Another ATF Raid

The ATF has raided KT Ordnance, makers of 80% lower receivers. AR15.com poster broke the story. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (a frequent and loud critic of the ATF -[should SayUncle be worried? – Ed.] – [Damn skippy – SayUncle]) also has a snippet on the story. And, equally odd, is KT’s site once looked like this and now looks like this.

Now, it’s no secret the ATF is cracking down on do it yourselfers [I told you damn skippy – Ed] but is this the result of that or something else?

Via Jed.

Update: Rumors around the boards seem to be that this guy was one of those ‘I don’t pay taxes’ Libertarians. Also, the other rumors are that he would sell 80% lower receivers (which are not firearms) and offer a workshop on finishing them. As such, a buyer could get an 80% lower, participate in the workshop, and walk out with a complete lower receiver (which is a firearm). This would bypass the NICS, of course. Definitely questionable but I’m uncertain of the legality.

    So does this mean my plan to build my .308 Garand starting with a CMP stripped receiver is a no-go?

    I say wait until we hear what they actually raided him for. When you operate very close to the line, it doesnt take a lot to get you in trouble. When you add in his odd politics, I would almost bet money that someone in the fedgov took offense at his tinfoil hattery and generally unorthodox anti-government views and decided to raid him.

    I’ve heard of this guy before and although he is midly nutso, he seemed like a highly intelligent individual who would know better than to break the law.

    Good thing we elected a pro-RKBA president and a pro-RKBA congress. I’m sure the coming congressional hearings will keep stuff like this from ever happening again.

    Wait, didn’t we just have BATF abuse hearings?

    So this coming election, are they going to go with “We’re gun friendly and we really mean it this time” or are they going to go with “who else are you going to vote for? Democrats? Libertarians?”

    I went to the site, read the article, then the comments. All I can say is that if those that commented are representative of gunowners we are in trouble. Big trouble. I would call them pussies but it would be granting them far more credit than they have earned.

    Does nofuckingbody understand “shall not be infringed.”?

    […] You may recall that KT Ordnance was raided for, err, well, no one really knows as it’s secret (See past coverage here and here). The latest at FMN: A Montana gun-kit dealer’s home was raided by FBI, BATF, and Canadian law enforcement agents, after he gave “subversive” literature to his local Sheriff, according to a story posted on an online news site.
