(Wired) Americans want guns without serial numbers. And apparently, they want to make them at home.
On Wednesday, Cody Wilson's libertarian non-profit Defense Distributed revealed the Ghost Gunner, a $1,200 computer-controlled (CNC) milling machine designed to let anyone make the aluminum body of an AR-15 rifle at home, with no expertise, no regulation, and no serial numbers. Since then, he's sold more than 200 of the foot-cubed CNC mills—175 in the first 24 hours. That's well beyond his expectations; Wilson had planned to sell only 110 of the machines total before cutting off orders.
