Don’t Understand The 3D Printed Gun Controversy? Watch This DocumentaryBy: Zach Walton - March 25, 2013
3D printed guns were viewed as more or less a curiosity when they first started to gain mainstream exposure last year. It wasn’t until the tragedies at Aurora and Sandy Hook that 3D printed firearms became a full blown controversy with gun control advocates calling for the renewal of the Undetectable Firearms Act, and opponents, namely Defense Distributed, pushing the boundaries of 3D printed weaponry.
It’s this latter party – Defense Distributed – that’s at the center of a recent documentary from Vice Magazine’s Motherboard. Cody Wilson, head of the non-profit organization, talks about Defense Distributed, his views on gun control and where 3D printers are headed.
You will either hate Wilson, or think he’s the only person standing in the way of tyranny . Either way, this is one of the best films you can watch about the 3D printed firearm revolution as seen through the eyes of one of its most outspoken proponents.
