It's probably Disk Cheney's weapon of choice.

That's very cool, but won't work for printing guns. The parts it makes are too small, and it only works with relatively soft, low melt temp, PLA plastics that won't stand up to even the lowly 380 that was used in the first printed gun.

Agreed, this has far more to do with government being afraid of the people and grasping for control. It's all about government exercising power over the people. They really don't seem to grasp that information like this can't be controlled, especially not once someone puts it on the Internet.

Granted, I did pull out the cheapest 3D printer I could find.

However, this one only cost $2,500 and it is capable of printing an object as large as 1,070 cu. in., which is plenty large enough to print lowers or magazines.
