Anyone can make a gun. Zip guns are easy to make. You need to ban ammo.


Ya not like you can reload shell casings.....

If you have access to basic machine shop tools you can build a gun too. Have fun trying to "control" the masses it always works out so well......

Arms are more than squirrel guns. Hell, they're more than automatic rifles. [not semi-automatic]

One round. Any more and you risk it exploding in your hands.

I wonder how accurate it is? Notice how they didn't show it's impact point.
Any steel tube can fire a bullet. Now, hitting the broad side of a barn, that's the real trick.

If you're at the point where you have to ban ammo, that is an admission that you're losing the battle. It's an erosion of what can be regulated. First it was just the guns. Then you hear all the talk about magazines. Now we're down to just the bullets being regulated. With billions of bullets out there alone, there is no way to regulate bullets. You would have an easier time trying to ban alcohol or marijuana, which both turned out wonderfully.

I like how people who claim to love science and technology are the ones so afraid of the future and technology. Same people who were afraid of splitting atoms and so on. Luddites.

@canusuck - as opposed to? You do realize for 20$ worth of hardware parts you could build essentially the same thing?

@canusuk: I'm thinking the bullets would still set off the scanners...

But there already exist several types of "non metal" guns with non-metal bullets even! Hard as heck to make, single use, very expensive...

Again: If someone's determined to cause trouble? No amount of "security" will stop them 100% of the time.

You can learn how to make a bomb online too. Should we use that argument to eliminate all laws against bombs?

@FoolsPrussia: ??
What on Earth are you talking about?

@Squrlz4: True, but like the old photocopiers, which actually TOOK a PHOTO! And came out wet (remember those?) this batch of "3D Printing" is a step in the direction of "Star Trek Replicators" eh?
(Even though those are impossible, the idea is similar.)

Wow, for $8000 you get to make infinite, untraceable guns that can get by any airport scanner as it is in multiple parts and no metal...this is not something everyone should have

I think this whole 3D printing thing is being oversold by most reporters. I have no interest in becoming my own manufacturer of objects. For example: I could already, if I wanted to, set up a woodworking shop in my basement and design and build my own furniture. But I prefer to buy my furniture, thank you very much. I have other priorities for how to spend my free time.

3D printing will be big for people who already spend their time designing and making objects: modelers, some inventors, et al. But the idea that John Q Public, in the World of Tomorrow, is going to stop going to the local stores and will, instead, stay home and make everything on his 3D printer is just plain stupid.

@SmagBoy1: If some "scary person" has $8,000+ to BUY a 3D Printer? He could buy a LOT better guns with that money. More of them too! And the ammo.

So what's actually "scary" to you? People with money? Or people with freedom.

Either way: Obama's doing his best to put an end to those things! (Money and freedom, not 3D Guns)

No Smaggy we don't call people who disseminate information terrorists. We call people who blow s--t up terrorists. See the difference?

This is the beginning of something big. Imagine sending an image digitally to a friend across the world who just 3-D prints it and instantly has some object. After this is possible, mere pictures of things will be illegal to re-send. It'll be like re-sale, since someone else can 3d print it and have the object for free. Interesting.

Freedom of information smagboy. It's a double edged sword, but is needed for true freedom.

So much for your "science and progress" isn't it, Smagboy. Stop being afraid of the future.

This is drating scary because it allows any drating knucklehead drat stick to buy a 3D printer and some plastic and print up a gun. Publishing the plans was irresponsible, stupid, non-nice individualish and dumb. I'm not trying to take your guns away, but holy drat, why not publish bomb instructions made from household items? Oh, yeah, when people do THAT we call them terrorists. This idiot is an non-nice individual terrorists poohead.

The guy who made this is not a villain, nor a messenger. he is a saint. The government should fear its people, after all, they gave it the power..

The reason these things aren't mentioned is because under current laws, you only have to register and serialize a manufactured weapon that you are selling.. In essence, if you are the manufacturer of the weapon, then you do not have to register nor transfer anything, and it's 100% legal. You can use it with no penalties. However ,the obvious dumb question would be what about felons. No , felons can't own guns, period. Rejoice.

Funny how it's a big deal when you can print a gun out, but it's no biggie when you can print out a perfectly good lower ar receiver that's good for about 1000 rounds, you can also print out ar mags. Wake up people. Gubbment's lyin to ya's

I noticed most of the more fanatical gun controlists steer clear from this subject. And there's almost no mention of it in the US government's debate on the issue The president even mentioned 3D printing in his State of the Union, but no mention of 3D printed weaponry.


The guy who made this is being made out to be a villain, when he is really more of a messenger. He is telling us what the future will be like. It's either him, this college 20-something making the first one in a controlled and peaceful way, or criminals. It's all going to happen regardless, don't shoot the messenger.
