Yep. Guns are pretty simple devices. You don't even need to muck about with black powder, cordite or other 'explosives'. Some snipers in WWI used air rifles.

As sickipedia said, it's cheaper to buy an AK47 than to buy the HP cartridges to print your own.

Erm...it's Sickipedia. I don't think anything there should be taken seriously.

The first non-prototype-metal printer I could find US$ 750,000 approx. There are cheaper metal printers but these cant print in stainless steel only a cheaper weaker alloy.
Plus materials/power/misc = $5,000
So thats $755,000 or £471,573.20 BEFORE you even start to print.
Lets assume (big assumption as I have no idea if this is true) you can buy a hand gun for £100.
Hmmmmm everybody panic, criminals can print guns!!

I imagine a box of fireworks (£10ish), a steel tube (£5 at most) and some fishing shot (£2) could make you a pretty deadly shotgun. I'm not going to lose any sleep over this "news"
