Philadelphia Becomes First City To Ban 3D-Printed Gun Manufacturing

Nov 22, 2013 Full story: Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph 585

Philadelphia magazine reports that councilman Kenyatta Johnson, who crafted the legislation, is unaware of any actual 3D gun manufacturers in the city, and in a surprisingly earnest statement Johnson's office explained that "It's all pre-emptive.

Even one.
Don't get me wrong. I want you to be scared of plastic guns, terrified even. I want you thinking there are armies of folks out there with undetectable firearms they made with their XBox's who are ready to climb in your bedroom window. Good luck sleeping with that image.

That way, you'll be totally surprised when you find out that anyone with high school metal shop levels of expertise can easily manufacture REAL firearms made of steel in a home workshop.
The plans, templates, and instructions are all over the Internet, along with multiple examples of the same -- books on the subject are even sold on Amazon.

I'll wait now for you to post a homophobic remark.

I guess you will want to wait until someone takes down an airliner with a plastic gun before you insist plastic guns down kill people, people kill people.

It is indeed a pleasure to exchange ideas with someone who can express themselves in such an articulate manner. Well, maybe not, but it explains why the pro-gun control movement is losing ground so precipitously in the US.

Your parents must be so proud.

I guess you don't get the paper.

PS: the plastic gun that you insist doesn't work which the BATF tested and says does work and they think is a threat will be outlawed soon.

Five pounds of gunpowder in a plastic water bottle won't set off metal detectors either. What is your point?

Outlaw something that can be made easily at home? Yes, I have no doubt that will be every bit as effective as the nationwide ban on alcohol and recreational drugs.

Is the world in which you live a nice place?

Up yours, ignoramu-Troll:

"The printed gun seems limited, for now, to certain calibers of ammunition. After the handgun round, Wilson switched out the Liberatorís barrel for a higher-charge 5.7◊28 rifle cartridge. He and John retreated to a safe distance, and John pulled his yellow string again.

>>>>>This time the gun exploded,<<<<<

sending shards of white ABS plastic flying into the weeds and bringing the Liberatorís first field trial to an abrupt end...."

"...After the test-firing I witnessed, Wilson showed me a video of an ABS plastic barrel the group printed attached to a non-printed gun body firing ten rounds of .380 ammunition

Tell you what,'shug'. How about we make one and have you go test fire it a few times?

Let's explore that scenario for a moment.

Could you get a 3D printed gun past airport security? Most likely no. While the gun itself would probably not set off metal detectors. The ammunition (still made of brass and lead) most certainly would.

The 3D printed gun is much larger and bulkier than a standard compact handgun (it has to be because ABS plastic is so weak) and would be easily detectable by X-Ray, body scanner or cursory pat-down.

Could one or more shots from a 3D printed gun take down an airliner? Well, the TSA believes you can take down an airliner with a nail file and a 200ml bottle of mouthwash. But, unlike those really cool action movies, a bullet hole in the skin or window of a passenger jet will not cause explosive decompression. You could use the gun to take hostages. But you could accomplish the very same thing using the butter knife from your business class meal. Besides, the post-911 passenger mentality is to give hijackers a massive beat down versus sitting quietly in your seat and hoping for a free trip to Cuba.

Could a 3D printed gun kill someone? Pretty sure yes. The ATF demonstration show most probably it would kill the shooter. But lots of things kill people and don't generally get people panicked.

On the other hand, seeing people get this worked up over a device that will very shortly be in most people's homes is kind of amusing. It will be even more so when we look back at the panic in 5 years or so.

So you haven't been to an airport in the last ten years, honey?

I know: you were stuck insisting plastic guns didn't work and I crammed that up your azz.

Now you want to move on to water bottles.

We are still on plastic guns.

Ammunition, I guess you were unaware, can be bullets which are projectiles that can and are used with lethality.

Do you not remember insist that plastic guns wouldn't work?
