Nat’l – Opinion – Gun Control Policies Have Been Destructive, Ineffective, And Unnecessary

ABOVE THE LAW.COM October 16, 2018 – The “gun nut” culture that fetishizes gun ownership scares and bewilders me. My second main objection to most gun control measures is that they are ineffective.

Nat’l – Gun Control – Researcher Discovers Way to Trace 3D-Printed Guns—With a Few Caveats

POPULAR MECHANICS.COM October 15, 2018 – Of the numerous risks posed by 3D-printed guns, a prominent fear is that they will give potential criminals easy access to untraceable firearms, leaving law enforcement with little recourse when trying to track the illicit firearms.
