I have struggled to understand the latest screeching about 3D-printed guns…

But the problem has been explained to me at last, in terms I can understand.

I am appalled that you cannot understand why this plastic gun is a SERIOUS, MAJOR threat to the security of our country and its people.

It is so obvious that I shouldn’t even have to explain it, but I shall, and I’ll try to use small words so that you can understand it.

Someone might melt it down and use it to make a straw.

Ah! Thank you! I am persuaded.

Cody Wilson should go straight to the camps. For the Turtles!

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Perhaps some day your personal computer will be able to print out a smoothly operating and deadly Glock clone, but the 3-D printed guns I’ve been seeing in pictures look to be less functional than a carefully made zip gun. Zip guns have been around for how long?

    If I were a TSA bureaucrat (and thank God I’m not), I would be more worried about disguised weaponry.

    I’ve been haunting twitter, reading the terror stricken posts from the poor folks who suffer from hoplophobia about how Mr. Wilson’s Liberator will be the end of the world. How it is invisible to detection etc., etc. This is all nonsense. If the metal detectors can detect a dime in my pocket as happened at Vancouver Airport this past may, I’m sure they can detect the nail used as a firing pin or the metal in a bullet. Personally I think things like a Polyresin Non-Metallic CIA ” Letter Opener ” Serrated Edge Covert Cutter Knife for $14.99 on Amazon are a greater threat.

    The Liberator is a single shot firearm with a range of a couple of yards. When used, there is a serious chance of it shattering in the users hand. The noise would bring everybody running and the user would have nothing left to shoot anyone with. And all this, people are loosing their minds. Jeff Cooper was right, we are living in the age of the common man.

    An assault straw even, with a bendy thing.

To the stake with the heretic!
