Restrictive and cumbersome gun regulations in some states may make non-offenders feel like common criminals. States, such as California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Illinois, are prime examples of places where strict gun laws put into place by state-elected officials make obtaining guns legally harder than ever.

In 1993, Olympic Arms created what they claim was only a prototype of an AR-15 pistol chambered in 7.62x39mm, the model OA-93. When word got out they were developing the pistol, the gun community was quick to tell them to stop. While at the 1994 SHOT Show, Olympic Arms unveiled the pistol. Olympic Arms was quick to claim the company was not “in the ammunition business and unaware of a problem.” Very shortly after, the ATF banned the importation of steel core 7.62x39mm ammunition.
