Given that SHTF in Massachusetts, it seems The Happening down there warrants a General. Included herein are MA legal guns, current events, WTF happened, and dealers still doing business as usual.
1. WTF Happened?
>Out of the blue, with no warning whatsoever, the Massachusetts Attorney General (Maura Healy; please come up with appropriate nicknames/memes) decided to reinterpret 18 years of Massachusetts state law http://www.mass.gov/ago/public-safety/awbe.html. She put an instant ban on "MA Compliant" ARs and AKs, plus other guns, effective the second it became public.
Wait, OTHER guns? Whatchu talkin 'bout?
>Another part of her spiel was the following:
>Similarity Test: A weapon is a Copy or Duplicate if its internal functional components are substantially similar in construction and configuration to those of an Enumerated Weapon. Under this test, a weapon is a Copy or Duplicate, for example, if the operating system and firing mechanism of the weapon are based on or otherwise substantially similar to one of the Enumerated Weapons.
>Interchangeability Test: A weapon is a Copy or Duplicate if it has a receiver that is the same as or interchangeable with the receiver of an Enumerated Weapon. A receiver will be treated as the same as or interchangeable with the receiver on an Enumerated Weapon if it includes or accepts two or more operating components that are the same as or interchangeable with those of an Enumerated Weapon. Such operating components may include, but are not limited to: 1) the trigger assembly; 2) the bolt carrier or bolt carrier group; 3) the charging handle; 4) the extractor or extractor assembly; or 5) the magazine port.

>US Navy's newest $12.9bn supercarrier doesn't work: Most expensive warship ever built 'struggles with jets taking off and landing' according to internal memo as delivery is delayed again
> * $12.9 billion warship, the USS Gerald R. Ford, is not ready for combat, the Department of Defense says
> * The massive 'supercarrier' is the most expensive Navy warship ever built and is due to be commissioned this year
> * The ship delivery is scheduled for November, more than two years late of its original date of September 2014
> * A government memo says 'poor or unknown reliability issues' are behind the latest roll out problems with the ship
>'Unless these issues are resolved, which would likely require redesigning, they will significantly limit the CVN-78’s ability to conduct combat operations,' the Defense Department's Michael Gilmore wrote
Holy fucking shit, what a mess!
