Mention the words "3D printed guns" and you’ve got an instant, increasingly heated debate on your hands. When you consider there were 16 mass shootings—defined as a shooting with multiple, random victims—in 2012 with at least 88 people dead including children, it’s definitely a topic worth discussing.
My take? No one needs a 3D printed gun or the ability to create one.
Obviously, it’s not that simple. Gun control in general is not a black-and-white issue, so it follows that printed guns would be an equally gray area.
The focus of this post will be on printed guns, but it is difficult to separate the conversation from gun control in general. Having just read my thoughts on printed guns, it’s pretty easy to deduce my viewpoints on gun control. I grew up in an area where hunting is a big sport, so there were always guns around, accompanied by people who knew how to use them. I respect that, but when it comes to assault weapons, I’m all for the creation of a more effective ban, so it follows that I don’t see a need for the option to print your own AR-15.
