[ Reread. I was quoting someone else. It isn't a silly question, it is a matter of liability. Something to be concerned about, as an investor. ]

"No, seriously. You can make a gun with a lathe, a milling machine, and a drill-press. Are the manufacturers of those tools worried about liability for guns built with the tools? I don't think so. And the 3D printer is arguably even more general-purpose than those tools."

I'm not a lawyer, so I don't know. However, it sure seems to me that there would be a greater risk of liability to the manufacturer of a device that can make a gun in one step than there would be to a manufacturer of a machine that can be used to make a single part.
