    Note to Representative Israel: YFI, it is already illegal to make and possess an entirely plastic gun. Enforce the laws as written, not make new a one the ATF is going to ignore.

    This technology was shown on "America's Gun: The Rise of the AR-15" that was shown on CNBC last week. Needless to say the guy behind all of it didn't represent the gun community very well. He was pretty out there with some of the comments he made.

    I saw that as well, the guy was like a James Yeager minus the goatee and meth induced rants (he was also profiled, and made a total fool of himself).

    The guy had a 3D printed lower without a serial among other things that are in a legal grey area at best. If this guy continues self publicizing and spouting his borderline extremist views he is going to draw a lot of unwanted scrutiny from ATF, I will not be suprised to hear about him being arrested for some obscure violation of the NFA. The use of 3D printing in manufacturing of firearms definitely has a lot of potential, but the way that he is going about it is 100% the wrong way of doing it. If Smith & Wesson were doing R&D on the process in their factory, they would be seen as technological innovators, this guy is coming off as an extremist nut job and that plays right into the antis hands for PR purposes.

    Unfortunately, that is how we are viewed by the anti-gun liberal crowd. That loon only reinforced their opinion. Is it no surprise that CNBC sought him out to profile?

    Read some of the conspiracy posts on this forum, we have some of our share as members.

    They say they added a piece of metal to make it legal. Could that piece be a barrel by chance? I can't see the material my son used in his high school engineering class 3D printer standing up to 35,000 psi. I'm dubious.

    A plastic spoon can be melted and sharpened into a deadly weapon. It is all about the individual, not the means they use to commit an act of violence.
    As Benjamin Franklin left the hall in Philadelphia, he was asked, “What kind of government have you given us, Dr. Franklin?” He replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

    You can take a piece of steel pipe,thread it and a threaded breech cap with a hole in it that a spring loaded firing pin fits thru,stick a cartride in the pipe,screw the breech cap on it and you have a ZIP gun,so what

    Cody Wilson is trash. He was gloating away about the AR-15 lowers he could 3d print too. He a narcissistic kid that's just out to bloat his ego. He doesn't represent or benefit the gun owning community well at all.

    I fail to see how these things being mass-produced would be good for the USA.

    Anyone could get a gun into a football game, museum, courtroom, school, bank.
