There will probably be a federal law passed at some point that forces 3D printer manufacturers to disallow printing of firearm components or something like that at the firmware level.

 

then people who want to do this will just flash their gear with hacked firmware they got off the internet or buy a $40 mod kit off ebay.

no matter your opinion, this is a true political act. The gov says they want to take something and now they can't. So how does this change the perspective on gun control now, I wonder? For all the anti-gun folks out there, what do you say? Since it is common knowledge that this now exists, do you still feel the need to regulate citizens who follow the laws, so that they might defend themselves from this sort of burden? Do you still not see the need to defend yourself? Seriously, occupy, crips, bloods, kkk, and others could build armies in thier garages. So, eventually patriots will have to do the same, if we continue to push legislature that puts citizens at a disadvantage against these sort of threats.

Im going with this.

 

They already require copiers to recognize and misprint/refuse to print currency.  The solution will be a simple matter of programming commercial machines to do the same with parts that fit certain design specs.

 

Of course there will be ways around it but just like the wait period for handguns it will keep the "crimes of passion" to a minimum.

 

A Jared Loughner or Adam Lanza wont be stopped but we cant stop them today.

He could've left out the stuff in the end, but seems Holder might have to try to piss up a rope.

The simple reality is that guns will be here forever due to this technology. The internet has it now. And has been downloaded well over 50,000 times. I hope that gov legislature does not continue to put us at a disadvantage to these threats. In no reality, should the constitutionality of personal defense become a question. which means I continue to not be impressed with anti-gun nuts who cannot accept simple reality.

Only conservatives would celebrate higher suicide, homicide, and accidental death rates as progress.

So Bill Ayers is a conservative now? But seriously, this is not a celebration as much as an acceptance of the situation we're in. These skematics have been downloaded enough for most of us to understand that these people made guns permanent. Like it or not, its real.

Hey G5 I heard somewhere that former professors of Constitutional Law can't be trusted with things like running governments, you remember anything like that?

The US government has blocked a Texas-based company from distributing details online of how to make a plastic gun using a 3-D printer.

Soooo, you pretty much think this new downloadable gun is the end of the rule of law?  You think everyone needs a gun to protect themselves from the roaming packs of armed bandits sure to be terrorizing the countryside?

 

Well back in the real world, the US already has the biggest underground market for guns among developed countries, so this is not going to do much of anything.  Why would a criminal spring for a fancy as 3D printer to print a gun when he can just go out and buy it on the street?  I guess your dystopic wet dream scenario will have to wait a while longer
