A lower receiver is not a full gun. The upper receiver with barrel and bolt are the critical elements that need to contain the high pressures involved with the firearm. To say he printed a complete working gun is not even close to reality.

Blatant fear mongering. It will remain much easier to just buy one, legally, or illegally, for the foreseeable future.

He did not "print" a gun. He printed the lower receiver. It's nothing more than a hunk of polymer without the upper receiver, which is the part that he had to purchase from a licensed firearms dealer. Let's not feed the FUD.

Next there will be a clamor for a registered inventory of everything we possess or maybe anything we might come in contact with. All with the government's right to inspect and verify of course.

Oh, that'll come with Obamacare: "As the Secretary shall determine...". Government doesn't need the benefit of tragedy to exact tyrany. They've already got the mechanism in the form of our new 2400+ page "constitution". So if anything needs to be outlawed...
