Obama Signs Executive Order That Instantly Criminalizes Millions Of Amateur Gunsmiths.

This is just laughable on it's face. I got news for you Jack, I absolutely will not comply with this bullshit.

Arrogant fucking asshole thinks that he can just whip out his pen and automatically write new regulations that would not only make anyone who merely threads a bolt hole on a gun register with a government agency but make them fork over 2,500 dollars a year for the privilege of having to do so.

You can kiss my ass if you think I'm doing that for one fucking second.

Obama regime targets gunsmiths with new executive order

President Barack Obama just quietly released a new executive order that could subject casual gunsmiths to thousands of dollars in fees and other regulatory burdens if they so much as thread a barrel on a firearm.

The executive order gives new authority to the State Department’s Directorate of Defense trade Controls, which oversees International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and the underlying Arms Export Control Act (AECA).

From the State Department: “Any person who engages in the United States in the business of manufacturing or exporting or temporarily importing defense articles, or furnishing defense services, is required to register with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls … For the purpose of this subchapter, engaging in such a business requires only one occasion of manufacturing or exporting or temporarily importing a defense article or furnishing a defense service. A manufacturer who does not engage in exporting must nevertheless register.”

According to the presidential directive, firearm modifications that do not require “drilling, cutting, or machining” are not affected by the new rules.

But a commercial gunsmith who makes just one modification on the list of activities the government believes improves “the accuracy, caliber, or operation” of a firearm is subject to the new rules.

Examples of included gunsmithing activities include:

Use of any special tooling or equipment upgrading in order to improve the capability of assembled or repaired firearms;
Modifications to a firearm that change round capacity;
The production of firearm parts (including, but not limited to, barrels, stocks, cylinders, breech mechanisms, triggers, silencers, or suppressors);
The systemized production of ammunition, including the automated loading or reloading of ammunition;
The machining or cutting of firearms, e.g., threading of muzzles or muzzle brake installation requiring machining, that results in an enhanced capability;
Rechambering firearms through machining, cutting, or drilling;
Chambering, cutting, or threading barrel blanks; and
Blueprinting firearms by machining the barrel.
Any of those activities would require registration with the government and an annual $2,250 fee.

Let' me make this perfectly clear to you ignorant gun grabbing motherfuckers.

I Will Not Comply With This In Any Way, Shape Or Form.


Do you get that?

I mean, do you really get it? Because I'm getting the impression that you aren't listening anymore. You are just sticking your fingers in your ears, yelling LA LA LA LA and doing whatever you damn well please like 5 year olds.

Another thing I can absolutely guarantee you that I will not be alone in this.
As a matter of fact, I would bet money that there are a couple million other Americans who are going to say EXACTLY the same thing, TOMORROW.

I own my guns you sonsabitches. I own my tools also.


I am really, really having a hard time wrapping my head around what it is about these words that you can't seem to grasp even though they were written down over two hundred years ago and the meaning hasn't changed in that time;

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Since someone has obviously been handing Mr. Obama some seriously bad advice here, let me perhaps clue you and him in.

Technology and innovation are not static things.
There is always someone out there trying to make a better mouse trap as it were and firearm technology is no exception.

Since the Supreme Court ruled in Caetano v. Massachusetts (2016), that "the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding" and that its protection is not limited to "only those weapons useful in warfare".[15] , it would seem to be crystal clear to someone with even average intelligence that maintenance and repair of said firearms is an integral activity relating to the ownership and functionability of said firearms also.

That would indicate to me that gunsmithing is an integral part of gun ownership and should also be part and parcel of what is a Constitutionally protected activity.

Apparently Mr. Obama is under the impression that you can have your guns but can't repair them without government permission, because National Security. The same lame assed strategy they have tried to pull bullshit with before.

All this amounts to is a backhanded, impotent swipe at gun control.

If all of a sudden here in the near future we start hearing about ATF raids on gunsmiths who aren't complying with this over reach either then I have one name I want you all to remember and especially the story behind why that name is so significant.

i thought executive order was for emergencies like war.
if g. bush the younger hadn't started it the dems would not have been able to weasel in with this unconstitutional, illegal overreach.
or would they?
every time the word 'Constitution' is spoken they all smirk silently in public, but roar with laughter in private.
when kruschev said 'we will bury you,' none of us believed it, but he was speaking truth. the change agents had long been in place before he made his seemingly laughable statement. none of us believed it.
for example, how did all the colleges become overpopulated with blatantly communist professors?
must have been part of the plan.
and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
not so long ago these openly seditious profs would have been charged with treason.
i think it started with jane fonda in viet nam. i thought surely fed agents would meet her plane and cart her off to prison but they didn't.
i was young then or i might have smelt the rat when she went free with no repercussions.
now the white house, which needs to be exorcized, is crawling with these roaches. call the orkin man!

I love that every time u wax on about the 2nd amendment u brush over the well regulated part as though it has no meaning. At least make the argument that it is your right to be an innovator, patent it and call it good. Just because u can make a bomb with common ingredients in your house doesn't mean it's legal.

Special tooling = AR armorers wrench?

I love it when anonymous commenters come here and try to use that argument while ignoring the fact that the Supreme Court has ruled that gun ownership extends to private citizens irregardless of that part of it.

SiGraybeard said...

Right. The modern translation of "well regulated" is "trained". And the courts have ruled "militia" is all adults who are interested in being militia. Really pretty simple.

And takes about a microsecond to verify with Google or another search engine.

Next thing you know, you're going to get the "the 2A only applies to muskets!!" crap.

SiGraybeard said...

The way I read this is that as soon as they say, “Any person who engages in the United States in the business of ... ” stop reading. I'm not a business. I'm a guy with tools (some of which are guns). I'm not in business, I'm not selling anything to anyone anywhere, and this applies to businesses. Case closed. If I want to rechamber my rifle, they have nothing to say to me.

So that's the litmus test (I want to be in a militia) and as far as training goes I'm sure all gun purchases come with the caviat of being trained. I agree that fire arms are tools and that being said tools that have the ability to kill if miss handled should be purchased with responsibility insured. Just as I would not put a quickly saw in someone's hands without proper training.

tweell said...

Oh, the totalitarian emerges. You need to have proper training before owning a firearm! Amazingly enough, only the 'correct' people will have the proper training to own a gun.

By the way, most police are terrible at shooting. The common CC permit holder has a better safety and accuracy record. Yet the police are sprinkled with the fairy dust of governmental training and approval (you do approve, don't you, citizen?).

Finally, if you really want to allow purchase of firearms when properly trained, as a veteran I should be able to purchase machine guns, grenades and howitzers. I was trained to use them by the US Army, after all!

There is no "litmus test". In our Republic, citizens to not test to exercise a right.
And it might be of benefit to learn how to diagram a sentence so as to gain a lucid understanding of the intent of the writer.

I had never seen that before.
