Home made guns

Looks like some guys in Cali were making ARs and selling them.

    Many are known as “ghost guns” because they lack serial numbers and can be sold without background checks or transfer documents.

    That right there really bugged me. I guess it’s technically true that they can be sold without background checks or transfer documents, but that is no different than non “ghost guns”. In either case this is illegal in CA.

    They were making sbrs with suppressors.

    Off topic, but my suppressed 10 inch SBR 5.56 is not perceptibly quieter than my non-suppressed 16 inch AR…yet, is heavier and longer (when you add the suppressor length to the short barrel).

    Also, it has less muzzle energy.

    There is no advantage to a suppressed SBR over a regular carbine, in 5.56 at least.

    The crime here sounds more like fraud.

    Yeah, this bugged me too. It’s like saying crack can be sold on street corners without a perscription.

    Well, if what you doing is illegal in the first place, why not go whole-hog? That’s kind of the unintended consequence of making standard AR ownership illegal: If you’re going to get in trouble for it anyway, might as well make it really good. No reason to act with restraint if you’re going to go to prison no matter what.
