I am of two minds on Cody Wilson and his Liberator, built by a 3D-printable CAD file and ABS plastic on a Dimension SST printer from printing firm Stratasys. I doubt Cody will use his gun in a crime, but should this technology be widespread, malicious actors will. And I imagine the Liberator is untraceable:

On the other hand/mind, I like freedom, rugged individualism, and self-reliance. Still, I see laws banning this sort of activity in our future, notably from Congressman Steve Israel.
Cuomo AR-15 Mag
Defense Distributed’s Cody WIlson is currently testing a printed magazine for your AR-15 rifle, known (tongue-in-cheek) as the Cuomo. I wonder how the New York Governor Andrew Cuomo feels about having this kind of gear named after him. Considering that he just barred ammunition magazines that hold more than seven rounds. Of which, the NRA said: Cuomo seized the opportunity to exploit tragedy and put his own personal politics ahead of sound public policy. I agree, the Governor is a Cuomoist.
Of Wired Magazine’s 15 Most Dangerous People in the World, perhaps Cody Wilson is one among a couple of names that are not immediately familiar:
Cody Wilson, Defense Distributed, Wiki Weapon, 3-d printed gun
To earn his dangerous title, Cody started printing a 3-D gun on a Stratasys printer. But the company confiscated the gear, pronto. . .
