RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)- While the debate continues about banning certain types of guns, a Texas group says it's found a way to make it easier for anyone to get one.
This week, Defense Distributed released a video claiming to have created a working plastic gun you can print at home.
This is technology that could bypass laws and allow anyone to get a gun. All you need is a 3D printer. Those printers are sold online and quickly coming down in price.
It's called a "wiki weapon." Defense Distributed has been testing parts and posting videos for the last year. Before this weekend, they had only tested parts separately - including the lower receiver. That's the part of the gun that is licensed. It has a serial number. If you can make the receiver, then you've essentially got the gun.
