From The Federalist:
The Supreme Court has refused to hear “assault weapon” cases in the past. However, previous cases were lower profile and the result of narrow readings, not the backwards interpretation exhibited in Kolbe. In its bravado, the Fourth Circuit may have crossed a bridge too far, sparking national debate and possibly forcing the issue to finally make it to the Supreme Court.
The Kolbe court justified their holding through a misplaced reliance on Heller’s discussion of weapons not protected by the Second Amendment: “dangerous and unusual weapons” and those “most useful in military service – M-16 rifles and the like.” This reliance was completely out of context, most obviously because the M-16 and its stablemates are machine guns, not in common lawful use by civilians anywhere. This is a far cry from the pedestrian semi-automatic weapons Maryland actually targeted.

Review of the new round from RifleShooter.com:
Enter the 7.62x40WT. Based off the 7.62x40mm wildcat, the 7.62x40WT is based off 5.56x45mm parent case trimmed to 1.560″ and then re-sized to accept 30-caliber bullets. With factory offering from 110-125 grains, this cartridge seems to be the perfect hunting upgrade for the AR enthusiast. The only part of a 7.62x40WT rifle that is different from a standard .223 AR is the barrel. That’s it.

From The Bang Switch:
Here’s a not so well kept secret, there’s no such thing as an 80% lower in the eyes of the BATF — it’s either a gun or it isn’t. The phrase “80% lower” was coined by a cleaver marketer of incomplete AR lowers years ago and it stuck.
The actual regulation in the Gun Control Act that all this hubbub is based on states, “(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.”
