When will government get a handle on this technology and stop all the FUD? ever?"

    how is your 3D printer going to make gold without some kind of fission reactor?

    You 3D print the fission reactor first. They left that out of the report out of fear of making it too easy. I'm sure the TSA has a report claiming terrorists can print plutonium for a dirty bomb too.
