Concerning the faux Oregon gunsmith who states the following:
"Regarding Mayor Adams' proposals for gun control, I must add my perspective. As a former Army officer, gunsmith, member of the NRA and a competitive marksman, I see no reason why citizens, other than law enforcement, should have free access to armor-piercing rounds, military or automatic weapons, extended clips or undocumented purchases at gun shows."
An anonymous commenter over on japete's blog sums up the anti's belief that the ends justify the means:
"It doesn't matter that the author lied about his background because he speaks the truth when it comes to gun violence."
The comment thread has some other good nuggets as well...
1. Japete has a friend who is a gun smith and doesn't have an FFL and doesn't need one.
2. Then she back peddles and says her friend is not a gunsmith, but a gun manufacturer of muzzle-loaders and doesn't have an FFL.
3. Then she says that her friend sells his guns and doesn't need an FFL.
4. Then she says the ATF requires anyone selling guns to have an FFL.
Except her friend because he does this privately at a local gun store who calls in the NICS.
This is most likely who she's referring to, who is making guns and selling them as a business.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm no expert on laws pertaining to buying and selling homemade guns, but japete still can't avoid directly contracting herself and then not even be able to see that she's contradicting herself.
