I don’t think a Garand is covered by said law, because it doesn’t have any of the list of accompanying features (thumbhole stock, pistol grip, flash suppressor, etc).
A No. 5 Enfield (”Jungle Carbine”) is, however, covered, because it accepts a detachable magazine and has a flash suppressor.
Tyrants and morons abound.
Re: Jungle Carbine - A bolt action “assault rifle. Yeah, right.
But a Garand can be equipped with a pistol grip thereby creating a dreaded "assault weapon". The burden needs to be on the government not only to demonstrate that "assault weapons" are dangerous and unusual, but that equipping a rifle with a pistol grip, is what makes it dangerous and unusual. Some might think it strange that the addition of a three-ounce piece of plastic to a rifle justifies outlawing it and sentencing the possessor to ten years in prison.
Setting aside the issue of what our Founders would think of the infringement due to an arm being "unusual", I'm pretty sure they didn't intend to outlaw "dangerous" arms. The danger they feared was that of being disarmed.
