View Full Version : San Diego's ABC 10 on 'legal' and 'untraceable guns'

11-18-2012, 9:08 PM
Team 10 purchased a piece of aluminum and watched as it was turned into a receiver for an AR-15. It can take four or five hours to do this, depending on how busy the shop is. Inside that machine shop is a computer-controlled milling machine that cuts out the aluminum.

What Team 10 ended up with was a receiver that can have parts added to it, such as the trigger, the barrel, the stock and the clip [sic]. Team 10 fired the AR-15 at a nearby range when the receiver was finished and it worked just fine.

I wonder whether building receivers for exposť TV stories counts as "for personal use?"

The obvious fact that a machine shop can make a gun should only come as surprise to the stupidest viewer. Humans have been contriving nearly limitless types of weapons for hundreds of thousands of years, and will continue to do so as long as there is a perceived need to defend one's life and loved ones.

In most circumstances, bows, swords, spears, etc. are no less lethal than firearms and are as ancient as the human race itself. That fact is why banning manufacture of any common weapon (guns also being ancient technology) is like banning sticks and rocks.

Regulating such activity out of existence might even seem possible as long as there are plenty of other sources for defensive weapons, but if every legal source of life saving tools were to dry up, there will absolutely, always be alternate supply lines to take their place.

But, but, sticks are banned in California! (Police Batons.)

The lead in the article was worthy of an eyeroll but the teaser for the broadcast sounds like they've uncovered some underground, black-market, gun-show-loophole-esque operation.
