A 911 call was made from a Wal-Mart in Beavercreek, Ohio. The caller stated that a man had a rifle, and was pointing it at people and kids. Police responded, and when they confronted him, they fired upon him quickly when they say he started to raise the rifle he was carrying. Afterwards, it was found that the firearm was actually a pellet gun, not the deadly weapon that the police feared. The 911 caller also admitted that he lied about what he saw on the call. It’s a terrible mess. But there are a couple of things I would like to set straight.
Any firearm that fires more than one bullet when you pull the trigger is considered a “Machine Gun” under US law. It doesn’t matter if it fires in bursts, if its full auto, or even if it fires out of multiple barrels. People are always looking for different ways to get around this restriction and increase your rate of fire, without actually turning into a “Machine Gun” and having its sale restricted. One of the more popular items are bump fire stocks. A new contender is the bi-directional trigger by Liberty Gun Works.
You’ve probably seen the story about McGruff the Crime Dog by now. His home was raided, and they found 1000 pot plants, 27 firearms including a grenade launcher, and 9,000 rounds of ammo. There are two assumptions that people are making when they first read about it, and both are wrong.

You may remember Jim Carrey from those movies that you used to find hilarious, or from that picture of him in a women’s bathing suit with his then significant other Jenny McCarthy, and probably not much else in recent years. That was until it was announced that he would be starring in Kick-Ass 2 as gun toting vigilante Colonel Stars and Stripes. Who wouldn’t want to see this former funny man as a crazy super hero. It worked with Nick Cage, so why not Jim Carey?
FPSRussia is one of the most popular Youtube Channels out there, and if you subscribe to him, or care about gun rights and firearms, I would suggest you also subscribe to RatedRR.
The government requires that the lower receiver of a rifle be registered and maintain a serial number, even if sold separately from every other part of a rifle. The lower receiver by itself is viewed as a firearm by Uncle Sam. 2nd AM Arms has a novel idea to get around this, and possibly even future restrictions on “Assault Weapons,” they’re only selling you an 80% complete AR-15 lower receiver.
