How Will San Francisco Enforce Ban On Homemade Guns?

From San Francisco Chronicle:

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously voted to outlaw the sale and possession of “ghost gun” kits and parts in the city, marking a key moment in what is emerging as a statewide battle against the untraceable weapons.

The ordinance allows police and the city attorney’s office to go after manufacturers and providers who profit off the sale of ghost gun kits and parts. Officials would be able to build up trafficking cases against them. Each violation or sale of a part would be punishable by a $1,000 fine.

ATF Tries To Redefine “Firearm”

The proposed rule, the “Definition of Frame or Receiver and Identification of Firearms” was introduced in May and signed by Attorney General Merrick Garland. Public comments on the rule closed Thursday.

It would amend the Code of Federal Regulations, including the term “firearm” in order to regulate firearm kits, and amend the term “gunsmith” to clarify that gunsmiths must mark unlicensed guns — effectively making the individual the manufacturer. It would implement regulations on nearly all portions of a firearm.

Delaware Wants To Ban Speech Of Gun Owners

From En Bloc Press:

The 151st Delaware General Assembly passed House Bill 125 on Tuesday. HB125 seeks to ban 3D printed firearms and other “untraceable” guns. Alarmingly, HB125 also makes it illegal to share instructions in the form of computer aided design models over the internet. This prohibition effectively eliminates the free speech rights of gun enthusiasts seeking to share or view the computer code of such designs.

Bill Proposed To Ban DIY Guns

From Bearing Arms:

One of the evil, naughty, and nasty things that Biden-Harris have been after are the mysterious and haunting ghost guns. There happens to be a bill to outlaw these mythical devices. Last month Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) introduced H.R. 3088: Untraceable Firearms Act of 2021.

ATF Looking To Change Definition Of Gun

From Breitbart:

According to the Wall Street Journal, the ATF is framing the scenario as an expansion of what can be categorized as a “firearm,” a move that “could subject ghost guns to the same regulations as other firearms.”

The ATF’s April Langwell defended the agency’s look into new regulations for such guns, saying, “ATF routinely meets with our regulated industry participants to discuss matters of mutual concern. One of those meetings is scheduled for this week, and ATF looks forward to continuing this important dialogue.”

3D Printing And DRM

From Ammoland:

If companies get into 3D printing, you can be sure they will do everything in their power to shut down sites that violate their patents on their IP. It will destroy the 3D printing community. Corporations would usurp the small tight knit group of designs like CTRL Pew and Ivan The Troll.

Another drawback of DRM is that a lot of it is going to an “online-only” model. This model is standard with video games. The game reaches out to a remote server to validate the copy of the software. If a gamer wants to play a single-player game offline, they can’t. The game requires an internet connection to run.

With gun files, this means every time to print something a server knows, and it isn’t too much of a jump to assume the government knows as well. This situation would defeat the whole purpose of 3D printing gun files. Using 3D printers to print gun files is to defeat gun control and not feed into it.

DIY Gun Bans Are Dead On Arrival

From Reason:

The problem with imposing legal restrictions intended to stop a practice that is designed to evade legal restrictions is that you were outflanked before you even started. That’s the challenge for President Joe Biden and lawmakers around the country as they consider limits on “ghost guns”—homemade guns that are created, owned, and used off the government’s radar. Do-it-yourself manufacturing has always hobbled authorities’ ability to control things they don’t like, and the modern ghost gun movement specifically evolved to put personal armaments beyond the reach of the state.

From The Truth About Guns:

When Defense Distributed launched their faster, larger, more powerful Ghost Gunner 3 mill they noted it is powerful enough to cut steel. At that point it was only a matter of time before AK-47 receivers were coming off the GG3, and that time is now.

Update On Defense Distributed Case

From The Second Amendment Foundation:

“New Jersey passed a statute aimed specifically at us and Defense Distributed,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Attorney General Grewal is essentially trying a delaying tactic to tie this case up in legal red tape as long as possible, while in the process depriving us of our First Amendment rights to share firearms information under color of state law.
