Want to create a plastic, usable handgun in your own home? Thanks to a Texas law student, all it takes is a 3-D printer.
Gun control advocates are pushing to salvage a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines as part of the post-Newtown debate, but they may have been outflanked by technology in the form of 3D printers.
On this night, Dan Enos was fine with letting the other coach make the game's most important decision.
Downloading a gun design to your computer, building it with a three-dimensional printer that uses plastics and other materials, and firing it minutes later. No background checks, no questions asked.
Wilson, founder of Defense Distributed, a nonprofit that advocates the free distribution of information on 3-D printed weapons, posted blueprints online for using the printers to make the pistol which he says he designed, before being ordered by the State Department to take them down after two days.
Defense Distributed executive Cody Wilson told BetaBeat that he believes the company is "immune" from the review procedures, but he removed the plans from the website anyway.
