The Massachusetts AG is making up her own gun control laws…again . . .
Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey and other top state law enforcement officials emphasized Thursday that 3D-printing of guns is illegal and poses a serious public safety risk.
The officials issued a public safety notice to remind residents that “the creation, transfer, or possession of a weapon made with a 3D printer can subject an individual to serious criminal or civil liability under Massachusetts law.”
The notice comes after Healey and other state attorneys general won a temporary injunction from a federal judge in Seattle last week blocking the Trump administration from allowing the plans for the 3D-printed weapons to be posted online starting Aug. 1.
Strange that all of this is coming out now that the useless restraining order against Defense Distributed is in place . . .
But TSA officials say 3-D-printed guns and firearm components have been in circulation for years and have been found on passengers trying to board commercial flights.
Since August 2016, the TSA has detected two 3-D-printed guns and two 3-D-printed firearm components, all of which were voluntarily abandoned by the passengers who were packing them in their carry-on bags, TSA spokesman Michael Bilello said.
The most recent component was discovered in January at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.
“TSA officers are trained and on the lookout for 3-D guns,” he said. “We have proven detection capabilities and screening protocols in place.”
“Gun safety.” Yeah, that’s what they’re working for . . .
More than a thousand volunteer leaders from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America gathered Friday at an Atlanta hotel for a two-day conference called Gun Sense University. The kickoff event included big-name supporters, like actress Julianne Moore and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, as well as survivors of gun violence.
A common refrain Friday was a push to run for office. A “Running for Office 101” training session on Friday drew nearly four dozen people.
AK-47 Assault Rifle Manufacturer Kalashnikov Has Made a Bike for Vladimir Putin’s Presidential Escort
Huh. No rifle scabbard . . .
The motorcycle, which is called Kortezh, gets a part retro, part modern look. The all-black body panels have a sleek and clean look to them. It’s the kind of bike one would imagine with Putin’s tough guy appeal. Interestingly, the bike will be branded by Izh, which is owned by Kalashnikov. Yes, the makers of the infamous AK-47 assault rifle.
It should have been a defensive gun use . . .
