Another reason gattaca was a great movie.
@KristindWhere is the 3d ar15? there's only 2 videos in this thread. I didn't see this weapon in either of them.
I guess the action wasn't in automatic mode. It was single shot. What I wanted to address was that you said a rifle had too many parts and would melt. I wanted to show you that in fact they do have a rifle that shot 30 bullets and the weapon didn't melt down. With technology sailing this far I 'd bet automatic is not far off. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-i-Ek-lzGnrs/UUI7SXUDQJI/AAAAAAAACPo/4TVYQCXICjE/s1600/Ar15_upper.gif Only one part out of 200 was printed. there are so many things to overcome.I believe the lower receiver is 67. 63 looks like a pin. the part they printed is the simplest of the gun.The liberator barrel broke after 1 shot of one of the smallest callibers. It's fractured enough on the second shot that he retired the gun. there's no way your going to get multiple fires out of a larger caliber bullet without melting, warping, or breaking the barrel unless major changes are made. That's only one problem of many. the liberators only 15 pieces and is more of a cannon.I think it's even muzzle loaded. a rifle would use a magazine and automatically cycle each round in after being fired. If anything the liberator is safer. I'd rather have a crazy on an airplane with an unreliable gun that fires once or twice.You can't hijack an airplane with one bullet. there's 200 people that are going to bumrush you the second you fire. Zero terror if you spend more than 30 seconds thinking about the situation.
I'm having browser problems ignore this post
Actually it just seems like groups were singled out for their political views. Superpacs are just as abundant for either left or right politically. I wouldn't mind that 100% of all superpacs get a special review. But unless that is done equally then it would not be right. I thought they were picked by having the word tea party or patriot. Any group in politics related to money needs to be watched, picking a side or picking groups that have nothing to do with politics based on a title is just stupid. Superpacs especially regardless of affiliation.I'm just curious if they were all political groups singled out or only a few of the 75. Anyone could use the word patriot.maybe there's a patriot cupcake shop or something.Doesnt change anything but I'm just curious if this is only political groups.
Sounds like groups that are known for being shady with money are being looked at more closely for not wanting to pay taxes with said money.Were these superpacs by any chance? Or groups completely unassociated with politics? the IRS needs to look at all of them not just tea party ones. any group related to politics.
If I'm not mistaken I read somewhere that by making it available for people outside the US he broke some kind of arms trade act thingamagjing, so basically they took down a site that broke the law. If you ship out a weapon in pieces to one guy, you're still shipping out a weapon since he already have all the parts. Shame they were too late to stop him. I haven't heard about that, i know the DoD sent him a cease and desist and he took the liberator blueprints down by Thursday.
Technology goes sailing down the road...http://youtu.be/SZRUpmMIQy8This is 24 minutes long but it is harrowing. http://youtu.be/DconsfGsXyAThey have 3d automatic machine guns...now. And the technology is getting only better. Where was the machine gun in that video? I kept waiting but I didn't see one... and machine guns are illegal unless your willing to pay out the ass for them and file lots of paperwork was the atf. thousands of dollars per gun. People who pay that don't go out and shoot people.If there were automatic weapons made of plastic it would be on the news and not the gun firing one shot. both videos had semi autos not autos. neither were 3d printed.
It fires once if your lucky. it's a small caliber round. I don't have a problem with it.I'd rather go out and buy 6 guns then spend then 3000$ on a printer to make one.It's not like it's new or hasn't been thought of before. People like to over react, and really who owns a 3d printer? Theres still so much to be done there to make them worthwhile.Though it's just another example of how revolutionary 3d printers are and how they will affect the world.Getting closer to post scarcity. And you couldnt make a rifle with it, you'd need too many parts that would break and firing large caliber rounds in quick succession would melt plastic. That's just silly. Rifles are less dangerous than handguns anyway. That's why hand guns kill more than rifles. small conceable and cheap wins the day. The liberator messed up after 1 shot and the barrel broke after two shots, if you tried to do anything bigger your likely to hurt yourself before your going to hurt anyone. The government had every right to take it down, the guys a self proclaimed anarchist and is offering an unreliable uncertified product.Guns are supposed to be tested, checked, approved. you can't do that on a printer. It's like a car, you can't just build your own and sell it to someone, it has to meet certain standards and pass collison and safety tests.
