Shannon Watts' Latest Tweet Sums Up The Flaws In Anti-Gunners' Arguments

Ever since the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) came to an agreement that Americans should be legally allowed to download blueprints for 3-D firearms, gun control advocates have began a full-fledged freak out. 

Shannon Watts, the Founder of gun control group Moms Demand Action, retweeted an NRATV clip of Dana Loesch, along with her insight on why 3-D guns are dangerous:

Wait, what? Since when do criminals follow the law? The very definition of being a criminal is someone who breaks said laws. Making it illegal for companies to upload and share blue prints for CNC machines isn't going to suddenly make every person in America a law-abiding citizen. Anyone who thinks such is down right dumb.

What makes gun control advocates think that outlawing blue prints from the world wide web will keep them off the Internet? People were uploading blue prints before this lawsuit came about or before they were even on the government's radar. 

The theory that creating laws will suddenly change bad behavior is something that hasn't worked. Just look at how well that worked for prohibition and the struggle that's currently taking place with marijuana. 

But let's be clear about something: Dana Loesch is right. If the government wanted to buckle down on 3-D printed guns, or ghost guns, as they like to call them, then they would almost have to put 3-D printers on the National Firearms Act's (NFA) list of regulated items.
