    Now The Obama Administration Is After Gunsmiths?

    FORBS Frank Miniter ,

    CONTRIBUTOR
    "My gunsmith has a lathe, a drill press, even a barrel reamer. He uses them to repair guns. To him, they are like a car mechanic’s welding equipment, drill and cutter tools. He never thought drilling out a broken-off screw or grinding down a gun part to make a rifle’s action work smoother would define him as a “manufacturer.” But now, according to the federal government, he is a manufacturer and is required to pay a $2,250 annual fee as mandated by the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) regulations. This is what the Obama administration is now saying in a rule change."

    Thats some of the shit Rice was claiming with her witch hunt. One targeted shop owner told me that they tried to say he was a gunsmith because he had a lathe on the premises. apparently if you have a lathe, they can say you are anything they want you to be.

    i have two lathes in my basement, i aint a gunsmith.

        If you have "too much" baking soda, measuring cups, and kitchen scales that can be considered drug paraphernalia.
        I am not armed out of fear of who's in front of me.
        I am armed out of love of those behind me.

        Anyone who says money doesn't matter to them is either a FOOL or a LIAR or BOTH!

                  They still cut rotors till this very day. But I have not found a shop that can cut one straight. So I usually trash them, and buy new.

                    I am a geezer, but I hope you take my point.... Hell muffler shops have to bend and cut pipe for car exhaust systems, does that make them car manufacturers needing an export license?

                    I think if someone were to take this to court... and I am sure they will... they will cut this executive order full of holes.
