Blueprints For 3D-Printed Firearms To Be Available Online August 1st; An Incredibly Bad Idea!
3D printed guns; what could go wrong?
Cnn: "Gun-rights activists have reached a settlement with the government that will allow them to post 3-D printable gun plans online starting August 1."
"The settlement ends a multi-year legal battle that started when Cody Wilson, who describes himself as a post-left anarchist, posted plans for a 3-D printed handgun he called "The Liberator" in 2013...."
"Do-it-yourself firearms like The Liberator have been nicknamed "Ghost Guns" because they don't have serial numbers and are untraceable."
"Wilson has built a website where people will be able to download The Liberator and digital files for an AR-15 lower receiver, a complete Baretta M9 handgun and other firearms. Users will also be able to share their own designs for guns, magazines and other accessories."
"For Wilson and his supporters, the ability to build unregulated and untraceable guns will make it much harder, if not impossible for governments to ban them."
