Gun control /= gun ban.

There's a vast difference between wanting more measures and limits on guns, versus wanting to outright ban firearms.

No one, without proper knowledge and training, should be able to simply waltz into a gun store and purchase a gun without any ado. They're dangerous weapons if misused and my only question is, why is it easier to get a driver's license than a gun license?

it's still a gun, to people who in the first place, might not be able to buy them

It's legal to make your own guns here (some restrictions on auto/semi-auto). Buying isn't the only option. They'd still be better off making their own handgun than using this thing.

plz. explain to me what the material matters?

A major concern of using plastic weapons is they're easier to get into secure locations due to metal detectors.

It's only legal for people who have licenses to own firearms, and it's only legal to make certain guns. With certain exceptions a firearm may be made by a non-licensee provided it is not for sale and the maker is not prohibited from possessing firearms. So, it's not a valid argument.

it's legal because people are able to? lol xD

anyway as i said it's more a problem for the rest of the civilized world not for the usa. they love they idea of power to much.

That doesn't make it anymore legal. It allows easy access to a potential weapon, weak as it may be, it's still a gun, to people who in the first place, might not be able to buy them, i.e weapon sales background check.

If you can't pass a background check, but can afford a 3D printer, you can probably buy a regular gun.

plz. explain to me what the material matters?
is it gun or not? does it shoot deadly projectiles or not?

The point is a plastic gun can't be detected, but the bullets can.  Meaning the plastic gun is no more dangerous than the millions of illegal owned weapons people already have.

Only if you can get bullets through the metal detectors, which you can't.

people who want guns for killing will just obtain them illegally.

your not gonna stop people out for killing anyway.
but those that want to use a weapon to threaten people whit. are more likely to use a knife when they know that the vast majority of people wont have a gun. because it is cheaper.
and a knife attack can be defended against. or just co-op whit him and get out of it alive instead of risking your life for some stupid money or w/e they need of you.
if the vast majority has a gun, then they are more likely to use a gun to threaten. and since you have a gun also, things fastly escalate in a firefight whit potential deaths.
what materials are more imported then your life?

Yes, but that would be illegal. That's a whole different ball game, since money and ability to purchase aren't about the same issue.

The ones that exist are made to be harmful, but not lethal, and have a metal case.

just a matter of time.
they can print stone, so why no stone bullets?
