So what does this mean for those of us without the legal background? Time to start a corporation to get an Assault Weapons permit? Or just a smackdown for the DOJ because they are trying their usual underground regulations again?

It doesn't mean a whole lot. It just means that a corp can get the permit, rather than everyone working in the corp, which is how it's done now.

The permits are still "may-issue" though, so they're worth about as much as our CCW's.

True, yet the reason we felt compelled to bring this forward was because the DOJ was simply not following the written law! Their regulations did not comport with the Penal Code. As a firearms manufacturer, I am obligated to follow the PC diligently. I take pride in doing so as I have great respect for the law, law enforcement, and our government.

I sent DOJ an email politely outlining where their process was in derogation of the PC. Perhaps I'm too naive, but I expected that they would simply fix their oversight. Bob Berthold was very responsive, but his obligation was to forward my concern on to his supervisors and/or counsel. The DOJ higher-ups refused to reply and refused to change their application process. ...ever.

You know it's sad when you have to take legal action to get the chief law enforcement officer of the state to follow the law. :(

It's indeed pitiful that we have to sue nearly every law enforcement chief, sheriff, and the AG herself to compel them to uphold their oath, follow the laws of this state and nation, and respect the Constitution.

But, we will.

A law needs to be passed to close this loophole :D

Yeah, they tend not to like doing that :)
