Cool thing makes gun laws useless?

This is possibly the coolest “toy” Ive ever seen.

Its a printer.

Its a 3D printer

Its a 3D printer that makes almost any object it has a design template for….

Its a MakerBot “Thing-O-Matic”

The daily mail has a reasonable write up on the machine, including this picture of geek lust in action…

Morton wondered if there were plans for a lady sized model any time soon....


However a little section in the write up got me thinking…

“But its creators say future models could combine plastic with metals – allowing them to make electronic gadgets at the push of a button.”

Id give it about 1 week after the metals model was introduced before the first pistols/pistol parts are available for sale. So how would gun control work after you can produce your own?

      … you’d just bury it under the cushions of the sofa, and then whimper plaintively when you can’t find it again.

    The Bikie and/or Lebanese-Muslim criminal gangs in Sydney have already started making their own machine guns.

    Luckily our government is hard at work taking guns off the rest of us, so we will be safe!
