In-Home DIY Handgun Kits Straddle Gun Laws And Serial Numbers
Categories: Survival, Gadgets, DIY, Education, constitutionality
Today on the internet you can find videos on how-to do just about everything, and you can order parts and kits to make things and do things yourself. I recently discovered on my Chevrolet Traverse that the local tire shop wanted $380.00 to change out my headlight bulbs, so I found a Youtube on how to do it yourself in 10 minutes. Just like that, it took me 10 minutes, and I feel like an experienced professional, my wife thinks I''m a hero, and I''ve got money in my billfold to boot!
With the same simplicity you can buy a product called a Ghost Glock, which is in essence an 80% completed handgun lower, and follow online video instructions on how to complete the lower yourself. The U.S. department of justice has upheld the statute that 80% complete is not a gun, and does not require a serial number or any form of registration for the kit, or to sell it across state lines - mail order fashion. The kit allows the individual to complete the manufacturing process at home, and that is not illegal in the United States.
Uppers are available from many sources online or at gun shows and shops without registration or complications. It is a completed lower that requires registration in some states.
Ghost Glock represents that it does not retain sales records of partials and upholds that the United States Constitution was written to keep citizens empowered, protected, and that collecting purchasing data on trusted citizens is unconstitutional.
