New column at The Zelman Partisans:
ARs Are Not Machineguns
Gun Owners of America, Inc. v. Garland, GOA’s bump-fire stock case brought about an interesting development. The Department of Justice sent the court a letter in response to a request about the meaning of “can be readily restored to shoot.”
Edited to add: A couple of years ago, I got in an argument with a low-IQ lawyer who was convinced that the ATF had ruled that ARs are machineguns. If he wouldn’t take my word for it that they hadn’t, I wonder if he’ll believe the Department of Justice.
