Thread: Is a Pistol or Revolver a "firearm"?

  1. Rent-a-cop

    In Rodney-Dale Class v. North Carolina Department of Transportation (11 CVS 1559) Superior Court Judge Ridgeway agreed with Judge May and the Attorney General's office that the police are private contractors, and must be sued in their private capacity.

    I ask the Attorney Generals office, why then are our tax dollars being used to defend private corporations?

    Pistols, rifles, and shotguns are firearms. So are some weird iterations thereof. A gun is a big sucker, like a cannon, that shoots enormous rounds. Just ask someone in the Navy.

    G, you pretty much asked for it:

    Istanbul was Constantinople
    Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
    Been a long time gone, Constantinople
    Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night

    Every gal in Constantinople
    Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
    So if you've a date in Constantinople
    She'll be waiting in Istanbul

    Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
    Why they changed it I can't say
    People just liked it better that way

    So take me back to Constantinople
    No, you can't go back to Constantinople
    Been a long time gone, Constantinople
    Why did Constantinople get the works?
    That's nobody's business but the Turks

    Istanbul (Istanbul)

    Guess I am a bit lost on this, who would not consider a firearm a firearm?

  8. Everyone, including the "Attorney" likes to quote STATUTES and CODES...
    But where is the LAW, passed by Congress? Surely such law must exist, right?
    If it's not LAW, then...

    The piece of text originally quoted in the post was from the Firearms Act, and out of context, you can't tell that it's specifically referring to machine guns, and it defines a firearm as a short-barreled rifle. I read the whole ATF guide, and if you get lost with all the heads, sub-heads, and paragraph heads, you can get really confused about what the heck they're talking about.

  10. My local law library has 3 floors with shelves full of CODES and STATUTES to attempt to replace 4 pages...the original Constitution for the united States of America (note the caps). And the Second Amendment is very clear...

    And as for the Attorney...the origonal 13 Amendment is very clear also...
    "If any citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive, or retain any title of nobility or honour, or shall without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office, or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince, or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them."

    And yes, I have The Journal of the Senate that shows it passed 26:1.

  11. Esq. (Esquire)

    Esquire A rank next below that of Knight. Besides those Esquires who are personal attendants of Knights of Orders of Knighthood, this title is held by all attendants on the person of the Sovereign, and all persons holding the Sovereign's commission being of military rank not below Captain.
