    The 3D-Printed Rifle, Grizzly 2.0, Is Getting Stronger By The Week

    So far, the Grizzly's growl is worse than its bite, but that may soon change.
    The second version of the 3D-printed rifle, the Grizzly 2.0, was fired for the first time in a video released Friday, and this time it lasted 14 rounds before a crack formed. Even though the rifle is made almost entirely of 3D-printed plastic, the updated Grizzly shoots regular Winchester bullets.
    The rifle was made by a Canadian man who goes by "Matthew," The Verge reported. He's the same person behind the last 3D-printed rifle, which broke after just one firing two weeks ago.
    "Matthew" used a string to fire the original Grizzly from afar as a safety precaution, but eventually fired the Grizzly 2.0 by hand like a normal rifle.
    Even though the Grizzly doesn't look too threatening right now, it's impressive and terrifying how quickly these improvements have been made. 3D-printed guns can be built entirely in one's home without a license, and the more advanced the guns get, the more dangerous 3D printing becomes. Many of the guns contain little to no metal, so they may be able to get through metal detectors without being discovered.
    The 3D-printing enthusiast behind this YouTube account has certainly gone in a different direction since one of his first projects: a 3D-printed ukulele. Maybe he should stick to musical instruments and relieve us of the stress these guns are causing.

    If technology like this advances it's going to make the idea of Gun-Control a moot & irrelevant issue.

    Game on, basically.

    This is what happens in the 21st century when government thinks they can run EVERYTHING. This isn't the 19th century where big brother gives an order and all of the little brothers say OK. Technology has come too far for that.

    I approve of the military application for this technology. While drone strikes arent the most popular subject on this forum, the military being able to print off parts and make a drone within minutes is exceptionally efficient.

    That said, domestically, we need to ban this ****. By and large the feds are able to keep bomb schematics off the internet, they need to add this to the list.
    "Ignorance is not an excuse" were the words Goodell used when describing why those involved in the Saints bounty scandal would not avoid punishment.

    *cough*cough*bull*****cough*

    Metal detectors detect metal. A little metal, a lot of metal ... Doesn't matter. It's still metal. No gun will work without metal containing the controlled explosion of gunpowder igniting in a confined space. Thats how the bullet actually fires from the end of the gun (end of the muzzle is the path of least resistance) A lot of people were making the same types of ignorant comments when glocks came out.


    As to these types of "guns" ... You'd never catch me trusting one to not blow up in my hands. What type of person would want a gun like this? It's not durable. It's not really safe. Those printers are expensive as hell. So, who would want one? Hmm ... Perhaps criminals wanting a disposable, non-traceable gun. For this reason, I'd be in favor of outlawing 3-D printed weapons technology. It simply serves no legitimate purpose.
