The image of Block 19 is below. Culper Precision introduced Block 19 as 'this is one of my childhood dreams and I can actually mount a Lego block on top of it.' The price ranged from $ 549 (about 60,000 yen) to $ 765 (about 84,000 yen).

However, the gun was flooded with criticism that 'children accidentally touched it.' 'Unintentional shooting by children has increased by 30% in 2020 alone,' Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, an organization that protects people from gun violence, told Lego. He said he contacted him to regulate his gun. LEGO told Culper Precision through a lawyer, 'If we continue to offer Block 19, we may file a proceeding,' and Culper Precision has removed the Block 19 sales page accordingly.

Culper Precision then cites the United States Constitutional Amendment Article 2, which guarantees the free carrying of the people's weapons, saying, 'We are sick of the past when we have been afraid of someone who dislikes exercising the rights of the Amendment 2. To emphasize the pure enjoyment of shooting sports, to convey that responsibly owning and shooting a gun is a really fun activity, rather than living in fear of the loud voices of social media. We have released Block 19. People have the right to customize their property to their liking, and it's our business to help gun owners better customize their guns. ' Said.

'Federal law prohibits toys from looking like guns, but it doesn't prohibit guns from looking like toys,' said David Pucino, a lawyer at the Gifford Law Center, regulated by the state. Said different.
