I would not fire a plastic gun.
I enjoy playing guitar with all of my fingers.


You can always play slide with a piece of shotgun barrel, 12ga. works great.

CNN?? Please, can we post actual news sources? All of the mainstream media sources in the United States are compromised now.

It's a bit more complex than that. Students have been able to make weapons for years. It is called "Metal Shop".

In essence, officials said someone in another country -- a country the US doesn't sell weapons to -- could download the material and make their own gun.


Sounds like the US doesn't like competition as it pertains to weapons sales. I would add narcotics as well, i.e. 'war on terrorism' bs.

It's about time! These 2D printed guns aren't worth a crap.

Statistics have shown,the biggest chance of being killed is by your own government. People having more guns makes me feel safer.


Statistic (real ones not unverifable made-up ones)

say that gun deaths and injuries (I'd agree that 'goverment' neglect and malfeasance kills millions - but THAT IS A DIFFERENT MATTER FROM GUN DEATHS):

everytownresearch.org...









Get the idea ... easily available guns ... make for lots of death and injury. Yes it's the US goverment's fault for not regulating the availablity of firearms. But it is not the government (in most cases) pulling the trigger.

Now - show me yours?

Can't get pictures to post, so I guess I'll stick with links...

I reserve the right to shoot myself in the head should I so choose- that's called freedom.
I also reserve the right to shoot anyone who tries to deny me my freedom, but someone keeps perverting the laws and making it harder for me to be free.

The freedom to do what TF you want.

But about other people's freedom, including children, to not have to suffer the consequences of your 'dick waving'.

Well I will start by saying 60% of gun deaths are suicide so that statistic is a little skewed and pumped up. I really don’t have time to cite all the governments though out history who have killed their own people but if you check you will see I am correct.

I guess they are going to ban assault printers now.

What I find most interesting is that for the most part, what is considered “the gun” is perfectly safe to print on a 3D printer. The critical parts like the barrel and firing pin as well as springs can be purchased by anyone and still remain metal, thus safer. Some simple assembly and you have a working, safe firearm with zero checks and very difficult to trace to an owner by forensics.

Yet people worry about silly things like suppressors, CCW holders, legal background checked purchases, etc.

And for the record, a 1911 has been made on a metal 3D printer. So plastic guns are optional.

Nah, I heard their bullet cartridges run out super fast, and they're crazy over priced to replace.

Here is mine from the same website as yours, looks like they are cherry picking the numbers to fit their anti 2nd ammendment narrative. I guess they use the pictures in hopes that people won't actually read everything.

Note on Data Sources Both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the FBI collect data on firearm homicides — the former from medical examiners and the latter from local law enforcement. Each data set has distinct advantages and flaws. The CDC’s National Vital Statistics System records a higher percentage of all firearm deaths but fails to capture details about their circumstances, including the relationship of the perpetrator to the victim. This makes it unsuitable for measuring gun violence between people of certain relationships. In contrast, the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports (SHR) include details on the perpetrator and weapon but are more likely to be missing records because the FBI relies on police departments to voluntarily submit their homicide data on an annual basis. Despite these gaps, SHR data are utilized widely in the criminology community. The SHR do not include data from the state of Florida. Everytown obtained data directly from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Women killed by former dating partners (as opposed to current dating partners) are not categorized in the Florida data and are not included.12

Again, statistics without sources, are made up. You don't have the time. It's okay to be inaccurate but to say a verifiable number is 'a little skewed and pumped up' because you want it to be is --- well --- ....

And how, from the above, do you conclude that the numbers are cherry-picked? Thanks for actually looking at the primary sources. Knowledge of primary sources saids nothing about the methods used to derive the numbers.
