When man serves his community, he does so out of care for the community and the value it brings him, and he considers the constant calculation of social reciprocity.
These considerations are rooted in the individual and harmonize with his natural motives.
When man is motivated to serve his community at the barrel of a gun, this balance is destroyed. The community no longer exists to serve his social needs, and does not care to.
Thus, the community is worthless to him, and should not exist.

The unrivaled primacy of the individual is not a rejection of community. Man is a social animal, community is necessary for man to thrive.
The primacy of the individual simply requires that the individual is not subservient to the community.
Man will, of course, serve his community (its part of his nature and its in his interest to do so), but his station must never be confused for that of a servant to the community. The community exists to meet the individual's social needs.

Uphillest battle to get people to stop begging twitter to let them speak

Lots of suspensions on Birdsite today.
If you're on this list, get the word out on your alts and your fedi accounts.

This means that, for the purposes of the amended 922(p)(2)(A), a frame is not a firearm, but it is a "major component" for the purposes of 922(p)(1)(A), which makes it illegal to possess... I guess?

"the term “firearm” does not include the frame or receiver of any such weapon;"

Which means they want the frame exception gone, right? Well, it turns out that "a firearm, as defined in section 921(a)(3)(A)," is "any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive."

So... Not a frame... How do I know its not a frame? because 921(a)(3)(B) specifically defines a frame as a firearm.

If I'm reading this right, it criminalizes the mere possession of a "major component" of a firearm which is "undetectable."

But here's the problem, and the source of my confusion.

The amended 922(p)(2)(A) reads: "the term ‘undetectable firearm’ means a firearm, as defined in section 921(a)(3)(A), of which no major component is wholly made of detectable material.”

Fine, right? Except this replaces the current language, which reads:

(B) a major component of a firearm which, if subjected to inspection by the types of detection devices commonly used at airports for security screening, would not generate an image that accurately depicts the shape of the component.

Under the amendments to 922(p)(2)(B), a "major component" "means the slide or cylinder or the frame or receiver of the firearm; and... in the case of a rifle or shotgun, includes the barrel of the firearm."

Things get weird in sec. 302. They're attacking polymer firearms by claiming they are undetectable. It criminalizes the possession of an undetectable firearm in a really weird way. I'm not sure how to parse it.

As I read it (and there's no guarantee I'm doing that correctly), it reads:
(p)(1) It shall be unlawful for any person to manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer, or receive
(A) an undetectable firearm; or

Because of the wording in sec. 301, none of those changes effect those of us who print frames or receivers.
This is because "manufacturing firearms" can only be accomplished by a "manufacturer" who does so "for the purpose of sale or distribution."

That said, sec. 301 DOES potentially make it illegal to take a "ghost gun" across state lines, so be aware of that. It also potentially kills the Ghost Gunner under the changes in 301(b).

I'm sure you're all wondering what Title III (passed in the house, not likely to pass in the senate) would functionally accomplish. Here it is, in 4 pics. (Incomplete) explainer to follow. None of this is legal advice.

The prog left is so deeply, politically ignorant, they'll actively target the guy who agrees with them half the time for assassination, rather than the guy who actually wrote the leaked draft.

Between this and Jan. 6, fucking normies suck at radicalism.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
