    As if we don't have enough already. A working pistol made with a 3D printer.

    All you need now is a money printer as the 3D printer costs $8000 dollars😕

    Doesn't this "$" mean dollars?
    As for the cost being $8,000.00 wouldn't be long before it paid for itself. I think it'd be a good investment. I hope VR sees this because, although he's already wealthy, there's always room for more money in his offshore accounts I should think.


    I wonder if he's one of the 450 people being looked into by revenue Canada?

    You need to think this one through. For instance, you can now make a gun totally out of plastic that will not be detected by X rays. So a terrorist bent on taking over a passenger jet can get onboard with his new gun undetected and the bullets too can now be made with the same printer since it is shown proof positive plastic can now take the tremendous pressure of firing. This opens up a new nightmare for home security.

    You want the cartels now to have access to guns you can't even trace? Home brew weapons by the millions?

    Sure why not?

    There'd be ketchup and claret all over the place.
