ALERT: Cali Tyrants intro Bill to BAN "Parts Kits" for your AK & AR! Chase terminates Defense Dist. Acct! PayPal suspends It!

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.

Chase Bank terminates DEFCAD account. PayPal suspends DefDist account.

UPDATE 1:

Banks, PayPal Spurn Defense Distributed, But 3D-Printed Gun Development Continues

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.

Nevada is no more than a 3

Nevada is no more than a 3 hours drive for me. All I have to do is walk into one of their gun stores, purchase the parts, assemble a semi-auto rifle, and bring it back home to California.

These laws are stupid.

Isn't Paypal

owned by mega-rich Libertarian, Peter Thiel?

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

yup: 'Bilderberg' Thiel & corporatist 'libertarian' Elon Musk

who had his Tesla motors bailed out by the FED. Reserve both helped start/co-invest/co-found it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PayPal

guess it's now owned by eBAY.

but just because they call themselves 'libertarians' don't mean they are; as you know, that's why there's a long standing feud between the KOCHtopus CATO/Reason Fdn. 'Beltway-faketarians'/faketarians/beltarians/cosmotarians, etc, etc, etc. vs. Mises/Rothbard/RP.

so...

you mean they still took the bailout? because you'd have to take one in the first place, to pay them back, right?

how 'libertarian' of them.

still, if it's like anything else, the devil's in the details. like GM, I doubt that they actually paid them back, even when they publicize it.

then, again, despite the common misconception, Ford, Toyota and Harley Davidson and McDonalds all got bailed out by the FED.Res., too: it's just HOW and how long and under what structure the 'loan guarantees' were made: you're never gonna see that 'money' go anywhere but written off in accounting ledger.

It's all numerical and semantics alchemy.

the question is, how does the 'brand govt,' and any corporatist brands have any credibility, when they speak, at this juncture in history??

a bailout, is a bailout, is a bailout.

definitions being what they are, there's nothing 'libertarian' about being bailed out by taxpayers. let alone, moral, or economically sound, about it. It all stinks to high corporatist heaven.

REASON blogs on Cody Wilson's Defense Distributed having

his JP Morgan Chase bank account terminated and PayPal suspending it, on short to little notice:
