    I laughed so hard. Then I cried. “Why didn’t I think of that”. It happened in Utica, close by. It’s been all over the local news.

    No big deal. When I worked in a chemical waste incinerator in the mid 1990's, we occasionally did "gun burns" for area police departments. Mostly those guns came from the gun buyback programs. Talking with the local officers who had to be present to actually witness the guns being destroyed, I learned that a lot of what gets turned in at a buy back is worn out junk. I was told a working gun is a lot more valuable on the street than what the buyback programs pay. They get some folks who turn in working guns but also pay good money for lots of useless guns. Apparently, that's what happened here and I don't consider it all that unusual for them to "buy back" something like that.

    Ahh yes. Manufacturing guns without a license to do so with the sole intent of selling them. NY state, not exactly one of the friendliest 2A states, they'd regulate & charge for each component of the cartridge if they could.

    Could it be worse?

    Does it go, could it go something like this?

    Knock knock
    Who's there?
    BATFEFBeyesCIDCIC, 40 agents, drone coverage and MRAP, Inc. and 16 News vans, you've manufactured with intent to sell. And you ARE not a ...

    Ok. There it is , hopefully not

    great money maker. but also a bummer as it'll reinforce the screaming for banning it.

    Lol wonder were the gift cards were for, even more funny the printer was a Christmas gift. I've been hoping for a buy back close by I've got some stuff I think they would love, would like to know how well finished the printed lower are. Would they be dumb enuff to think that trigger tester from larue is a gun if modified some, there like less then $10 aren't they.

    Now he's an idiot! Turn ins are anonymous, but once he goes on social media, he just gave them fodder for an investigation. He won't be hard to ID.

    Some people just can't help themselves....

    I wonder how this can play out, as far as the law's concerned.

    Probably not very well for him, given the chain of events...

    In the promo for Houston's next "gun buyback" on the news last night, they showed a pile of obviously 3D printed "liberator" type pistols. Are they trying to plant a seed for quick profits from anyone with a 3D printer? I'd been thinking about getting a 3D printer for a while, this could quickly recoup its costs :evil:

    One of the classic cases of unintended consequences was the cobra incident in India.

    back when Britain occupied India they were concerned about the large number of cobras. Naturally they instituted a bounty so the locals would be incentivized to kill the cobras. But instead of killing wild cobras, the locals started raising cobras to turn in for the reward. When the Brits caught on and stopped paying the bounty, the locals turned their stables of cobras loose. The end result was there were more cobras at the end of the program than before.
