Hold the presses! Hold the presses!

The FGC-9 the first 3d printed gun to use no commercial gun parts is now released to the public. Read below for more details.

Below is a report by ARES. It is a pretty good read on the trends of improvised arms.

This is only the beginning.

Sorry for the late reply. I can't really find much.

The only other article on this subject I have found was in the LA times. LA times is still bias in many ways. There doesn't seem to be any truly objective source.

Several versions of YouTube's comment system (and even more notably when YouTube had no comment system and was incorrectly pretended to be part of Google+ instead) have simply not shown all comments.  Wether or not they are actually gone is another matter.  This is definitely algorithmic and not manual, and definitely not immediate, as I have observed many instances where replies were visible to comments that were not.
I don't think that's the case with my Comment on Jimmy Kimmel tho. I have commented on his video on the El Paso Shooting and it had the same result. Aside from the algorithm, Youtube channels can manually remove comments or premoderate them. So this is a sign that they are cowards and runners of echo chambers

And this happened just right after I posted the comment. So this is likely deliberate shadow banning, pre-moderation, or just outright removal.

Here is another interesting development.

Some would consider this a milestone in the fight against gun control and 3d printing capabilities.
A 3d printed 9mm carbine that is designed to circumvent EU style gun laws, which regulates the pressure bearing parts, aka the toughest parts of the firearm to machine.

The group that has created this firearm has also created a relatively simply way to make a rifled barrel via electro-chemical machining. This is quite revolutionary, because barrels are one of the most time consuming and challenging part of a firearm to produce through traditional means.

It is an interesting read. Also, she was a bitch. It's kinda funny that she railed on "Orientals" and "Indians" considering orientals (assuming she's referring to East Asians) and Indians are some of the most economically successful people in the US.

I would be careful when siting NYT tho. They are a very slanted source themselves.

Back again with more breaking news. There is now a 12 gauge revolving pump shotgun combining metal and 3d printed parts. This is getting interesting.

The designer seemed to have taken some inspiration from the Armsel_Striker shotgun. See the resemblance?

When watching Youtube videos on the subject, has anyone ever taken screenshots of their comments mysteriously disappearing when they log out? I have taken quite a few for a while now.

Here is an example. This is my comment I made on an episode of the Jimmy Kimmel Show covering the Las Vegas Shooting. I can see it when I am logged in, but not not when I am logged out.

Yes, it was admittedly a generalization, that doesn't apply either to the Balkans, or the Chzech Republic and Hungary.

You got that right. Speaking of the United Kingdom.

Apparently the NCA (UK's FBI) has discovered a machine shop that was producing, what appears to be, somewhat rough copies of FN/Browning 1922 handguns, which is a bigger variant of the FN_Model_1910. In the video, they say this is the first time they have seen something like this. But assure you this is not gonna be the last.

A Clear example of the proliferation of technology. I won't be surprised if within the next 5-10 years we start seeing 9mm handguns being produced.

Quite surprising to see it in Canada--if only because, restrictive by US standards as they are, firearms are still easier to get than in Europe.

Then again, I suppose any restriction creates incentive for this.

Canada's laws are restrictive in some ways, but they are also less stringent than the US in other ways. For Example: You can buy short-barreled shotguns more easily in Canada than the US, which require ATF approval and a 200 dollar tax. One of the articles I posted, did say that Montreal is home of Canada's gun registration scheme and has the strictest laws in North America so I guess that could be an incentive. Another one could be demand for fully-automatic weapons (if these really are full-auto, because the articles don't really go into detail).

Also, I think we are seeing this because of the proliferation of technology. 20 or 30 years ago computer aided machine tools were limited to large scale industrial operations And now they could be had for less than 3 grand in some cases. I think this is only the beginning of what is to come.

Speaking of Europe, it really depends on your location. Guns are more readily available in Serbia than the United Kingdom, for example. In fact in much of the former Yugoslavia there are still many weapons leftover from the wars during the 1990s. Many of them were hidden away by private collectors, people who thought it would not be wise to turn in their weapons in case another conflict breaks out, or sold to criminal groups who want to make quick buck.

General Discussion / Venezuela Is Not Real Socialism Rebuttals

Venezuela is one of the biggest socialist disasters in modern history. And Socialists are now back tracking and claiming that it was not  has.
Here are some sources you can use to counter these weasels.

This is from Bernie Sanders own website. (Link Bellow)

At the very last sentence.

These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who's the banana republic now?

Socialist celebrities such as Michael Moore praised it.

General Discussion / Another Prohibition

I have heard people online advocating for the complete prohibition of porn. Did these people learn nothing from prohibition of alcohol and drugs?! After two massive failures, this time they have absolutely no excuse.

BTW You guys ever watched his wonder woman review?

I seem to have problem linking YouTube videos

It is obvious that he's talking out of his ass and he didn't even watch the movie. It is also the perfect example of apophenia and pareidolia.

I could do an almost complete point by point refutation of it

And people say "Hurr-durr, why don't we Europeans have problems with guns?"

If you compare the total number of mass shootings in the European Union (including the Euro zone) and the United States it's really not as bad as the media makes it out to be. The EU had around 24-25 (I think) while the US had around 32-33 ( I think). Considering the US has 2.17 more landmass the difference is not that huge.

The EU/USA comparison is also more accurate compared to one individual country in Europe because the EU structure is very similar to the US under the Articles of Confederation, with some aspects of pre-civil war constitutional era. All they really need is central army and they will look quiet similar to pre-civil war, constitutional era, USA.

So to all you arrogant and elitist snobs across the Atlantic. I have only one response for you

Anyway: heck, we don't even need expensive or posh mills. You remember the ones in Pakistan and India, right? their tools in total can't possibly exceed 1,000 dollars: nearly everything is done by hand, yet they, per man, turn out dozens of pistols, shotguns, and rifles every year--all destined for the black market.

CNC and better tech are merely luxuries. During alcohol prohibition there were illegal booze production. They ranged widely in terms of sophistication. Some were made in little more than bathtubs, while others were produced to high standards in hidden but very well equipped distilleries similar with meth today. And like I said some previous posts, metal 3d printing seems to advancing very quickly. It is only a matter of time. BTW Seeing how relatively sophisticated this piece is I am a little surprised that the underground builders didn't try to build something a little more potent like select-fire, short-barreled rifles.
