>> Stephen: HOW ARE YOU,

FOLKS?

WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.

NATION, DESPITE THE SENATE'S

RECENT KEFEET OF UNIVERSAL

BACKGROUND CHECKS THE GUN

CONTROL DEBATE RAGES ON.

WILL AMERICA ABE PLACE WHERE

ANYONE CORPORATE CAN GET A GUN

REGARDLESS OF MENTAL HEALTH OR

CRIMINAL RECORD OR WILL WE FACE

THE NIGHTMARE.

THERE IS SOME GOOD GUN NEWS

COMING FROM A VERY STRANGE

PLACE.

YOUR U.S.B. PORT.

JIM.

>> BOOT UP YOUR COMPUTER.

DOWNLOAD A FILE, BUILD A WORKING

GUN.

THIS ISN'T A FANTASY.

THIS IS-- THIS IS REAL.

THIS IS A VIDEO HERE THAT

ACTUALLY SHOWS THE ALL-PLASTIC

GUN BEING TESTIFIERED.

IT WAS MADE FROM PARTS CREATED

BY THIS 3 D PRINTER WHICH CAN

TURN DIGITAL FILES INTO SOILED

PLASTIC OBJECTS.

>> Stephen: THAT'S RIGHT,

ANYONE WITH AN INEXPENSIVE

DESKTOP 3D PRINTER CAN DOIN LOAD

A FILE AND PRINT THE PARTS OF A

WORKING FIREARM IN A FEW HOURS,

MAKING IT THE FASTEST WAY TO GET

A GUN IN AMERICA, NEXT TO

OPENING A CHECKING ACCOUNT IN

TEXAS.

( LAUGHTER )

NOTICE, FOLKS, THIS USES THE

SAME 3D PRINTER TECHNOLOGY I

SHOWED YOU WHEN THE HOSTED THE

DEVELOPERS OF THE MAKERBOT TO

DEMONSTRATE HOW A DESKTOP

COMPUTER COULD BE USED TO PRINT

ANOTHER LETHAL WEAPON-- MY HEAD.

( LAUGHTER )

DON'T WORRY.

I NEVER KEEP IT LOADED.

( LAUGHTER )

PRINTING UP YOUR OWN GUN IS A

GREAT IDEA, FOLKS, ALTHOUGH PRO

TIP-- IF YOU'RE PRINTING THEM UP

IF YOUR ENTIRE MOUNTAINTOM

MILITIA, BE SURE TO CHECK THE

COLLATE BOX.

OTHERWISE IT WILL PRINT OUT

2,000 BARRELS THEN TWO HOW

RECOIL SPHRINGZ, 2,000 TRIGGERS.

YOU'LL BE SORTING AND STAPLING

GUNS ALL NIGHT.

( LAUGHTER )

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

IT'S HAPPENED TO ALL OF US.

AND THE MOON WITH THE GOLDEN

PLASTIC GUN IS 25-YEAR-OLD

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS LAW STUDENT

CODY WILSON, FOUNDER OF DEFENSE

DISTRIBUTED AIR, NONPROFIT

DEDICATED TO PROTECTING ACCESS

TO GUNS, AND HE IS VERY CLEAR

WHY HE WANTS TO MAKE PLASTIC

FIREMANS AND HIGH-CAPACITY

MAGAZINES AVAILABLE ONLINE.

>> THAT'S A REAL POLITICAL ACT,

GIVING YOU A MAGAZINE.

TELLING YOU THAT THAT WILL NEVER

BE TAKEN AWAY.

THAT'S REAL POLITICS.

THAT'S RAD CAPITOL HILL

EQUALITY.

THAT'S WHAT I BELIEVE IN.

I'M JUST RESISTING.

WHAT AM I RESISTING?

I DON'T KNOW.

THE INSTITUTIONALIZATION OF THE

HUMAN PSYCHE?

I'M NOT SURE.

>> Stephen: YEAH.

THIES REAL RALLYING CRY.

WHAT DO WE WANT?

GUNS.

WHY DO WE WANT THEM?

I DON'T KNOW.

( LAUGHTER )

( APPLAUSE )

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

FOLKS, THIS IS A GAME CHANGER,

AND NOT JUST BECAUSE IT LOOKS

LIKE IT WAS MADE BY HASBRO.

REMEMBER, KIDS, THE BRIGHT

PLASTIC GUN IS DADDY'S.

THIS KIND OF GUN IS SO

ACCESSIBLE TO SO MANY PEOPLE SO

QUICKLY, DEFENSE DISTRIBUTED IS

EVEN CALLING IT A WIKI-WEAPON

BECAUSE LIKE WIKIPEDIA IT WILL

ALSO BE USED TO SETTLE BAR BETS.

WELL, SAD TO SAY, NO SURPRISE,

UNCLE SAM GOOSESTEPPED IN LAST

WEEK AND BOOT STOMPED OUR ONLINE

FREEDOMS ORDERING DEFENSE

DISTRIBUTED TO REMOVE THE FILE

THAT PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS FOR

THE 3D PRINTED GUN UNTIL IT

EXAMINES THEM FOR LEGALITY.

FOLKS, THIS IS CHILLING.

THE FED HAS PULLED OUR WORLDWIDE

WEAPONS AND WE ALL KNOW, ONCE

SOMETHING HAS BEEN DELETED FROM

THE INTERNET, IT IS AS GONE AS

ANTHONY WEINER'S CROTCH.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

I CERTAINLY HOPE THAT WAS NOT

LOADED.

( LAUGHTER )

WELL, NATION, I'M NOT GOING TO

STAND FOR THIS.

YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PRINT OUT

A GUN, BUT IF YOU HEAD OVER TO

colbernation.com RIGHT NOW, YOU

CAN DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW

TO TURN YOUR PRINTER INTO A GUN.

IT SHOOTS 8 1/2 X 11 BULLETS

THAT GIVE INTRUDERS A NASTY

PAPERCUT AND THEN YOU'RE GOING

TO WANT TO SQUEEZE A LEMON ON

THEM.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
