angry tapir writes: The police force of Australia's largest state has issued a warning about the potential for 3D printed guns to be used in crimes. The NSW police revealed that they had downloaded and printed multiple 'Liberator' pistols and conducted ballistics testing with them. They experienced one catastrophic misfire, but also managed to simulate a probably fatal shot. The police said that the government may have to examine regulations that address the issues surrounding 3D printed weapons.
"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity
is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth.
