      SB 3743 will remover our access to CNC Machines and 3D Printers

      I've thought long and hard about posting this here, and decided that I would go ahead.

       

      This is not about guns, though the article addresses them.  It is about politicians trying to accomplish something when know not what they do.

       

      If this bill becomes law, and it might, if things go a certain way, we will lose our CNC machines, 3D printers, drill presses, milling machines, even power/hand drills and files, because they might be used by someone in another hobby.

       

      Write to your politicians to kill this monstrosity.

      Given that the ultimate firearm manufacturing machine is the mind ...

      This means even a lathe will be involved.

      When I was in High school in 1960, a student made a zip gun in the shop class.  It worked!!

       

      If someone really wants to do something illegal, a law will not stop them.

      about fifty years ago i read in an arms-magazine about afghanistan's village smiths, producing working copies of Lee-Enfield rifles on stone anvils and with simplest handtools of their own design.

      prooving, that if there is a need or desire, there is a way too.

       

      tool-banning is the old political principle: castigate the law abiding citizens, if you can't catch the criminals.

      They keep trying, not knowing, or caring, about the unintended consequences of their actions.  "We must stop those model train hobbyists, they are a danger to the collective."

      This thread is about losing our ability to create our scratch built models, nothing else.  Dont go there.

      if things go a certain way, we will lose our

      Interesting situation - thanks for shedding light on it. However, the Bill appears to allow you to become a "licensed manufacturer" which I am sure will get qualified if this gets any further. I'm sure the NRA will cry "foul".

      It reminds me of the issue of adding identifiers to gunpowder, so that you could trace where the powder came from after the criminal had committed a crime. Maybe our 3D plastic will need to have an identifier in it, so we can cheerfully continue to print our train parts!
