While there are still some details to sort out, it’s pretty clear that making weapons at home using 3-D printers from commonly available materials is going to become much more commonplace in the near future. In fact, as 3-D printing technology matures, materials feedstock improves, and designs for weapons proliferate, we might soon see the day when nearly everyone will be able to print the weapons of their choice in the numbers they desire, all within the privacy of their own homes.

[When even Popular Science is admitting the obvious we all see, it makes me ponder how much longer our opponents will remain in denial. Every once in a while we see glimmers of anger.
I will say this right now though. There will be no bargaining. We will not negotiate with those who would deprive us our rights. Their attitude towards us has been scorched earth, if only by piece meal. It has been us who have compromised historically, no more. It is time to sweep these people into the dust bin of history with the likes of other bigots throughout history. -B]
Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. 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.
