Gunmaking, Pakistani style

A look at guns and gun manufacturing in one of the tribal areas of Pakistan. The reporter seems totally clueless about guns, but the video is interesting nonetheless.

Video here, about 8 minutes long.

Note that these guys have been making guns with only simple tools. No fancy CNC machines. Puts into perspective the folly of trying to ban guns, when your local Home Depot probably has all the equipment needed to make a workable gun for anyone with decent mechanical skills. I guess we'll have to have NICS checks for power tool purchases soon. :)
