Judiciary Committee to assess need for firearm regulations

http://judiciary.senate.gov/hearings...ng.cfm?id=4771



Could be bad, could be nothing. It is very curious that they would make a move like this so close to election time, of course on the flip side they have nothing to lose.

Also, it could just be to just advance the BATFE reform bills, S941/HR2296, which would be a good thing.

However, this scares the hell out of me-

Also, heres something bittersweet-


If the committee does approve of S941, it will get alot easier to get post 86' machineguns for "film production". Very interesting.

-Allow importation and transfer of new machineguns by firearm and ammunition manufacturers for use in developing or testing firearms and ammunition, and training customers. In particular, ammunition manufacturers fulfilling government contracts need to ensure that their ammunition works reliably. S. 941 and H.R. 2296 would also provide for the transfer and possession of new machineguns by professional film and theatrical organizations.

Also, this is awesome

-Restore a policy that allowed importation of barrels, frames and receivers for non-importable firearms, when they can be used as repair or replacement parts.

Edit: sorry about the triple post, I have been doing to sleuthing and got caught up in it.
