CRS Firearms youtube channel owner was recently arrested by federal agents on "conspiracy" to distribute machineguns because he promoted the novelty item auto-key-card.

This could be a chance to legally fight back against the ATF and the unconstitutional NFA, hughes amendment etc.

Maybe.....

It's probably time for an 80% drop in auto sear????

Or

Plans for 3D printed "parts"?

Nah....someone probably already did that. Rrrrrright?

Aloha, Mark
the auto keycard was just a metal card with a picture of a lightning link on it. the card was not perforated etc.

in this case, wouldn't that fall under free speech?

Like, writing a book about doing illegal drugs is not the same as actually possessing illegal drugs.

I think ATF has bitten off more than they can chew on this one.

The Autocard charges are questionable at best IMO, the conspiracy charges for someone accepting a sponsorship from them even more so. I hope this really backfires on the ATF.

I would like to see a larger org take the defense case on this. Of course it is highly doubtful that the ACLU would be interested even though it should come under freedom of speech. Their hypocrisy when it comes to the 2A is quite evident.

The probable cause statement will tell the government’s story. It would be interesting to read it. It should be available by now.
Probable cause: Being a freedom loving American citizen.

The guberment knows that even if/when the charges don't stick, the real punishment is the ordeal they are dragging you through.

seems like he got himself into trouble.
Yep - poke the bear and eventually you get bit.

Aside from the legalities (or illegalities) of his arrest, right , wrong or otherwise he did not do himself any favors by making a video essentially describing a clandescent way to acquire the key card, then use it to 'scratch your full auto itch' and then 'throw it away.

Also a recent vid of his a few days ago screeching, 'FXXX the ATF' !, 'FXXX all gun laws!' and 'FXXX those constitution breaking muther FXXXers' probably didn't win him any friends or influence anyone either.

His 'punk kid' attitude, disheveled appearance and poor speaking and writing skills aren't real confidence inspiring to say the least, and combined with everything else he most likely brought most of his problems on himself.

That’s a great speech, but there is a process to this whole thing. If the Marshals were involved, it was very likely that the CRS guy had a warrant for his arrest Which would’ve required a judge’ or magistrate’s signature. I am wondering what evidence was brought to the judge or magistrate in order for them to sign that warrant. Probable cause is a very low standard of evidence so it wouldn’t have required much, but there would have had to be something.
