3d printed gun

Yes, you can 3-D print a firearm.

Solid Concepts, a specialty manufacturing company, said it 3-D printed a handgun and fired more than 50 rounds from it -- even hitting a few bullseyes at more than 30 yards.

The gun was made with an industrial 3-D printer. Desktop printers that you can buy at Staples aren't going to start cranking out guns anytime soon, and there are laws to protect against making plastic guns.
