RE 3D printing quote "they wont be protected by copyright law" heh what planet is this guy living on. They 'shouldn't' be protected by copyright law, but they definitely will try!

Also not in that story but related to 3D printing. There's a guy in the states building the blue prints, to spread over the internet, so people can make AR-15 type weapons with these machines. They don't last very long but they do work, yes it will change the world, not for the better methinks.



Sad how things go unnoticed for years until it makes popular media outlets.

Buddy over at CNCgunsmithing.com has been modeling and printing his own parts for over 4 years now. AR-15 to AR-10 parts and complete Colt 1911 lowers.

Old News. Adam Lanza just brought more attention to the issue.


Technically you cant print guns that function, not true.

BUT


You print the lower receiver which doesn't need to be as strong, but according to the DOJ that's the main component of the weapon with the SN, that's why this may be important.

Again tho, you have always been able to legally build your own %80 lower receiver out of a block of aluminium and then turn it into your own gun and its perfectly legal... DOJ states if you manufacture the firearm ( FOR YOURSELF NOT FOR OTHERS) then its legal.

^--- aka Any skilled hobbyist has been able to build a gun from scratch ( in ar-15 case's mostly the lower) for years now.


FYI I live in California so the gun laws only get better with most states. (depending on your view on the 2nd )
