A person can buy a basic 1K CNC machine and make as many lower receivers(which is the restricted 'firearm' part of a gun) for some time. Spend 10K-60K on a real CNC machine and you can build them faster and cheaper than before. What is the Gov going to do? Start arresting people for owning CNC machines and chunks of metal? Because that is all it takes to build a firearm.

The 3D printing just shows that it's even easier and cheaper than people realized.

The rise of microfactory technology will make prohibition effectively impossible. You see CNC machines and 3D printers talk about building things...but there are other microfactories coming too. It won't be long before we have computer control chemical synthesis microfactories too. Buy some base chemical elements and create any chemical you want.

Biofactories? They're coming too. Want to resequence the DNA of the bird flu so that it's more lethal or only infects those with specific genetic markers?(say those associated with one racial classification or another) Just plug in the changes to the machine and watch the new virus strain created.

That's the eventual future that should scare the shit out of people and really we're closer there than people might think. What are you going to do? Ban machines that can build other machines(either mechanical or biological?). Ban raw materials? Or do you want to ban information instead?

At some point we have to stop banning possession(because you're not going to stop criminals by banning 'possession') and start putting serious and heavy penalties on harmful USE. Because that's the real problem with all of this...there will always be tons of legitimate uses for the equipment...at the same time those who want to till be able to use it to build very very evil things.

That is the challenge our society will face and truth be told punishment based strategies will only be marginally effective. If you want to stop the highly intelligent but mentally disturbed you have to focus and spend time and money on general mental health.
And here is a brilliant post.

...because making something 'illicit' ALWAYS reduces distribution....

Thank god our politicians(on both side of the aisle) are ****ing morons. Could you imagine how screwed we'd be if there was even one brain cell among the lot of them?

Our technology is approaching the point where you will be able to generate just about any kind of weapon remotely.

If there's anything that can be done about that, I'm at a loss.

Actually I would go so far as to say what people don't understand is that there is no bag...and there never really has been. The problem is people keep trying to make a 'bag' saying if we make this 'bag' we can put the cat back in it....the cat was never in a bag in the first place, so you're not going to be able to build one to put him back into it....

What happened to the bag? The last time I asked that was in the 70s~
