Today we start out with the logical progression from printed guns: printed bullets. Actually they’re just blobs of plastic made, like the guns, on a 3-D printer and shaped like slugs to fit inside shotgun shells. But they should be enough to set the MSM and politicians on their ear again. But wait, there’s more! Click through for a video about a 3-D printing system that uses metals like titanium & aluminum that EOS (Electro Optical Systems), demonstrated at IEEE’s MDM 2013 conference. They’re not printing gun parts, but it’s only a matter of time before someone does . . .
And this just in (literally): Liberator 1.1 is available for download at http://defcad.org/forum/index.php?topic=2208.0 Get it while you can!
In other technology, Yardarm has introduced what it’s calling Safety First technology. It will allow gun owners to remotely engage or disengage the trigger safety on their firearms via an app on their cell phone. How long before the po-po want in on this so they can remotely shut down all firearms in a given area, kind of like how they can ask OnStar to kill the engine in a vehicle they’re pursuing?
Should gun manufacturers care who buys their products? The NYT sure thinks so. So what’s next, demanding that GM keep track of who buys their cars and what they’re used for to make sure that no one uses one to transport a car bomb or run down a crowd of hikers? They’re only upset because Gun Makers Saw No Role in Curbing Improper Sales.
While we’re on the topic of ludicrous leaps of logic by the lamestream media, David Whelan of The Guardian tries to turn a story about the Oklahoma tornadoes into a polemic on gun control. His poor logic is exceeded only by his poor taste.
Know any gun manufacturers looking for a new home? Utah wants them. Sen. Howard Stephenson plans to introduce a bill in their next legislative session to reduce restrictions on gun manufacturing and eliminate sales tax on machinery and parts used to make firearms.
Meanwhile in the Centennial State, “a handful of Democratic state lawmakers in Colorado face recall petition efforts in what looks to be the first wave of fallout over legislative votes to limit gun rights.” Blowback can be a bitch.
Skokie, Illinois police Sergeant Timothy Gramins tells why he carries 145 rounds of ammo with him every day – some of it in “high capacity” magazines. If a master firearms instructor and police sniper needs that kind of firepower to protect himself, what does it say for limiting ordinary citizens to 10 or fewer rounds?
And finally, the New Braunfels (TX) Police Department wants to know if you’ve seen the “trailer-load of military grade equipment and ammunition [that] was recently stolen from a New Braunfels storage unit facility. The trailer was full of military uniforms, AR-15 magazines, various ammunition, military grade body armor, and a compound bow, among other items totaling nearly 4-thousand dollars in stolen equipment (including the trailer).” We’re guessing that ammo may be long gone, but if you’ve seen any of it, you can call them at (830) 221-4100 or (830) 620-TIPS.
