Investing in Some Key AR Parts
Investing in Some Key AR Parts by James Wesley Rawles – Survival Blog
Binary Triggers In Your Future?
The recent terrorist attack in Las Vegas is spurring Federal lawmakers to introduce new legislation. These laws would ban any device or combination of parts that can “accelerate” the rate of fire of a semi-automatic firearm. This includes bumpfire stocks, bump triggers, “Hellfire” gadget triggers, binary triggers, light match grade triggers, and 3 mode triggers. Sadly, the U.S. National Rifle Association (NRA) gave up on this issue without a fight less than a week after the tragic massacre. This means that there is now a strong likelihood that some legislation will be passed within a month. Once passed, I suspect that it will be signed by President Trump and possibly go into effect on or before January 1st, 2018. The clock is ticking, folks!
In my blog writings, I’ve often mentioned the futility of so-called “gun control” legislation. In a country like the United States, with more guns in circulation than there are adult Citizens, enforcing gun laws is a Fool’s Errand. Liberals are now in the habit of calling gun control laws “Gun Safety laws”, which is disingenuous. They don’t want safety. They want disarmed peasants. I refer to these laws as “civilian disarmament” laws. Because in essence that is what they truly are: An attempt to rob the citizenry of their God-given right to keep and bear arms.
I’ve also gone on record for my opposition to all government mandated “bans” and “freezes” as well as any attempts at wage and price controls. History has repeatedly shown that legislated or dictated bans and freezes don’t work.
A Speculative Gamble
Are you a gun owner that is in the mood to take a speculative gamble? If so, you might consider investing in a few fast firing AR-15 triggers. What I’m recommending are two types: binary triggers and “3 mode” triggers. Why? Federal lawmakers are preparing legislation that would ban any device or combination of parts that can “accelerate” a semi-automatic firearm. (That is, faster than a standard trigger, but not truly full automatic fire.) Unlike bump fire stocks and “Hellfire” style triggers, which are inherently inaccurate, modern 3 mode and binary triggers are actually quite practical and relatively accurate to use.
Here is where the “gamble” comes in: Senator Feinstein’s current bill (that might soon come before the Senate) is an outright ban, with no Grandfather Clause. If passed and signed into law in its current form, it would wipe out any possible gains. In fact it could cause you you to lose all of your investment. (By law, they would have to be turned in for destruction!) However, given the history of American jurisprudence, the final wording of the law before passage will probably be supplemented with a Grandfather Clause. This would allow then-current owners to keep or re-sell their “banned” gun parts. If that happens, you might earn an overnight 100% or even 200% profit. A precedent for this is the 1994 to 2004 Federal ban on so-called “assault weapons” and on magazines over 10 round capacity. During the 10 years of that ban, some gun and magazine owners made handsome profits.
