"They don't want people to have real homemade guns."
It really boils down to an attack on 3D printing itself.
The only way to stop it would be to put out propaganda showing a bunch of Anarchists printing Lego-guns and dreaming about how they're going to take over with them.
"They're easy and cheap to make, been around for awhile, and they sure aren't made of plastic."
You're absolutely right. This is like offering an Anarchist a plastic sword and killing them should they try to fight with it. It serves no worthwhile purpose unless your purpose is to demonize and regulate 3D printing. They can't even tell you what they intend to do with their Lego-Guns. Even a real sword would serve no worthwhile purpose in an Anarchists hands. It would serve nothing but evil.
Anarchists are their own worst enemies and I don't believe they're as stupid they pretend to be.
