Now, that you know what the “firearm” part of an AR 15 is, let me show you what IS NOT a firearm, namely, the upper receiver.This scary looking thing is an upper receiver: Here’s another less scarier variation of an “upper”: The upper receiver is what gets latched onto the lower receiver in order to make a working weapon.
The thing to remember here is that the upper receiver IS NOT, repeat, IS NOT A FIREARM!The only part that we have discussed herein that is a firearm is ONLY the stripped lower receiver.And, since the upper reciever, the handle and the trigger groups ARE NOT firearms, anybody can legally purchase these non-firearm parts individually or, they can buy an “AR 15 kit” with some or all of the non-firearm parts - without a background check.That’s right, ANYBODY can buy an AR 15 kit and build their own rifle. Well, if you’re a rifle hobbyist you have the freedom to put together a rifle to your liking; perhaps you like one type of trigger group over another or, the barrels from one manufacture is preferred over another, etc, etc. In other words, so long as you DO NOT intend to sell or transfer ownership to someone else, you can make your own firearm per federal law!At this moment, the big hulabaloo is about this rifle, the AR 15. First off, we need to understand what constitutes as a firearm and what does not and, secondly, we need to see what a “lower receiver” for an AR 15 is.
However, you can - right now - assemble this rifle with absolutely no serial numbers or identifying marks for your own personal use. If confiscation ever takes place, by law, NO LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY WILL EVER KNOW THAT YOU HAVE A RIFLE, that is what this means. First off, according to the ATF a firearm is: (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; (B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon; (C) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer; or (D) any destructive device.
For our purposes, it is the second definition that we will analyze, that is, what constitutes as a frame or a receiver?
Below is a lower receiver of an AR 15: This is the part of an AR 15 that is, by law, THE ACTUAL FIREARM.
The lower receiver seen here is a “stripped” lower receiver which basically means that there are no moving parts in this lower receiver, this is simply a piece of metal with a serial number that, if you intend to buy, must pass a background check in the same manner as you would if you were to buy any other firearm.
Here is another picture of the lower receiver with added parts: This is a “completed lower receiver,” it has the shoulder stock, hand assembly (the part you hold) and it also has the trigger group (the trigger mechanism and springs).
THERE’S ONLY ONE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO PICTURES, ALTHOUGH BOTH ARE FIREARMS AND YOU HAVE TO GET A BACKGROUND CHECK - PER FEDERAL LAW - IN ORDER TO PURCHASE EITHER OR BOTH OF THESE PIECES, IT IS ONLY THE LOWER RECEIVER THAT IS A FIREARM PROPER.
