How exactly would you know how Cowardly Pacificts intended provisions to be interpreted?

Also, how is this not legislating within a repeal:
Noting that the Child Firearm Safety Act does not define "firearm", potentially including:
Recreational soft air and paintball guns,
Signaling guns, and
Pellet guns for pest control,

Seems to me like the WA is now defining what a firearm is, within a repeal.

Since it defines what potential definitions of "firearm" would be, then it looks like under the assumption it's legislating for some ban or restriction on those items.
social democracy, environmental protection, universal healthcare, free college, social equality, LGBT, pro-choice,
GOP, corporate socialism, Trump, neoconservatism, white supremacy, extreme political views, corruption

Ooc: Authorial intent isn't relevant. Intent can be derived from textual cues.

This is a list of examples. Not of definitions. There is no such concern.
Edit:

Further to that, how is this not illegal based upon the fact it is nothing more than "this isn't defined, that isn't defined......" If this repeal goes through with these clauses intact, does that mean we can now make repeal arguments based solely upon nation sovereignty concerns, because that is exactly what this here repeal boils down to.


Failure to address a topic adequately is not an appeal to national sovereignty. It addresses flaws specific to the text. These arguments aren't even a stretch. They're just wrong.
