Talk about a hustler. A Houston man just figured out an easy way to earn $3,000 and make a point about buyback programs at the same time.

The man used his home 3-D printer to print small firearms using freely-available schematics he found online. Most of the printed guns weren’t even full guns (image of printed guns above), only parts, mainly the receiver of a gun.

As the Twitter thread below shows, most people were happy to hear about someone getting one over on the governments “No Questions Asked” buyback program.

As for the guy that sold the 3-D printed guns, he apparently wasn’t out to make a profit but to prove these buyback programs are wasting money purchasing broken and pieces of guns.

From the sound of it, can’t say he’s wrong about that.

A spokesperson from the mayor’s office responded by stating,

“The community response was robust and we also learned that in future gun buybacks, we will need to establish some guidelines regarding Privately Manufactured Firearms,”

Ya think?
