Perhaps you’ve looked into Patent law to some degree, and maybe you thought you had a great idea and even thought about getting a patent?
At the root of patent law is the basic premise that this indeed was your idea. One of the things we see over and over is examples of people who work VERY hard at deceiving themselves.
The definition of a patent is interesting as well, basically it’s an agreement to share your idea in exchange for your right to make exclusive use of it for a certain period of time. The patent becomes public information, and anyone can look it up. Remember this when someone you know goes off on that tangent about the oil companies or big government buying up the rights to a secret patent to keep the common people from making use of a 300 MPG carburetor or similar nonsense.
In order to put the following WEBsite up, the owner must ignore 100 years of fire arms development. He must also ignore the legal definition of what a firearm is.
I can’t remember the first time I saw a primer powered rifle, but they’ve been around for a long time. If you look at a potato gun that makes use of hair spray and a flint igniter, it falls fully into the class of a firearm, and you could legally be charged with discharging a firearm within the city limits IF a police officer were inclined to charge you.
One of the things I find most interesting about the following website is the plea for you to write your Senator and have them support his delusion that ‘his invention’ is not a firearm, and should be classified as an air rifle.
Note the discloseure of ‘patent pending’ on his website.
As I close, I reflect on the times I’ve heard young people speak… “sure it’s true, I read it in the paper.”
with no further delays.. study this, it’s a doozie 🙂
As we grow older we realize that half or more of what we read is Bull Shit.. but perhaps the larger sin is when we Bull Shit ourselves. Want another example of that? Thinking that an already bankrupt country can afford Obama Care. If you think this is all going to work out just fine, I hope you don’t get away with telling your kids and grandkids you were against it when they asked how they got such a raw deal.
