Private citizens cannot manufacture firearms nor alter them,convert to full auto ect,without a manufacturers license. Black powder firearms CAN be made by private citizens as those are sometimes purchased in "kit" form(Dixie Gun Works has a full line). Final finishing and fitting done by the owner of the kit. Black powder arms may also be sent thru the USPS,unlike modern fixed cartridge firearms. Private citizens CAN use modern parts kits(AKs,ARs ect) to refurbish EXISTING arms they already own as the recievers are already in the system and not part of the "kit". OR you can buy a reciever and build your weapon around it. As the reciever will be recorded and sold as a complete arm in the eyes of then ATF. You fill out a 4473 and undergo the Quick check just like any other arms sale. But to mill/machine out a reciever(firearm)? No.

And felony convictions do not always result in permanent bans for possessing firearms.
"18 U.S.C. 922(g) is the federal law that prohibits anyone ever convicted of any felony to ever possess any firearm either inside or outside of his home. The federal punishment for felon gun possession is up to 10 years in prison."

I don't see anything that states, let alone implies, that some convicted felons can own firearms. Appears that all felons are prohibited from owning firearms, permanently.

Actually, you're wrong. Persons in the commercial manufacturing of firearms must comply with licensing in order to be in the business of making or selling firearms. Persons not in the commercial business of making firearms are well within their rights to make firearms for non commercial purpose so long as the type doesn't violate state law, the National Firearms ACT of 1934.

Nope, you just don't know what you're talking about...like most elmer fudds you shoot from the hip with a 7th grade education, lol. The one firearm that I made was an 1100 into a sawed off shotgun (SBS to be technical) and the other was an AR15 into a 7.5 inch barreled Short Barreled Rifle. If I want to make a regular rifle or pistol, I can do so for non-commercial purpose and it doesn't even need a serial number unless at a later date I want to sell it someone and so long as I'm not in the commercial business of selling guns, I can do so. I'd be within my rights to sell a pistol I made, so long as I identified myself as the maker and my maker's serial number on the reciever. I'd be within my rights to sell that, just like any diptstick elmer fudd has a right to sell their stinking mossberg or ruger, you dolt.

Maybe instead of preaching that illegal aliens should obey the law, you should know the law, first.

You should refrain from telling people they "don't know", if obviously, you don't know.

Not only are you incorrect, but there are federal stipulations prohibiting convicted misdemeanor offences from EVER owning a weapon;

"Under federal law, anyone who has a
criminal domestic violence conviction is barred from possessing a gun. Forever. As 18
U.S.C.§ 922(g)(9) says,“[i]t shall be unlawful for any person ... who has been
convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence ... to possess in or
affecting commerce any firearm or ammunition.”

You're going to work your dumb ass into prison, LOL.

Writing from the Supreme Court of the State of Ohio:

"Specifically, 18 USC § 922(g) identifies two instances
when the firearms prohibition is triggered due to
domestic violence. Pursuant to 18 USC § 922(g)(8),
a person subject to a qualifying protection order is
prohibited from shipping, transporting, possessing or
purchasing any firearm, when the protected party is
the person’s intimate partner or child of such intimate
partner or person. This prohibition stays in place for
the duration of the qualifying protection order. The
other instance is cited under 18 USC § 922(g)(9),
which prohibits a person convicted of a misdemeanor
crime of domestic violence from shipping,
transporting, possessing or purchasing any firearm or
ammunition for life."

You are full of crap.

Permanently.

You do know there are exemptions?

Here are two:
1) those "pertaining to antitrust violations, unfair trade practices, restraints of trade, or other similar offenses relating to the regulation of business practices," per 18 U.S.C.§ 921(a)(20)(A); and

2) felony convictions from foreign countries, per Small v. United States,--- U.S.---, 2005 WL 946620 (April 26, 2005).

Next: do you want to talk about felons who have their records expunged?

“always”
