Default Make your own AR Legally Video

I have a feeling there will end up being alot of this going IF a gun ban happens. People will start making their own. We've already seen the 3D printer at work. With today's technology in computers and CNC lathes and mills, there will be plenty of people who will have the ability to make their own.

Honestly, it's probably not cost effective, but make them illegal, now the cost becomes a secondary issue. I still say it's better to keep them legal and at least then the government knows the Origin and the first buyer of the weapon. I have a feeling we're going to get to see some good talent at work if AR's and AK's are banned.

The other issue, is that fact everyone will THINK they are talented enough to build such an item from scratch, but not done properly, not put through the proper testing and then we will start seeing people getting killed over improper manufacturing and accidents.

Agreed, once its black market stuff ( Gunsmithing without proper traiming or knowledge ) basically you get into all kinds of nonsense. They wanna ban our guns but thats not gonna happen, we cant even control our border to the south. Let alone the number of guns per household..This is from 2004 so 9 years ago

Results: 38% of households and 26% of individuals reported owning at least one firearm. This corresponds to 42 million US households with firearms, and 57 million adult gun owners. 64% of gun owners or 16% of American adults reported owning at least one handgun. Long guns represent 60% of the privately held gun stock. Almost half (48%) of all individual gun owners reported owning ⩾4 firearms. Men more often reported firearm ownership, with 45% stating that they personally owned at least one firearm, compared with 11% for women.

Really makes me wish I had taken machine shop in Vocational School rather then drafting.

That's funny. I say the same thing all the time.

What do you design now? I'm designing food packaging machinery/automation.

Nothing I've never used it unfortunately. Ended up working in law enforcement. I don't remember crap about drafting, a shame really.

I did the opposite. Law enforcement first then designing.

How all you need is to know how to program CNC machine.

Metal working machines aren't cheap either. This is why all the rage over the new plastic copy machines.,and home PC.
