The 1st 3D printed gun is here. Gun control is now impossible.

The 1st all-plastic gun (except nail for firing pin) is now ready for download to your 3D printer. 
The (almost) all-plastic 3D-printed Liberator pistol was announced by Defense Distributed late last week, but with the gun's blueprints and construction details now live on the company's own DefCAD design site, it's also released a video taken during its testing. In front of a Forbes onlooker, the clip apparently shows a 0.380 caliber bullet being fired by the Liberator.

The only non-plastic part of the design is a common nail, which acts as the firing pin. Defense Distributed's founder Cody Wilson has worked over a year on the project, apparently citing the one-shot pistols that were designed to be air-dropped over France during World War II as inspiration -- also called the Liberator. This modern version is, however, formed of 15 components made inside a Stratasys Dimension SST 3D printer. The video of the test shot and more details are right after the break.

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the
expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress
on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard great things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!
