California state Senator Kevin de Leon proposed a bill on Monday that would require anyone who plans to assemble a gun made from a 3D printer to undergo a background check, the Associated Press reported. The bill also extends to anyone buying parts of a gun to assemble at home.

The 3-D printer allows anyone to download gun designs and build it without any type of safeguard, the AP reported.

A similar California law already in place states gun owners and buyers need to undergo a background check before buying and register their weapon after its bought, according to the AP....

And how do existing laws in The people’s republic(sic) of Kalifornia prevent people from building guns from stuff bought at the local Home Despot?

And that makes it crystal clear where their loyalties lie and what their goals are. Traitors, the whole lot of them.

I do not believe I have ever ever seen a Star Trek episode where the person using a replicator had to show a registry ID card...

Yeah, I seem to have missed the episodes where proliferation of replicated phasers led to mass criminality on ship, too.

Wanna bet California state Senator Kevin de Leon is one of those dip $hits that sat on a xerox machine, duped his ass and distributed copies to everybody in homeroom.

This will be just as successful as the laws that prevent people from growing marijuana!

To bad that they don’t spend very much time on GIGANTIC, COLOSSAL problems that certainly do exist, while working feverishly on “problems” that don’t even exist yet.

Good luck with that. The plans and blueprints have been all over the web for more than a year now, and have already been downloaded by millions of people all over the world.

SuperMex De Leon is within inches of being formally indicted.

Everyone knows it.

This is a just a last grasp at relevancy before political oblivion, and prison.

OK, where are they getting this crap about a “3D rifle”? All the articles say he bought AR15 parts and make one, nothing about 3D printing.

Just making it up as they go along as usual?

You already have to go through a background check to buy a receiver.

A receiver is the firearm, under the law.
