Couriers refuse to ship gun making machine

Two of America's largest courier services are refusing to ship Ghost Gunners, a machine needed to produce guns at home.

The machine, controversial since its inception, produces parts for gun enthusiasts who legally manufacture guns at home.

The parts are still being processed at this Austin-based plant but the distribution may become impossible, and it's putting hundreds of orders on hold across the state of Texas

Although not illegal, both fed-ex and ups are refusing to ship the machines, citing a lack of regulation by the government.

Gun rights advocates say the decision is nothing more than a political move.

The company, Defense Distributed, is looking into alternative ways to ship Ghost Gunners.
