Read about the purpose of the 2nd amendment. I'll give you a hint, it's not for hunting deer.


This does not infringe on your precious 2nd amendment. You can still buy your weapon of choice from a store after a way to short/small back ground check.
And if that's to harsh, go to a gun show and buy whatever you want without a background check!

You people keep baffling me.

It was proposed during a time of tyrannical government. And look at where governments in the world are going today. If you don't agree that they're becoming more tyrannical then you need to wake up. I'm not sure in the situation in AU, but here in the US the government wants to have windows into every facet of our lives.


I'm sure the Australian Gov't would be just as quick to limit the ability for the average person to print a deadly weapon. Although, I do admit the American Gov't appears to be a little tiny bit evil (a little goes a long way) I don't think there is any malicious intent here. I'm pretty sure they just don't want Joe Schmoe printing out a Gun. Fair enough, I don't either.

Also, it's becoming overly cliche to say "Wake up"; I'm awake.

And if you beleive the second amendment will somehow allow you to forcibly change things a government in the modern world is doing then you, too, need to wake up.

Who cares about the second amendment. This printed gun is a major problem overall, that news articles and people here seem to not understand or even mention.

Problems with a 3D gun that is home made.
1. Will bankrupt gun manufacturers and put 1000's of people on unemployment.
2. No way to trace or track the weapon. Build it, kill someone, melt it... within hours.
3. EVERYONE HAS ACCESS to a gun now. I no longer have to be a US citizen to obtain a gun legally. Any Terrorist, Murderer, Mafioso, etc no longer needs to go through the trouble of obtaining an illegal weapon. Just go home, sit with your family as the printer is printing a "document".
4. Can pass through metal detectors, especially if you use metal that doesn't go off on metal detectors. (I think metal detectors have a minimum limit on metal before they go off.)
5. 3D printed objects are incredibly light, easy to conceal and hide it almost anywhere.
6. If you have technologically competent children in your house, they can make it themselves without searching your house for a gun or finding one "accidentally."

Soo many more problems with this entire process that I cannot write it all down. I can also predict some "genius" figure out how to build a lethal bullet too using a 3D printer.

Einstein should of stated "Geniuses build technology to better the planet, but idiots will always try to weaponize it first."

In the foreseeable future, I can see 3D printers become illegal if 3D Printed weapons become a real problem. Thus, a great technology would forever be lost.

Yeah, I think it's about time you moved out of Syria.

The government will leave the 2nd amendment alone, it's none of their concern in the first place. Your puny gun won't match a drone strike in a hypothetical revolution anyway.

I highly doubt 3D printers will be made illegal. It's just a tool. Much like guns, it's what you end up doing with it that matters.

The only thing I imagine the government could do would be to track downloads of this material, much like the feds do with child porn and such.

Fat lot of good that will do - real guns are far more readily available than printed guns in the US.

They need to scrub the love of guns from the American psyche.

There are other countries where you pretty much have solid rights to gun ownership as a citizen, like Austria. Austria does have a licensing system, although many US states like New York do, too.

i have a feeling this has more to do with the gun manufactures losing money than it does with the government's concern over someone shooting someone else....

hahahahaha it's laughable that you're under any delusion that a rag tag militia can go up against the US army if only you had a couple of puny guns. if your guns are so essential to your rights, then why is the US one of the most backward and least free in the western world?

Or, in summary, epic trolling.

I think you've been watching a little too much of the Fox News guide to sensationalism.

People have been able to build improvised explosives for many, many years now - something which is far more deadly than a crappy 3D printed pistol. Has the world ended? No.

Have fertilisers been banned? No. Have pressure cookers been banned? No.

This is a mountain out of a sub-atomic molehill.

but fox usualy goes right wing, which in favor for gun ownership.

anyway, is the printed gun fully functional?
