CSGV and an interesting choice of word.

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?

  1. It wasn’t inadvertent nor unconscious. They fully support confiscation of private property they don’t approve of.

    Note not a single word of an actual threat against a political candidate, only their made up ones.

  2. when I started my quest to build a homemade AR, I was surprised at how many people do this. I would guess that there are tens of thousands of legal, homemade firearms. Side note: my safety switch is labeled stop and hammer time.

  3. Insurrectionist purposes? Where in the hell did they get that? They must have read a different article from the one I read.

    1. in their mind anyone who WANTS to own a gun, let alone actually owns one, is irresponsible, an ignorant redneck[odd I never saw rosie o donnel as a redneck. Ignorant…that she was and is in spades] and now the new buzzword of the day..”insurrectionist” the outright ignorance and blatant hypocrisy in pretty much every word that leaves their mouths/keyboards is staggering really.

  4. I’ll bet they have another printer inside of a month – if not by next week. Someone will get them one.

    Way too many people are interested in this. The Genie is out of the bottle, and you just don’t get them back in there.

  5. CSGV really has started throwing around the word “insurrectionist” at just about everyone. They seem to think that it’s both wrong and dangerous to oppose any governmental effort for any reason. I don’t know why they think that, but I don’t think they’ve thought it all the way through.
