The Second Amendment has gotten an enormous boost over the last few weeks, thanks to a hearty debate over the reality of 3D printed firearms.

While the legal battles are still ongoing, one major win did come for the technology when a federal court asserted that the distribution of computer files that would allow a 3D printer to manufacture the necessary parts for a gun was upheld as constitutional under the First Amendment.

The left was furious, of course, believing that 3D printed guns will soon be a widespread epidemic that creates mass chaos in our country.  (This ignores the fact that these guns are basically plastic fireworks holders that can shoot only one projectile in their lifespan).

The absurdity of the left’s pushback on the issue has now been highlighted by a Florida newspaper who warned Americans about the dangers of 3D printed rubber band guns.

The dry lead up to the end of this video may serve to highlight the purported dangers of 3D printed firearms, but once you see the final product it becomes readily apparent just what a subtle piece of humor this really was.

Of course, this hasn’t slowed down any of the silly arguments being made regarding the possibility of such weapons.

On July 28, 2018, Breitbart New reported Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) warning that 3D-printed guns open the door to a “fully semiautomatic weapon.” And Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass. ) warns that we have come to a place where a 3D-print cartridge is “as deadly as a gun cartridge.”

On August 2, 2018, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) is pushing a ban on any gun that is completely plastic and, therefore, “undetectable,” even though the manufacture or possession of such guns was already made illegal by the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988.

As far as the weapon produced by The Palm Beach Post, we would suggest that interns at the paper take to wearing safety goggles and be sure to keep their rubber bands locked up.
