3D Printed Guns are a Real Fucking Thing.

I recently posted about 3D printing and how in the near future end users will have the capability of printing house hold items instead of having to go and purchase them at a store. Little to my knowledge people are already developing ways to print guns at their homes with 0 regulation. You can literally go to websites such as DEFCAD.com and download the blue prints for weapons and print them in your home. Check out the Vice.com piece on Cody Wilson.

Cody R Wilson has figured out how to print a semi-automatic rifle from the comfort of his own home. Now he’s putting all the information online so that others will join him.

This is a story about the rapid evolution of a technology that has forced the American legal system to play catch up. Cody Wilson, a 24 year old University of Texas Law student, is an advocate for the open source production of firearms using 3D printing technology. This makes him a highly controversial figure on both sides of the gun control issue. MOTHERBOARD sat down with Cody in Austin, Texas to talk about the constitution, the legal system, and to watch him make and test-fire a 3D-printed gun.
