Mhm. Because a thumbhole stock will automatically cause firearm-induced homicide.

"Oh my,our magazines don't hold more than 10 rounds. Guess I won't shoot those people today."

"No its all good man,we can just carry some spare magazines. I got a buddy who can steal some AR15s."

These bans make no sense.

Wow , pretty generous will let you continue to posess items you already purchased with your hard work. That is after being fingerprinted, photo'd and approved by local authorities. Even better if you opt to you can deactivate your gun and be allowed to keep it. I'm starting to think I'm the problem, maybe I need to sit back, drink the Kool-Aid and live off the Govt.'s tit.
