Proposed ban on parts kits being introduced
Posted on July 18, 2013 by MAC
You knew it was going to happen. The Congress has tried just about everything else in terms of a gun ban, so now they’re turning their attention to banning parts kits. Why ban parts kits you may ask? Because John Zawahri, the man who shot-up a Santa Monica college campus last June, obtained his rifle by ordering parts online and building it himself as reported by the Huffington Post.
What the Huffington Post doesn’t tell us is how he obtained the lower receiver of the AR15 used in the shooting which is considered the firearm and isn’t something you can order online and have delivered to your house legally. Other news reports are saying that Zawahri ordered a legal 80% lower and followed instructions online on how to complete the machining processes to make the AR15 lower. A number of companies sell partially complete AR15 lowers for people to buy and build into complete rifles, which is perfectly legal in most cases. The BATF has no jurisdiction over firearms Americans make for themselves outside of the NFA laws which restrict short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, pistols with stocks, machine guns, suppressors, etc. which is the way it should be, IMHO.

Liberator PepperboxDefCadFrom Defense Distributed comes word that Chase Bank says it is "unable to retain" DefCad's account, and that PayPal has suspended services for Defense Distributed. Call me a suspicious sort, but I see federal pressure behind this sudden attempt to cut off financial support for Cody Wilson and company's efforts to demonstrate the unenforceabilityof laws restricting the ownership of firearms. Increasingly, governments are turning to behind-the-scenes attacks on their enemies rather than publicly flex muscles and invite debate. Defense Distributed supporters are suggesting alternative financial channels, including Bitcoin. And progress on new 3D-printed guns continues independently, to later be discussed in the DefCad forum.
That intriguing image to the right is a Liberator Pepperbox. It's worth reading through the thread to see the thought processes as the design is refined and critiqued. But repeaters overall are coming along nicely. The Trantor 224 moves beyond the pepperbox idea into an actual double-action revolver which has been written up as a scientific paper, if you're interested.
The big supposed vulnerability of 3D-printed guns is, allegedly, ammunition. Sure, we can make our own guns, say haters of an armed populace, but what are we going to put in them? I usually glance at my reloading press and roll my eyes at that, but it turns out that 3D printing may have a solution, after all.
