The Trump Administration has granted Defense Distributed, a Libertarian group, the right to publish its blueprints for an untraceable, single-shot plastic handgun called “The Liberator” on the internet.
As a result, Americans will now be able to download blueprints enabling them to make guns at home with a 3-D printer. These do-it-yourself firearms have been nicknamed “Ghost Guns” because they don’t have serial numbers and are untraceable. How is permitting the publication of the plans to construct these guns a good idea?
The founder of Defense Distributed says that his company will also be publishing blueprints for semiautomatic guns like the AR-15.
Is this what Trump and his supporters mean when the claim to be making America great again?
