Your Hands Are Machine Guns

It’s The Law: Your Hands Are Machine Guns

by Bill Olsen

Title 18:922.

(3) The term “”firearm” means

(A) any weapon (including a starter gun), which will or is designed to, or may readily be converted, to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive;

Question. “any weapon”?

Seeing that the Law does not define “any weapon” or “may readily be converted”, by construction of law you must use the “common” definition at the time the law was written.

Definitions from Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary.

Weapon: Any instrument of offense: any thing used or designed to be used in destroying or annoying an enemy.

Readily: Quickly, promptly, easily.

Converted: Turned or changed from one substance or state to anther.

My fist is a “weapon” if I punch you, and a “deadly weapon” if I hit you with the right force and way. Now, I can “readily convert” my fist to form a pistol/rifle grip and a trigger finger that can hold and pull a trigger “to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive”, therefore my hand IS in fact a “Firearm”.

One would then have to come to the conclusion, that my parents “manufactured” me without a “license”. Therefore, if one does not have a “License” to “manufacture” the BATFE will confiscate your hand(s) as illegal “Firearms”. One then must assume that the BATFE will chop-off your hand(s) in order to confiscate the “illegal contraband”.

Therefore, I must have a serial number placed on my hand(s) as prescribed by law. The law states that the “manufacturer” must “permanently” mark the “Firearm” with the manufacture’s Name, City, State, and unique Identifying number.

Surly the above definitions of “weapon”, “readily”, and “converted” apply to my hands under Title 18’s definition of “Firearm”.
