    ‘Ghost Gunner’ king: Democrats’ regulation push fuels DIY industry

    Defense Distributed has sold 3,000 of its Ghost Gunner milling machines since 2014. Mr. Wilson says sales spiked since terrorist Omar Mateen killed 49 and wounded 53 at a gay nightclub on June 12, and then again when Democrats pushed for gun control legislation on Monday.

    Profits at Defense Distributed have jumped from $30,000 per week to $50,000 per week, the gun rights advocate said.

    Ladd Everitt, the communications director for the gun control group Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, told Wired that DIY gun enthusiasts’ actions are the equivalent of a “tantrum.”
    “I don’t see what this is going to accomplish, but it’s a rebellion,” Mr. Smith said. “It’s just a political statement at a time when gun regulation is at the door.”

    Wonder what the non-profit is going to do w $50,000 per week in profits... You can always pay bonuses to employees to decrease the surplus.

    What most people don't realize about machines is that even the most crude, yet properly-designed machine can be used to make much more precise machines. Thus, someone who knows what he's doing can start with wood and twine and in several days to a week or so wind up milling firearms.

    The key lies in the knowledge of mechanical engineering, not the machine itself.
