3D Printed Gun in News

Good news: Prohibited person tried to buy a gun and failed; his 3D printed AR-15 receiver still came to police attention; he was convicted.

Bad news: bad PR.
After officers handcuffed McGinnis, they inspected his backpack, where they found the loaded partially 3D printed gun and a list titled “9/11/2001 list of American Terrorists.” The list included office and home addresses of federal lawmakers from both political parties.
“A subsequent forensic analysis of Mr. McGinnis’ electronic devices by U.S. Capitol Police suggests Mr. McGinnis had a strong interest in James Hodgkinson, the shooter who wounded Rep. Steve Scalise and several others at a GOP Congressional baseball practice in Virginia in June 2017,” the Justice Department said.
