Lego Demands U.S. Gun Maker to Stop Making Pistol That Looks Like a Toy

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

The kids toy giant Lego is demanding Utah’s Culper Precision cease producing handguns that look as if they were made from Lego toys.

BBC reports that Culper Precision does custom work on Austrian-designed Glock 19 pistols. Culper Precision refers to its custom Glock 19 as the “Block 19.” 

Culper Precision noted that it came up with the idea of the gun as part of an effort to “highlight the pure enjoyment of the shooting sports.”

But the Danish company Lego demanded Culper Precision cease making the pistols, as they are “covered in what looks like Lego bricks.”

Michael Bloomberg-affiliated Moms Demand Action contacted Lego about the pistol, after which Lego sent their “cease and desist” letter, BBC reports.  The group’s founder Shannon Watts exploded on Twitter.

The Daily Beast noted that Culper Precision removed the Block 19 from their website on Tuesday.

Culper Precision made sure to point out that the Block 19 had only been available to buyers who could legally buy a gun.

The push to stop production of a gun that was only sold to those who could legally buy it comes as law-abiding citizens are seeking ways to defend themselves from the crime surge that followed the “defund the police” movement and Democrat-sponsored gun control.

During his Sunday CPAC speech Donald Trump pointed out the left’s effort to disarm law-abiding Americans: “The same far-left Democrats who are defunding police are also leading an all-out crusade to strip you, the law-abiding citizens of America, of your God-given Second Amendment rights.”

  1. Lego has no jurisdiction authority to demand anything. The Lego name is nowhere on the product. Other companies do manufacture toy building blocks similar to Lego, so that is added incentive to tell them to go piss off. When I was a kid, toy guns were made that looked like real ones, yet there were none of these “mass shootings”. This is what happens when parents dump their kids off at daycare centers and there is no parent at home teaching the kids right from wrong. Those kids become adults and the cycle perpetuates.

  2. I made a gun the looks like an armalite brand. No legal issues. I made a hammer that looks like a rifle. I have a lighter that looks like a 50bmg ….
    My point. If I don’t use your trademarked name go sit on it.
