    How is a home-made Sten and more traceable than a printed AR-15?

    •  Theyre both just as untraceable. (1+ / 0-)

      One doesn't require any machine skill.

      If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.

        that "printed" AR will require assembly and hand-fitting/filing/tuning to operate reliably.  Not to mention some experience with the "printing" process, which is not quite straight plug-n-play yet, if I am reliably informed.

        I think you are exaggerating the requirements of one process and ability of the other.  

        Which is not to say that the tech won't improve and that it is an issue we need to discuss in advance of said improvement.  

        Note also that the level of "machine skill" required is the level of the average home tool kit owner.  Neither tech approach is one that can be eliminated from public hands without going places that will render this country unrecognizable.... and untenable as an experiment in liberty and freedom.
