How Is This a Good Idea?

61CA140E-0017-4F71-B918-40ABC0F02548The Trump Administration has granted Defense Distributed, a Libertarian group, the right to publish its blueprints for an untraceable, single-shot plastic handgun called “The Liberator” on the internet.

As a result, Americans will now be able to download blueprints enabling them to make guns at home with a 3-D printer. These do-it-yourself firearms have been nicknamed “Ghost Guns” because they don’t have serial numbers and are untraceable. How is permitting the publication of the plans to construct these guns a good idea?

The founder of Defense Distributed says that his company will also be publishing blueprints for semiautomatic guns like the AR-15.

Is this what Trump and his supporters mean when the claim to be making America great again?

    Because, yeah, you know, it’s not like we have gun manufacturing laws or anything. All I know is my kid is 17 in four years and that man better not get us into a war.

    The only comfort I find in it is that 3-D printers with that capability are VERY expensive and for every “gun” that comes out usable, 75% are NOT. Probably cheaper to just buy one.

    I saw a documentary of those guns. Rarely works, but still the move is stupid.

      It is deplorable. The good news is that a federal judge today blocked it…at least temporarily.
