"Juden haben waffen!" Kurt Hofmann reports "CSGV becoming increasingly frantic over 'printable gun'"
"I, myself, remained on the balcony and fired at the confused and embarrassed Germans with my Mauser. From my balcony, I could see them in all their helplessness and their loss of control. The air was full of wails and shouts. Many of them tried to run to the walls of the houses for cover but everything was barred and beyond that, death was pursuing them. In the noise, the fluster, and the cries of the wounded, we heard the astonished outcry of one of the Germans: 'Juden haben waffen! Juden haben waffen!' ('The Jews have arms!') . . .
The battle lasted for about a half an hour. The Germans withdrew and there were many corpses and wounded in the street." -- Recollection of the opening engagement on 19 April 1943 of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising by Haim Frymer, Jewish Fighting Organization, quoted in Resistance by Israel Gutman, New York, 1994, pp. 206-207.

The government monopoly of violence advocates are wetting their panties again.
CSGV and their fellow travelers are so committed to their sick agenda of a "government monopoly on force" that they wish death on those who would make that monopoly impossible. Such people are exactly the reason the "Wiki Weapon" project is so vital to not only Americans, but to the world.
meh...most of CSGV and it's followers fall into the "active stupid" category.
All the more reason to study metal machine shop in school.
Metalworking skills long ago replaced flint knapping.
3D printing in plastic is just a distraction, but proves a point that government cannot control everything. As an example, look at how weapons are manufactured in prisons, where the government has the illusion of 100% control of the inmates.
I think it would be an interesting site to visit. If you have a mill and lathe, or access to both; the only difference between one gun and a hundred, is one.
Note how worldwide the Govt monopoly on violence crowd are always those who believe that they are enitiled to the largess gathered by the govt and are prepared to have it gathered by force and threat of death for their advantage!
Too timorous to steal for themselves they expect the govt to do it for them ...
Well, of course they're frantic, Mike. This is the end of gun control as we know it. Like some people here, I'm old enough to remember carbon paper and mimeographs. Now you can walk into a store and walk out 10 minutes later with a printer capable of doing things that no one imagined back then. Where do you think 3D printing will be in 10 years? 20 years?
The ironic part is that a lot of people have the story wrong. Certain people have been 3D printing AR lowers and such for awhile now. They function, but you might not want to take a carbine class with one. The guys in this latest story appear to be trying to make a one-shot - probably a .22 - almost entirely with the printer. Kind of the next logical step, but I don't believe the materials are quite there yet.
I think the guys going after that printable gun are going at it wrong. As I understand it, they want to print a gun that fires regular cartridges. That will work once. After that the barrel is melted. Instead, I suggest they go for an airgun, like the ones Lewis & Clark used in their expedition of the early 1800s. Print the plastic barrel. Wrap it with steel wire, glass fiber, carbon fiber, or some such, to give it strength. Make a flask to hold compressed air: plastic with glass fiber winding. These are used in the aerospace industry, and regularly handle pressures up to 3000 psi. Instead of rifling the barrel, I suggest making it smoothbore and using bullets like rifled slugs for shotguns.
If anyone wants to follow up on this idea, be my guest.
"Printable" guns - or anything else FTM, have long been available had one the means to invest in the technology. Fact is, guns are such simple mechanical devices anyone - with a much-cheaper modicum of readily available tools, materials and knowledge - can make very effective short and long range weapons . Not unsurprisingly to the knowledgable, blow-back submachine guns are among the easiest to construct. >Jeff

Here's the article on a 3-D printed AR lower (yes, plastic).
Note that printers that use powdered metal are getting cheaper as time progresses, so a truly printed gun isn't far off (10-20 years?) for the average person.
Of course, getting the designs for something simple like a Sten Gun or "Greasegun" - which were both designed to be ultra-cheap yet effective - and manufacturing many, many multiples of their parts wouldn't be difficult. Of questionable legality, given their full auto capabilities, but if/when the SHTF, I don't think that many will care.
