similar to the one used by Newton, Conn. shooter Adam Lanza. Contrary to popular opinion, this is not an "assault rifle."
Hobbyists, tinkers, and DIYers are the unsung heroes of our industry — "hackers" in the original sense of the word. But conflating "hobbyists" with "guns" causes fits of hysteria. And it’s entirely unwarranted.
The handwringing over the imagined capability to print 3D guns and the associated moral implications is absolutely absurd and betrays a basic misunderstanding of firearms and physics.
This all stems from Defense Distributed, a "Wiki Weapons Project" with aims of producing a fully printable firearm and distributing the plans via the Internet. The group — courtesy of its founder, Cody R. Wilson — makes no bones about its political leanings and support for the 2nd Amendment.
"How’s that national conversation going?" asks Wilson in a video showcasing a printed 3D magazine. The University of Texas School of Law student is referring to Democratic House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s call for a "new conversation" on gun control.
