Thread: BREAKING NEWS: 3D printed gun plans removed from public by State Dept...

    Another article on the 3D gun, this one shot 9 times (with a string pulling the trigger, for safety). It was built on a $1700 3D printer for about $25.

    My high school has a 3-D printer in our CAD classroom.
    If I could count the number of times someone tried to make a bong or pipe in ceramics class... I can only imagine where this is going to go.

    Plastic gun, based on Liberator, Featured on NCIS tonight. Homegrown terrorist returning to US uses it to commit suicide rather than be captured by NCIS.

    And guess what BATFE has done, made it a requirement that the owners of 3-D printers that are used to make a receiver get a manufacturer's FFL. It also applies to any gunsmith, or machine shop that makes an 80% receiver functional or even if the machine shop allows someone for a fee to use their equipment to machine out the recesses or fire control points.

    http://www.atf.gov/sites/default/fil...unsmithing.pdf Another example of the DOJ legislating things that Congress is who should do it if it needed doing in the first place. Printing ( additive manufacturing ) is on pg 5 of the 6 page ruling.

    And does this mean we have to register our 3D printers with the government so they know where they are?? You know, just in case.
    Seriously, where do these idiots keep coming from?

    Remember, nature abhors a vacuum. Nature just tries to fill that vacuum with idiots at times. DC has been a vacuum for quite a while but normally the sucking sound is just your money going there.

    But we already have enough firearms laws, congress doesn't need to pass any more. We just need to enforce the ones we have.

    I'll disagree. We have too many firearms laws. About 90% violate the Constitution.

    In different versions the Liberators (and a ton of other things) have been on Pirate Bay for years (longer if you are talking about the original plans for it, less time if you are talking about the CW/DefDist Liberator) and people keep making their own versions. I also recall there was recently a major law enforcement seizure of about 50 Pirate Bay servers, which I don't think matters much in and of itself since if the site or sites went down it would probably be for the better since people would be forced to "raise their own flag" (clone, decentralize from Github, etc - in other words, make decentralized versions of Pirate Bay) which apparently happened almost 400 times already before even last year ended. So how many copies of that little Liberator have been downloaded from the re-emerging hydra from Pirate Bay alone (not to mention the many thousands of other sites from which one could potentially grab such files from)? Who knows. Probably millions. How many have been printed to a 3D printer (and fired at a range)? Probably a lot less. How many could be printed? A whole damn lot, and more once the cost of the printers goes down and the ease of getting better and stronger materials goes up.

    I kind of chuckle when I watch law enforcement (and the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs wing of the Dept. of State) attempt to control the internet. Sure they've shut down sites as best they can, because apparently they think they must "control things" before breakfast, but they must feel pretty impotent in the face of billions of downloads of well-armed lambs, nyan-cats, and of course, porn.
