Sort of related:

We can't import Russian firearms because of the sanctions. If we can normalize relations and roll back some stupid ammunition related regulations, we can be rolling in Saigas and VEPRs in no time.

Cody Wilson, you magnificent bastard.


Didn’t we talk about this like 5 years ago?


Follow up: 21 states attorney generals filed for TRO, and someone apparently prevailed in a TRO order against the State Department. Defense Cad will ultimately prevail, but *woodchipper* that judge and whatever horse they rode in on. This is basically super stupid judicial drama that may end up costing the plantiff money, which is probably what its intended to do.

A U.S. judge on Tuesday blocked the imminent release of blueprints for 3-D printed guns, hours before they were set to hit the internet, after several states sued to halt publication of designs to make weapons that security screening may not detect.

If I read all that right, a solution he doesn't offer is to assign more parts serial numbers. No?

We can do that, we have the technology.

What if serial number etchers have a religious opposition to applying their craft to weapons?

Thanks for reading, hopefully you found it useful.

Some components are not necessarily specific to guns. It would be feasible to design a gun with the vast majority of parts being dual use. Its kind of hard to regulate machined or forged parts.

The barrel is probably the most difficult to make part, which maybe would be the most logical place to stamp the serial number, despite the mechanical implications.

The proposition that we regulate components that could be used in a gun is not really doable. We could regulate components for specific designs that use components with known dimensions. I guess California could try to regulate all AR parts. I'm pretty sure you'd find competing products faster than the legislature could understand and ban the new iterations.

It took California something like 10 years to understand the bullet button workaround for the assault weapon ban. Legislators just don't understand this area*. It works to the pro-gun sides benefit.

*There's no reason to expect that they understand anything else any better

This is kind of like the NY state equivalent of operation chokepoint, they just decided to leave sexworkers out of it this time around.
