People have figured out how to print a semi-automatic rifle from the comfort of their own home. Now they’re putting all the information online so that others will join them.

This is a story about the rapid evolution of a technology that has forced the American legal system to play catch up. Cody Wilson, a 25 year old University of Texas Law student, is an advocate for the open source production of firearms using 3D printing technology.
