3D Printed Guns (Documentary Trailer)

3D Printed Guns (Documentary Trailer)


[MUSIC PLAYING] People say, where do you think
your project fits within this greater discussion about
gun control? [MUSIC PLAYING] If we could print a gun, other
people could do this. Like what if we gave it away,
open source style? What would that mean? Gun control, for us,
is a fantasy. In a way that like people say,
you’re being unrealistic about printing a gun. I think it’s more unrealistic
now, especially going forward, to think you could ever control
this technology. The only things recognized and
promulgated in this culture are irreversible. To have a symbolic gift like the
printable gun does so much ideological damage and violence
to these ideas. Simply that, like, it
can’t be ignored. [GUN SHOT] [GUN SHOT] [GUN SHOT] [GUN SHOT]

    Oh man, this is gonna make the whole gun issue so much more interesting. Prohibiting alcohol, and you will get home brewed alcohol; prohibiting weed, and you will get home grown weed; prohibiting guns, and you will get something like this. If people really want something, they will get very creative to get it, especially they are prohibited from getting it. Black market/home brew. Can't wait for the whole thing to come out.

    well it is a big deal now because there is a huge amount of media/public attention on the gun control debate, and everyone wants to throw in their 2 cents. Home brewing meth, bomb and many other dangerous things are easy and nothing new too (check out the anarchist's cookbook), but they don't get much exposure, so they aren't such a big deal even thought they are easily home brewed. This is the power of the media.

    3D printing tech is going to make mental health extremely important.Owning a powerful 3d printer comes with great responsibility. The last thing you want is someone who's mentally unstable with a 3D printer because s/he can be very creative and motivated. You can't stop the progress and the ownership of powerful 3d printer, but you can help the owners to be more mentally stable. 3D printer that prints metal is already on the way, time to actually get serious about mental health.

    Why do you make it sound like Europe is hardcore nation? The only problem we would have is getting lost cause we're tourists. Thats just how it is, you'd have the same problem if you visited America. You only know about America's Stereotype but there's many different cultures in the US so we're not totally oblivious to different nations. You see us as Douche bags but you're the one calling us a douchebag, we're only trying to defend our pride. We aren't a nation who likes to get trampled on.

    That just gets you a sintered metal barrel, which is subpar at best for a functional barrel.
    The drama over this technology on both sides is retarded, with the same exact CAD files you can go to a CNC mill, which have existed for a couple decades, and make a firearm vastly superior to any 3D printer we'll have for years.

If you were referring to World War I, then you were mistaken. Germany was only an active member in WWI because they had to back up the Austria/Hungary when they wanted to retaliated for the assassination of Duke Ferdinand. So now that it's all cleared up.

    "what about the old sheriff's law, if you go into town, you have to leave the guns at the door. forgot about that?"

    He has not. He doesn't advocate that everyone should have guns either. What he does argue is that individuals should not allow themselves to be controlled by governments to the degree many governments want. But on their own private property of course people are allowed to set whatever rules they want. Including demanding that guests leave their weapons at the door.

    Ultimately, he views these guns as being a blow against totalitarian ideas that should be rejected because they constitute intolerable violations of personal integrity and freedom in his opinion. Your argument about skitzos could be responded to by saying that we should lock people up if we believe them acting as free members of society constitutes a danger. Otherwise we should trust them as free citizens.

    the reason there is a second amendment in our constitution is to make sure our government does not grow too powerful. we don't have a second amendment just so we can go shoot up a school but to protect against a tyrannical government.

    Hey I believe your on the path of freemen of the 20th century.
    Governments who charge for registration and mandate to register your absolute property should be living in communist societies, but that's not the case..
    However, the realism we live today is that if "registered" voters (not a right anymore?) are realizing that they're natural rights have been violated since birth through even your glorious days of getting your "drivers license" which is a commercial term. Traveling in your automobile would be what the majority of the United States people are doing. Driving implies your getting paid: example: truck driver, taxi driver, pizza delivery driver, etc.
    Before I go off topic I just want to make clear one thing. How can someone give consent on documents which they cannot comprehend fully? And why is mandatory?
    If you've ever thought to yourself; why the hell do I have to pay a corporation a fee to turn my right to travel into a commercial term and forfeiting my rights into a privilege?
    Why do I need to register my gun, automobile, my dog, etc.? (Insert corporate answer) Now analyze the fact that the U.S. Constitution (not the District of Columbia -UNITED STATES) states your rights as the right to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness. Now understand that absolute property is like you bicycle, underwear, firearms, automobile, etc. As a natural born native why do YOU need to submit to this corporate law/entity? It's definitely in my opinion another monopoly.
    By having a commercial ID commercial Drivers license you are now a subject to these statues. Which are not law, but give the "force" of law.
    I always felt that if the government were to get out of control, now the common "citizen" cannot protect themselves. But this 3D printer definitely put them in check. Every home now can have a legal fire arm (it is your right to have). It's Clicks away, if the government gets outta hand and continues to violate our rights, natural rights. The people are starting to become more aware.
    And Common law is the law of Free men and women.

    Let me give another scenario.
    "Cops" law enforcement who do not have photo identification can more than likely not be who they claim to be.
    If a uniform breaks into your home (then your two dogs react and one gets shot), trespasses your property, or a body trespass and you now have a safe room with a gun as a last resort. Hopefully cameras on your property too.
    Or you can get up, defend yourself at that moment that your family's life is threatened with a reliable 3D gun and hold your ground on your property. As a last resort shoot to PROTECT.

    This is beyond scary…who needs to have a gun in the first place?…and all those who boast about their 2nd amendment rights and are consumed by gun-rights issues are obviously motivated by fears and false conspiracies… like those spineless Republicans who stand by the pathological liar that holds the office of President because they don't want to lose the NRA monies in the upcoming elections or they will run their campaigns by the fear that Democrats are against their second amendment rights which is so far from the truth. Republicans think that planting fear in those less-educated minds of their base will win them elections…because that is exactly how Trump won his election. Just like super-charging hatred against immigrants and claiming there is a major immigration issue, when people crossing the border during Obama's reign actually was on the decline…but again, the ill-informed who follow Trump blindly without educating themselves will probably be the first fools to try to make a 3D gun…sad.
    Real men are not judged by the size of their gun collection…but their common sense to know that this is all bullshit, and more guns are NOT a solution to anything… they hide behind their supposed patriotism and wave their flag, but it is all a farce. The NRA should be banned after their unpatriotic acts colluding with Russia to help rig this past election and which was a direct attack upon our very own Democracy…what a shame.
    I am guessing that the last book that most gun advocates and Trump supporters read is the "Cat in the Hat'…honestly even doubt if Trump could read that book….far too many pages for our POTUS = #Make Autocrats Great Again".

    This is dangerous if not regulated by age and mental conditions. If left in the wrong hands we could see new crimes if nothing is done about this.
