People who 'possess' computer code that could allow a 3D printer to produce a plastic firearm would be required to submit to a federal government background check under Biden's plan, as though they were purchasing a finished weapon from a dealer.

Unenforceable?

Wouldn't it be fair to say that the majority of laws and regulations are not so much "proactive" but "reactive" or even "punitive"? After all, has there ever been a law that wasn't broken at one time or another?

Proactive or reactive is irreverent, either way they are all punitive in nature. Any law that is in conflict with the constitution is unconstitutional. A law cannot rely on one part of the constitution to negate another part of the constitution. In other words, the commerce clause cannot be used to deny your second amendment right. See
United States v. Lopez, 514 U. S. 549 (1995) and United States v. Morrison, 529 U.S. 598 (2000).
