    of the technology. It will continue to improve. It is the PERFECT way to produce a disposable murder weapon. But for folks who check under their bed every night for commies and brown people, the technology is a god-send. A 100% UNTRACEABLE, UNREGISTERED weapon.

    As the tech improves, more people will buy this and make their own arsenal, rather than buy serialized, "registered" firearms from manufacturers.

    This the gun industry cannot allow.

      Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed. --Herman Melville

        and the public that they are now in the business of producing untraceable weapons perfect for assassins and terrorists?

        The courts have always ruled that things like serial numbers are perfectly Constitutional, and making "print your own gun" machines is too big a stretch even for the gun industry.

        Also, this is a completely different business model and dynamic. Unlikely they will be able to adapt. Hollywood and the recording industry are certainly having a hard time.
