On the matter of 3D printing guns….

The gun grabbing left is growing increasingly alarmed that individuals with access to 3D printers will use them to “print” AR-15s and AK-47s.

Shouldn’t they be more worried that they use them to print out 7.62mm semi automatic rifles that look like this:


Or .357 Magnums that look like this:


Or Uzi type weapons that look like this:


Gun control is going to get very, very difficult in the future.

    Simple. Just ban 3D printers. Done and done. Oh wait, already working on it.

      Gonna ban 3d printable magazines, eh? Might just as well tell people they can’t print pictures of rainbows & unicorns, or better yet – no photoshopping a picture of the President “doing skeet shooting”.

    Being a dog owner I always thought one of these would hide a small pistol well.

    Can’t happen. It would infringe on trademark rights of Nerf and Makita. Our court system would prevent the making of these guns. That and the whole military-style collapsible stock on the rifle is a no-no.
    How about one that looks like a laptop or a briefcase or a camera? Just for our TSA friends.

    RUH ROH! I’m in trouble, I have all 3 of those.

    Suggestions for new political names;

    Rubber tipped foam projector. (New legislation pending for stricter controls and safety requirements.)

    Hole production device. (Again, New legislation pending for stricter controls and safety requirements.)

    Adhesive application device. Requires 12 hours of OSHA training before license to operate. Application fee is $125. Professional use only. Fine for non-compliance is $1,500 and confiscation of device, 2 year supervised probation.

    Non issue.
    As some may remember, I’ve been dabbling in the 3D printing world a bit. It’s not that easy getting things to work right.
    Plastic parts have a lot of limitations. The durability is just not there.
    Now, I’m still working on a mag design. But I’m giving up on a totally plastic part, and will have to reinforce the part with sheet metal inserts. (I should have a testable part by the weekend.)
    The point is, I can, and so could anyone else, build ANYTHING. And I don’t need a 3D printer to do it. A hacksaw, hand drill and a file. Plus a little brain power, and it’s on!
    Oh yeah, I’ve also got drawings for a bolt together AR lower.

    Yup RD. ‘difficult’ indeed….

    First check this out… http://tinyurl.com/bdttbn7

    then just imagine the possibilities. How hard would it be to fashion a contraption that uses compressed air to hurl ball bearings? Projectile sizes from BB’s to Bowling Balls with speeds ranging from “Obama First Pitch” to “Glass-Shattering Meteor”. How much damage could you do with that tank strapped to your belt and a backpack full of “Marble”-size ammo with a simple gravity feed tube?

      Michigan’s gun laws are so stupid, that if a bb gun is capable of firing pellets, I have to register and get a handgun permit to purchase a fracking toy!
