The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms’ (ATF) test of the famed “Liberator” 3D-printed handgun resulted in a gun that itself exploded. On Wednesday, the American federal agency released three videos and a photo of its Liberator, which was created in conjunction with the Transportation Security Administration and the FBI. “The bottom line is, the penetration results demonstrated that the Liberator is a lethal weapon,” Earl Griffith, chief of ATF’s firearms technology branch, said at a press conference, according to the Huffington Post. “The .380 bullets fired from the Liberator penetrate sufficiently to reach vital organs and perforate the skull.”
