Post-Ban, Current-Ban, What can we legally do?
« on: December 18, 2017, 08:49:08 PM »
Live in Texas.

If you have a lower receiver that was made and purchased during the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act, also known as the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban, do you still have to follow it?  I realize that the law expired in 2004 and was not renewed.  If your firearm was subject to the law from 1994 to 2004, is it still subject to it now?  Could a person legally install previously banned features on that firearm now?  Could someone point me to documentation for, against, or otherwise?

I have asked in other places and have gotten mixed answers.  Some folks that I asked said if it was manufactured during the ban, it would always be subject to the ban.  Other folks claim that since the ban expired, it no longer applies.  What it the actual legal answer?

Might put this question in the "ask the Lawyers" section for a legal answer. Oops - I see you have already. Sorry
