Is that an AR-15 action without upper receiver, stock or barrel? Why test fire just that?

Nevermind, I read the article. Oh just lovely, a completely plastic printable gun action. I bet its inaccurate as hell but doubt that matters much to terrorists.

Terrorists don't seem to have a lot of trouble obtaining traditionally manufactured firearms.

And considering what 3-D printers cost...

Right, so the only people I have to worry about are the closet nuts in the USA. I feel so much better now.

Yeah, the 3D printed guns are for people with disposable income (so, sane enough to have a pretty decent job) who want a 3D printed gun because 3D printing.

If you want to set the bar for misuse as "dude got convicted" you have a bet.

I couldn't decide where to put this link, here, tech or video.
This is a video of a bowling ball and feathers falling at the exact same rate in a huge NASA vacuum chamber.
Science and it made me very very happy to see.

If you want to set the bar for misuse as "dude got convicted" you have a bet.
Given the speed of our judicial system, that might not happen in five years. Somebody would have to be arrested for an infraction within one year to expect a conviction in five. If we're betting based on conviction, make that 9 years from today and you have a bet.
