The National Rifle Association has come down in support of make-at-home guns.
The weapons, which were recently legalized by way of a settlement between gun rights activists and the Department of Justice, can be made at home on a 3-D printer. There is no way to track them and they have already been used by some gangs.
Criminals—including felons and domestic abusers—can print an AR-15 at their home.
In a new video from NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, the guns are hailed as symbols of “freedom and innovation.”
She argued simultaneously that there are already laws that stop criminals and abusers from getting guns and that it would be impossible to stop criminals and abusers from getting guns.
“To try to restrict this is as unenforceable as trying to institute bans on magazine capacity,” Loesch said. “You just need simple shop skills to be able to do it in your garage… it’s absolutely enforceable… there are laws on the books that regulate that. Pretty much every part of firearm
"If you're a prohibited possessor you can't do any of these things. I realize that the Chuck Schumers of the world, the Dianne Feinsteins and the Nancy Pelosis, and the Chris Murphys want to completely pretend that none of those laws are on the books, nor do they exist." @DLoesch pic.twitter.com/M33lCBiiHcADVERTISEMENT

‘Washington is no longer functional’: Brian Williams admits he’s sad to report that ‘our government is broken’
MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Tuesday reported that America's federal government is broken.
"This was day 908 of the Trump Administration and while there is no joy in it, one way of summing up today is this: Our government’s broken, our politics are broken, Washington is no longer functional, and the cracks in our society are deepening," Williams reported.
"Much of this day was taken up by the discussion of racist statements by the president. Then tonight came the news that had so many people thinking back to when we were different, the death just tonight of retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens at the age of 99," he said.
Trump ignored being condemned by Congress and instead praised Republicans on Twitter for defending his racism
President Donald Trump celebrated on Tuesday night despite the House of Representatives having voted earlier in the day to condemn his racist statements.
By a final vote of 240 to 187, Congress voted for a resolution saying, "Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.”
The resolution said Congress “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.”
The tortured madness of Donald Trump: It’s clear the president is out of his mind
Where’s Shakespeare when we need him? Only the Bard of Avon could do literary justice to the tortured madness of Donald Trump, who fluctuates between petulant self-pity and weird self-praise.
His brags are especially weird because they usually involve achievements he hasn’t made. It’s as though his saying something makes it true — even though everyone except his most naive devotees can clearly see that he’s either hallucinating or lying. In June, for example, at a rally launching his reelection campaign, he retrumpeted an old campaign promise to “drain the swamp,” assuring the adoring crowd that “that’s exactly what we’re doing right now.”
