Gun Control is about to become obsolete.

This is a discussion on Gun Control is about to become obsolete. within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I saw this coming a mile away. Next phase will be 3D printers that can make more 3D printers. ... then they will become self-aware....

    In its simplest form, imagine a zipgun but with a much more refined handle/trigger mechanism attached to it. This can be done today.

    The schematics can be downloaded from Internet for free today. The computer to run it can be bought at Best Buy for under $400.

    The technology available today is not able to do anything amazingly fancy like fashioning an entire firearm from thin air, but it's only a matter of time. Can you print an 1894 Remington today? No. But you can print the lower receiver for A.R. 15. (Have Blue [dot org] & 'Wiki Weapon Project' Aims To Create A Gun Anyone Can 3D-Print At Home - Forbes)

    This is the future.
    As I said, my concept was of a decent firearm...hence the mention of metal. I guess I didn't think you were talking about straight-up plastics. And if you don't think that GC advocates won't eyeball this concept in the near future, then you are simply wrong...in my opinion.

    There's no way you could build a printing device to create a functioning reliable firearm, or a copy of an existing one.


    On the other hand, wait 10 years...

    Are you telling me a "printer" using ink and paper can magically spit out a functioning firearm? Feed the data into a CNC machine, put a suitable piece of quality steel into the lathe, and push the start button. For a couple hundred grand(or more), and a large room to house everything, and electrical service to power it- you can have most of the parts to build your gun. If it was easy S&W, Remington, Collt, Ruger,etc. would have already figured out how to do it.

    Nope.

    In about 10 years though, maybe less, a "printer" using composite materials and proper heat and/or chemical processes will be able to magically spit out all the parts to a functioning firearm... some assembly required.

    Keep your high tech printers Mr. fancy pants. As long as there's steel pipes or flare guns, buckshot will always have a launcher. :P

    As its already been said, ammo will be damn near impossible to get ahold of before we actually have to worry about the actual gun issue.

    Why do some people refuse to accept reality?

    If you doubt the existence of such technology, why don't you just watch the linked video? Or Google it?

    Printing ? I don't think that's the proper word to use anymore...

    I hereby advocate a 3 day waiting period for said machine. Then, those who live in California can only purchase material enough to make guns that are 85% recycled material and magazines that hold only 10 rounds.
    Folks in Cook County, aka Chicago, sorry, but we won't allow you to own one. You people just want I run aroun the streets killing people.

    This is really fascinating. I'll be the first to admit that I am technology impared but I stopped doubting science and technology back in the 80's. We met a friend of a friend casually in a bar in Tampa who showed us something he was working on. He pulled a wooden shoe box thing out of a bag and took out a phone handset like the old rotary phone. He said before long people would be able to have their own personal phone and be able to call from anywhere...just like you could use a car phone (at that point).
    I remember thinking, "that seems a little unlikely". LOL

    I now believe anything is possible.

    ReadWrite – How 3D Printing Is Inflaming The Gun Control Debate

    For those who don't know, 3d printing is at the same stage today that personal computing was when Woz and Jobs founded Apple. Mark my words, it's a matter of time before every home has a 3d printer. When they do, the whole issue of gun control WILL be irrelevant. When criminals can print whatever weapon they want, there will be no way to argue we should ban guns. There will be no way to keep them out of their hands.
    .

    Sorry my french... but it's a total BS.

    3D printing a katana or a knife will be more faster than 3D printing a gun.
