Using SSRS 2012 is there anyway to allow the users to print directly to a printer without having to first send the report to the screen?

Not that I'm aware of, not within the SSRS product itself..... reason being SSRS runs in the context of the server, printing is in the context of the client machine. Usually the report is pulled to the client's browser, where they can send it to a handy printer they have access to.

-Now, that being said, outside of the SSRS product, if you are to build your own application or control, you can do it.... but it's by no means a turn key thing.

Here's a vb example of a windows form doing just this:
