Want to own an unregistered gun? Be patient. A build-it-yourself kit is almost here.
The gun control crowd is freaking out. They see what’s coming. There is nothing they can do about it.
Even the New York Times sees it.
“We now have 3-D printers that can manufacture firearms components in the basement,” said Representative Steve Israel, Democrat of New York. “It’s just a matter of time before a 3-D printer will produce a weapon capable of firing bullets.”
You’ve got it, Steve. And you and your peers can’t do a thing about it.
Liberal Democrats don’t have the votes in the House to ban extended magazines for semi-automatic AR-15s. Do they think they can ban 3D printing? If so, they live in a fantasy world.
What if the federal government passes a law against unregistered, home-made guns? How could this be enforced? Will the Feds send gun inspectors to a million homes? Over how long a period?
What if the law gets passed? That will send a signal to 40 million gun owners: “Buy a 3D printer. The Feds can’t hire enough enforcers to police us all.” It’s true. They can’t. If they try, the sales of printers will rise. Mass production will begin. Printer prices will fall.
All over the world, people who want to own guns will be able to. Cheap. Invisibly. This cannot be reversed.
The digital genie is out of the bottle.
