Today there’s this:
“Transportation Security Administration stopped a man with 3D-printed handgun part in his carry-on baggage at LaGuardia Airport, CBS New York reported. The traveler from Kansas was stopped at a security checkpoint with the weapon July 3. The item included the trigger and body of the gun …”
Not sure why someone would carry the parts in carry-on bags, unless that is all they had.
I don’t think it’s paranoid to say local media is looking for stories to support this legislation.
