Completely absurd.I'm confused about all of this though.
I thought when the lower was manufactured. That is manufacturing.
I also thought that when the gun is built from a finished completed lower, it is assembled.
How can a firearm be manufactured twice?
Once when the lower is manufactured and once when the firearm is completely assembled?
It just seems absurd.
Under that definition if you were to disassemble your completed firearm, clean it, and put it back together you have broken the law. Absurd.
