Retraction Of The Retraction
The relevant law is 925(d)(3), which states "it shall be unlawful to import any frame, receiver, or barrel of such firearm which would be prohibited if assembled". It's those last few words that are interesting, as there's many firearms which can legally be assembled from imported parts as long as no more than 10 imported parts (from a list of 20 parts deemed to be "significant") are used.
Anyways, I believe we have Gonzales to thank for this one. I apparently didn't give Ashcroft's pro-2nd efforts enough credit.
This is why I enjoy casting third-party votes so much.
