So we're probably going to end up in the same situation we have with copyright infringement? Where the government is saying "you have to stop this!" And the printing companies are saying "we'd have to hire 400,000 new employees to personally inspect each part".
This means that the risk of those components failing and injuring the "user" is very high.
The ability to make a single-shot crap gun with almost no metal has been around since before 1950, but I will NOT go into how or what.

Although I understand your points of it being an issue of our freedoms, and I'm not saying that the second amendment has to be destroyed, but let's think about this logically. What benefit could a 3D gun possibly have on society? I think Bill Maher brought up some great points a few weeks ago. Obviously this gun could get past a metal detector, so that poses a threat for all public areas, but there's more than that too.. With the capabilities of a 3D printer that nearly anyone could set up in their own home, this gives terrorists, felons, and mentally unstable people access to weapons. As technology increasingly becomes more advances, only time is holding back people from creating far more destructive weapons. Further, the inventor of the "liberator" said it was made to fight tyranny.. What tyranny is he referring to? It kind of sounds like this gun is meant to be used to attack the government.. I don't want to jump to conclusions here but I don't think the second amendment is worth another civil war. I'm very open to other opinions though, so lemme know what you guys think!
One of the things I didn't want to point out. Please, don't give them ideas.
Who are these mythical "them"? I honestly don't believe we have any terrorist wannabies around here. Just nerds.
But I for sure wouldn't want to be part of his search, resulting in the loss of fingers, hands or worse...
