Anyone know about David Olofson vs ATF case?
Just happened to run into it on youtube. I thought it was interesting...
apparently this guy had a semi auto Olympic Arms AR15 and it malfunctioned at the range causing a burst...
at least that's what youtube and couple websites said

then I googled him, and wiki said that it actually had a 'auto' mode and the person who he lent it to shot it with it.
so I was curious if it was an illegal auto gun, or was it a semi that malfunctioned, then he went to prison for it?
Stuff like this boils my blood. and the fact that it was on national news (CNN) and went all the way upto supreme court for appeals to be denied is crazy. it scares me that our federal govt will leave you in the dark when they want and just not care. It makes me mad and upsets me.
