3D Guns: Recommended by 2 Students

3 D Guns: recommended by a student from M/W 8am and a student from T/Th at 2pm.  Great discovery–I missed it the first time around.  Jan Kollitz

It has been developed and tested in Austin, Texas, and it is now on the radar of every sovereign country in the world. The developer has stated that this technology will put guns in the hands of people in gun free counties, which is a prospect that he endorses because he believes in liberty. What more does 3d printing technology have yet to bring?

This video is causing much uproar on today’s news (5/6/2013–it went viral today.

  1. This is a really crazy thing. I believe this 3D printer is going to cause a lot of harm in our society. I not sure how safe this world can be though, if a person can now print their own gun. At the same it is a way to improve technology but a thing that will give criminals the chance to get there weapons easily and faster.

  2. This is bad! Now there is a easier way for people to get their hands on a gun. What has this world come to.

  3. I believe this 3D printer is going to cause a lot of havoc and harm in our society. There are already too many threats and dangers in the world as it is. Giving people the capability to print weapons so easily sounds way too dangerous.

  4. This is insane. Who would have ever known that this would have became possible? I still find it incredibly amusing and cool that technology has progressed this far, but it is scary to think about the things it could be used for.

  5. This is crazy! Now anyone can get accesses to a gun, if they have a 3D printer. I am more amazed by the 3D printer. That is amazing that you can print things out like that. I never knew that.

  6. That’s kind of cool how the printer can make 3D objects. I not sure how safe this world can be though, if a person can now print their own gun? I hope they create a printer that can copy clothing so I do not have to shop at the store, I could just print it.

  7. I believe that the fact that technology is advancing so rapidly to the point where we can now PRINT our own guns is insane. It is a huge advancement, but at the same time, just because someone has the ability to print a gun does not mean that they should. If people want to harm others, they will find a way and laws are not going to simply stop them from doing so.

    • This is insane and almost unbelievable. It is a scary thought. Like the reporters said what if it gets in the wrong hands. Just because it is something done at home legally does not undermine the fact it is still a deadly weapon.

  8. This is scary. We already have terrorists building bombs from directions they find on the internet now we have guns that can be made at home by anyone. Does Colombine ring any bells? or how about Movie theater shootings? Sometimes technology just isn’t our friend!

  9. I find this really incredible how they are making 3D guns. Like what is the world becoming. You can make guns on your own and your house. The idea of being able to make your own guns is kind of scary because people could be using those guns for bad and not good. They could be using it to kill people and not for protection.

  10. I think that this 3D gun printing is absolutley insane but mind blowing at the same time. Yeah its a way to improve technology but at the same time this will give criminals the chance to get there weapons easily and faster. This will put society in complete chaos.

  11. Smart guy 3d printer. Technology is increasing rapidly. I think that this is good for technology and to brings awareness. Almost anything can be a weapon I don’t understand why guns get so much attention.

  12. Smart guy 3d printer. Technology is increasing rapidly. I think that this is good for technology and to brings awareness. Almost anything can be a weapon I don’t understand why guns get so much attention.

  13. This could be very controversial in regards to society. Because its 3d printing people will find the dimensions out on how to make the gun and criminals will make these guns. Its hard to say if this will help society or hurt it even more.

  14. I already went on my gun rant earlier. Preventing guns to citizens DOESN’T stop crimes in any fucking way. It only creates more drastic events, because people are no longer able to defend themselves. Guns can be used to help or hurt a situation, it’s how the individual uses the tool. A knife could be a weapon, should we prevent people from buying knives? People use knives in murders and robberies more then guns!

  15. Now, if we could just use that 3D printer to mass-produce other 3D printers, and so on, and so on, and so on. This would drive down the cost of the printers considerably. But then they they would charge a fortune for the plastic much like Epson practically gives away their printers but kills you on the ink refills.

  16. I like the idea of 3-d printing. Using this technology demonstrates how much further we can advance the use of printers. Just like anything in the world, it depends on the person to use it the intended way or to abuse it.

  17. Guns are already a widely available commodity to this nation’s criminals, and its citizens. The crazies and criminals will get guns, regardless of what the law says. However, this technology will be able to put guns in the hands of the helpless, such as North Koreans, Cubans, Chinese. This is going to be a revolutionary tool; Oligarchies will fall. It may be hard to believe, but normal people with guns can be trusted. It is the authority figures, who were formerly know as public servants, with guns that scare me. If you believe that banning guns/plastic guns will be a blessing to this nation, then I suggest that you look at Chicago. Its citizens are helpless in the wake of the bad guys with guns. Chicago would not be Chicago if everyone had a little protection. I endorse this new technology.

  18. This is disgusting to me. If all the gun freaks out there have their way, there are just going to be more and more guns, and the number of people who die every day because of guns is going to keep going up.

  19. I cannot believe that the gun actually fired! That’s crazy. To think that one-day we will be able to “print” our goods at home is mind blowing. It seems like this 3d printer will be a good and a bad thing.

  20. Holy crap! How is that even possible? The fact that we have the ability to make guns at home now is incredibly scary. There is no way that this will turn out good because so many kids have access to the internet and will want to print out guns and bombs. This printer seems like it will make the world a whole lot more dangerous and it doesn’t seem like a good idea to have around. The 3d printer however is a magnificentr feet that will propel America into a new era of technology. With that ssort of technology the possibilities are endless. Good or bad; only time will tell.

  21. On 3d printing: Only about $10,000 for all the materials needed to build things… How amazing it is for us to be able to make spare parts for automibiles, organs for people, structures for sheltering the homeless… the list continues. and still yet some would focus on the negative aspects it may bring, perhaps we should focus on regulation and the control of ballistics by making material that absorbs it, with the very technology that is used for making these 3d weapons. We should embrace innovation, and learn to fight back if need be with the ultimate defense; control of ourselves. It starts with caring abut people, and trying to understand what drives some to crime. We need a better prisoner reform system. Hell, we need new policy on social issues of every kind, not to mention the environment, colonizing Mars, and exploiting nano tech.

  22. I have heard of the new technology of the 3D printer and how it can be used to create virtually anything that can be pieced together. This technology is great in many ways but also can be used for other wrong things. The idea of a gun that is not metal and can be assembled so quickly is frightening but also a great advancement for law enforcement.
