Today's fake CBC news

Despite all the obvious issues, let's blame Donald Trump for 3D printed guns...insert alt text hereOf course, there are a few flies in the ointment...

"Gun industry experts have expressed doubt that criminals would go to the trouble, since the printers needed to make the guns are very expensive, the guns themselves tend to disintegrate quickly and traditional firearms are easy to come by."
But, wait... let's ask an objective source...
The settlement, which was signed in April but only took effect in late June, says that the DEFCAD files in question are "approved for public release (unlimited distribution) in any form and are exempt from the export licensing requirements of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations."

The State Department has also agreed to pay Defense Distributed's legal fees, which total nearly $40,000.
It's important to remember, this was all Obama era stuff...
The federal civil suit began more than five years ago when Cody Wilson and his group, Defense Distributed, published designs for the "Liberator," the world’s first 3D-printed handgun.

In the United States, the Supreme Court has generally rejected the concept of prior restraint.
Ted Kennedy's car has still killed more people than all the 3D printed guns in the world.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"The Liberals, in typical sleight-of-hand politics, have successfully changed the subject from Faisal Hussain and the 13 casualties, to this absurd issue."

"There are a few restrictions* on magazine sizes and many concealable pistols** are prohibited."
*FACT 1... ALL rifle magazines (with the exception of .22 plinkers) are restricted to five rounds. ALL pistol magazines are restricted to ten rounds.

**FACT 2... ALL concealable handguns (a barrel length of 4 inches or less) are prohibited.

You can smell the "professional" journalism.

Except Ted Kennedy's car didn't kill people, Ted Kennedy did.

old white guy says----------------3d printers for design and models do not make a cold steel useable gun. I for one would not want to fire a bullet through a plastic gun from a 3d printer. I wonder where the zip guns are these days? it must be very easy for a criminal to get a gun in Canada, there seems to no shortage of gang bangers shooting each other.

i'm guessing your average gangbanger
would have trouble reading the
printer manual.

The Liberals,in typical sleight-of-hand politics,have successfully changed the subject from Faisal Hussain and the 13 casualties, to this absurd issue.
The msm is convinced that anyone can simply "replicate" a workable pistol with a 3 D printer,and the hysteria is being dutifully ramped up by all the Toronto based media.

You can't tell these people it's a non-issue as they read at CBC that we are on the verge of becoming "just like the gun crazy USA".
Now,the LPC intends to discuss a total ban on handguns at their convention in August,and apparently they plan to recall parliament this Fall,then immediately prorogue it to push the legislation through.

Not all rifle magazines are restricted to five rounds. Detachable magazines made for semi-automatic long guns that fire a centrefire cartridge are prohibited devices if they hold more than five rounds. (You don't need the gun or ammunition, it's simply a crime to possess such a magazine whether you know it or not.) Magazines that are built into such guns must also be limited to five rounds, unless the regulations specifically exempt the gun (e.g. the U.S. M1 rifle, the Garand,) it will be prohibited.

There is no limit to the capacity of magazines made for long guns that require manual operation of the mechanism to extract an empty case and move a loaded cartridge from the magazine to the firing chamber. (Hunting regulations are provincial jurisdiction and some provinces limit capacity allowed when using a gun for hunting but those limits aren't in the Criminal Code.)

For handguns, the limit is ten rounds. Again, a detachable magazine not conforming to the limit is a prohibited device possession of which is a crime with or without ammunition or a gun that it fits.
