Eventually, some deranged shooter will spur shoddily written gun control that makes no sense.
Nah, California style laws will happen as a response. Meanwhile people like Wildcat, but more so people like ed will just buy CNC milling machines and 3D printers and make all their guns at home
An interesting thought: If the process becomes efficient enough, could a person subvert possession laws by keeping it in raw material form and 3-D printing themselves up a bunch of them if the occasion arose? Wouldn't do you much good in an intruder situation, but in that theoretical "make it really difficult for jackbooted thugs" way there's presumably some lead time.
That, by the way, is where I stand on the whole idea that firearms for defense against tyranny is bullshit because the government has drones and tanks and such. While there is some truth to that, I'd bet a bunch of people with illegal weapons could be a nasty thorn in the side even if outright revolution is unlikely. I try not to go with that argument when debating the gun issue.
