    They won't. And no matter how far off this is technologically speaking, our boys at the NRA (The Gun Industry) have to kill this baby in its cradle. This means they are going to have to come out against 3-D guns, and the wacko base will NOT be amused.

      There's nothing they can do to stop this short of outlawing 3D printers. And there's no way that's going to happen. They're dead in the water. I'd bet they'll be more chill about an assault weapons ban pass now that I could print up an AK at home. Or at least the part that is regulated most.

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

        folks in the business of profiting from death and misery are not. They will fight this tooth and nail, hypocrisy be damned. They will push to make it illegal and this is going to piss off the loonies.

        •  Sure, they'll try (0+ / 0-)

          But they will be even less successful as the RIAA and other anti-piracy organizations.
