These Things Are Related

It’s a sign of the times, as the song says, and I am very, very glad to be able to see these two stories on Slashdot on the same day.

The first all-plastic entire, functioning firearm has been printed on a 3D printer.  Even if it can only get off one shot, that one shot can be the one that really counts.  No coincidence they named it the Liberator.

Staples, one of the largest office-supplies online retailers out there, has started selling a printer.  A 3D printer.

Either get good at the 3D file creation now, or get ready to be deemed to be in “constructive possession” mode pretty quick here.
