Conversion Devices

The Star Bulletin:

The FBI arrested two veteran Halawa Correctional Facility prison guards over the weekend for allegedly arranging to obtain a device that can convert semiautomatic rifles into fully automatic machine guns.

Ronald Philip Lee Jr. was arrested Saturday when he accepted a mailed package containing the device, while Patrick H. Sonsona was arrested when he tried to get the device from Lee, the FBI said.

What sort of device? A shoestring? A rubberband?

No, I’m guessing they fell for the Pre 81 DIAS scam.

Update: I should be clear on the shoestring/rubberband thing. In light of the Akins Accelerator issue, why is it that a rubberband that facilitates bump-firing has not been ruled illegal? Same concepts. The shoestring is actually illegal and subject to regulation, which is a bit silly.

And it is also worth pointing out that if these guys did get a Pre 81 DIAS, then they have not broken the law unless they actually are also in possession of an AR-15, per current rulings.

Confusing, ain’t it? Try to keep up.

    Would be nice to have more details. Could be they had a lightning link or a AK conversion kit or whatever. Jack.

    IIRC the DIAS Has to be registered before 86 for it to be legal. I believe there are a lot of RDIAS out there. Same thing with the LL.

    Your right about the possesion of the AR though, They may have access to an AR at work so maybe thats what they are going of of.

    More details please.
