That, of course, is Defense Distributed's Liberator 3D printer pistol design.  OK, thought I - this will be an interesting presentation.  Indeed it was.


I also got a chance to see a Liberator up close, and it reinforced my view that I absolutely don't want to shoot it.  The gasses from the chamber leak out the hole where the trigger protrudes, and so you might burn your hand even if you were wearing gloves.  Ouch.  Gives renewed meaning to the expression "kills on one end, maims on the other".
