The 80 Percent Lower, the Ghost Gun, and the ATF :: 08/03/2021

The trouble with technology is that it grows faster than it can be regulated. At least this is something that might be considered when the time-labored process of legislation is met with the growth rate of homemade guns. As 3D printed gun files, incomplete components, and the internet have jumped centuries in providing a way for private citizens to produce their own firearm in their own home, we're no longer looking at simply hand-crafting a flintlock pistol, but actually completing a functioning semi-automatic firearm all within the four walls of a condo. On the one hand, the old terms of the relationship between the agency colloqially referred to as the ATF are no longer relevant, and on the other hand, new terms such as “Ghost Gun,” and concepts like an 80 percent lower now populate a the news, feeds, and Search Engine results of people around the world. 


Pro-Gun...But Not Pro-2A? :: 08/03/2021

It seems that misunderstandings, deliberations and debates about the meaning — and the scope— of the Second Amendment often focus on whether it protects the keeping and bearing of arms for: (a) the maintenance of a militia, (b) the prevention of tyranny (foreign or domestic) or (c) the prolongation of self-defense … or, of course, a conglomeration of those three things. And these differing ideas may help explain why some folks claim to support firearms when they don’t really support the Second Amendment. In fact, there are many people who blatantly disagree with some (or all) of those 27 words, arguing that guns should be designated only for certain activities or for certain people.
