3D Printed Guns Now Illegal In Philadelphia

/ 7 years ago


Personally, I thought 3D printed guns were already illegal, given that their not licences, incredibly dangerous to the user (they tend to explode when fired), not to mention the fact that they’re cheap and practically untraceable. However it looks like I was wrong, and Philadelphia has just stepped up and banned 3D printed guns their state.

Now it is not like there is a 3D printed plastic gun war happening right now, especially since The Liberator 3D printed gun is currently the popular choice, which is to say the least a bit rubbish, no big surprise really as it is a gun made from plastic after all. This ban is more a preventative measure, staying ahead of the curve as 3D printing becomes more mainstream, and the technology improves.

It is good to see a legal system paying attention to such trends, but maybe this one is a tad pre-emptive.
