"A fifth state – South Dakota – has decided that guns made, sold and used within its borders no longer are subject to the whims of the federal government through its rule-making arm in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and two supporters of the growing groundswell say they hope Washington soon will be taking note.

South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds has signed into law his state's version of a Firearms Freedom Act that first was launched in Montana. It already is law there, in Tennessee, Utah and Wyoming, which took the unusual step of specifying criminal penalties – including both fines and jail time – for federal agents attempting to enforce a federal law on a "personal firearm" in the Cowboy State.

According to a report in the Dakota Voice, the new South Dakota law addresses the "rights of states which have been carelessly trampled by the federal government for decades."

"As the federal government has radically overstepped is constitutional limitations in the past year or so, an explosion of states have begun re-asserting their rights not only with regard to firearms, but also in shielding themselves against government health care, cap and trade global warming taxes, and more," the report said........."



"The Firearms Freedom Act website also reveals that other states either with pending legislation or pending plans include Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia......"

I'm a HUGE Para Ordnance fan and owner, but I'm not holding my breath on NC passing such a law. As long as Perdue is the governor, and the GA is in the power of the anti's from Raleigh and Charlotte, such a bill will never make it out of committee...

THROW THE BUMS OUT!

Vote, call and write, folks.

The frame/receiver was made in CA. I believe the slide and barrel was too, but I bought it seperately. (I purchased the frame as a "gunsmith receiver" with the intent on building a race gun when I was big into IPSC about 10 years ago)

However, my Para was actually put together by a gunsmith here in the US. It was Wayne Novak of Novak's Custom Guns in Parkersburg WV (the inventor of the Novak LoMount Sight). The receiver I had was for a standard 1911 non-ramped barrel, but the barrel I bought was a Para Ramped barrel, so the receiver needed to be milled. It has Ed Brown Memory Groove beavertail, slide stop and safety, and all Wilson internals. It has Wolff springs, and a Videki trigger, and Navidrex Rosewood grips and engraved grip screws from S&A. So it's not by any means a "stock" Para.

But it DOES shoot like a dream, and it looks very nice too. I'll be sure to bring it next time I come to Jacksonville for a meet...
