Let’s face it, “the government” can ban anything it wants and if the courts don’t accept or won’t Hear your arguments wtf are you going to do about it?

For decades the government proclaimed, in writing, that a simple plastic stock was perfectly legally to produce, own, and use. Then, just on the whim of the President, with no vote by Congress, such pieces of plastic were declared illegal and it’s possession a serious federal felony. No congressional vote, no due process, no reimbursement for seized private property.

The important thing here is that the courts rejected or refused to hear any arguments regarding the legality of how such a ban was implemented. Even though those arguments were very sound and based in Constitutional law.

If the government can do that for pieces of plastic it certainly could get away with doing it with ammunition, specific kinds of firearms, or widgets for that matter.
