What do people think the consequences of the FGC-9 and the advent of 3D printed guns and weapons more broadly will be?

How will this affect revolutionary as well as reactionary violence? Will be see a rise in paramilitary organisations on the left capable of enforcing political demands, or is this just a going to lead to more fascist lone wolf attacks.

This. With enough people and resources, insurgent groups could just fabricate actual firearms. Look into the arms trade in the Philippines for inspiration.

okay, why not still use 3d printing?
3d printing isn't just about making the end-use parts. It's machinery that gets you sub-millimeter precision for things like production processes as well for maybe, what, $400, all said and done with an MSLA printer? And you don't need a very big group working them.
I don't think trying to make all-plastic meme guns is worth it, but compared to trying to repeatedly get jigs and templates and the like right by hand-use it's much easier.
source: using them for factory production already.

 No.1753

>>1707
You can make sturdy mostly plastic guns with the right filament or print the housing and cnc out a firing mechanism from a block of steel or aluminum and drill out a barrel blank or use electrolysis on a stainless steel or moly steel rod. Not to mention using a 3d printer for stuff like casting. The fact you can build an infinitely scalable factory using a few small metal machine parts and waste plastic to make filament to print another 3d printer is a huge asset.

 No.1754

>>1753
I would honestly prefer an MSLA printer for a few key things. They can absolutely be more accurate and homogenous. They are, however, an enormous pain in the ass.
Not saying you can't do 3d printed for a lot of parts on a gun, but why would you do that over using it for only the awkward parts that are hard to make with hardware store parts that will do better?

 No.1758

>>1754
I think some improvised hardware store parts are not specialized and may be inefficiently shaped and have lesser qualities to 3d printed parts. That might be bulky or unnecessarily heavy. Which ones are you referring to though?
Also I am a different anon then the other guy you were talking to.
One thing I am interesed in is molding plastic like is done for polymer rifle furniture. I wonder if there are some plastic alternatives to 3d printing that have superior qualities and are DIY-able. I'd imagine if you mold any parts than you can make the molds using a 3d printer and various DIY-able materials

Biden has proposed measures to restrict home built firearms. I personally find this concerning, as the ability to produce firearms would be a boon to any communist militia or similar group. Yes, I know there are other ways to produce firearms and with enough people and money, an organized militia could do it legally even if such a ban passes by getting a license to manufacture firearms, or by forging receivers themselves.

All that being said, the ban seems like a nothingburger: the proposed restrictions, as far as I know, would only ban "build and shoot" kits that come with all the parts needed. Pawn shops and gun stores would also be required to serialize unserialized guns that are sold to them. So basically there is not going to be an outright ban on 80% receivers, you would just have to buy the parts separately. Thoughts?

Such a proposal doesn't sound like an issue. The build your own gun kits would mainly be just be used by Neo Nazis, gang members and school shooter incels.

hello Agent Kochinski
>>1676
I've bought parts separately before. The part kits referred to in the bill are ones that include the 80% lower, not just miscellaneous parts kits. For example, I bought an 80% lower and a jig, then the upper receiver and barrel, then a small parts kit, then a buffer tube and spring. It was actually cheaper than buying a complete build kit, and would still, to my knowledge, be legal with the proposed reforms.

The thing about nukes is you destroy everything in one indirect rough area hit. Fuck you don't even need to hit a target just airbust it. Think of how much work goes into the hyper-sonic cruise missiles to fire, control, directly precisely hit a single building.
The cities that are "ruined" have taken thousands of artillery shells, rockets, drones, jet airstrikes, chopper attacks, cruise missiles, mortars, shoulder fired rockets, tanks, grenades, MLRS strikes to just turn some buildings into rubble.

With a nuke, you just land a hit roughly around the area and everything is destroyed. Water, sanitation, food, farming, houses, apartments, energy, government buildings, television, hospitols, stores, pretty much everything is absolutely fucking burned to shit, and then covered with lots of nuclear fallout continuing to burn everything for years. the air is unbreathable, water undrinkable.
There is no winning for any nation that gets into a nuclear war. All heavily armed nuclear superpowers have emergency doomsday contingency plans so even if a first strike is effective against them, they have enough firepower hidden to launch retaliatory strikes from submarines, even nuclear torpedoes, possibly shipping containers smuggled into ports with nukes inside of them. Even without the nukes they have enough radiological materials to wage a horrific dirty bomb war with radioactive materials in conventional weapons.

There is no winning with nuclear war. It would destroy all nations involved, and in the case with Israel, they vow to use a Sampson option to destroy every city they can in the entire middle east and take them all down with them.

Mutually Assured Destruction was supposed to be a deterrent, not a scenario to enact.

A reminder that cheap cnc, cutting, welding, and 3d printing lasers can be used to instantly and irrevocably blind people at 1000s of feet.

If you combine frequencies it becomes extremely difficult to block with convention eyeprotection.

Combined with a firearm this allows a 1-2 knockout punch, as the blinding weapon will Temporarily dispell adrenaline from the target, allowing the firearm to do more damage

Today, the United States is among a number of nations working to develop and field advanced directed energy weapons, or lasers, for a number of military applications.

Near the end of the Cold War, the Soviet Union began experimenting with the idea of fielding a laser-equipped tank that could blind the targeting systems of inbound ballistic missiles or vehicles. Ultimately, two prototypes of the laser-armed 1К17 Сжатие, translated to “Compression,” were built, though they weren’t complete until the Soviet Union fell and was replaced by the new government of the Russian Federation.

Today, the United States is among a number of nations working to develop and field advanced directed energy weapons, or lasers, for a number of military applications. The U.S. Air Force recently announced its intentions to begin fielding lasers on their fighter platforms as soon as 2025, and the U.S. Navy began testing its latest laser, the MK 2 MOD 0, aboard the USS Portland in May of this year. But decades before these programs came to light, the Soviet Union was already exploring the idea of using lasers as a means of missile defense.

The Soviet strategy wasn’t to use these lasers to destroy incoming missiles like the applications in development today intend to. Instead, the Soviet laser tank aimed to blind or burn out the electro-optical sensors missiles used to find their targets. Once blinded or damaged, a missile would miss its intended target, whether that was the 1K17 or other nearby assets. Other planned applications included using the laser apparatus to blind heavy vehicles like tanks, making it impossible for them to aim and fire accurately.

Lasers are the ultimate defensive weapon, if they are mass produced most post-ww1 military tech will be obsolete (tanks, planes, missiles, ever artillery) we will probably see a return to light infantry trench and subterranean wars, and perhaps chemical and biological weapons replacing nukes as WMDs of choice. While WW1 sucked this is a positive development as military technology will be in an equilibrium that favors defenders, compared to what it is today which favors a first strike aggressor.

Seems extremely impractical. Realistically if there was a move away from wheels instead you would see crab like designs rather than bipedal humanoid designs due to their maneuverability.
