If you added gunpowder, would it fire?

If you could print your own gun and bullets, that would be the end of opression everywhere and the biggest fear of government all at once.

I'm just kind of being silly here, but think about it... I'm getting very second amendment here, but, there's a reason they put that stuff in there...

On a m
ore serious vein, would it be possible to design a non lethal printable round? I don't think the accuracy is really good enough for a firearm, and I don't know if the ABS would just shatter into a thousand tiny threads of filament when you shot it, but I'd be interested to find out lol

Haha, I'm pretty sure the ABS would shatter. We have a machine that can print Ultem, which might be a better bet, but I still dunno if it would be strong enough.
