ATF Logic

So this is a breaking story:

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) and the United States Postal Inspection Service has arrested a Florida man and seized his websites ( and for selling a drawing on a piece of metal.

The ATF raided and arrested Kristopher Justin Ervin, 41, of Jacksonville, FL, for manufacturing machine guns. Ervin did not sell or make any firearms.

The man sold a credit card-sized piece of metal with an outline of a lightning link.

So yeah this is their company banner:

I guess this means we’re all felons now, because that picture is on my website, and now it’s on your device you’re reading this on.

If you don’t know what a Lightning Link is, well here’s a PDF for you to read that includes technical drawings, which I assume are also illegal Machine guns. Essentially a lightning link is a drop-in auto-sear for an AR-15 pattern rifle, and it’s so simple you could 3D print one, you could probably cut one out of a soda can with a pair of scissors, and there are examples that are registered on the NFA as transferable machine guns, and full-legal examples command a VERY high price, especially given that you’re simply buying a piece of sheet metal.

So yeah if that shit is all machine guns…..and THIS shit is Machine guns…..

(BTW watch that video, it CLEARLY shows that a bump stock you physically pull the trigger for EVERY shot.)

So if all these things that aren’t even firearms are all “Machine Guns” what about this?

Yep, I think all these people own full-auto machine-revolvers!!!!!11!!

Seriously, try explaining this bullshit to a non-gun-nut and see if they even believe you!

    The bigger problem is that the Lightning Link was designed to work in Colt SP1 due to the lower and the way the bolt carrier is cut.
