All the pre-ban stands for it was imported prior to 1994 When the Stupid Bradey Bill went into effect and lasted until 2004. By the way it accomplishes ZERO! Since only 1% of the crimes committed during that 10 year period were committed with rifles. Anyway the weapon is perfectly legal to purchase and own. But I would not wait long with the goofballs we have in office trying to ban the sale of all what the term Assault Rifles ! Which are not Assault Rifles I might add they are semi auto rifles. Assault Rifles are full auto. Anyway if you can purchase it for a reasonable price, it functions and is in good position you are good to go! ******* However if the "Riverside" on your avatar section is Riverside in the state of Commiefornia you need to check with one of the other guys here on the forum or call a local gun dealer! I live in Tennessee and know what the position on such a weapon is in the majority of the other states. California is another ball game! There are certain restriction there on ARs like mag buttons, and other similar weapons like the AKs. that could violate their crazy laws.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
