Eight states sue make them illegal. I got an email last week asking for my support and a donation to help stop them. Thoughts?

We all have the legal right to build are own weapons as long as their possession meets the legal definition of allowed guns/knives etc.... to possess.

You can bet the libs and gun manufactures are against it.

They have already been released and folks are downloading them. It's all hype about nothing. Plain ignorance.

Prohibition has yet to work on anything, and only makes people want something even more.

Now 1,000's of people will try to make one of these just because the government says they shouldn't.

People across the country would never dream of smoking a cigarette and yet huff marijuana like Cheech & Chong on vacation because it has some mystic of forbidden fruit - the original example of prohibition failure, even God cannot make prohibition work.

What makes me laugh is the democrats screaming about the children, blood in the streets, and gang member and terrorists having access to them....Meanwhile, they demand open borders to allow said terrorists and gang members easier access into the country. They literally contradict themselves at every turn.

All that aside I saw on Fox news they did some federal judge shopping and found one willing to block the release of them tomorrow. The judge shopping is getting really old. They need to start removing people from the bench when ridiculous things like this get overruled.

The genie is out of the bottle and has been for years. If this gets legislated expect 80% lowers and other parts to follow suit.

It is too easy to make a reasonably accurate version of a single shot rifle or shotgun to even be concerned about this method.

That's my point, but don't bring this up to the anti's. If they realized that everything they are already worried about it happening they will try and ban current methods/processes as well.

I may (and probably do) have this all screwed up, as I only heard snippets on the radio about it at the time. Didn't someone print one a couple weeks ago and shoot it from a vice at Eagle gun range in Dallas? I think he said it cost over $1k in material, took 36 hours to print, and flew apart in all directions at the first shot.

Being a machinist, just how do you print a spring or a firing pin (the ones I have made got hardened).
I have had this discussion with some people that think it prints every part at one time, even the ammunition.
They thought it came out of the printer ready to shoot.
AND THEY VOTE.
