Consider I have a 3-d printer capable of making guns that are non metallic, fully automatic and untraceable because I cover my trails, not even the shit xerox does with sn, model, etc., usually done in yellow so as not to be detected crap. Ban the printer? software? knowledge? It’s not mass destruction but extrapolate the consequences of any tech and there are roadblocks. Peace.

Dear T:

I don’t favor banning anything of the sort.

The airlines should be in charge of their own security.

If they don’t want guns like that on board, they can search people, impose (as a condition of purchasing a ticket) a large penalty on anyone with a gun like that who tries to get on their plane.

Why should any sane person think that the government would be more efficient at solving this problem than competing airline companies? The government is in charge of such inefficient enterprises as the Post Office, the Motor Vehicle Bureau and the economies of the USSR, East Germany, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela. Nuff said.

Best regards,

Walter
