Lots of folks will get confused and believe it is now okay to manufacture one of these guns which to my understanding would be illegal unless you go through proper federal paperwork channels and include a serial number on the newly manufactured gun. Would there also be a difference between the mere manufacture and possession of such a gun vs. manufacture of the gun for sale?
My understanding is making these guns was and is legal. Just as slam fire shotguns and other homemade guns (assuming they are not full auto) is and has been legal. The issue at hand in the case was providing the data files to the public.

Selling them would require you to have all the requisite licenses, or be in tremendously hot water.
