ATF

VICE news takes a look:

Since it appears to be all firing pin indent related, it seems like one of those things which criminals could easily circumvent, if they weren’t so stupid / lazy.  I wonder if there’s any sort of unique signature made by when the casing expands in the firing chamber which they also can (or do) catalog?  I’m glad to hear the system is working for law enforcement.  It’s too bad the system costs around $250k (4:28).  For a big city I’m sure that’s nothing, but for smaller police departments that’s likely an insane amount of money to spend… not to mention the training needed.  There needs to be some sort of centralized office which just deals with entering casings into NIBIN.  Getting the casing evidence to that office by some sort of a secure courier a couple times per month maybe?  I’m sure people smarter than me have thought about all these things.

2:41 – haha imagine if that car backfired.  Miss Vest would have filled her pants.

I wonder if a lawyer has ever argued that just because the shell casings that were linked to his client’s gun were found at the scene, it doesn’t mean he committed the shooting.  The old “my client goes to the range lots and doesn’t police his brass” defense.  “HIS RIVALS SPRINKLED HIS CASINGS on THEIR CRIME SCENE your honor.  My client didn’t do NOTHING”. Haha probably has happened.

hahah ok then.  Man flamethrowers are so awesome.  I’d be a bit nervous having a tank of fuel on my back though.

Future NFA item? DON’T TREAD ON TWINKIES:

You just know some neckbeard from Reddit is currently preparing his letter to the ATF to ask for their judgement on this.  Then there will be a letter issued by the ATF… and that letter will be ambiguous.  Just in case though people will start baking their own twinkies, but they won’t call them twinkies and they will be a different color so it will be ok (grey area) to use them as suppressors for the time being.

Yea you laugh at the Twinkie NFA item thing… but the ATF determined a 14″ shoestring was a machine gun so I really wouldn’t put it it past them.

ATF-Mythbusters

Then an absolute comment massacre took place on their facebook post about it.  Some guys have NO CHILL whatsoever and give zero shits ahhahha good entertainment.

Thoughts?  Did you add your own comment on the post?  I’m staying out of this one.

Leeland-Yee-De-Leon-Ghost-Gun-PalsManufacturing and selling in mass quantities?  345 guns seized in one case!  Legit serial numbered lowers are under $100, so obviously the criminal element were the customers.  If they are doing something illegal with it, it’s not like they care that it has a serial number or not on it anyway… this just made it easier to get because they wouldn’t have to get a stolen one etc…  I just don’t understand how the guy(s) at the Sacramento machine shop they busted could have thought this was a good idea in any capacity.  Probably just are so dumb, they thought they were too smart to get caught is my guess.
