[U] Insanity, Squared: A Real, Lethal Glock Pistol, With Primary Colored Lego Block-Appliqué, To Imitate… A Toy?!
July 13, 2021

I am. . . truly, at a loss for words.

This moronic and malevolent company in Utah — do give them a piece of your minds! — is selling a $700-plus modified Glock handgun, with plastic coverings, to make it look like a Lego toy. BUT IT IS. . . COMPLETELY LETHAL. A real, working handgun. The real Lego® people should bankrupt this jerk, for trademark infringement, and defamation of the genuine marks, and Lego trade-dress.

What sort of a monster thinks this is “super fun“? His quote. Let him have it, on blast, folks. Here is the latest, from the Wa Po, on it:

. . .About a week ago, a company in Utah that makes custom modifications to firearms debuted what it described as a fun new product: a kit that encases Glock handguns in red, yellow and blue Lego blocks, refashioning lethal weapons to look exactly like children’s toys.

“We have been building guns out of blocks for the last 30 years and wanted to flip the script to aggravate Mom,” Provo-based Culper Precision explained on its website.

It went on to argue that personal defense is a right granted by God and that gun ownership is protected by the Constitution before getting to the most important reason the company was selling “BLOCK19,” as the design was named, for $549 to $765, depending on the specifics. . . .

In all seriousness — I worry that some portion of our populace is de-evolving, back into. . . Denisovans (thus the retro header, tonight). But I suppose that allegation. . . defames the gentle Denisovans. Good grief. Onward, to hopefully, a better. . . tomorrow.

UPDATED 07.14.2021: The Lego company has buried these a-holes, thus:

. . .The Lego company also had problems with the idea of combining its venerable toy blocks with a lethal weapon.

“We contacted [Culper] and they agreed to remove the product from their website and to not make or sell anything like this in the future,” a company spokesperson told NPR. . . .

Sales have stopped — but I’d still sue for defamation of a venerable mark. Onward.
