    That’s great, but the government will still make them illegal somehow and also, what good is a gun without ammunition? The government is both buying up all the ammunition and preventing it’s import. Also, individuals can’t afford a 3d printer and the government will probably make sure no one can buy one anyway, or at least have to “register” it and show proof you were never on Prozac! Totalitarian state, man. Totalitarian state. What we need is a militia and to mass produce them and figure out how to make 3d ammunition while we’re at it, but- guess what- THAT’S exactly what they want, too!!

      I think that it’s more about the concept of manufacturing more then what is being manufactured.

    Very Good, Now if you could make the Bullets, Powder & Primers & Cases, you’d be all set! As What good is a GUN without any AMMO to feed it?

    • dan

      lol. ammo doesn’t come from the ammo-fairey….use it and someone somewhere will manufacture it (for a price)

  • Quester55

    you can have all the Guns in the world, However, Without the Ammo to feed them, you’ll have nothing less than a Pile of Scrap!

    out-******* -standing…one more reason to love those Texicans

  • donna

    great, more guns on the street used to kill people, we don’t have nearly enough now. thanks a lot Texass . . .

    • Alan

      And perhaps more guns to save people Donna. There is a flipside to every issue. Guns aren’t used only for killing. They provide security against those elements of our society that do the actual killing. I’ve been shot twice, once in the face with a .38 caliber round and again through the shoulder with a .45 and I hold no grudge against the weapons that fired them but instead only against the perpetrators who used them in a wrongful fashion. Guns are simply tools of a different nature.

        Yes Alan, that may be. But I’m sure the parents of all those murdered children at Sandy Hook Elementary School might have a different perspective.

        • Alan

          No doubt some would Donna but their perception of things are being guided purely by emotion and not common-sense. What happened at Sandy Hook was an avoidable tragedy to be certain. Had even one teacher there been armed and professionally trained with a firearm the outcome might have been very different. Gun-Free zones provide a “killing-field” for which every deranged member of our society has an unfettered area to operate within. Such events as these mass killings will never be diminished so long as evil exists in our society.
