How difficult is it to assassinate a prime minister within the highly-secured Knesset compound? Not too difficult, it appears, as new technology enables one to sneak inside with a 3D-printed hand-gun.
A Channel 10 camera crew tested the theory and managed to walk in to the Knesset twice, carrying a plastic pistol printed according to easily downloadable blueprints.
An investigative report by the Tzinor Laila program with Guy Lehrer aired on Wednesday showed how easily a gun, on all its parts, can be printed and assembled.
he gun was then tested in a professional shooting range under the supervision of police Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Dan Ronen, and successfully fired a live bullet at a cardboard target.
The crew was ready to test how prepared security arrangements are for this new kind of threat. The first time, the plastic gun was snuck by the show's reporters into the offices of the Knesset Interior Committee Chairwoman Miri Regev.
The second, reporter Uri Even managed to carry the gun into an event in the Knesset compound, attended by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The reporter passed all the security checks, including a metal detector, and got only a few feet away from the prime minister without being accosted. . .

Or the ol' standby...
I did a ton of Indians and outlaws in with these when I was much younger.
Your the sort of thinker that kept me up lots of nights when I was active duty EOD....:o)
That’s Ted Kaczynski thinking right there....
Stay safe !
Hmmmm...plastic weapon, piezo ignition, no primer, no powder.
Oh, yeah, you’re talking spud guns. Trailing edge technology. Kids have been making them for a decade or more. 3D printer meh.
Spud gun piezo - seek and ye shall find. Videos even.
Ban journalists. They seem to be the ones trying to take things where they don't belong.
Does it fire a plastic bullet as well? I’m assuming they just got the plastic gun itself in. If there was a bullet in it I’m assuming it would of had to be a plastic one otherwise they just got the gun in. If the bullets are still made of metal they would of never have gotten so far.
As far as I know there was no bullet. If the pistol had been loaded it would cease being a journalistic stunt.
