fired from the hip.

Know as the “Rolls Royce of the Submachine Gun World,” the Sterling SMG has caught the imagination of American filmmakers.  Sterlings or similar variations have appeared in no less than 27 American movies.²   My favorite appearances of this sexy British gun are in the hands of Michael Caine in The Ipcress Files or the armed Princess Leia in Star Wars.


Blimey!  With only 300 transferable full auto Sterlings in the USA, it’s a wonder Class3only.com has one for you.

Battle Rifle of the Holy Land – Galil

Favored by IDF in Six Day War

Considered the best made of the AK design, visit web
the Galil was the primary battle rifle of the Israeli Defense Force.

Israeli Military Industries (now named the Israeli Weapons Industries) is the manufacturer of this rifle.  It comes in 4 different variants – ARM, ampoule
SAR w wooden handguards, SAR w folded stock and MAR.

Very few full auto Galils exist in the USA for legal transfer.  The Galil we have for sale was converted to full auto from semi and registered before 1986 by the longstanding, highly-respected Class 3 manufacturer,  Fleming Firearms.  Well-known in the world of machine guns, the guys of Fleming Firearms tout that “Happiness is a warm machine gun!”

The ARM has a folding stock, in the paratrooper configuration.  The Model 372 is lightly used, if at all, appearing new and would make an excellent addition to any collection of Israeli weapons.  This unusual, well made and interesting Galil has a registered sear and comes with a 40- round magazine (see pic).

FYI, a new semi auto Galil from IWI will run you about $3,000 and a 2-year wait.
