What kind of idiot goes and does something like that? Obviously not someone with a shred of humanity. My next question is, when in 10, 15, or 20 years, these become a household item, what are we going to do to protect our children from printing 'fun' toys? As had been noticed, those will be downloadable. Downloadable objects? Let's think of a way to keep technology working for us, and stop making more weapons.

Pose with that gun, and keep telling yourself that the government is keeping you down. The government, and people. People with common sense. People with common sense who are asking "what is wrong with you, you lunatic".
