A 25 year old University of Texas law student has created a working gun with a 3D printer. The gun is made out of ABS plastic, except the steal firing pin and a 6 ounce chuck of steal so it can be detected by metal detectors. Now that this news has gone viral in Texas, congressman Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) is calling a ban on all plastic guns, which if not passed by US congress will expire December 2013.

What do you think?

If I could make my own SuperSoakers with a 3D printer, that would be beneficial for a pool party. :D

I think if this was really news worthy, it would have been told 2 years ago. This was done in Massachusetts (2 years ago) with a 3D printer.

And I question why its being made such an issue now....

I kind of think that they're going to start trying to re-write The Constitution at some point. And I imagine guns, free speech, and due process are things we should worry about.
