How Gunmakers Tweak Rifles to Get Around How the Permian Basin Became North 2 days ago   05:21

Wall Street Journal
California has tried three times to ban what lawmakers call assault weapons. Each time, gunmakers have made tiny tweaks to the offending rifles, and gun shops have continued selling guns that operate nearly identically to the banned models. WSJ explains how guns have evolved in the state, and why it can be difficult to make firearm restrictions effective.

Divide America into 2 areas, one where guns are legal and one where they are banned entirely. Now, what side do the criminals choose to live on?

Would like to see a similar report on the negative of some politician to include gang members in RED FLAG laws. That will help to disarm illegal gun owners

A Ruger mini 14 and AR-15 still shoot the same round. Law makers need to leave the AR-15 alone.

Those “Evil features” help the shooter shoot better thus actually making it safer.

Lawmakers are complete dumbasses. Not our fault. Lol.

I just found out that a gun free zone doesn’t mean they are giving out free guns to protect ourselves. Well, I feel very unsafe in those places.

3:22 not only can you illegally modify a gun, you can also illegaly create a gun from scratch if you have the motivation or enough money and can find the right person.

These guys sound like f@gs.
You will never stop the sale of Modern Sporting Rifles in California. We will ALWAYS find a way.

Lol, why didn’t they cover the featureless options? Lawmakers make laws, and engineers make solutions.

It seems like the places where these horrible tragedies happen occur are in areas with the strictest gun laws.. My heart goes out to all the families that suffered a loss by the hands of a criminal with a weapon... if a person is that sick mentally and there aren’t warning signs they won’t abide by the law... the most reasonable way to defend yourself from a gun is with a gun.... our crime rate up here in north Idaho is virtual non existent compared to where I came from in central CA... when criminals know there is a good chance u have a weapon 9/10 times they won’t chance it... be prepared and stay folks

🤦🏻‍♂️ok when people follow the law with innovation it is not a loophole. It is just following the law while attempting to exorcise there 2A rights without being harassed by there public servants.
