  • Unless there is a way to regulate who prints a gun, then yes they should be illegal.

    The whole point of having guns regulated by the law is to keep them out of peoples hands that would use them in a crime of passion, among other things. If people can just by pass laws for getting gun then why does it matter to have those laws? I understand that printed guns dont last as long as manufactured guns but they can still kill.

  • No way to track these guns

    These guns are made out of plastic, meaning that someone can use carry these guns through security. These guns can be taken apart and be put back together, and can fire numerous rounds. The key component of a regular gun has been printed and it works fine. These guns are a clear danger and are impossible to trace or track. 3D printers and the material used to make these guns (some sort of plastic) are extremely expensive, but extra precautions should be taken in the case of these undetectable and untraceable guns.

  • Yes, it's different with printing.

    Gun control can be debated against when we're dealing going to the shop and buying such weapons. Someone now could purchase a printer and print up a firearm or parts of a firearm without anyone's knowledge. It wont be a problem for now, since 3d printers are fairly expensive, but later on I think it will. Perhaps the designers could create some way of prohibiting the patterns and styles of firearm and firearm parts.

  • Three word title.

    Although guns like the new Liberator could be dangerous, making them illegal won't solve anything. If criminals actually started using these to bypass security, they would have guns, and everyone else won't. If this actually becomes a problem, almost all forms of gun control will have to be stopped for the safety of everyone. At that point, the only one who can protect you is yourself. This is a terrible gun with only one shot anyway, so it's not like it's possible to mass murder with it. After using your single shot, you'd be screwed.

    Also, we have always had the right to make guns.

  • The Same Principle of Prohibition Failure Applies Here Too

    The story is always the same. Whether it's drugs, alcohol, or abortions, prohibitions always lead to one thing: a black market for the prohibited item. Each of the prohibitions stated above created a black market.

    The same goes for guns, and ergo, 3D guns as well. Making guns illegal will just give the black market more money and power - more crimes will be committed, and there will be no decrease in the amount of murders; in fact, there may even be more murders than before.

    The same principle applies for 3D guns. The new prohibition on them will just create a thriving black market for them, which is easier than ever now that the files needed for the object can all be placed on the computer. No murders will be stopped, and the law will be useless.

  • No, they should not be illegal

    Prohibition always leads to crime. As soon as people are denied access to 3D printed guns, a black market would develop and probably cause the public more trouble than if the guns were legal. Therefore I think they should be legal, but have strict laws that limit their use to prevent large amounts of crime occurring.

  • 3d printing makes it impossible to regulate the making of anything.

    Face it. 3d printing is the end of regulation of individuals unless you regulate the access to the printers and materials themselves. You can print guns, drugs, organs, modified plant parts, chemicals, parts for machines and use designs that can be redily modified for unlimited experimentation. New 3d machines are printing in steel and biological material. Resolution down to nano particle size are available. Deconstructing an item and then replicating it will become extremely common practice.

  • The basic facts

    3d printing is NOT just downloading a 3d model and clicking print and you have a firearm. It does not make guns anymore accessible to the general public than before. The equivalent of the Liberator handgun could be made with one trip to Home Depot and less than $10. If you can 3d print firearm parts and assemble a gun then you could easily build it with alternate methods. The argument that they are not detectable is moot because the ammunition will always be metal.

  • No they should not be illegal.

    If a person had any criminal intention with using a 3d printed gun, it would cost them a lot of money and time, and by the time it was done being made, they most likely would have changed their minds or moved on to a different plan. Since they can not have added speed attachments they are less dangerous then real guns.

  • Way of selfdefense

    Good way for poor people to have some thing for self defense,also you think plastic gun can kill 22 kid like in sandy hoax, it a single shot plastic gun,not that accurate........... And if you want to ban any of my gun I will kindly give it to you, but first you have to pry it from my cold dead hand

  • I think is is fine

    Technology is always moving forward and you can stop everything. The government only want to ban it so that the larger companies can be taxed selling and making their guns. People have freedom of speech. Why don't people have freedom of information. For example people in the UK cannot watch American shows legally as they are aired except in some rare cases

  • No, they shouldn't.

    No more than normal manufactured guns should be. There should certainly be standards, regulation and safety protocols in place to quality check the finished product, but all in all? No, they should not be illegal. It is a valid and progression form of production and just needs a little bit of oversight.
