3-D printers could be the next major revolution in manufacturing after Assembly Line. With creating amazing stuff like jewelry and housewares to even a 3D printed car, 3-D printing is already taking the manufacturing world by storm. But, there are some controversies surrounding the 3-D printers and this time it involves a 3D printed gun.
According to claims by its maker Peter Alaric DeSimone, this 3D printed gun is as legal as it can get. He emphasizes that his gun is not a firearm, but an airgun, so it clears the norms under current Arm Regulations.
Peter explains that developing a gun is merely a retortion against the ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulation) updates. Also unimpressed with the current US President intervening the constitutional rights of the citizens, Alaric wrote on his website
Here’s a video by DeSimone showing how the 3D printed gun is made and its working and why did he chose to make one.
Making 3D printed gun at home has sparked a debate nationwide. Though it is just created as protestation to Mr. Obama’s policies, it still is a weapon and can be improvised and used by the anyone with malicious intents.
Protests for a good cause are beneficial for the society, but Guns, no way. This 3D printed gun could cast down 3-D printing, creating a negative social image of such a wonderful technology.
