21 May

President Obama crisscrossed the nation on the deathbeds of 21 tots, campaigning for gun reform. Shells flew off the shelves. Gun stocks shot up through the roof. Newtown families caught up their grief, were flown on Air Force One. And then the unthinkable happened. Downloads for 3D Printed Liberator Gun Reach 100,000 catching Democrat gun grab supporters off guard. Citizens gun rights were being grabbed while undetectable gun parts were being printed- at home.

Blueprints of Liberator, Defense Distributed’s 3D printed plastic gun was downloaded over 100,000 times since it went online with most of the downloads in the US then Spain, Brazil, Germany and the UK. New York congressmen Steve Israel and Chuck Schumer aimed their legislation at adding a 3D-printing provision to the US Undetectable Firearms Act. The US Undetectable Firearms Act requires all guns to be detectable.

Two British journalists had taken a 3D gun onto the London-Paris Eurostar train- undetected- during weekend rush hour, unchallenged. The gun was capable of firing live rounds. Less than 36 hours after reporters, Simon Murphy and Russell Myers bought a 3D Systems’ CubeX 3D printer from online, they printed out the 15 components of the plastic gun. The firing pin, too small to be detected by metal detectors, was bought from a local hardware. It took a few minutes for the journalists to assemble the DIY gun- undetectable in some amounts, just as metal joints can be, too.

The Newtown 21 were shot by a rapid firing weapon that could be seen. Legislators did not see undetectable guns coming.

So much for legislation outdated before its time.
