Why are Dangerous Children Taught to Build Their Own Weapons?

Hand Held Plasma Rifle / Railgun

The weapon above is a 3D printed railgun / plasma rifle capable of firing projectiles of graphite, aluminum, copper-coated tungsten, and teflon/plasma rods. You cannot buy such a weapon in stores. But you can build one, if you know how.

Using a combination of 3D printing and widely available components, the man built a functioning handheld railgun that houses six capacitors and delivers more than 3,000 kilojoules of energy per shot. What does it shoot, you might be wondering? So far he has tested the gun using metal rods made of graphite, aluminum and copper-coated tungsten, like the ones pictured below.

We know that 3D printed firearms are old hat, with the 3D designs available on the internet.

But firearms were build by hand long before Samuel Colt standardised their production in factories. A good metalwork shop can produce large numbers of high quality custom firearms using traditional machining techniques.

But for firearms, it is the combination of additive and subtractive manufacturing that offers the greatest versatility and utility. Now that 3D printing in metals — and multitudes of other materials — is becoming more common, the best weapons makers and designers will need to learn to work with both types of “gunsmithing.”

Yet, we know that in many situations, plasma rifles and firearms are not the appropriate weapon for either offensive or defensive operations. Knives, compound bows, compressed air weapons, crossbows, simple staffs, spears, javelins, etc. etc. can be made by hand from commonly available materials by children who are quite young.

If you look within the JD Garcia curriculum for ages 3-6, you can find the early rudimentary training for simple weapons making:

Tool-making and weapons-making go hand in hand. This is natural, since virtually any tool can be used on the spare of the moment as an improvised weapon. Dangerous Children learn early, how to make weapons and how to improvise weapons from everyday objects.

They are not taught to build firearms, plasma rifles, railguns, explosives, etc. until they are deemed emotionally and developmentally mature enough to know how and when to use such weapons wisely and safely.

Not all Dangerous Children will learn to build weapons such as missile launchers and remotely controlled armed drones. As mentioned in an earlier posting, Dangerous Children tend to specialise, based upon their innate aptitudes, inclinations, and levels of emotional development and displayed wisdom.

For most Dangerous Children, their words and non-violent actions will have the most potent effect upon the world that they will require. That is as it should be. Only when pressed beyond reasonable alternatives will most Dangerous Children display a covert prowess in controlled violence and mayhem.

But in the end, we are all evolved from killers, else we would not be here at all. Violence — including lethal violence — will play a role in the coming expansion of an abundant human future.

Pacifists are not truly pacifists, if they are still alive. They have simply not thought the matter through yet — or have not yet been confronted by the harsh realities that await.
