3D Printed Ruger Pistol Demonstration By Buck O’ Fama

 

 

 

 

 

 

” An experimenter under the nom de plume of Buck O’ Fama has printed the receiver for the popular Ruger Charger pistol, and assembled a working pistol with it.   The video shows the test fire of the gun, which appears to work well.    It has always been legal to make your own firearms in the United States, if they are not prohibited weapons.   Pistols such as the Ruger have been ruled to be protected under the Second Amendment to the Constitution.   At the end of the video, the experimenter notes: “If you take my gun, I will just print another one
   The video was posted on July 4th, Independence Day, from somewhere in the State of Nevada.   It is interesting that in spite of the fact that the poster did nothing illegal, they felt compelled to disguise their voice.”
     The truly disturbing thing about this video is the poll that was included on LiveLeak asking if people should have the right to create their own firearm with 3D printing . I guess that LiveLeak is no different than a lot of the social media sites in that there is a ‘leftist” tilt to the users , anyway here is a screenshot of the poll (now closed) results .

” Please tell me once again, gun grabbers, how well your laws work:

The arrest of three juveniles suspected of committing two weekend robberies led to the arrest of a fourth who was manufacturing and selling homemade firearms, police said.

The robberies happened over the weekend in the East Rock area, according to police. When the suspects were apprehended, one of them was in possession of a homemade “zip-gun,” police said.

Detectives obtained a search and seizure warrant for a residence on Mountain Ridge Road using the information provided by the three juveniles. Inside, officers found another assembled gun, a partially assembled gun and other gun components, police said.

A juvenile living in the residence was arrested and later told police that he had made and sold as many as 12 “zip-guns,” police said.

Guns can be incredibly low tech, and if you doubt me, read up on how simple it is to make a Sten submachine gun some time.”

Richardson’s Philippine Guerrilla Gun: A Gun To Get A Gun

 

 

 

 

” Americans have long been a fan of shotgunspumpssemi-autos, over and unders, you name it, we love em. One red-blooded American even ran into an interesting one while doing a little Wolverines-style combat in the Philippines and thought it would catch on back home once the smoke cleared. His name was Richardson, and his idea is best known as the Philippine Guerrilla Gun.

 

Who was Richardson?

 

Iliff D. “Rich” Richardson was born the son of a Methodist minister in 1918. He learned basic survival skills as part of Boy Scout Troop 92 in Los Angeles, and attended Compton Junior College in the 1930s before joining the Navy in 1940. Stationed in the Philippines when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Rich was assigned to PT-34, an ‘expendable’ 77-foot plywood motor torpedo boat. After the craft was sunk in April 1942 by Japanese aircraft, Rich and the remaining crew went ashore and fought first with the US Army then later with Philippine guerrillas once the main US force at Corregidor surrendered.”
