The Atlantic reports on the two accounts of Gabriel Silverstein and Larry Gaines:
The whole episode lasted about 2 hours. While the officers who questioned me were not overtly or personally threatening, the situation was intimidating and threatening. I was never told details of the “profile”, so I don’t know how to prevent this from happening again, aside from talking to federal employees at all times while flying. I am concerned that DEA and DHS now have files on me. This distresses me GREATLY. I am equally concerned that my plane’s tail number is now suspicious in the eyes of law enforcement.
Every day thousands of illegal immigrants flood over the border and Muslim terrorists plot bombings in Boston, but the DHS and Border Patrol have to harass civilian pilots. It is amazing how far the government will go, to not actually do their job.
Mother Jones is trying to scare people by publishing an article on the legal practice of building an un-serialized rifle for personal use.
And because we’re assembling the guns for our own “personal use,” whatever that may entail, we’re not required to stamp in serial numbers. These rifles are totally untraceable, and even under California’s stringent assault weapons ban, that’s perfectly within the law.
Wazoo Survival Gear has a clever new buckle that incorporates survival tools into the design.
“The ADA requires state and local governments to make accommodations for disabled people, particularly in regard to major life activities,” he says. “And many disabled people have less ability when they’re attacked in their home to retreat to a point of safety or get behind cover from which they can change a magazine. They may have less mobility, or some might have only one arm, for example.
“So it’s more difficult for them to change magazines than do other people — and therefore, even if the magazine ban were constitutional in general, which we argue it is not, the people with relevant disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations to larger magazines.”
From Fox News:
A May 21 bulletin distributed to numerous state and federal law enforcement agencies and obtained by FoxNews.com states that the guns, which can be made by downloading blueprints into cutting edge computers that mold three-dimensional items from melted plastic, “poses public safety risks” and are likely beyond the current reach of regulators. The guns threaten to render 3D gun control efforts useless if their manufacture becomes more widespread.
Power to the people.
Here is Reason.com’s take on the situation.
Newsday.com reports on the protest:
The protesters were encouraged to register to vote, join a political party and get active in political committees. Organizers said the goal is to repeal the law or else in 2014 make its supporters face consequences at the polls. At one table, they handed out voter registration forms and encouraged demonstrators to take them home to family and friends who feel the same way.
“You can have a heads up display inside the goggle which can be maps, images or GPS coordinates. You can configure it for text messages. This is a multi-faceted device. It allows us to take night vision technology and connect it to a tactical network…”
Colt Competition just moved to Texas and they are now producing rifle specifically for 3 gun competitions.
The Colt Competition Pro is the brainchild of Dave Wilcox, who is heading up the company that is making these rifles for Colt. It’s built solely for the civilian market and is tricked out for the fast-paced and demanding sport of 3-Gun.
There are a few options for those who want to be sure they have proper representation in the unlikely event they have to use their weapon in self defense.

It seems that this has the potential to be more dangerous than single shot plastic guns. With this system it looks like someone with no shooting experience could pick up this rifle and be extremely deadly. That said, in a free society plastic guns and point-and-shoot rifles should not be a concern to anyone. The pros outweigh the cons.
