it is in no way a felony for someone to make(Including print) their own firearm. the problem comes if you try to sell that firearm.
from the atf website:
For your information, per provisions of the Gun Control Act (GCA) of 1968, 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44, an unlicensed individual may make a “firearm” as defined in the GCA for his own personal use, but not for sale or distribution.

Individuals manufacturing sporting-type firearms for their own use need not hold Federal Firearms Licenses (FFLs). However, we suggest that the manufacturer at least identify the firearm with a serial number as a safeguard in the event that the firearm is lost or stolen. Also, the firearm should be identified as required in 27 CFR 478.92 if it is sold or otherwise lawfully transferred in the future.

looking at it from a programming standpoint, we have laws prohibiting cruel and unusual punishment. to me the most important word in there is AND. Both conditions would have to be true for it to be excluded. If we catch a mass murderer who uses a chain saw as his weapon of choice, and take his victims as a sample set, it may be extremely cruel to use a chainsaw to execute him, but it is certainly usual, so it would pass the test as a valid method of punishment
