– A Texas company is cleared to put 3D-printed gun designs online
– Sarkes warns, we are on the edge of that slippery slope
Somewhere in the Great Beyond, our Founding Fathers are sitting around a table pondering the mistake they made when crafting the 2nd Amendment which states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
You see, in 1789, the year of our Constitution, common Heat included Muskets and Flintlock Pistols. These weapons had a one-round magazine capacity and could fire about 2 rounds per MINUTE in the hands of the most skilled shooter.
Thanks to our Supreme Court and the NRA, America has evolved from Muskets to AR-15’s with 30 Round Magazines. An AR-15 can shoot over 100 rounds per MINUTE, 100 rounds!
And now, we are in the early stages of producing Heat made on a 3D Printer. 3D-printed guns are made of a hard plastic and are simple to assemble, easy to conceal, and tough to trace.
After spending years fighting the federal government for the right to do so, a Texas company, Defense Distributed, was given the green light to post blueprints online showing people how to make 3D-printed guns from the comfort of their home. This was made possible due to the gun-friendly environment created by the Orange Rifleman.
Gun SAFETY advocates, and some law enforcement officials, are appalled. They are worried that this is exactly what criminals and terrorists want: guns that can’t be flagged by metal detectors, don’t have serial numbers to trace, and don’t require the usual background checks.
The argument FOR 3D-printed Heat is that these weapons will NOT be desired by criminals since the 3D-printers needed are expensive and the firearms they produce aren’t very durable.
Larry Keane, executive director of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which represents gun manufacturers states: “If you’re a Gang Banger in L.A., are you going to go out and spend tens of thousands of dollars to buy a printer to print a gun that doesn’t work very well or are you just going to steal one. Criminals can obviously go out and steal guns or even manufacture quote-unquote real guns, not 3D printed”. Larry Keane is another Rich, Old, White Guy, so he must know what he is talking about.
Duh, oh, uh, huh, what, oh, my, huh.
Sarkes, a recovering Liberal, is having some challenges on the Orange Brick road to becoming a card carrying Conservative. This gun stuff is a Uuuuuuge pothole for Sarkes. Don’t the 2nd Amendment, NRA Lemmings understand that the risk from 3D-printed Heat is NOT the LA Gang Banger, rather the well funded, home grown White Supremacist terrorist, or the well funded, stereotypical Muslim terrorist?
Load and Lock America, Load and Lock your 3D-printed Heat.
