Timelapse of the 3d printed gun being printed.

The main problem is that this gun is made of plastic and contains only very little metal and thus can’t be reliably detected by a metal detector i.e. at an airport. That’s way this type of gun is problematic even in the USA where everyone can buy a gun without any special permission. In many other countries you need a special permission to buy a gun and a 3D-printed gun allows bypassing this laws by printing your own gun. Maybe it is better to restrict access to ammunition instead of guns because producing ammunition requires access to explosive chemicals, which can easier be controlled than 3D printers.
