On Stupidity

Back in April of this year, Biden decided to take aim at the so-called “Ghost Gun” industry. This is what he had to say:

So the ATF decided to take aim at the DIY gun kits like the GST-9. As a result of this, they declared that selling an 80 percent firearm frame complete with all of the parts needed to turn that frame into a firearm is constructive possession and violates Federal law.

As a result, kit makers can’t put everything needed to turn an 80 percent frame into a firearm into the same box. So now they put them into two boxes, meaning that the rails for a Glock frame can’t be included in the same box as the rest of the (unfinished) frame. So now the rails come with the jig, which you must order separately.

Due to recently changed ATF regulations, we cannot legally include the jig or frame rails with the GST-9 frame. The jig and GST-9 frame must be purchased on our website as two separate items. Each jig includes one set of GST-9 frame rails. You will need to purchase one jig for every GST-9 frame you plan to build. Frame rails are ONLY included with the jig, not with the 80% lower itself.

The jig with the rails can be in the same order as the frame and even ship at the same time, thus proving that efforts to control this industry are doomed to failure.

Which brings up an interesting point about our government now. It’s no longer a democracy (never really was, but ). It is a bureaucracy in practice. Laws are no longer written by the House or Senate. Instead the legislature has turned over that duty to various bureaucratic agencies such as the ATF, EPA, OSHA, etc.

We are in a situation in which non-elected (and quite partisan) govt employees can write “regulations” which are then enforced with the same weight as “laws” by armed men. Violent armed men in many cases (here’s looking at you, ATF). You can be killed for violation of a regulation that changed in the middle of the night by an unnamed bureaucrat, a regulation that was never discussed or debated by elected representatives, a regulation that can and will change several times in the course of a single year, without any warning. You can have armed agents enforcing the regulation who can’t actually explain it, other than to assume you’re in violation because of your politics.

Using OSHA to enforce the vax is just another example. Having ATF change the definition of an arm brace (first illegal, then legal, then illegal again). EPA requires that companies use best current proven technology, then changes what is considered current or proven, then fining companies to make examples.

We are no longer a country under rule of law.

When I filed my comments to the ATF, I argued that their definition of “readily converted” into a firearm was identical to saying, “convenient.” They want to make it inconvenient but will never tell you what level of convenience is acceptable.

It’s like the old definition of pornography, “I’ll know it when I see it.”

They can’t make you wait a day between steps of turning your unfinished receiver into a gun. They can’t make you crawl through Death Valley on your hands and knees. Those would be inconvenient. All they can do is make you order parts from different suppliers, not buy a kit.

There is always a way around and the mental midgets high on their own faculty lounge flatulence who inhabit the noxious imperial swamp are the Peter Principle writ large.
