Should anyone be legally allowed to make a firearm on their own? This is the underlying debate at the moment and it centers around the 3D printing of guns made of plastic, but very useable, very deadly and very untraceable since they have no serial number nor is there any background check.

After first receiving permission from the government to post instructions for printing 3D guns, a federal judge blocked such posting.

Trump was quoted as saying he would look into the 3D printed guns. The NRA has already come out against any gun that is untraceable and now it seems the President Trump is siding with the NRA against the 3D printed untraceable guns.

(Spero Forum) – Trump administration joined with the National Rifle Association in support of an existing law that they say makes owning or making homemade plastic guns illegal. On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted that allowing plastic guns, some of which can be made with 3D printing technology, “doesn’t seem to make much sense!”

Onboard Air Force One, presidential spokesman Hogan Gidley, “The President is committed to the safety and security of all American; he considers this his highest responsibility.” He added, “In the United States, it’s currently illegal to own or make a wholly plastic gun of any kind, including those made on a 3D printer.” Continuing, Gidley said that the administration still supports a nearly three-decade-old law that covers the practice of manufacturing undetectable firearms, “and will continue to look at all options available to us to do what is necessary to protect Americans while also supporting the First and Second Amendments.”

President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday, “I am looking into 3-D Plastic Guns being sold to the public. Already spoke to NRA, doesn’t seem to make much sense!” Also on Tuesday, NRA spokesman Chris W. Cox released a statement, saying, “Regardless of what a person may be able to publish on the Internet, undetectable plastic guns have been illegal for 30 years.” Cox added, “Federal law passed in 1988, crafted with the NRA’s support, makes it unlawful to manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer, or receive an undetectable firearm.” …

There are many other deadly things that someone can build at home that are also untraceable, but guns are a different story. It’s not as much about the guns as it that they are guns. You can build an untraceable car at home and it’s legal and you can kill with that car, but no one cares about cars as much as they care about stopping any and all guns.
