NRA Board Member Tom King speaks out against home built firearms/80% lowers

NRA Board Member and head of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Tom King, speaking out against our ability to legally make firearms for our personal collections and use.

“These '80 percent' guns are providing a way for prohibited people to buy a firearm,” Tom King of the NYSRPA said

The head of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association said the sale of ghost guns is a growing problem.

“These '80 percent' guns are providing a way for prohibited people to buy a firearm,” Tom King of the NYSRPA said, referring to people who don’t have a gun permit or are otherwise prohibited from possessing a gun.

He said self-assembled guns provide a way for competition shooters to make a custom-fitted firearm. Such weapons should have serial numbers and be registered — and any new legislation should consider such a provision, he said. But it appears increasingly, King said, people trying to evade the law are the ones buying and selling self-assembled weapons.

“It appears what was meant to be something for competitive shooters and serious shooters to build their own unique firearm may be turning into a criminal enterprise,” King said.

Time for a new board as well as a replacement for Wayne LaPierre.

NRA is picking a really bad time to self-destruct. Unless the Coup has infiltrated that organisation too.

Illegal is illegal.

I don't see the difference if you are a PROHIBITED person it shouldn't matter HOW you've obtained and/or possess a firearm. Also shouldn't matter what firearm it is you are in possession or illegal ownership of.

This is akin to fighting opioid addiction by making heroin "super-doooper-double eagle" illegal instead of just the plain old illegal it already is.

Point is, as always, this will ONLY really effect lawful owners/users.

Exactly, and I'd venture to guess it's easier and cheaper to buy one off the street than for a criminal to build one themselves.
