That is a really cool video. It is nice to see that the american spirit of "Don't tell me what I can't do" is alive and well.

That's fine, but some people clearly should never be allowed to own or handle anything more dangerous than a nerf ball or a handful of air. They may be able to give a well-reasoned argument for allowing people to own weapons, but completely unable to control their own actions and temper. THOSE are the ones who are the most dangerous and laws are ALWAYS written to control the small number who are causing problems by controlling everyone.

Problem is that those people seem to have no issues getting access to them now anyway no matter what the law says. Not sure that a person that does not have the means to obtain one now will be any better when 3-D printing comes main stream. The wackos that you are talking about, can and do in their fits of rage use anything they can get thier hands on including rocks, sticks and hammers.

After wacthing this guys video, I am not sure if he is trying to make access larger or proving the piont that more needs controlled?

3-D printing is not going to make a plethora of AR-15's on the street - even when 3-D printing becomes more mainstream. It is still an empty lower receiver that needs to be built and you still need the upper receiver. It's just not practical to think that gangs or criminals will be whipping out lowers and creating mass stashes of weaponry.

Money talks- if someone has a ton of cash, and some gangs do, they can find someone with a 3d printer and the ability/desire to make these for whoever pays. I was talking to someone who sells at gun shows- he said a known gang leader would go to the shows and walk down the aisle, pointing to certain guns. Behind him was a group of his minions and they would work the deals so they could buy anything possible, with cash. They had been there earlier to find out who was a licensed dealer and who wasn't, so they'd only buy from the non-licensed ones.

OTOH, we recently had an ATF debacle here, intending to remove guns from the streets. Unfortunately, someone broke into the building this was being run out of and stole some of the weapons that had been bought as well as some of the ATF's weapons, including at least one machine gun (not sure which type, this was the term used in the news article).
