    Working gun made with 3D printer

    Yes, you have guessed it. No need to explain what country this guy is from. Only one brainless muppet of a race would have an idea of making a plastic gun from a printer then selling the drawings online.

    Of all the things he could make, he decides to make that. Great. Now all we need are plastic bullets and this will no doubt not show up in airport body scanners.

    My guess is a gun makes for better marketing than a pepper grinder.

    Don't worry about it.
    If the ink for a 3D printer costs the same as ink for a 2D printer then no-one can afford it.

    Well the US does want to portray the white US citizen as the latest terrorist threat. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a backed ploy!

    Only a brainless muppet would support having the ability to possess a weapon and use it in self defense taken away by his government. You can bet the old hag in Windsor Castle and the rest of Britain's royal parasites and elite have guns protecting them, yet ordinary Brits are denied that right.

    I have just read the "Exclusive " investigation in one of the UK Sunday papers. The journalist printed off the gun then took it on the Eurostar train where he assembled it in the bog. Now as it is just an empty plastic gun which is completely useless without the metal .38 bullets it isn't much of a threat to anyone now is it ?
    I also read that you can only fire the thing once so I would imagine that your Muslim Jihadist hell bent on mass slaughter of the filthy infidels isn't going to be rushing out and buying a printer any time soon.
    I would say you could do far more damage with a good old fashioned baseball bat.
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    much ado about nothing.
    you can make a single shot pistol out of a pipe, a bit of wood and a spring.
    You could make something stealthy out of plastic with a drill.

    US government orders removal of Defcad 3D-gun designs
    10 May 2013


    The BBC's Rebecca Morelle saw the 3D-printed gun's first test in Austin, Texas

    The US government has demanded designs for a 3D-printed gun be taken offline.

    The order to remove the blueprints for the plastic gun comes after they were downloaded more than 100,000 times.

    The US State Department wrote to the gun's designer, Defense Distributed, suggesting publishing them online may breach arms-control regulations.

    Although the files have been removed from the company's Defcad site, it is not clear whether this will stop people accessing the blueprints.

    They were being hosted by the Mega online service and may still reside on its servers.

    Also, many links to copies of the blueprints have been uploaded to file-sharing site the Pirate Bay, making them widely available. The Pirate Bay has also publicised its links to the files via social news site Reddit suggesting many more people will get hold of the blueprints.

    Cody Wilson, who founded Defense Distributed, told the BBC that the genie was out of the bottle.

    "Once people heard what happened, Pirate Bay has exploded. I'm sat here watching it now, seeing the downloads go up and up."

    Analysis: 3D printing's Wild West


    Rebecca Morelle
    Science reporter, BBC World Service

    Earlier this week, I saw Cody Wilson fire his gun for the first time.

    Small, white and made from plastic, the firearm looked like a toy. But as the shot rang, you could feel the force of this weapon.

    Hours later, and the blueprints had been placed online.

    Mr Wilson describes himself as a crypto-anarchist, and his belief is that everyone has a right to a gun.

    Through this project he aimed to export this idea to the rest of the world - whether the rest of the world wanted it or not.

    However a week is a long time in the Wild West of 3D printing, and now Mr Wilson has been ordered to remove the plans.

    But with more than 100,000 downloads already, the designs have already been widely circulated, and there is now little that can be done to halt their spread.
    The Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance emailed Mr Wilson a document demanding the designs be "removed from public access" until he could prove he had not broken laws governing shipping weapons overseas by putting the files online and letting people outside the US download them.

    Explosive force

    Mr Wilson said that Defense Distributed had complied with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) rules. He said the rules were pretty convoluted, but he believed his project was exempt as Defense Distributed had been set up specifically to meet requirements that exempted it from ITAR.

    "Our gun operations were registered with ITAR."

    He said the letter was unclear in that the Office was conducting a "review" yet at the same time he had to remove the files.

    "They are stalling, they are going to make this review last as long as they can," he said. "They are getting a lot of political pressure." He added that he had taken legal advice about what to do next.

    "We've also had offers of help from lawyers from all around the country," he said.

    He welcomed the US government's intervention, saying it would highlight the issue of whether it was possible to stop the spread of 3D-printed weapons.

    Unlike conventional weapons, the printed gun - called the Liberator by its creators - is made out of plastic on a printer. Many engineering firms and manufacturers use these machines to test prototypes before starting large-scale production.

    While desktop 3D printers are becoming more popular, Defense Distributed used an industrial 3D printer that cost more than 5,000 to produce its gun. This was able to use high-density plastic that could withstand and channel the explosive force involved in firing a bullet.

    Before making the Liberator, Mr Wilson got a licence to manufacture and sell the weapon from the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

    The Bureau told the BBC that any American could make a gun for their own use, even on a 3D printer, but selling it required a licence.

    Mr Wilson, who describes himself as a crypto-anarchist, said the project to create a printed gun and make it widely available was all "about liberty".

    As all handguns are illegal in the UK so will the clown of a journalist be charged with having an illegal firearm ?
    I also find it highly amusing that the biggest arms dealer in the world, the USA is a tad upset at people being able to print off a weapon instead of having to buy one.
    Just how is Obama going to take away your guns when they are freely available on the internet ? Ha Ha Ha !
