The new technology is clearly in the wrong, trigger-happy hands. Now that the first metal gun has been created using a 3-D printer and it can fire 50 rounds, there’s no question firearm printing will get only more and more advanced. And it’s not something to take lightly.
It’s unclear whether the North Korean dictator had singer Hyon Song-wol killed by a firing squad, or whether he ever dated her, but it wouldn’t be out of character for the regime; business and journalism are becoming increasingly intertwined; meanwhile, to prevent piracy, a startup has begun to stream 3-D print designs that can be used only once. These discoveries and more after the jump.
Guns produced using 3-D printers have found an opponent in state Sen. Leland Yee, who plans to introduce legislation that would ban in California the use of the do-it-yourself technology to create firearms.
