    Is gun control becoming obsolete?

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/weapons-made-with-3-d-printers-could-test-gun-control-efforts/2013/02/18/9ad8b45e-779b-11e2-95e4-6148e45d7adb_story.html

    Will it become illegal to manufacture your own guns without a permit?

    Over 300 million guns in America, and we need more...right?

    Good luck 3D-printing your own gunpowder.

    I'm seein' a lot of hurt hicks calling tech support with this one.

    Black powder is easy to make. Other types of gunpowder are more challenging but it can still be done.

    Yep, sulphur, charcoal, and salt peter , I made black powder when I was in the 7th grade, no problem.
    Modern gunpowder is another story.
    But so what, you aren't gont to make a gun from a plastic 3D copier, no matter what the hystericaL LIBTARD PRESS WANTS TO SAY.

    Seems that a machine shop could make almost any weapon you wanted.

    Don't be so sure.

    You can make your own booze, too. But quality control is a bitch, and the cost of goofing the chemistry mighty high.

    You can buy it without a background check. Your point is moot.

    Seems like a big effin' waste of time to me. I recommend reading books instead, preferably ones without a picture of Glenn Beck in an SS uniform on the front cover.

    Are you gonna cry now? You don't handle being wrong very well.

    Even if legislation is passed to regulate gunpowder people will find a way to make it themselves. This is the information age. :'(

    Oh I couldn't care less about being wrong on this one. I just think such obsessions over popguns is pathetic and a waste of time. Have fun 3D printing your tricorn hat, too -- but don't forget the tin foil lining to deflect the U.N. black helicopter particle-beam mind probes.

    I don't own any guns and I have no intention of manufacturing them. I just think you left wingers are stupid with your belief that gun control with solve a damn thing. I don't know why I bother telling you intellectually challenged dopes that though. You are all stuck in the 20th century.

    This is the 21st century. Get used to it!

    I wouldn't want to try firing one of these things, can the barrel of an assault rifle made of this kind of plastic really cope with the pressure? Assuming the plastic in a cheap off-the-shelf 3D printer is up to it then I think the main worry they expressed in the article wasn't that people might get guns, but that the guns would not be magnetically detectable and the technology allows the creation of single use guns that aren't for the kind of generic self-defence you seem to regard as a protection from the state.

    Nitroglycerin and Nitrocellulose are easily made and are a colloid mix for modern smokeless powder. I wouldn't recommend it though. Better to have a slingshot and bow and arrow as well as air rifles that don't make much noise if you have to resort to making all the components of ammunition. Plus that you might touch off the Nitro and your wives will be pissed at having to clean up the mess as you are either dead or in the intensive care unit at the hospital.
