Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer predicts that terrorist's will have a gun factory in their garage after the world's first 3-D-printed handgun was successfully fired in Texas.

Gun creator, Cody Wilson, fired the weapon - which he calls "the Liberator." A weapon made using an $8,000 3-D printer - and according to Wilson, less than $60 in other materials.
