Oh Brave New World…
…that has such people in’t
A 3D printable plastic handgun is now (more or less) available.
As the linked article suggests, there is a nasty possibility of having the thing blow up in your hand if you use too-powerful ammunition…but still.
Talking Points Memo is also on the story, with a gussied up video that adds swelling music and shots of WW II bombers to the mix. They grabbed this quote (warning – do not read while eating lunch):
“I recognize that this tool might be used to harm people,” Wilson said, according to Fox News. “That’s what it is — it’s a gun. But I don’t think that’s a reason to not put it out there. I think that liberty in the end is a better interest.”
Presented without further comment, this story, also now up on TPM.
And this one.
And…hell, wait half an hour and there will be another tragedy to report. (At somewhere north of 50 gun suicides per day, that’s a reasonably non-hyperbolic time period — to say nothing of gun violence imposed on others.)
The nuts, Civil War revanchists, and simple thugs who drive gun policy in this country are a danger to themselves and everyone else. Demographics are getting them too...but not nearly fast enough.
