When President Biden last spring announced measures intended to curb gun violence, he directed the Justice Department to formulate a new rule under which the ATF would classify gun kits as firearms. The period of public comment on the rule ended on Aug. 19. The approximately 250,000 comments collected included many from gun extremists opposing the proposed rule change — when I checked the site this week, the first comment called the rule “disgraceful” and “a huge overstep into the rights of American Citizens.”

But responsible gun owners understand that their rights come with responsibilities. The right to build a deadly weapon absent a background check, or other basic requirements, should not be valued more highly than my daughter’s right, or anyone’s right, to life.

Three months have passed since the ATF’s comment period ended. The rule classifying ghost gun kits as firearms still has not been finalized. And the surge in U.S. gun violence continues. When will the Biden administration act?

  1. if i may further summarize the article…
    “Waaaaa. Waa waa waaa.”

    Also, I’m always surprised by the amount of wrong and slanted info they can cram into such short articles.

  2. “The rule classifying ghost gun kits as firearms still has not been finalized. And the surge in U.S. gun violence continues.”

    As if those two things are related. The walking dead useful idiot mob will gobble this up.

    We know how to curb violence. It isn’t complicated. They’re intentionally doing the opposite.

      • More violence gives them an excuse to curb my ability to defend myself. Since that is the goal, they have no incentive to curb violence. Hmm

  3. “The approximately 250,000 comments collected included many from gun extremists opposing the proposed rule…”
    I’m sure the bed-wetting, gun banning crowd and their pawns consider any and everyone opposed to owning firearms that the central government doesn’t have some sort of record on as a “gun extremist”.

    The logical (if you’re a politician or govt regulator) course on “ghost guns” will be to re-classify ANY firearm owned without a direct 4473 connection to the present owner as such. And done through ATF regulation would give Congress cover since it would be a regulation rather than law change.

    Coming to a nation near you unless we gun extremists stop complaining primarily amongst ourselves and start making some inroads and alliances with the 10 million or so “new” gun owners since the BLM riots. There are likely that many more who are still contemplating buying a firearm if/when prices come down or guns become available.

    Take your disinterested friends, relatives, neighbors and colleagues shooting. Try to get your high school and college kids into the Scholastic Clays programs but above all- get some sort of firearm into the hands of people who have never used one before. Show them that it’s fun first, and not some dangerous or difficult activity- certainly no more so than normal driving.

    Start there- plant the seeds. We can “reap one hundred fold” if we sew them generously.

    • Yea, once is realized that the 4473 was a back door gun registration I sold ever gun in personal sales that I had bought from a dealer and filled out a form from.

      • Like some agency doesn’t already know you’re a POTG by your internet, phone, banking and other personal habits? Think the NSA doesn’t already have a nice fat file on you out there in Utah? Most of those are already digital and readily accessable, not like having to scan in zillions of 4473s in file cabinet drawers or cardboard boxes from 45 years ago.

        Probably the early tactic would be to hang around ranges, etc and just take a look at your gun and run it back “while you wait”. Probable cause would likely be built into the new regs.

        Privacy? In 2021America?

        Delusional, man. Sorry.

      • Why not just lose them in a “boating accident” then if you are ever questioned about them you can just SAY you sold them…

      • Selling doesn’t really help. They’d have no notification to take you off the list, unless you did the sale through a dealer that generated another paper trail. They think you still have it, and, if the time ever comes, they’d send a dog killing assault squad to invade your house in the middle of the night to look for them.
        It’s better to say, “Yes sir, take all my evil guns,” take the pittance of a “buyback,” give them everything with a paper trail, and say nothing about those you made or didn’t buy from a dealer.

        • That’s right, get on your knees and BEG for forgiveness from your masters… Spoken like a true Snowflake… Maybe they’ll even lube you up before they screw you but don’t expect a reach around… Good luck with that…

  4. The right to build a deadly weapon absent a background check, or other basic requirements, should not be valued more highly than my daughter’s right, or anyone’s right, to life

    He/she/it is right, NOTHING should be valued more highly than a daughter’s (or son’s) right to life… However, to correlate those two things is absolutely asinine… The ignorance and lack of shame in this crowd is mind numbing… Was the loss of the daughter caused by someone with a “kit gun” OR a gun with all identifying marks and numbers removed, both are classified as “ghost guns” and no distinction is made in police reports…

    • I’m not sure I’m guaranteed the right to build a “deadly weapon” that’s specified anywhere but how can anyone stop me if I have the means, materials and inclination?

      We’re talking 85 octane gasohol and a 2 liter Woke Coke bottle here at the foundational level…

      The issue is one’s right to keep and bear arms. Nothing specified about where or how one gets such arms. In the original US, if it wasn’t forbidden, it was permitted. (Not talking gun permits…)

    • You and most other people think you have a “right to life”. In reality, you don’t. You DO have a right (if you care to exercise it) to TRY to stay alive and prosperous for as long as you can, keeping in mind that there are many ways to die.

      Excerpt “In Memoriam”, Tennyson

      “LV
      The wish, that of the living whole
      No life may fail beyond the grave,
      Derives it not from what we have
      The likest God within the soul?

      Are God and Nature then at strife,
      That Nature lends such evil dreams?
      So careful of the type she seems,
      So careless of the single life;

      That I, considering everywhere
      Her secret meaning in her deeds,
      And finding that of fifty seeds
      She often brings but one to bear,

      I falter where I firmly trod,
      And falling with my weight of cares
      Upon the great world’s altar-stairs
      That slope thro’ darkness up to God,

      I stretch lame hands of faith, and grope,
      And gather dust and chaff, and call
      To what I feel is Lord of all,
      And faintly trust the larger hope.

      LVI
      ‘So careful of the type?’ but no.
      From scarped cliff and quarried stone
      She cries, `A thousand types are gone:
      I care for nothing, all shall go.

      ‘Thou makest thine appeal to me:
      I bring to life, I bring to death:
      The spirit does but mean the breath:
      I know no more.’ And he, shall he,

      Man, her last work, who seem’d so fair,
      Such splendid purpose in his eyes,
      Who roll’d the psalm to wintry skies,
      Who built him fanes of fruitless prayer,

      Who trusted God was love indeed
      And love Creation’s final law—
      Tho’ Nature, red in tooth and claw
      With ravine, shriek’d against his creed— “

      • No one has the RIGHT to take my life therefore I have a right to live… You base all that on few words of rhyme written by a poet that was about a love lost “tis far better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all”… I do not consider Tennyson (or you for that matter) qualified to determine whether or not I have a right to life…

  5. One of the crimes felons commit is to steal the guns they use. Current (or last time I looked) regulation required kit guns to have identification inscribed on them by the maker. If a criminal were to steal one it’s rational to assume the identification would be erased as well. Add the fact that if asked how many crimes are committed with kit guns, stolen or not, I doubt Muehlberger would have anything to say. Nothing gained in pursuit of the stated purpose so that must be the lie.

    • The rules call for the impossible. The marking has to be done to BATFE standards, but polymer frames don’t have a metal portion that can meet the engraving requirements.

  6. While I greave for his loss, it’s evident he lacks understanding concerning the difference between regulation and law. Emotional projection of incorrect ideas, and an unwillingness to believe the facts, drives most of the left’s rhetoric. He totally discounts the human factor and thrives on the idea of controlling an object. That is done because he knows he has no control of the situation. He cannot control people. He cannot hold them accountable so he needs to control something. For too many in our country it is easier to believe an emotional idea then a fact grounded reality.

    • felixed…bryan muehlberger was using his live daughter to sell his goods/stupidity. Apparently two rights can make a wrong…

      “should not be valued more highly than my daughter’s right, or anyone’s right, to life.”

  7. What a self serving jerk bryan muehlberger is using daughter as an imaginary victim all to prevent others from having the means to defend their daughters from criminals that bryan’s very own democRat Party ilk coddles.

    No matter how sneaky those like bryan muehlberger are in the end they have one huge flaw in their desire for Gun Control and that is…History Confirms Gun Control in any shape, matter or form is rooted in racism and genocide. So bryan muehlberger take your imaginary poo home and protect your daughter with a fly swatter and let others protect their daughters the way they see best.

    Jim Crow Gun Control joe and bryan muehlberger can chew on the following…

    1) The Second Amendment is one thing.

    2) The criminal misuse of firearms, bricks, bats, knives, vehicles, etc. is another thing.

    3) History Confirms Gun Control in any shape, matter or form is a racist and nazi based Thing.

  8. “The approximately 250,000 comments collected included many from gun extremists opposing the proposed rule…”

    That’s encouraging news.

    I think it was something like 80,000 comments when they ‘proposed’ to ban green-tip ammo.

    Another thing they have to worry about is pissing off a *lot* of people right before the mid-term elections. They are currently scared shitless they may lose the Senate, on top of the house.

    So, they have motivation to quietly drop the BATF proposal…

    • Barring anymore shenanigans like the 2020 presidential election, they already have lost the house and senate. After the elections in Viginia, the democrats are scared, but like Beto, are only doubling down on the bs. They don’t know how to not go full stupid anymore.

    • That’s a good point about 250,000 taking ‘til around the mid-terms. Hopefully they will loose the Senate for a long time anyway, but the threat formidable.

  9. A PARTIAL LIST OF LUNATICS AND CRIMINALS WHO BUILT GHOST GUNS AND USED THEM IN CRIME OR MASS MURDERS.

    Are ghost guns frequently used in violent crime?????????????????????????

    Yes, ghost guns are increasing being used in shootings across the country.

    In July 2020, an individual who was prohibited from possessing guns allegedly murdered two people in Pennsylvania using a homemade 9mm handgun.9

    In November 2019, a 16-year-old shot five of his classmates at Saugus High School in California—two of them fatally—using a homemade handgun, before fatally shooting himself.10

    In August 2019, a shooter used a homemade gun kit to build a .223-caliber firearm that he later used to fire 41 shots in 32 seconds in a bar in Dayton, Ohio, shooting 26 people and killing nine.11

    In 2017, in Northern California, a man prohibited from possessing firearms ordered kits to build AR-15-style rifles. On November 13, he initiated a series of shootings that began with fatally shooting his wife at home, followed by a rampage the next day during which he fired at multiple people in several different locations, including an elementary school, killing five people and injuring dozens more.12

    In 2013, a shooter opened fire in Santa Monica, California, shooting 100 rounds, killing five people, and injuring several others at a community college using a homemade AR-15 rifle. Reporting indicates the shooter had previously tried to purchase a firearm from a licensed gun dealer and failed a background check, potentially indicating why he opted to order parts to build a gun instead.13

    Law enforcement officials around the country are sounding the alarm about the dramatic increase in the recovery of ghost guns at crime scenes in their communities. ATF reported that approximately 10,000 ghost guns were recovered across the country in 2019.14 Ghost guns have also been illegally trafficked to Mexico.15 In addition:

    In 2019, Washington, D.C., police recovered 115 ghost guns, a 360 percent increase from 2018, when they recovered 25 ghost guns, and a 3,733 percent increase from 2017, when only three such firearms were recovered.16

    In 2019, ATF reported recovering 117 ghost guns in Maryland with almost 25 percent recovered from Baltimore alone. Ghost gun recoveries in the state then tripled in 2020.17
    According to law enforcement in Philadelphia, ghost gun recoveries in that city rose 152 percent from 2019 to 2020.18

    The special agent in charge of the ATF Los Angeles Field Division reported in January 2021 that 41 percent of the division’s cases involve ghost guns, and a May 2019 statewide analysis in California found that 30 percent of all guns recovered in connection with a crime in the state did not have serial numbers.19

    In addition, an investigation by The Trace found that ghost guns are increasingly becoming the weapon of choice for violent white supremacists and anti-government extremists.20

    In conclusion the ATF is a law unto itself and as in the past it rules at 8:00 AM and it is then a new “regulation” (disingenuous term for new law) is now the law of the land at 5:00 PM.

    No Judge Conservative or Liberal will declare the ATF ruling illegal or Unconstitutional because ghost guns are a danger to the people of the country and even the much ballyhooed Scalia decision with the usual double talk and smoke and mirrors declared “The Courts had the right to regulate firearms” (slick disingenuous term for ban or restrict firearms).

    In conclusion your right to own a weapon rests with the rulings of the courts, not the Constitution, and history has proven this reality like it or not.

    No sane person would want ghost guns legal and no other civilized nation tolerates them.

      annually, ~400,000 people die as a result of tobacco product use, secondhand smoke causes approximately 7,330 deaths from lung cancer and 33,950 deaths from heart disease each year.

      Secondhand smoke is responsible for between 150,000 and 300,000 lower respiratory tract infections in infants and children under 18 months of age, resulting in between 7,500 and 15,000 hospitalizations each year. It also causes 430 sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) deaths in the U.S. annually.

      More than 23 million, or about 35% of children in the U.S. have been exposed to secondhand smoke.

      According to the CDC > https://www.cdc.gov/transportationsafety/child_passenger_safety/cps-factsheet.html

      In 2019, 608 child passengers age 12 and younger died in motor vehicle crashes, and more than 91,000 were injured.

      In 2019, 23% of child passenger deaths among children age 14 years and younger in the United States­­­ involved alcohol-impaired driving (blood alcohol concentration ≥0.08 g/dL); 64% of the time, it was the child’s own driver who had been drinking. … Among children who died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, a higher proportion of those riding with impaired drivers were unrestrained (58%) compared with those riding with sober drivers (37%).

Car crashes are a leading cause of death for teens, and about a quarter of those crashes involve an underage drinking. 730 people are injured every 12 hours in the United States due to drunk drivers. And despite your stupid, these are not going down overall.

        quote – “Laws that put people in jail for drunk driving reduced drunk driving drastically over the years. And a new breath machine will be made mandatory in the next 5 years in all new cars stopping you from starting the car.” – quote

        False. What they did was change the reporting requirements for stats. It used to be that instances of DUI were reported according to state law, but not all states required them to be reported to national stats data bases so the states were never a true representation for nation wide because only 23 states reported.

        In 2012 it was changed. Now DUI is included in stats based upon state law AND if someone was killed AND if there was a conviction – meaning, the numbers seem to be decreasing but in reality they are not because less states require reporting now for ALL DUI and those that happened don’t always meet the stats requirement to be included even though they are DUI.

        Its like suicide, the stats are grossly wrong. ~60% of suicides included in stats are later discovered to have been accident or homicide but the stats are never changed to reflect this, plus 28 states no longer report suicides to national data bases. So nationally, the stats for suicide are sooooo wrong.

        quote – “And the next law we will pass is the Ghost Gun Ban.” – quote

        Nope. You can’t ban something that does not exist. According to federal law a firearm is a firearm, according to the constitution 2A and SCOTUS “arms” are “arms” not defined as anything else but ‘arms’ and firearms are “arms”, no matter if it was manufactured by an individual or a company with a license to do so. Calling it a “ghost gun” does not change anything. Of course you will not understand this concept – but calling it a “ghost gun” is basically saying its not a firearm or “arms” by trying to reclassify it as something else “firearm”. That’s why there is no “ghost gun” ban now, because they can’t get around the constitutionality of the law defining firearms or the 2A.

        • Booger Brain your rant on ghost guns makes no sense. Ghost guns are used by people who cannot buy a gun legally so they can commit mass murder. Even a 3rd grader could understand this simply concept. They also build them to use as throw down weapons so they cannot be traced to them when they murder someone. Now Booger Brain try and lie your way out of this one.

      • Booger Brain you really need to see a shrink. Your arguments are that since no law is perfect we should have no laws against drunk driving, none against second hand smoke and none against ghost guns. How asinine can you get. All are a serious health problems and the laws against drunk driving and second hand smoke have saved millions of lives while you argue about a few thousand. Ghost guns are no different, I gave you the stats and you have ignored the truth with a wave of the hand because it does not fit your political agenda which by the way is less sane than what I have heard from people incarcerated for mental illness.

    • What a moron. Copy/pasting a long article with footnotes, and then excluding the footnotes. Even dozens of examples are statistically insignificant against hundreds of millions of guns and hundreds of thousands of crimes. Growth rates are hugh because a negligible increase in a miniscule sample is still a big percentage.

    • “The next thing we will ban is ghost guns” Well I guess you can dream. It will never stop. Anyone can build a gun from parts bought at any hardware store. I’ve built 100s of guns from parts kits. Most were sold with a 4473 but the ones I have in my collection are not and never will be registered.
      I have the knowledge and so millions of others when it comes to building firearms. The genie is out of the bottle and not going back.
      And just exactly how is a serial number going to do to stop those who wish to harm others with a gun? Sure some criminals obtained a gun by assembling it. That however would not stop anyone who wants a gun from getting one. Stolen guns are a dime a dozen. Any criminal who wants one can find one on the streets in a matter of hours if not minutes.
      Want to stop senseless murders? Arm the honest citizens and teach them how to defend themselves. The amount of scumbags would be thinned out quickly.

  10. Violent criminals harm others when they aren’t in jail. When they get dumped back on the street with no bail or turned loose after serving less than half their time they will harm others again.

    • … Waukesha Assault SUV killer free on $1000 bail ,for attempting to run over girlfriend with same vehicle less than 1 week prior to killing 6 on Sunday. Vehicle may have been recently repaired with parts obtained through unregulated online parts seller. News at 5

      • 1,000.

        That’s the value of 6 lives, and over 30 injured…

  11. We always have the responsibility to not exercise out rights.
    Through that responsibility we’re ensure we retain our rights.
    Perfect liberal reasoning.

  12. To be honest, any increased use of home build kits of firearms used in criminal activity is the fault of the media and politicians. They have essentially publicized home kits almost as if they want the criminal class to be aware of the existence of them. Nothing is a coincidence to the left. These moves are manipulated and calculated by leftists. It would not surprise me if ANTIFA cells buy the kits, put them together and distribute the finished products to their criminal confederates. They have long term goals to achieve and are the true extremists.

  13. I’m in no way exceptional in my abilities as a machinist or gunsmith. With the basic shop I have and what I have learned about guns over the years, I could, given time, manufacture almost any gun on the market. Polymer frames may be out for a home made, from scratch gun, but, something like a 1911 or even an AR or AK type would be very do-able.
    Now, here’s the rub. Criminals, usually aren’t the most ambitious or productive types. And, it is much cheaper and doesn’t leave a paper trail to purchase a stolen gun on the street. Next question would be just how many of these claimed ghost guns are actually production guns with the serial numbers or other identifying markings ground off? Could it be the guns reported as ghost guns are nothing but stolen guns that have been altered?
    And lastly, would the author be as worried about the safety of his daughter or angry about the weapon used if it was something other than a firearm? In all honesty, it is not the weapon used, but the person using it that needs to be dealt with. No weapon is completely autonomous. It always comes back to the person using it and the intentions of that person.

  14. Read the article and then the comments section (only 500 comments and not all are anti gun) on the WaPo website. The comments are filled with people who don’t have the first clue about firearms OR the laws currently governing them, but there are quite a few sensible and educated ones there too. The liberals there are screeching and wailing, but that’s to be expected in the WaPo…it’s a liberal rag. Anyway, it’s an opinion piece and has no basis in reality anyway. Go read some of the comments, you’ll get a good laugh out of some of them.

  15. The whole argument is based on a falicy that serial numbers can be used to catch criminals. It almost never happens. If the serial.number hasn’t been destroyed, it leads back to the original owner before the gun was stolen or sold, not to the criminal who used it or passed it around the black market. They need possession, fingerprints, ballistic matching, or gunshot residue to match the gun to the criminal, and none of that is affected by serial number.

  16. Have to say I’m intrigued by the idea of building my own using the latest in 3D printing of polymers and metals. All with a minimum of commercially manufactured parts. Problem is, I do not have that sort of loose cash laying about and factory made hand cannons and boomsticks are still far cheaper and reliable.

    On the other hand I eagerly await Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Just looking at who’s in it, the thing is gonna be a hoot!!!

  17. ” When will the Biden administration act? ”

    That’s a question a lot of people are asking about a lot of things. The Biden administration is the biggest do-nothing I’ve ever seen, and what they do manage to do inevitably gets royally f–ked up. It’s a double-edged sword for sure, but on balance I’d say I prefer the lack of action more than not. The less Biden does, the safer we all are.

    • . The Biden administration is the biggest do-nothing I’ve ever seen,

      You have obviously NOT been paying attention: 40% increase in gas prices “thank you Brandon”, highest inflation since Jimmy Carter “thank you Brandon”, gifted over 80 billion dollars worth of tier one military gear to the Taliban while setting up allied Afghanis to be murdered in the streets and hung from those really cool Blackhawks “thank you Brandon, created a border crises never before seen in our history “Thank you Brandon”… If I enumerated ALL of the “let’s go Brandon” administrations accomplishments (?) I’d be here all night just suffice it to say “let’s go Brandon” has done more in 10 months to destroy this country AND he’s stll got over three years to go… WOOHOOO…

        • ” “let’s go Brandon” has done more in 10 months to destroy this country ”

          I agree things are totally f–ked up with SloJo at the helm, but I don’t thing it’s because of what he’s done nearly as much as from what he’s failed (or ignored) to do. And even the few things that he’s actually done, he totally screwed up. Either way, there is no winning with the guy.

  18. “Killing is a matter of will, not weapons.
    You cannot control the act itself
    by passing laws about the means employed.”
    The late Col Jeff Cooper, 1958
    Handgun expert and founder of Gunsite Academy
    A politician with a law never stops a bad guy with a gun.
    He only controls the good guys….which is his true agenda. Making good people helpless does not make bad people…..or politicians……harmless.

    Dead bodies in a WalMart, or school classroom, or church pew…..the bad guy with a gun…..or the gang member with a gun…. the mentally deficient guy with a gun……OR THE TERRIBLY DISTRAUGHT FAMILY MEMBER OF A GUN SHOOTING VICTIM..… or a gun violence survivor……or the Feelz-Gooder Social Do-Gooder….. or the the “hair-on-fire, we’re-all-gonna-die” contingent……or the skin color only voter…..or the “just need common sense” purveyors…..or the “we just need to come together” crowd…..are the politician’s easily manipulated Useful Idiot Tools to achieve his power and control agenda.
