The Citadel, an Idaho prepping community has received approval from the ATF to manufacture firearms.
A little background…
From their website:
The Citadel will be a small planned community of 3,500 – 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson’s ideal of Rightful Liberty: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.
The Citadel applied for permission to manufacture firearms last October, and according to Citadel President Jim Mille:
In this afternoon’s mail, III Arms Company received a little note from the ATF saying: ‘Thanks for your interest, please start building firearms’.
Yup. The III Arms Company now possesses our “Manufacturer of Firearms Other Than Destructive Devices” License, otherwise known as an 07FFL, and we can legally manufacture and assemble your firearms. Oh yeah, happy days!
The company says they will start taking orders for AR-15 style semi-automatic rifles and 1911 pistols in November.
