Default San Diego's ABC 10 on 'legal' and 'untraceable guns'

Team 10 purchased a piece of aluminum and watched as it was turned into a receiver for an AR-15. It can take four or five hours to do this, depending on how busy the shop is. Inside that machine shop is a computer-controlled milling machine that cuts out the aluminum.

What Team 10 ended up with was a receiver that can have parts added to it, such as the trigger, the barrel, the stock and the clip [sic]. Team 10 fired the AR-15 at a nearby range when the receiver was finished and it worked just fine.
Full story here.

I wonder whether building receivers for exposť TV stories counts as "for personal use?"
Questions about new laws? Seek answers here first: Assault weapons law? | Ammunition law? | Magazine law?

M1A, Mini-14, M1 Carbine, Garand? Not banned.

Remove BB or similar device after AW reg? We don't know.

The obvious fact that a machine shop can make a gun should only come as surprise to the stupidest viewer. Humans have been contriving nearly limitless types of weapons for hundreds of thousands of years, and will continue to do so as long as there is a perceived need to defend one's life and loved ones.

In most circumstances, bows, swords, spears, etc. are no less lethal than firearms and are as ancient as the human race itself. That fact is why banning manufacture of any common weapon (guns also being ancient technology) is like banning sticks and rocks.

Regulating such activity out of existence might even seem possible as long as there are plenty of other sources for defensive weapons, but if every legal source of life saving tools were to dry up, there will absolutely, always be alternate supply lines to take their place.

The Second Amendment is the one right that is so fundamental that the inability to exercise it, should the need arise, would render all other rights null and void. Dead people have no rights.

The lead in the article was worthy of an eyeroll but the teaser for the broadcast sounds like they've uncovered some underground, black-market, gun-show-loophole-esque operation.

Yep, dupe as already posted:
[Carol Ann voice]The Legislature is baaa-ack .... [/Carol Ann voice]

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
