True, but it also takes a considerable amount of knowledge to do such a thing. Personally, I can make a radio from a tiny handful of components for pennies, and it just takes a few minutes, and it works. However, I still buy them.

The reliability and accuracy of home-made weapons is notoriously bad, frequently doing more damage to the maker than anyone else, in fact, some plant factories have end their workforce. Metal work and applied chemistry does take knowledge, effort and skill, as well as time and money. If someone is prepared to go to that kind of effort, they can no doubt create a formidable weapon. It doesn't really compare with purchasing a semi-automatic weapon from your local high-street store, manufactured to a high standard to avoid jamming, inaccuracy, etc. etc. though, which you can do as an afterthought, put it on the shopping list: bread, cheese, milk, chai, earl-grey, 9mm semi-automatic.
Go home, have a chai & cheese sandwich. Kill someone.
