Duh! Plastic bullets and plastic primers and plastic gun powder. Those gun people are insidious.

For as long as they're all up in arms about this, they won't be looking at anything of real consequence. So good on 'em for getting all worked up over what amounts be be pretty much nothing. Added bonus is that it gets added to the ever-growing list of "if this gets through, the streets will be running over with blood" predictions that never come true.

One day, we should compile a list of all the things that never came to be.

Maybe we should rile 'em up again in a few weeks with online plans for undetectable 3D printed plastic knives. ;-)

There are ceramic knives that don't contain any metal.

Better effort just printing the lower for an AR, funny nobody has mentioned this!

This whole controversy has little to do with the 2nd amendment and everything to do with the 1st. Leftist hate having a free people to rule over.

The issue here isn't just about printing plastic Guns. Defense Distributed has an inexpensive Milling Machine and Jig (and downloadable CNC code to finish 80% lowers. I think there is code online to print out a plastic AR Lower. If it isn't out there yet, Selectfire will become available for anyone who has PVC pipe and a shovel. This a real fear for the left that the American people will develope the ability to defend themselves against oppressors.
