Australia Fears Finding "Ghost Guns" On Their Streets

“Neither legally or morally do I have concerns about it," says Cody Wilson, the founder of Defense Distributed who created the machine, known as the Ghost Gunner, to print 3-D, untraceable replicas of the AR-15.

Australian authorities are concerned after a handful of Australians expressed interest in purchasing the printing machine, worried that the working replica guns will end up on the streets. Local law enforcement has warned anyone looking to use the machine to produce firearm parts that they could face 20 years in prison.

In 1996, Australia enacted stiff restrictions on semi-automatic weapons after a man went on a killing spree in Tasmania, armed with an AR-15 and other weapons.

Previously, FedEx and UPS declined to ship the printing machines over uncertainty of how American law may regulate it.
