‘3D printed gun shakes up gun control debate’

==========

Agreed.
I can only see the need for even MORE restrictions, not less.

And as for fighting the Government.
'd love to see an army of 3D printed gun against one A-10 warthog.

How pleasant to board an airplane in a world of undetectable guns.

The interesting thing is that these printed guns might end up (if they gain enough popularity) reducing gun sales from manufacturers. If the NRA is as much a mouthpiece of the gun manufacturers as I think the are (rather than a mouthpiece for gun owners) then they might actually be willing to go along with regulation on these things.

"And as for fighting the Government.
'd love to see an army of 3D printed gun against one A-10 warthog." Typical liberal thought. Let's blow away fellow citizens who don't think like us. The majority of A-10 Warthog pilots, or any military pilot are conservatives. With moral values for the citizens they serve, to perform such an act. Maybe there's a liberal pilot to fill your dreams.

Typical conservative thinking. You totally misunderstand the initial point being made about fighting the government with 3d printed guns. And then you respond with something that makes no sense anyway. Yep, typical conservative thinking.

@ FT1/SS;

I completely agree with your assessment.

As for LDS Liberal, I'd think as someone who claims to be LDS you would be someone who follows Christ, who taught us to "love [our] enemies," and "to turn the other cheek" (Matt. 5) Interesting way to follow His advice.

Typical conservative thinking that only conservatives can serve their country.

Gun control can be said to be a nobel experiment but it is an experiment that has failed. It doesn't stop violence, and in the United States it doesn't even stop gun violence because it stops only the law abiding. Gun control throughout the world makes the law abiding more vulnerable.

The temptation to pass yet another law to ban this 3d printed gun needs to be resisted. Efforts would be better spent on criminal control.

@ LDS Liberal

I'm with you about too many LDS people associating being Mormon to being Conservative.
But I would disagree with one statement. Saying that Christ was a Liberal does not quite work. Being a "Liberal" is not well defined in our culture nor is it free of political connotations and entanglements that would limit what Christ is really about. Being "Conservative" has the same problems. Christ is not Liberal nor Conservative. Talking about Christ in those terms does not help one understand his true message, which is well beyond the words or ideas "Conservative" and "Liberal".

I expect the NRA to write up some more requirements to be a gun manufacturer. They have to protect their money supply.

I expect the NRA or one of their gun manufactures to buy out the company that created this. Another revenue stream, no doubt they will NOT be against this.

"Gun control throughout the world makes the law abiding more vulnerable."

Except that murder rates are way lower in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Canada relative to the US so your statement is just completely wrong.
