    Design of AR-15 could derail charges tied to popular rifle

    Three judges have rejected the government's interpretation of the law, despite dire warnings from prosecutors.

    Imagine lawyers who pay people to teach them to lie (intentionally misinterpret) get slapped by it.
    SMH- the arrogance is appalling.

    Basically it has to do with the BATF's definition of a firearm in specific relation to AR lower receivers. Based on federal law the BATF's definition that has been applied to AR lowers is technically illegal, it doesn't jive with the way the law is written. Their definition is finally being successfully challenged in court much to the dismay of prosecutors. For all intent an purposes a new federal law needs to be passed in order to treat AR lowers as weapons. This also has other potential ramifications with other types of firearms. This applies directly to legal home built firearms of which the AR is the most popular home built model.
    It's one of the ways felons get "legal" access to firearms........
