War journalist Jake Hanrahan, the founder of independent media platform “Popular Front,” tweeted a video that shows a gun hobbyist firing plastic ammunition from a “100% 3D-printed gun.” 

Hanrahan said gun hobbyist @SuckBoyTony1, who designs and builds 3D-printed firearms that are electronically ignited, created a “working 100% 3D-printed gun.” He continued: “The barrel and even the ammunition is plastic.”
