    It pisses both of us off because if they were testing, as they said, why did they not tell us about it? SO not a good way to wake up. Your angry, fiery mother yelling at you over the phone for something you did not do. Story of my life.

    Something else to add to the "pointless and stupid" list.

    Following the news of a successful test firing of a 3D printed gun, and subsequent take down of the group's files by the DoS (after they were downloaded hundreds of thousands of times of course), a California lawmaker has proposed what might be called "printer control".

    ............

    He’s concerned that just about anyone with access to those cutting-edge printers can arm themselves.

    “Terrorists can make these guns and do some horrible things to an individual and then walk away scott-free, and that is something that is really dangerous,” said Yee.
    He said while this new technology is impressive, it must be regulated when it comes to making guns. He says background checks, requiring serial numbers and even registering them could be part of new legislation that he says will protect the public.

    Is impossible to print certain documents and things on a regular printer, maybe they could do something like that on those 3D printers.

    Why This Is Pointless and Stupid!

    With all the hysteria going on about 3D printed guns. Here is a shotgun made from 2 piece of pipe and a pin.

    BTW - The plans for 3D printed ones are on Pirate Bay now that the FBI forced the guy to pull his website down and good luck enforcing those manufacturing standards in China etc

    It aint pointless and stupid cause the shotgun still has metal in it and can be seen by scanners and metaldetectors, the plastic gun is way harder to detect.

    Great song.

    I downloaded plans for the Sten Gun years ago. The Polish J00z made them by hand in the Warsaw Ghetto to fight the NSDAP's; who needs an $8000 3D printer?

    So how about instead of focusing on detecting the gun or the means to manufacture them (which is what this lawmaker wants to do, which is pointless and stupid), we focus on detecting the criminals? You know, that thing we should have been doing in the first place but haven't been because we were more worried about being politically correct?

    Also the plastic gun may be able to get through metal detectors, but the ammo won't and that can't be printed. Even a single .22 round will set off all kinds of alarms and have every TSA agent in the building lined up to put their hands all over your body. Better pack some lube with it.

    By the way, I doubt that requiring a holographic sticker on "real" guns is going to stop 3D printed ones from functioning.
