McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. (AP) — An inspection of voting machines in a heavily Republican county in Pennsylvania had been poised to go forward Friday until an 11th-hour appeal to the state Supreme Court by lawyers for Democratic Gov.

A Weyburn man, 26, is facing eight charges after police raided his home and allegedly found a pair of 3-D printed guns and other weapons. A 3-D printer creates gun parts by depositing thin slices of material — such as plastics, metals or ceramics — and building the object up layer by layer. Weapons created using this method still fall under the Firearms Act. Police say the guns would have been untraceable if used in a crime. There was search at the man's home in November, but he wasn't arrested
