He probably honestly wants regulation so only some groups of people can have the 3D printers. Gun fear, but really it's greed. If he wasn't in a
privileged office he would be saying no to that regulation.
Just wait for the future when we have little remote controls that can upload and download entire objects in and out of the ether. (okay, perhaps in a
thousand years) Or how about printing a 3D replica of someone's head, for the illegal immigrants -- er, I mean undocumented trespassers -- to wear as
a disguise when running across national lines?
Who commands hierarchical privileges? What state does he truly believe he is representing? If he really is from California, shouldn't he be
regulating the substances used in the printers, to make sure they are recyclable and low in BPAs?
I suppose a 3D object registration office is due. It is about as ridiculous as registering sewing patterns for clothing. Oh wait, they do have
something like that. I imagine a 3D printing court will have to be opened for extra state lucre.
And yet, even through all this prohibition and registration, there will always be illegal manufacturing and knockoffs. So if California doesn't let
the printing competitively fly, then the rest of the world will make advances in printing and the regulated states will be in a technology famine.
Maybe to print is free but to sell would be at a cost.
Probably the FBI put the regulator up to this. They need the regs so they can make money in enforcements.
