    The critics of that bill obviously have not bothered to read either the US Constitution nor the federal regulations! As long as the firearms can be positively proven to be a product of Alaska and that product has not left Alaska, then Alaska has every right to do just what Montana has already done.

    Federal firearms law and even Drug laws are rooted in the interstate commerce act. The reason the DEA gets away with raids on medical pot suppliers is that there is no way to distinguish exactly where the pot was grown.

    Pops, I was the one posting about Montana, but this is the first I heard about Alaska.

    We'll see who goes to court first and what the outcome will be.

    Thanks for the heads up and hopefully we'll be able to have machine guns soon.

    I wonder if the Feds. will be able to get around the State Laws by claiming the machinery, tools, billots, cutting oil etc. used to make the offending firearms all came from interstate commerce. That might create the "leagle fiction" that the firearms were involved in interstate commerce. If it holds up in court though, think of all the states with local firearms plants. I love it if it will work.

    Very good point. Very good indeed. ALL of the materials that went into said firearms and ammunition, as well as all the equipment on which they are made would ALL have to come from Alaska (or Montana). I can definately see the Feds trying to say that the Interstate Commerce Act will still apply if ANY of the materials or machinery came from outside of the state.

    One thing to remember is the SCOTUS ruling that a farmer could not grow a separate plot of wheat for his own use and be free of govt regs. They said his little family garden plot of wheat being "taken out of the market" would "hurt the economy" of the state and thus was to be regulated and taxed.

    I don't have the cite at hand.

    I couldn't afford amunition for a machine gun. My wife allready complains that I'm out in the powder keg reloading all the time and I normally shoot sx shooters and single shots. It would be fun to build your own single shot with a 1 inch bore though!

    Ponycar, liked your picture. Question, if a state did secede, would we need a passport and visa to enter new country? Would we have to submit to searches and seasures of personal property before being allowed to cross the border? Do you think the Border Patrol would be able to patrol the border and stop 100% of illegal exits? I think yes on all counts.
