no one will go on a shooting rampage with a 3d printed gun in our lifetime and probably not in your kids lifetime either, unless its with a lazer gun, powered by a 1l eco engine from ford.

You just go on beleiveing that, until it actually hapens. But i'm sure you will be rationalizing it even then.


People who predict the future often get it wrong because they extrapolate linearly whereas in reality growth is almost always exponential and not linear.


That, and because they fail to think outside the box of what they know.

You know. Automobiles will never catch on either. And do you know why not? Because there simply aren't enough people willing to do that job of walking in front with a red flag.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Some more from the manifesto:

Quote:
Won’t your attack result in calls for the removal of gun rights from
Whites in the United states?


Yes, that is the plan all along, you said you would fight to protect your
rights and the constitution, well soon will come the time.

Won’t your attack result in calls for the removal of gun rights in the
New Zealand?


The gun owners of New Zealand are a beaten, miserable bunch of baby
boomers, who have long since given up the fight.When was the last time
they won increased rights? Their loss was inevitable.I just accelerated
things a bit.

They had long since lost their cities, take a look at Auckland. Did you
really expect they would not also lose their rights?

We all like an illusion of controlling something, innit.

Which brings us back to the gun laws.

Sooo... no real answer then. Just more obfuscation and trolling. Got it.

It's shameful that you are allowed to troll this forum with such impunity but, hey, you seem to have been granted your own set of rules.

No, actually you don't. I responded to a post by Loz and you launched in with both feet with some utter bollocks which didn't bring anything to the discussion. See below...

So then you decide to belittle me because apparently you made some obscure reference which I didn't pick up on....

I know you are surprised by the analogy. That doesn't surprise me

The point a bunch of people are trying to make - everything is already being made at home. And what is not, will be soon.

Home made phones? You mean radios? Receivers/transmitters? Ask commie dissent? You need some?

Quick, though, before they ban the access to the parts.

You jump in uninvited about a point you didn't make then run off with it in some bizarre direction.

If you couldn't answer my comment to Loz then just leave it be. Find someone else to mob. It's boring and it's embarrassing. I thought you were supposed to be a teacher and above that kind of petty behaviour.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Anyway, back on topic. Anybody not think it's funny that everything Brenton Tarrant said would happen with regards to gun control in his manifesto (as well as many other things too), is now happening? People's reactions are so habitual. What's worse is that he said that he wanted these things to happen and everyone is only too happy to oblige.
