Technology has rendered gun control pointless

07 Sep

In case you aren’t familiar with what “printing” is (and I don’t mean seeing your concealed weapons outline), it is the use of a 3D printer in order to make an object from plastic.  Many objects can be made from it and among them are firearms.

Yep.  You can buy a 3D printer and from a block of plastic design and print out your own pistol, or AR receiver, made from about $30 worth of plastic resin.

You can see the first confirmed example of a functioning 3D printed gun here.

With fine tuning and home science the 3D printing technology will soon be able to make the main parts of any gun out of plastic requiring only a few parts needed to be made of metal. 

I pose the question to the gun control zealots out there.  How exactly do you plan on stopping this?  The moment criminals can print a gun at home as easily as they could a word document your whole existence for being becomes moot.  Unless you plan on extending your half baked ideology to cover the banning and control of printers, or plastic resin.  Come to think of it, you are all about control so I could easily see Mayor Bloomberg leading the charge to do just that.

But with the advent of the printed gun your Achilles heel and baseline of deceit is revealed to the world.  You are not looking to stop criminals from having guns, you are looking for the total ban of all guns in America.  One of your leading proponents, US Senator Dianne Feinstein from California was honest enough to say it:

“Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe”


“If I could have gotten an out right ban, picking up every [gun]…’Mr and Mrs America, turn em all in, I would have done it.”

Technology has washed away your footing, if you ever had any, and now you are left with either going away or revealing yourselves to the country with your true face.  You want guns out of the hands of ALL Americans.   I mean, what criminal is going to go through all the hard work of going to buy an illegal gun now, if all he has to do is hit print?

Your 10 day waiting periods are moot.  Your background checks are pointless, your gun registration is immediately outdated.  All the schemes and hurdles you have placed on law abiding citizens (the ones who follow the law and as such jump through your hoops) in order to “prevent crime” will be revealed as what it truly is, preventing gun ownership, period.

So, to the gun control zealots, who blather on about illegal guns, loopholes, waiting periods, magazine capacities, weapons bans and all the other nonsense that criminals never followed in the first place, I say that technology has pulled back the curtain and you can no longer mask the truth; you’ve been coming for American guns all along.  

The irony is, while you were so hell bent on destroying the 2nd Amendment, in a roundabout way it was the 1st Amendment that beat you.  Who’d of thought the freedom of the press would be used to make a gun.

    You can print bullets, but would need to supply primer and powder. Unless you design and print gun to use a different propulsion system (such as electromotive – a coilgun). In that case you’d still need wire and to use ferrous projectiles, but those aren’t too difficult to add to the design. And an all plastic weapon (except for the coil) could be extremely effective at achieving high muzzle velocity.

      Great points J. Just further proof that gun control zealots really have no hope of being able to to stop bad guys from getting their hands on guns or bullets.

      All the more reason to get rid of the hurdles and hoops law abiding citizens are forced to go through in order to purchase, keep and bear arms.

    I’ve been saying this for years and I will reflect back to my original statement. A gun is a VERY simple device and can be constructed from a plethora of materials. ZIP guns are present in prisons already REGARDLESS OF THE FACT THE GUNS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN PRISONS. This technology doesn’t change anything. Prisons don’t have these 3D printing devices and yet there are still prisoners IN GUN CONTROLLED PRISONS that have guns. Gun control DOES NOT WORK. There will always be guns and everyone will always be able to obtain them. Whether they “build” them on their own or “hire” some one else to do if for them. And YES building a bullet is not very difficult. The only difficult part of firearms is making them “SAFE” and quite honestly I don’t think those that are obtaining them for nefarious purposes are real worried about them being “safe”.

    It is called “stereo-lithography” They often use it in prototypes, you can take it straight from the printer, i.e. stereo-lithography machine to what ever application you are using to test it

    Wow! Too cool.
