Just wondering if anyone knows their actual " testing" standards. I heard it involves a ladder drop ( yeah because thats realistic). Obviously a attempt to make manufactures go through bs.

I heard they set up a regular IDPA target at 7 yards and shoot at it a few times. If the rounds suddenly turn straight for the toy babies (they prefer cabbage patch dolls) that are at least 10 yards away from the intended target, they deem the pistol a baby killer and it doesn't get added to the roster. Most modern polymer handguns are known for this and usually just known as "semi automatic pistols with 100 round clips" by the media.

They have 5 volunteers from each group - pro-guns and anti-guns.

All 10 fire the gun, then fill out a questionnaire.

Results are analyzed by the DNC.

Unbiased decision is made.

And then Facebook must certify, by way of Snopes, that the results were not fake.

Volunteers must answer 2 questions true or false...
1. Can shooting an AR-15 cause PTSD.
2. Will using a 30 caliber magazine clip in an AR-15 cause full auto fire resulting in 1/2 second mag dumps?

Answering both incorrectly gets selection to panel approved...
because knowing nothing about rifles qualifies you for pistols

the standards must have been made by someone on my home owners association board. my HOA has a rule that anything in a backyard that is visible from anywhere outside the backyard by a 6 foot tall person standing on a 2 foot tall box must be approved by the HOA board - because there are so many easily offended 8 foot tall people in my neighborhood. given that our fences are 6 feet all, that means everything, from my patio furniture to my kids nerf football, must technically be approved. idiots.

No wonder there are so few firearms on the list.

I like to throw my guns across my front yard into a fence. I make my wife wear a motorcycle helmet (and nothing else) while I do this. Thus far not once has a gun fired, but my neighbors are understandably confused.

Micro-stamping requirements stop new guns from even being considered for drop testing.

Is the fence wood or chainlink?

Full face helmet or simple brain bucket?

Look it up in the constitution. I believe that is where they describe it:rolleyes:

After reading the 26 pages...how can anyone say with a straight face that the regulations don't infringe upon the right?
