After my father went to a nursing home at the age of 88, I found his old Enfield gun hidden somewhere in his house. He had a license to carry this gun. When I asked the authorities to get a license for this gun to keep it as a souvenir, the procedure was so complicated so I immediately gave up and gave it to the police so they will get rid of it.
Obviously this situation is going to change quiet soon. 3D printing is going to change the way people get guns. They can 3D print their guns now as I wrote about it (HERE) few days ago
And today I read that someone already started to print bullets for guns. Is there anybody still in doubt that humanity is on slippery downhill path to shoot itself on the head?
See HERE this article and video of “It Was Only A Matter Of Time Before We Got 3D Printed Bullets”
As with any new technology people some times can take it to direction not foreseen by the developer of this new technology.
Alfred Nobel is a good example. He never expected that the Dynamite he invented would be used to explode other people.
Nowadays its 3D printing which is taking unexpected turns and directions.
A wonderful example is this invention of 3D printing of mechanical hands to help people.
But on the other direction is this 3D printing of a gun which can destabilize society.
What would be your next 3D printing project to help humanity?
