Firestorm legal issue?
Posted 06 June 2006 - 07:09 AM
California residents should note that California penal code section 12020-12040 prohibits sale, import, manufacture or possession of trigger activators, and has been applied to products which, although designed for the firearms industry, are very similar in design and function to the Firestorm Crank. Residents of states with restrictive gun laws would do well to review their laws before purchasing a product which might not be legal in their area.

Until someone decides to use it for the wrong reasons. That's the story with just about every other thing that, used for it's intended purpose, could be considered perfectly safe. As soon as it falls into the hands of the wrong person...that's when it becomes an illegal weapon. It's the sad truth. But, I'm not going to let that stop me from continuing to use it for it's intended purpose, in a safe manner. I figure it wont become a problem until the law finds out people are using them for the wrong reasons and starts cracking down. That's when they'll "Lay down the law"....sorry couldn't help the cliche moment..it used to be my motto and all.

On a paintball marker. But a lot of these crank-style accessories are easily modified to fit real firearms, which is a case similiar to the one functional paintball marker suppressors have already established NFA restriction precedence for. I'm not saying I agree with that, but it is the way it is. Most of the firearm cranks I have seen are for .22s, which (the cranks) I understand are illegal in California. Since the Firestorm crank could be easily modified to fit a .22 trigger guard, it falls under the California firearm restrictions against devices that increase ROF above semi-auto. Actually, I'm surprised it took California this long to catch on to the Firestorm cranks.
