Man makes firearm with 3D printer

The Pirate Bay now hosts 3D blueprints
Apparently a man used a Stratasys 3D printer to get together parts for a .22 - and yes it works. He also made a .223 upper and attached it to the lower, and has fired over 200 rounds from the firearm with 0% failure. Also, ThePirateBay is opening a portion of it's board for 3D blueprint torrents. Gun control -> lol

You don't need a license to manufacture a firearm if it is for personal use (not resale) and are legally able to posses it otherwise.

Not licensed = illegal http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/manufacturers.html

Printing your own gun is pretty impossible, due to you not being able to 'print' rifling (required for any level of accuracy) in a barrel, the 'printed' barrel not being able to withstand the heat and pressure of a round being fired (there's a reason why they are made out of metal).

Also, he only printed a lower receiver, which deals with pretty much none of the pressure that the upper deals with. If he 'printed' an upper, it would explode in his face (again, there's a reason upper receivers are made out of metal).
