3D printers are an amazing step forward in technology. I still find it hard to wrap my head around the possibility of printing out my own shoes or a wrench or well, almost anything. The possibilities of a 3D printer leave my jaw wide open and gaping. (How about replacement body parts? A new kidney? They’re working on it.)
Do we really want to be able to make guns at home on a 3D printer?
The first 3D home-printed gun has been fired, and so that horse is out of the barn. Now anyone with a computer and a 3D printer can make a gun. Many guns. Many undetectable plastic guns.
Again… a 3D printer is amazing. The possibilities for its future are astounding.
