I noticed during the convention the Defense Distributed folks had a successful test firing of their 3D printed gun. I had expected a plastic barrel to be a 3D printed grenade, and while it sounds like the barrel won’t last long, they got their 3D printed gun to spit out something, at least. The anti-gun folks are going insane, and Schumer is already moving to try to put the cat back in the bag. Sorry Chuck, but you can’t stop the signal. It’s over. Gun control is now pointless. Without controlling information, you can no longer control guns, and controlling information has never worked out well. From that article:
The current fully plastic gun isnâ€™t a great weapon but itâ€™s the first. Any objections to it being a big deal because of how crude or clumsy it is, is kind of like looking at the Wright Brothersâ€™ Flyer and saying it doesnâ€™t matter because no one is going to want to fly 120 feet. Wait and see.
Yep. It’s not going to get better for advocates of gun control from here. Welcome to the future.
