Do you think the NRA will protect the rights of people who print 3D gun?

3D printing is the first baby steps into technology that's going to be exhilarating but also terrifying: nanorobotic assembly.
The day will come when we can treat matter like information - where you can "Star Trek replicate" anything from a gun to a diamond ring to a car to a line of cocaine.
Right now, you can build a gun out of plastic using an expensive printer. This is kind of like the situation with music in 1990, where, yes, you could record a CD and send it across the Internet, but no one would do it, because the CD would take up half your hard drive and take three days to transmit.
Now, it's 2013, and something like 90% of all music isn't paid for. It's just floating around for free.
3D guns right now are the equivalent of 1990 WAV files - it's just so much easier, and cheaper, to go to your gun store and buy a gun.
When people can say "Hey, computer, make me a gun, an egg salad sandwich, and a Toyota Prius," well, suffice to say that our current legal system (and economy!) is just not equipped to deal with that.

And it worked?! Holy **** dude...
Brave new world.
I don't think the NRA would do that. Most people in the NRA support changes and better follow through with background checks and stuff. Not like it matters now though, 3d printers can make guns that work now...
Looks like just about every invention ever made will be used for destruction sooner or later. Sad, ain't it?

But one thing is for sure: The government will have a delayed reaction to "regulate" these printers by a few years--I think then it might be a bit troubling to regulate them.

What about toy guns, has Biden spoken out against them. Maybe women can use toy guns to protet them. 0bama/Biden, the two biggest dummies ever to occupy the White House.
