How so? People make guns every day. You'd be surprised. It's nothing that isn't happening right now anyways, just a different way to achieve the same result.

True they would have "easier access", but criminals can get guns fairly easy without a 3D printer anyway.

YOU or anyone for that matter, can easily build your own 3D printer for very low costs.
Take RepRap for instance, there's a guide to building a 3D printer: http://reprapbook.appspot.com/
http://www.webpronews.com/build-your-own-3d-printer-for-under-800-2012-09

Yeah but at least here in America (in the fun states tongue.gif), I can be in and out of a Wal-Mart in less than 30 minutes with a rifle/shotgun and a hundred rounds of ammunition for close to $400. Heck, if you wanted a .22, you could have a rifle and 1000 rounds of ammo for closer to $200 or $300.

No 3 week lead time on stepper motors, no weeks of calibration prints, no firmware issues with arduino boards, no fiddling in CAD, and no end result that only lasts 6 shots.

Even if the 3D printer parts were completely free it's still easier for me to get a firearm elsewhere. Of course this is a completely different story if you have a criminal record or a mental issue. Or if you don't live in America. It's interesting to read the reaction of some of the British posters here because the gun culture is so different.

Or are a felon. Either way it's tons easier to just buy one illegally. Same goes for the UK which have less gun rights; it's still easier to get one illegally then to do this.

Until the day a 12 year old can print one without his parents knowing, nothing changes.

People bypass checks already.

I seriously doubt that 3D printing will cause a rise in violent crime. People that want to commit a violent crime are going to find a way to commit a violent crime. No matter what "checks" you put in their way.

Bring on the 3D printers!

It seems the people who are most suprised and outraged that making firearms is even possible are those who live in places where firearms are illegal.

Ironically where firearms are illegal, it is not the criminal who is most interested in 3D printing a firearm because they already have access to these firearms. It is the hobbyist citizen, who in both fear and envy, ponders the thought of anyone 3D printing a firearm.

Where firearms are legal, those who wish to own them go through background checks and legally buy them. Those who do not wish own them don't. As long as firearms are legal in a place, 3D printing of firearm and firearm parts in that place is an insignificant issue.

yea, this isn't even that much of a big deal to gun owners unless they are those types that swear undying loyalty to wood and bolt action hunting rifles.

Hah I can see it now! These new hunters and their extremely light weight weight resin rifles really piss me off! Those weapons have no soul! I love my hand fashioned wood stock.

Great, I cannot wait for the day I see a team of spec ops in the heat of battle grouped around a printer scratching their heads saying "I sent it to the printer! why has it not printed?!? And what the hell does that red flashing light mean??"

"Have you switched it off and on again, sir?"
