    Does anyone remember if for the last ban a rifle had to be "complete" for preban status or if just a lower purchased before the ban but left unbuilt could be then built?

    If just lowers were safe I may pick up a couple at the next gunshow but if they have to be full rifles I don't have the cash for uppers and stocks.

    the lower is the only serialized part so the burden of proof is on them to prove that the gun was assembled after the ban, but i don't think that's illegal anyway. Although it wasn't illegal during the last ban there's nothing saying that this government won't change anything firearm related to "guilty until proven innocent"

    During the 94 ban if you assembled a pre-owned lower into an assault weapon after the ban went into effect, it was illegal.

    It would be impossible for them to prove the rifle was built after the ban, especially if you pay with cash and lose the receipt.

    The way the last ban was worded the rifle had to be an "assault weapon" before the ban to be grandfathered in. In other words it had to be assembled and include evil features before the ban to considered pre-ban.

    ah ok, i was too young to be into guns back when the last ban was in effect. On that note, what was the concealed carry situation like back when Blowjob Bill was in office?

    Best to obtain all your parts and have any work done that will generate a paper trail before any new law (resembling the last AWB) goes into effect. If you can perform activity that doesn't generate a paper trail afterwords, proceed with caution or prepare to pay through the nose for something that's been garndfathered.

    Bill Clinton didn't seem as excited about gun control as Barack Obama, and far fewer states had concealed carry licenses then. I want to say that state CHL programs started rolling out the late 90s.

    Techinically it has to be assembled before the bad goes into effect.

    Almost impossible to enforce, though.
