Defense Distributed Gets License To Manufacture Firearms

Defense Distributed, the organization set up to explore the use of 3D printers for decentralized production of firearms so that their ownership can be put further beyond the reach of government, has acquired a license to manufacture firearms. The license will ease the group's efforts to develop workable plans that can then be distributed online to end users who have access to 3D printers. In particular, Defense Distributed wil be able to sell some of the guns it makes to gain additional financing for its efforts.

Which should please Sen. Dianne Feinstein to no end.
