    3D printed guns, what do you guys think? Protected by 2A? Can’t see how gun manufacturers would like this at all.

    I don't think it will ever be such a big thing that it would cut into gun sales. If I had a printed gun I would be concerned that it might blow up when I fired it. The manufacturers of quality firearms make them to pretty exacting standards.

    By the letter of the law, yes it is protected. It doesn't distinguish how a weapon is made, just the right to wield it. Can't wait to see how these are 'legally' distributed. A recipe can be downloaded on the internet and made in the home. Can't wait until cops are busting kids on the street with these untraceable guns.

    If they are ever legally distributed it will be because the big gun makers will be printing them. I wouldn't be afraid to fire one made by Browning, S&W, Colt, Glock, etc.

    I would be afraid to fire one made by some bubba who wanted to diversify from his meth lab business.

    There were blueprints put online in 2017 that were downloaded 400,000 times before being taken offline.

    Can't be right. Doesn't seem like NOLA and Chicago would be in the green according to that legend.

    This is just my thoughts and could be wrong.

    Gang members and drug dealers won't go through all that trouble for a gun cause they don't need to.
    The head cases that shoot up a place probably won't have the desire (and likely means) to go through all that trouble- which I assume it is to have access to machines that will do that.

    You can buy 3d printers of different sizes online or some stores. I wouldn't be surprised if they have them at Best Buy or Office Depot.

    So how do you go from that to a piece of metal? You can't print metal.
