3D printed gun maker Cody Wilson defends freedom to print guns

Cody Wilson, 26, founded Defense Distributed in 2012 for the explicit purpose of demonstrating how 3D printers can produce working plastic handguns as well as replacement parts for existing rifles.

Wilson, a former student of the University of Texas School of Law, posted the plans for his Liberator gun online for anyone to download. Although the US government forced him to remove the plans last year, the Genie was already out of the bottle. The CAD drawings had been downloaded tens of thousands of times.

Wilson has been described as a "free-market anarchist", and Wired magazine named him one of 'The 15 Most Dangerous People in the World'.
