But most people don’t know how to make them, let alone knock them off one after the other. Much easier to buy a printer. Then ANYONE can make one.

ANYONE can make a gun far more effective than a 3d printed one, with a length of iron pipe from Home Depot, a shotgun shell, and a hammer, that would win in a gunfight every day of the week vs a Liberator.

A kid in shop class in junior high could make one.

Not if you’re buying a printed one from a dude who owns a printer and is knocking them off one after the other

That would be illegal without an FFL.

So? A high school kid who wants to shoot someone at school’s not gonna care quite so much about quality if he has no choice.

If we can get high school shooters to switch to Liberators instead of what they’re using now, that will be a dramatic improvement.

See above. I’ll add one main point here. You’re just talking about the impact on the U.S. But these plans will be available the world over, in countries where there is no gun problem.

Since gun proliferation metrics do not track meaningfully with gun homicide rate anywhere in the world, it’s hard to see how there could be a problem there either.
