    • “I thought the site was about forgotten weapons”
      Indeed it is, however related laws can not be ignored. If you wish so how you would explain that U.S. shooter prefer closed-bolt sub-machinegun-look-a-like self-loading guns rather than open-bolt submachinegun-look-a-like self-loading guns?

    Tomatoes and cherries are both red but not the same …

  7. Charles de Gaulle was a great man for his country.There is a book “treates d’ esprit”, about his unique sense of humor in politics. It’s worth searching it in English if you don’t speak French.

    • So if I threatened a bank teller with an exposed rifle barrel without a receiver or stock or even ammo included, does that mean I threatened with a gun or with a clumsy bludgeon?

  8. I, for one, love these firearms laws overviews. They are interesting in and of themselves for curiousity’s sake, but also can give insights into why certain things are available/popular/developed in certain jurisdictions.
