Still reading the ATF Definition of Frame or Receiver and Identification of Firearms and they go great length citing chapter and verse on some court decisions trying to prop up the idea that without serial numbers, crimes will not be solved, and we will be overrun with violent criminals shooting left and right. Of course, they fail to mention that firearms tracing in real life has very little to do with crime solving, especially homicides and that the only place where the serial number of a gun leads to the identity of the killer only happens in TV shows and Hollywood movies.

The only thing that the tracing of a gun’s serial number does is to find out who was the last legal purchaser of said gun through a Federal Firearms Licensee. Serial numbers are not GPS, nor recording devices that keep track of every action done with the gun. They are as effective in crime reduction as the numbers in your mailbox.

But they are damned good for confiscation purposes which is why the Government loves them so.

  1. One might think that with so many new gun owners that fewer people would be drinking the anti-Rights Kool-Aid and would protest this BS. Sigh.

  2. Of course I’m sure they also cite the cases where judges have agreed that ar15s receivers for example do not fit the statutory definition of firearm. /sarc

  3. “…the only place where the serial number of a gun leads to the identity of the killer only happens in TV shows and Hollywood movies.”

    That is one of many problems with this new rule. The claim it will stop crime is based on fiction.
    .
    There is also this belief that criminals will choose to build their own guns, rather than steal them, or get a friend to do a straw purchase. That makes almost zero sense. There is no way you can construct an 80% firearm for less than it costs to buy one. And, remember, stealing one is cheapest of all.

    This is really just a step toward full firearm registration, and eventual confiscation.

    1. It’s hard to think of ANY firearms regulation that is useful (in the sense of reducing criminal violence). It is also hard to think of any that, by a rational analysis, even tries to do such a thing.
      The reality is that firearms regulations have always been intended to oppress the underclass of the day. The early ones were designed to disarm blacks, and later ones did the same sort of thing to other then-despised minorities.

    2. It is 100% true that we are seeing more kits and 80% builds showing up at crime scenes. Whether the bad guy is building those or they are also stolen is a resolution of information the news or government cannot be bothered to ask or provide. More is also relative; there are a shit load more 80% builds now than ever, of course we are going to see more. Statistics are also evil. For example a 500% increase in the number of 80% build guns showing up at crime scenes is really easy to achieve when you prior numbers were near zero.

      It is also still 100% true that we are seeing all of the same people committing said crimes for the same old reasons.

  4. “…later ones did the same sort of thing to other then-despised minorities”.

    Still. Only thing new, is which group gets to wear the star, so to speak.
