Uh-oh. I guess gun control is out the window... and forensics on murder scenes could get pretty tricky now too.

If anyone has ever heard of a 3-D printer - It's pretty much a "printer that can carve a block of metal, plastic or wood into an object...


You can buy these 3D printers for home use,

They can also make working guns....



Homemade guns.



Any Thoughts?

How does it print?

It has 2 or sometimes 3 little arms that have either lasers or razors at the tips that carve whatever you program into the computer

Yes, I know but right now is the time many people are catching on that they can make guns

I didn't know they had gotten that sophisticated to use other mediums and to actually make something with moving parts that can be put together and work. They are pretty expensive but I can totally see an assassin doing that.
