Cody Wilson Thwarts Another Attempt To Stop Ghost Guns [Video]

The ATF is expected to adopt a new rule requiring that the metal parts hobbyists used to manufacture their DIY weapons be registered as legal firearms. So Cody Wilson made those parts unnecessary.Full text, links, and credits: https://reason.com/video/2022/01/12/cody-wilson-thwarts-another-attempt-to-stop-ghost-guns/——————Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/ReasonTVLike us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz​​​ineFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason​​​Reason is the planet’s leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective.

The deposit is $500, and the final sales price is $2,500 before shipping. The text has been updated to correct the error.The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is expected to adopt a new rule in the coming weeks with the potential to undermine the DIY gun industry: It will require that the metal parts that hobbyists used to manufacture their so-called ghost guns be registered as legal firearms.Cody Wilson, the founder of the Austin-based Defense Distributed and a prominent figure in the DIY gun movement, has been planning a countermove that he says will allow his customers to circumvent the new rule: The company has modified its* home milling machine so that users no longer need to load it with the partially fabricated metal parts subject to the new rule.Instead, they’ll be able start from scratch with a solid block of aluminum.The newest version of the Ghost Gunner, a milling machine that’s roughly the size of home printers, will now be able to “take raw materials…in their primordial state…and turn them into guns,” Wilson tells Reason. Blocks of aluminum will not be subject to the new regulation.It’s not the first time the federal government has tried to undermine Wilson’s business. In 2013, the State Department ordered him to take down plans posted to his website for his first 3D-printed gun, the Liberator. Wilson sued on First Amendment grounds, which led to a 2018 settlement with federal government, a media firestorm, and a 9th Circuit Court injunction against states trying to ban sharing of the files in 2021.The new 100-page administrative rule issued by the ATF, which was published to the Federal Register in May 2021 for public review, will change the definition of a firearm to encompass “weapon parts kit[s]…designed to or [which] may readily be assembled, completed, converted, or restored.”If adopted, it will mean that the federal government will require gun part kits sold online to bear the same serial numbers as do fully manufactured firearms, which could put most companies in the space out of business because customers won’t want to deal with the bureaucratic hurdles of registering their parts.Wilson says that Defense Distributed is the only DIY gun company pivoting in the face of the upcoming rule, so its real impact will be to drive his competitors off the market. Biden is “giving us, the nation’s premier ghost gun company, a monopoly of the market,” Wilson says.*CORRECTION: The original version of this article stated that the Ghost Gunner sells for $500.

THIS is how a GUN REGISTRY BEGINS – BIDEN’S ATF CREATING A REGISTRY THROUGH FFLs [Video]

In this episode of Minute Man Moment, Phil gives the latest update on the ATF’s plans for a national gun registry. A few weeks ago, GOA uncovered ATF internal documents showing an outrageous increase in firearm transaction records being collected from out-of-business FFLs. After we shared these documents with the Washington Free Beacon, dozens of other news outlets started spreading the word. GOA Spokeswoman, Antonia Okafor, also joined Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News to discuss the ATF’s plans and what it means for eventual gun confiscation.Later in the episode, special guest and 2A warrior U.S. Representative Michael Cloud gives an update from Congress on what they’re doing to fight these new gun control measures. Representative Cloud led over 50 pro-gun Members of Congress in sending a letter to the ATF demanding answers on this proposed rule. We are proud to work with elected officials like Representative Cloud to protect our Second Amendment at all levels of government – make sure you thank him in the comments!Join GOA: https://donate.gunowners.org/youtube/Like on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GunOwners/Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gunownersofamerica/Follow on Twitter: https://twitter.com/GunOwners

ATF UPDATE: Congressman Michael Cloud Attempts To HAULT BIDEN’S GUN REGISTRY [Video]

In this week’s episode of Minute Man Moment, Phil gives an update on what we’re doing with our partners in Congress to fight ATF’s plans for a national gun registry. To help us in our fight, Congressman Michael Cloud of Texas led 51 Members of Congress in sending a letter to the ATF demanding answers. If we don’t all join together to fight these radical policies, this Administration will have our country on the path towards gun confiscation in no time.Later, Phil talks about a dangerous Biden nominee for Comptroller of the Currency, Saule Omarova. While Comptroller of the Currency is usually a boring job regulating banks, Joe Biden has nominated a radical anti-gunner who could use the full weight of the Treasury Department to wage war against the firearm industry and our Second Amendment. Watch the full video for more on Saule Omarova and GOA’s efforts to protect the gun industry.Join GOA: https://donate.gunowners.org/youtube/Like on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GunOwners/Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gunownersofamerica/Follow on Twitter: https://twitter.com/GunOwners

BIDEN’S ATF Processes 54+ MILLION Records – MAJOR STEP TOWARDS CONFISCATION [Video]

GOA obtained ATF’s internal documents outlining the 53.8 million paper records and 887,000 electronic records they have retained this fiscal year alone. While they stockpile Form 4473 records of firearms and gun owners, ATF and the Biden administration have also been working on proposed changes to existing laws that would keep gun records stored in perpetuity in West Virginia.The increase in Form 4473 record-keeping is only one aspect of ATF’s gun-grabbing agenda. ATF’s leaked internal documents also indicate that they have reached the final stage of their rulemaking process on their proposed ban of 10 to 40 million pistol braces.ATF’s proposed rules will go further to restrict law-abiding gun owners from accessing homemade firearms by requiring gun parts to be regulated with background checks. In practice, this would mean that a law-abiding citizen could be subject to a dozen or more background checks for one firearm.Contact your congressman: https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representativeContact your Senator: https://www.senate.gov/senators/senators-contact.htmBiden Admin Amassing Millions of Records on US Gun Owners Amid New Crackdown on Firearms: https://www.google.com/amp/s/freebeacon.com/biden-administration/biden-admin-amassing-millions-of-records-on-u-s-gun-owners-amid-new-crackdown-on-firearms/amp/————-Join GOA: https://donate.gunowners.org/youtube/Like on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GunOwners/Follow on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gunownersofamerica/Follow on Twitter: https://twitter.com/GunOwners
