Defense Distributed's 'Ghost Gunner' brings gun manufacturing to the masses

When millions of Americans, with neither the metalworking and gunsmithing skills to build firearms by hand, or the wealth to buy equipment sufficiently sophisticated (at the prices such equipment commanded until now) to do so through automation, can nevertheless produce effective fighting arms in the privacy of their homes, "universal background check" laws, "prohibited person" laws, "assault weapon" bans, etc. become meaningless. The gun ban zealots' worst nightmare--uncontrollable, utterly anonymous access to so-called "assault weapons" is upon us, spelling the death of the "government monopoly on force" so beloved of the gun ban jihadis. That's a victory for humanity.

Any idiot with a drill press and dremel can finish a 80 lower. Or just make it from flat plate, then you only need a hacksaw and drill.

A special CNC machine ? Funny.

I've made plenty of ARs from both plate (for kicks-ugly but works) and 80% "blanks"

Next item: A 3D printer that can produce (obviously non-reloadable) cartridge cases.

Now if it were only as easy to make/procure the other two major parts (upper receiver, barrel) as anonymously as the lower receiver.

Solid Concepts has already produced an entire 3D-metal-printed 1911 pistol, including the barrel if I understand correctly. It's on YouTube.

Science-fiction authors have called these "fabbers", among other things, for years. The machines we're seeing now are the distant ancestors of a Star Trek replicator. Think how much the first pocket calculators cost. Compare the performance of a Ford Model A to that of a $600 beater hatchback you can get from that dude down the street. These things are going to get a LOT better and a LOT cheaper.

This technology is still in its infancy, but Cody Wilson *is* a hero of humanity for helping it along.

I can buy an upper kit at local gunstore for about $400 cash and carry, no paperwork, no ID. All you add to it is a lower receiver and mag then you are good to go.
Just don't try to sell it.
