    While overseas, I became a news junkie mainly because my boss (a 2-star) was one. It's horrible and I stopped completely for quite a while upon returning stateside then started to only read the news (FOX) once a day, every morning. However, I have recently started to include the Daily Wire, for better or worse, and this morning I found this item of interest which I wish to pass along... It truly is a completely different approach to eliminating gun control. Interesting article...

    How This 'Crypto-Anarchist' Could Completely Destroy Gun Control

    Interesting take on the implications upon the 2A and I guess the technology has been out there for a while. I don't, however; see many buying the 3D printing mill to produce their own firearms. Perhaps a few...

    DR, No, neither do I; however, I think that is not the point. The point would be they would have to outlaw 3D printing, printers (the mills) or etc. showing how ridiculous these laws have become and how they cannot control anything. I think it is a really interesting idea and approach instead of the same old 'shout and pout' that doesn't seem to work.

    3D printers have the ability to turn any round of ammo, anywhere in the word into a weapon.
    Plus a spring or 2 and a bit of metal for the firing pin.

    Just wait till they come out with a 3D Sputtered Metal Printer.... Then things will get VERY Interesting, for sure....

    When he first released this, I knew the horse was out of the barn. Europeans are deluding themselves if they think their population isn't going to use these.

    They allready have 3D metal printing, they use it in aerospace, engine building/restoration, and im sure firearms could be easy to add to the mix if not allready in use.
    I had my 1932 Imperial engine repaired using type of 3D printing. Parts for that engine are almost non existent, so new parts have to be made and that is ultra expensive. What was really awesome about the repairs that wrre done, they were able to match the metallurgy exactly in the repairs and then the machining operations were basic after that.

    So, what you are saying, if I understand you correctly, is basically they used original parts since metal is same as is the specs and size and etc... Interesting as I never thought about all the old things that could be restore given this method. Very cool!

    EDIT: You know...this will start completely new businesses. Just producing the CAD drawings for the printers will be lucrative and the demand will ensure the costs stay down... Wow! I need to think more about this...

    A special thanks to @Bandit99 for this OP. I was just assured that my GG2 should be here by Christmas.
    This is gonna cost me another diamond..

    Its a pretty neto set up they have for engine parts restoration and new made! Im having a cylinder head made up in Oregon, and its going to make this old girl sing! I had to have the crank shaft completly rebuilt, all the rods and other parts, it was pretty far gone, but now its like brand new and even better then it ever was!
    Bandit99, its sort of like spray welding, only it has deep penetration, and is easiely able to "print" from scratch, the real trick is keeping the metal hot enough to maintain grain strength and structural integrity! While i was having mine done, they were restoring old parts on a Pratt and Whitney radial, as well as a cylinder head for an old Continental inline 8 engine! Pretty neet to see it being done!

    Along the same lines... didn't they outlaw a certain resolution scanner so it was next to impossible to print your own US currency from a scanned image..., this is before the embedded treads, and watermarks on the paper, just bleach a $1.00 bill and print a $50.00?

    Metal casting, particularly non-ferrous metals has been around a while now. Cheap and not hard to learn well enough along with a few hand tools and files for, oh say, spear points or just maybe something as advanced as an axe head. They going to regulate coal, wood or maybe propane and electricity? Any competent mechanic,machinist, or metal working hobby artist can build a passable fire arm that would enable them to acquire a more advanced "factory made" means of launching projectiles. Passing meaningless laws "for the children" will only cause more of the newly awake to explore the possibilities of hobby metal,wood,and plastics working.

    Pipe guns have been around forever, it ain't even gotta be purdy to make someone dead.
