So does this mean he commited a crime? Dont you need a Licence to manufature? Are the Feds going to get him?

3D printers OMG think of the Children!!!!!!

No. You do not need a license to manufacture. Certain things, yes. Most firearms and ammunition, no.

Some of the components of an AR-15 are already plastic anyway. I don't see what the big deal is. They're already readily available and cheap enough.

For personal use, no you don't need a license to manufacture. If you intend to sell you need an 07 FFL.

Not sure if it would print the size of an AR15 receiver though.

If you guys are really interested in making AR15's, check out 80% AR15 receivers.

Of course. The same goes for manufacturing ammunition with the intent to sell. The same also goes for buying firearms with the intent to sell.

I wish it was. the 1968 GCA hasn't done anyone a lick of good.

Ensuring a background check is done is fine with me. If I have to do one to buy a gun at my local shop then ordering mail order should require one too.

I can sell a longarm to another PA resident over the internet and ship it directly to his door.
So, in certain circumstances, this asshat is correct although it is not illegal as he would be seeming to suggest.

The vast majority of the time it's people buying from companies in other states. Yes private sales in state happen but it's a small percentage overall.

Another article about it: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/have-you...le-to-all/

Quote:With 3D printers being so detailed that they’ve already been welcomed with open arms by the medical community for a variety of applications — it helped give this woman a new jaw and this little girl “magic arms” – the gun community is taking an interest as well.

In fact, a Texas-based group called Defense Distributed has begun a project that could make 3D printable designs for firearms available to anyone — anyone who had the use of a 3-D printer that is.
