Gun Kit Makers Under Attack Again!


(Asocialist Press)
For immediate release.

Federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms swarmed through Michigan today, shutting down the nation’s largest manufacturer of “kit guns.”

“They claim these are ‘kits,’” said ATF spokesman I.M. Annut, “but they are in fact firearms.”

The manufacturer, which operates casting foundries, computerized mills, lathes and heat-treating furnaces, says the products it produces are not firearms. “We are completely within the law. There is no ‘loophole’ here,” said a company officer, who preferred not to be identified, said.

“We were able to show in court that in less than 8 hours, one of our experts was able to manufacture a single-shot rifle with parts and tools on the premises. They can say what they like; this is an illegal gunshop.”

Found on site, in addition to the industrial tools, were skilled machinists, and all the parts necessary to manufacture military weapons, including various aluminum and tool steel alloys in bar and rod form. These materials can easily be turned or milled into receivers and barrels, and heat-treated on site.

“It was the fact that all operations can be conducted here that set us off,” Annut said. “This stuff is only used for two things, and we don’t buy that story about ‘automobile parts.’ We shut them down good, and Chrysler and Ford are next.”
