    The problem is that the weapon has to be manufactured in State X and remain in State X for this to work. If the weapon goes to State Y, it is then considered interstate commerce and subjected to Federal law/regulation. S&W, Colt, H&K, Glock, etc. can't afford to set up manufacturing plants in most of the States that still believe in the Bill of Rights.

    Actually you can buy a 90% AR lower, finish it and there is no requirement for a license number. You could make all the unregistered ARs you want.

    Agreed. But the manufacturers in a state shouldn't be hampered by what they sell within the state they manufacture their product in except by that state. We've got a decent-sized and growing AR and 1911 manufacturer here in KY.

    Or you get a retarded state like mine that is going to ban things all by itself. No need for the Feds.

    It's sad how our little state democrats jump when Uncle Joe Biden tells them to. Wonder what promises are being made?
