OPINION: Should we allow 3D printed guns?
3D printed guns already infiltrated Utah, a Utahn planned to shoot a school using a 3D printed gun is now behind bars. We are not immune.
I understand the freedom of speech claims. But I also understand that it is illegal to yell fire in a crowded theater. There does come a point when the danger outweighs the freedom.
Should we allow 3D printed guns?
How did we get here, according to KSL News Radio?
A federal judge in Seattle has blocked the posting of 3-D printed guns online. Washington state sued after the Trump Administration okayed the instructions going onto the web. The company that made the instructions says their rights are being violated.
Also, a South Jordan man has been charged with a misdemeanor after being accused of threatening to use a 3D printed gun to shoot students at Broadview University. A Jail report says Austin James David West texted and told other students about a mass shooting that “people would be talking about.” Those messages were passed on to the school, and then police served a warrant at West’s home where they seized a 3D printer.
