FBI SAYS ‘BOOGALOO’ EXTREMISTS BOUGHT 3D-PRINTED MACHINE GUN PARTS

On 4 November, Wired reported a court case where it is alleged that a West Virginia man disguised the plastic components as wall hangers and sold hundreds of them online.  It says that criminal charges against one West Virginia man suggest that the digital gunsmithing method has been adopted by violent, anti-government domestic extremists: the Boogaloo movement.  Timothy Watson is accused of selling more than 600 3D-printed plastic components of automatic rifles through his website, Portablewallhanger.com.
