Starting August 1, you can 3D print a gun

Last week, the Department of Justice made it legal to produce guns with a 3D printer in a settlement with gun-printing startup Defense Distributed.

The ruling is the result of multi-year crusade spearheaded by gun-rights evangelist Cody Wilson and allows Defense Distributed to post detailed blueprints for ‘ghost guns’ — which are untraceable, unregistered, and DIY for anyone with access to a 3D printer.

After winning the settlement, Defense Distributed relaunched its comprehensive gun encyclopedia, DEFCAD, which features guns ranging from AR-15s to Berettas. The website is open for uploads and will allow for downloads starting in August.

To reduce the number of mass shootings in America (where gun deaths are 25x higher than other high-income countries), politicians are debating ways to control gun ownership.

Suggestions range from background checks, bans on assault weapons, minimum age requirements, and ‘red flag’ warning systems — all of which are impossible if anonymous gunsmiths can download and print untraceable guns
