Kansas homemade silencer case

https://m.lasvegassun.com/news/2016/...ash-with-fede/

Should be an interesting case, especially since the SC will look a little different by the time it makes it to that level and some of the players involved.

Yes, very interesting.

The article doesn't indicate that there was prosecution for manufacturing a firearm without a license, another violation of federal law. (I understand that anyone can make a firearm for his own use, but not transfer it.)

This case seems similar to states' legalization of marijuana. Since the federal government abdicated its responsibility to enforce federal drug law within any one state's borders, does that mean that they given up ALL legal authority to control intra-state affairs?

This won't be settled anywhere but at the SC. Hopefully enough delay can be built into the appeal and the NEW SCOTUS will hear this case.

How does a homemade silencer impact interstate commerce?

Oh yea, by building it, he affected interstate commerce by not engaging in interstate commerce.

That decision must be overturned.

This is a continuation of the Firearms Freedom Act in Montana. We were shot down primarily over technicalities at District and Circuit (CA9) levels and denied Cert at SCOTUS.

The good news is that the situation here is different apparently, and the CA9 decision is not binding.

It is perfectly legal to build your own firearms without a manufacturing license. It is perfectly legal to sell those firearms without a manufacturing license or other FFL. What is not legal is to be in the business of selling firearms without a FFL. The difference is like porn laws "I know it when I see it". It is a very vague area that is not properly defined.

Yeah. Build one and sell it, no problem. Build one a week and sell them, no go. Somewhere in between is the dividing line. And it maybe different depending on the particular BATFE agent.

There was a guy at the Denver gun show selling complete "solvent traps" with guides for drill bits in the package, and QD brakes.....no thanks. I'm not risking that. I'm going by the book.
