Look, a gun, ban it!
A Texas company is set to release blueprints online that could be used to make a plastic gun with a 3D printer, Sen. Charles Schumer warned Sunday.
The non-profit, Defense Distributed, announced last week it made a working plastic gun using a 3D printer – and said it plans to post the blueprints for “The Liberator” online this week.
The Liberator may look like a toy, but “this gun can fire regular bullets, and can accept silencers and other attachments,” Schumer said, as he called for legislation aimed at outlawing the technology’s weapons potential.
The bill was drafted by Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.).
