It’s here: a gun you can make if you have a 3D printer. The price of these printers is falling.
You can now get a software blueprint program that lets you make your own gun.
This is the first. There will be many more models. Hundreds more. Maybe thousands more. They will be online for free or for a fee.
The digital blueprints can be placed on servers outside the USA or any nation that bans guns. Maybe there will be a notice: “if you live in a nation that says you may not own a gun, be sure not to do this at home.” It’s like pornography sites that say, “I guarantee that I am at least 18 years old.”
These guns will leave no trail of paper.
They may be banned. So what?
For those of us who read The Weapon Shops of Isher 60 years ago, this is a dream come true.
