I hate to be the Grammar Nazi, but I think it should say "temporary blindness".

Banning barrel shrouds would also bad Arquebuses.

In fact, I think only a few 1830's underhammers, and some stockless medieval "Gonnes" would be lawful if such an act should pass.

Any chance you have a slightly larger version available?

After reading a recent draft of this bill and the similar legislative proposal about to hit the floor of the Maryland Senate, I am convinced that the typical drafter of assault weapon ban legislation has never seen anything gun-shaped outside of a children's toy store. The proposed assault weapon ban for Maryland listed two forbidden firearms: "AK-47" and, in a separate entry, "Automat Kalashnikov".

By the way, do you prefer links directly to the image or downloaded copies displayed on other people's websites?

Copy if you can, my server is getting hit pretty hard. Grab the hi-res version, too.

Do you have a link for the source, or is a-human-right.com good?

retiqlum: You forgot the "second pistol grip"

So does that mean that Old-style guns with the curved handle would be legal?

This law is as stupid as any I've seen. How about full-auto pistols? How about swords? Knife crimes are now more common in the UK than ever.

But they banned knives.

What's next: thretening people with rocks?

Progressive society my ass.

Pardon for the poor spelling.

I meant "threatening" not "thretening."

Well, Oleg

A poetic justice for this bill author would be to get shot from matchlock piece. Or even better yet, to die from "brick in the scull" disease.
