Thanks for the followup on my questions Bill, good clarification on the issues at hand.
It seems there's a fairly fine line between a "tool" and an "accessory", and the distinction should be made as clear as possible, whenever possible. Since the DOJ refuses to play ball and in fact seems intent on muddying the waters and spreading FUD, it becomes incumbent on us to provide this delineation. As usual, you've done the California firearms community another great service.
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense?
