    They aren't rewriting a definition in this case, (at least not yet) just applying it. They can change the regulation, but there is a statutory definition of "machinegun," so they can't really depart...

    Yes. "A trigger is generally 'anything, as an act or event, that serves as a stimulus and initiates or precipitates a reaction.' Webster's Unabridged Dictionary 2021 (2nd ed.1997). Within the realm...

    There is a lot up in the air with the current state of administrative law. Until recently, federal courts have been very deferential to interpretations by administrative agencies. However, many...

    Ergonomics are tough on a mass market gun. For example, most aftermarket undercuts feel like garbage to me, but I have no issues with the stock Gen 5 grip. I also have pretty limited feeling on that...

    Right, but disproportionate compared to what? Not as their share of annual firearm sales.

    If they're saying compared to other firearm homicides, that's true, but it doesn't mean very much....

    Rupp has already been argued before the Ninth Circuit. The other factor is that NYSRPA may result in many cases being remanded to lower courts, so there are a bunch of moving pieces right.

    The claim that ARs are the most commonly used firearms for mass shooters is not correct. Mother Jones' database tracks mass shootings and weapon type. Handguns remain the most commonly used firearm....

    No, the appellate court just stayed the case (meaning it won't proceed) pending the result in another AW case that is already at the Ninth (Rupp). That case is in turn stayed pending the result in...

    The legislative process is often compared to sausage making; you don't want to see how it actually works. There are multiple groups that often need to be appeased, and that can regularly result in...

    That's a very good point. Pushing big tires hard into hardpack berms isn't really what they're for. I'm almost always riding on good dirt (VA, MD, WV, and PA).

    I'm running a 2.5 Assegai as a...

    I'm certainly not a big guy (only 165 in riding gear), but I really don't like the way that plus-sized tires feel. My wife's bike has 2.8s, and I really can't get used to the vague feedback that they...

    Yes, but annual meeting is normally in April or May. Since it is in September this year, they're in the combined June/July issue that just came out.

    They aren't prohibited from changing their position, but federal law does require that they acknowledge that they are changing their position.

    The good news is that the fact that ATF refuses to recognize that it is changing position will cause the agency real problems down the road. "To be sure, the requirement that an agency provide...

    Again, just because something is a "workaround" doesn't mean that the government can prohibit it without statutory change.

    Industry always attempts to adapt around the law. Sometimes it is very...

    Marion and a few other board members receive compensation for doing things other than being a board member. So, if an article says she's getting paid to be a board member, that's incorrect. In...

    California will appeal to the Ninth Circuit. When appealing to a circuit court, a three judge panel hears the case. If California wins, the plaintiffs/petitioners would likely appeal to SCOTUS. If...

    Nope, I was just saying that if SCOTUS wants to go all-in on 2A right now, they certainly have the opportunity. I don't think it's likely they'll grant ANJRPC, but, if they do, things will get very...

    Here's hoping you're right. SCOTUS just distributed the petition in ANJRPC v. Grewal (our NJ mag ban challenge) for conference on June 24th. We think that they'll likely hold it and then grant,...

    Why do you think CA will lose at the Ninth Circuit? The odds are still strongly in the government's favor for a panel draw.
