Thank you for this enlightening post Sylvia! So according to these Wikileak documents ATF is not to blame for all the weaponry used; it is gratifying to see that there are indeed "two sides to every story."

With the rapid development of cheap computer assisted 3D printers soon anyone will be able to produce a firearm in their garage within a few hours, no machining necessary. It is what Jay Leno uses when he wants to make parts for his 100 year old cars, and the space station uses when they need to replace a part.

Thanks, Fred
