The Futility of Gun Control…

So lately there has been lots of talk of printed firearms.  What we forget is that working with metal overall isn’t the most difficult of tasks.

It appears that someone took the blade of a spade and made himself an AK Receiver.

Honestly I don’t understand how people can think that any particular item can be “banned” from possession.  Man kind is a tool maker and he can figure out how to make the tools for himself if he cannot purchase them.  Once the cat is out of the bag, it’s out of the bag.  No matter how hard you try, it isn’t going back.  Case in point, working firearms found in prison.  If that doesn’t indicate your efforts will be futile, you need mental help.  The bottom line is people will make weapons, period, end of discussion. 

Now the question is, why are people attempting to keep the honest and law abiding from obtaining them?

This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

    We really know we’ve won when building an AK like this is an acceptable, and standard, high-school metal shop project.

    My dad was a master machinist and millwright (and also a fair welder and blacksmith); he thought the idea of banning guns or parts to be hilarious, and claimed any decent machinist could pump out machine guns with just home tools.

    That’s actually a fairly decent AK, look at the receiver, thick, look at the barrel, bull barrel AK anyone? Chechens built worse and those worked too!

    I’ve heard the expression “calling a spade a spade,” but it looks like sometimes a spade can also be called an AK-47. Cool.
