7. This.

 

it takes quite a bit of effort, equipment and more than a little bit of skill to complete an 80% lower to make it usable to assemble as part of a functioning firearm. Not to mention more than a little bit of $. Cheaper and easier for those prevented from legally acquiring firearms to get them on the black market. 80% receivers are by and large the domain of the hobbyist firearm owner.


Also, it is always fascinating to me when politicians, from both sides of the isle, use an event like this to promote some legislation that has nothing to do with the event itself. There has been no statement that the firearm used was derived from an 80% receiver. But yet some are using this event to promote restricting their sale. I mean, why not use this event to promote legislation that would have actually had an impact on the tragedy? Like, advancing mental health screenings for firearms purchases or funding for better mental health services for all?

Take some direct, effectual action. It just boggles the mind that when presented with a problem that actions are suggested that have nothing to do with the problem. Sigh...


also... regulation required for 80% receivers? .0000001 seconds later... 79% receivers go on sale.
