[hackerspaces] US Workshops - Careful With Firearms Manufacturing

I know this only impacts US spaces, but the ATF has finally clarified their
home-built firearms clause (which was just brought to my attention today,
happened a year ago):
to include shared facilities/tools.  In short, you can't allow anyone to
use your equipment to manufacture a firearm without violating a law you
really don't want to violate.

Just an FYI, not making any leanings one way or another (or a statement
about the state of US firearms regulations) but I don't want anyone going
to jail and paying a lot of money because they didn't know about the update
to this law.

Keep hacking,
