Taking aim at Americans’ Second Amendment rights, global printer giant HP Inc. has announced plans to restrict purchasers of its 3D printers from being able to print firearms at home.

The tech giant, which is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of personal computers and printers, says that everyday consumers will be prohibited from printing so-called “ghost guns” – which are made of plastic and contain no metal, supposedly making them “undetectable,” according to liberals – on its machines, citing a “regular use” policy that prohibits the practice.

Unless owners of HP’s 3D printers are licensed firearms manufacturers, they won’t be allowed to print their own guns. And nobody, the company says, will be allowed to print any type of firearm that can’t be detected by airport security.

“HP is against ‘ghost guns’ being produced on our 3D printers,” HP Chief Executive Dion Weisler wrote in a letter back in November that was obtained by The Oregonian / OregonLive.com.

HP won’t say how it plans to police users and prevent them from printing 3D guns

Weisler’s letter does not, however, indicate how HP plans to police 3D printer users in order to prevent them from violating the company’s “regular use” policy. Since ghost guns are designed to be untraceable and unregulated, it would seem as though HP is merely blowing politically-correct smoke.
