    You know they will quickly pass some kind of law to ruin our fun. I googled it to see if this has been posted yet so don't yell at me, yell at google.

    You trust your computer with your passwords? That seems unKirklike

    For srsly. What happens when the government hacks into Mozilla's databases and backtraces to his PC using his own stored password to illegally decrypt his harddrive and squeeze all the troof out of it?

    The good news is, the ATF and holder won't have to arm the drug cartels anymore, they can just give them a printer.

    Do you think we'd all have computers and the Internet if they figured out in the 80s that people could copy movies and music with them?

    I just want to be able to fab things like replacement swing-arm lamp clamps or custom PCB cases and all Johnny Texas can think of is plastic guns. Maybe the college student with the brilliant idea can cut the shit until everybody's got their 3D printers already.

    Jay Rockefeller said the internet was the biggest mistake the government made and now that its out there they need to have Chinese style control of the internet... for our safety of course.

    It is legal to build your own firearms, you just can't sell or give them away.

    And I wouldn't trust a plastic gun to withstand more then a few rounds before it fails.

    Not a new thing. There are also laws concerning the printing and displaying of currency. For example, you are not allowed to print double sided bills and bring them out in public. Only one sided, and they have to be substantially larger than actual bills.

    To be fair, not EVERY law is bad. Regarding printing guns - I'd be more concerned that the thing will blow up in my face. Do consumer-grade 3D printers even have the tolerances to produce something as precise as a working firearm? I don't know.

    According to the ATF you can modify air soft guns to make them fully automatic assault rifle machine guns with high capacity magazine clips that shoot at high speeds.

    I'd love to see that ATF Agent fire a 'converted' AirSoft rifle with full powered military loads. I'd be behind a berm with a remote camera catching the action.

    The ATF is going after people 3d printing guns I read a story about it the other day on ARS Technica. I can't wait until everyone has one of these 3d printers in their homes. It's going to be awesome to go to a torrent site and download 3d models illegally, because you know shit like that is going to happen.

    The ATF is in need of disbanding.

    How long have CNC machines been around? Why are we now worried about 3D printers?

    If I ever got a 3D printer, the first thing I would do with it is make a bigger 3D printer.

    So would this violate the 1st Amendment or the 2nd Amendment?

    Kirk.....how did you find Wackbag? I mean...I feel like we found you but...how did you find us? What did you see here that interested you? How is it that you perused this forum during a period of post inability, learned our ideals and some extent of our personalities and decided, "Hey, this looks like a place where I can be heard."

    I do not enjoy you.

    Well and before that EDM... Wire Cutting... etc...

    My buddy is a Master Tool and Dye maker... should he be arrested by the ATF because he could take a chunk of steel and make a firearm?

    Maybe he's working on a new formula for anodizing dyes?

    Not if it's a breakthrough color-shifting product that will let users select the look of their gun for the day with a quick static charge..
