BAM! You MUST Read This Excellent Thread On The 3D Gun Hysteria

Hannah Bleau

Everyone is currently freaking out over 3D guns.

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

Trump’s even jumping into the fray.

If you’re confused by all of this, please read this thread from The Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski. He explains what’s going down in a convenient and digestible way.

I’ll be interested to see what they have to say too. There’s just so much misinformation floating around. And, uh, The New York Post isn’t really helping.

Suuuuure. That’s an “assault rifle.” LOL.

Anyway, I really love how Ben Shapiro summed this up.

Trump himself talks about 3D plastic guns “being sold to the public.” But any person or business who engages in the sale of firearms must already be licensed. And a person who buys a firearm from a licensed firearm dealer has to pass a federal background check.

And 3D guns are notoriously unreliable — they break down easily, they’re extraordinarily expensive to produce (the printers themselves run up to $100,000) and they aren’t nearly as accurate as manufactured weapons as a general rule.

In other words, half of what you’re hearing just isn’t so. We’re not going to see people everywhere casually building “undetectable” 3D guns. That’s simply irresponsible to say.
