Gun control is still a hotly contested issue, and any tragedies in the media recently seem to turn around into political fights within moments of the stories breaking. On last night’s Colbert Report, Stephen recapped the recent stories on the government’s attempt to shut down Defense Distributed‘s free downloads with software which allows anyone with a 3-D printer to produce a gun. 3-D printers were debuted on The Colbert Report with the company Makerbot who created a miniature plastic bust of Colbert by scanning him. I did a quick piece on the ramifications of 3-D printed guns and how those would be accepted by the NRA and major arms manufacturers with a video of Bill Maher giving his two cents on the subject.
Colbert exposes just how insane the idea of self-regulating gun control is in this video clip.
