The “making a gun at home” outrage is now making the rounds amongst the Gun Control crowd. They are about 5 years or so too late since it was commonplace among AK enthusiasts to buy a parts kit, an AK flat (a piece of flat metal cut and drilled which later could be bent and heat treated thus becoming an AK receiver) and assemble your own rifle. It still had to follow the provision is ATF 992R and even parties were thrown where people got together and rented the necessary tools to bend the receivers (the owner of the receiver was the one that had to do the bending otherwise it would be illegal) and assemble the rifles. ATF put a skosh on that when it prohibited the importation of kits with barrels in 2005. Available barrels from overseas went from $65 to over $200 almost overnight and that is if you can find one. Tell me again about government regulations helping middle class & the poor.
The Gun Control crowd loves to characterize Gun Owners as a bunch of uneducated rednecks so it must have shocked the hell out of them when one of them rednecks actually created a functional AR-Type firearm from a 3D printer. I love when they keep underestimating us.
The Cult to Stop Gun
Rights Violence is happy that a similar effort was stopped when the company that leased the 3D printer reclaimed it. But that is not even the interesting part of CSGV’s post but the choice of one particular word:
According to Merriam-Webster:
Reclaim: to demand or obtain the return of. To recall from wrong or improper conduct.
Confiscate: appropriated by the government.
And one more definition:
Freudian Slip: an inadvertent mistake in speech or writing that is thought to reveal a person’s unconscious motives, wishes, or attitudes.
Need I say more?
