As suspected he sells 3D printers and money is more important to him than the safety of the human race.

@Marine, the only safety issue involved is the safety of the hand of anyone stupid enough to try shooting a 3D printed gun.

BTW, Aluminum isn't detected by metal detectors, and while aluminum isn't strong enough to make guns from, if you add a few parts per million of the rare earth element Scandium the alloy is quite strong enough. Smith & Wesson has been making small, concealable revolvers like this for years.

It is stupid to worry about this. 3D printers use materials that can't handle the stress of a bullet being fired. At best, you'd get one shot before it blew up and took your hand with it. Plus, of course, the fact that you can currently make a simple gun without a 3D printer makes this ludicrous.

The only 3D printer I know was used in a previous job to build prototypes for our products. In other words, the printer builds a physical mockup that will resemble the mechanical shape so customers can see first hand how the product is going to look like. Best to my knowledge, a 3D printer may produce a very realistic gun that actually is nothing but a toy.

I'm waiting for a mass shooting that targets a bunch of rich people. Gun laws would change pronto.

This is really stupid to allow. I cannot believe this guy and the only reason I can see for it is money somewhere to be made from it. Most likely he sells 3 d printers.
