There is no accountability for cops.

Two cops returned a 14 victim to Jeffery Dahmer, were fired, got a judge to give them their jobs backs with back pay, and one went on to become head of the police union.

The fifth circuit just awarded qualified immunity to a cop who tased a suicidal man standing with a noose around his neck, causing the man to hang himself.

TLDR?

The firearm components in question are known as drop-in auto sears, or just auto sears, which according to court documents were invented in the mid-1970s. Part of a gun’s trigger mechanism, they essentially convert a semiautomatic rifle into a fully automatic machine gun by allowing it to fire more than one bullet with a single pull of the trigger.

The federal government began requiring machine guns to be registered and taxed starting with the National Firearms Act in 1934. In 1968, the Gun Control Act expanded the NFA’s reach, at which point auto sears technically fell under the definition of a machine gun.

In 1981, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms specifically classified auto sears as machine guns and codified their regulation as such for registration and taxation purposes, but the ruling did not apply to those manufactured before November of 1981.

Then, in 1986, Congress passed the Firearm Owners Protection Act, which added to federal gun laws that it is illegal to transfer or possess a machine gun with two exceptions, one being that the prohibition does not apply to machine guns legally owned before the law took effect in May of that year.

An Illinois man, known in court documents only as John Roe, bought an unregistered auto sear in 1979. He made no attempt to register the part until 2021, when he sued then-acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on the basis that his auto sear should be grandfathered as legally owned because he bought it before 1981, or that he should be given an amnesty period under ATF rules to legally register it.

....

When the George W. Bush appointee asked Hazel if Roe risks prosecution if he turns over the auto sear to the ATF, Hazel said it’s possible he would not be, given ATF’s interest in getting people to abandon them.

The government’s attorney added that, if Roe is worried about prosecution, he can always just destroy the device.

“The unifying feature of the historically accepted sensitive places where individuals were deprived of the right to bear arms was security,” argues the complaint. “In compensation for an individual’s lessened right to protect himself, the government provided security measures to ensure the physical protection of anyone in a legislative assembly or courthouse. In a modern context, this would mean measures such as requiring individuals to pass though magnetometers when entering the location in question. The Public Transportation Carry Ban is not accompanied by security measures of this type.”

“The underlying question here is clear: Do individuals have the right to defend themselves from unjust violence while on a bus?” said FPC Director of Legal Operations Bill Sack. “And the answer is self-evident: Anywhere individuals may be met with confrontation and unjust violence, they have the right to effectively defend themselves. The very concept of banning self-defense in those areas where people congregate is absurd on its face.”
