Should information on 3 D printing of guns be available to the public? Honestly in my opinion I think we shouldn't release the information how to 3 D print guns to the public. As it says in the article, "we could easily damage both amendments". This means we could not only be force to remove the gun blue prints ,but we could have a high chance in making people confused. People who are confused are trying to protect the first two amendments. Any form of expression is presumably protected by the first amendments. This is why we need our amendments and not 3 D guns.
In today's world, guns have become a big argument. Now is the question of info over 3D printing guns be available to the public. I personally don't believe that it should be legal. Were having to many problems with gun arguments at the moment and adding a potentially new problem could make it much worse. Letting everyone be able to see this info wouldn't come out to be a great thing. I personally don't think that it being legal could come out positive in any way. In the article it is said that 3D printing has improved countless lives, it doesn't say anything about saving lives or anything like that. They also say that it could lead to a weakening of guns and speech laws. It shouldn't have an impact on either one of those. It wouldn't be very safe either, how are you gonna know whose manufacturing guns all the time and more would possibly be sold on the street, wouldn't make me feels more safe personally.
Information about 3-D printed guns should not be available to the public because that information could fall into the hands of someone whose intent is harmful. Safety for the community is at stake. Background checks and other precautions need to taken when a gun is purchased. Fear and ignorance is not the issue. It's a concern for safety that is panicking the community. For their loved ones and children who may have to face the consequences when a 3-D gun is used to harm and not to protect.
I am not for releasing information on 3D printing of guns.I feel there is no reason what so ever to need to know how to make an automatic weapon in today's world with all the mass shootings that have occurred in the last five years.I truly feel that if you wanted an automatic weapon in america you could get whatever you wanted on the street,and i see that as a problem therefor why should we as a whole,make it easier for people to get access to these guns.well some might say it doesn't hurt anything to let the public have access to this information because its not actually a gun but what they don't understand is its not hard to make the real thing when you have all the measurements to every peace on the gun.
i think that they should make you have to have a license to produce such things for instance any sort of weapon should require a license to access the information. that way no criminal could make weapons with 3d-printers and also it doesn't completely restrict the making of gun and weapons in 3d-printers.
The public should know about information on 3D printing so that we can all realize the pros and cons of it. Being told about a subject is not illegal that is apart of the first amendment (freedom of speech). I feel that everyone should have the right to see and learn about information on 3D printing guns so everyone can realize the dangers of it. I do not think that 3D printing guns should be legal because then gun access would be even easier than it already is. If 3D printing becomes a regular event then felons have an easier chance to guns and unstable, emotional, or suicidal people would have access to get a gun easier. If guns are easier to get then more and more people would be having guns on them. More guns means more violence, so if 3D printing became a thing I think the nation would have a higher crime rate. Guns would also be a lot cheaper if you could just 3D print them. People would print and resell guns for cheap if all you had to do was print them to get more. Guns would then be mass produced and cheaper because there would be an abundance of guns. Everything about 3D printing guns sounds like a bad idea to me.
I do not believe that three D guns should be open to the public. I am not a believer of any type of weapon being open to the public. With the crime rates only going up and getting worse I don't think people should be allowed to practically download guns. Whether it is legal or not. There have been debates here on gun control and I feel that this would only make things more intense. Which is the last thing this country needs. Anything involving gun plans shouldn't be open to the public.
In my opinion, the information on 3D-printed guns should not be available to the public. I do not agree with this because if everyone in public was able to use this information, a large fraction would take advantage of it, and the end result would be chaotic. We do have the right to bear arms, but we need detectable weapons so that the government will have a greater chance of keeping people safe. They need to know who has which gun. People will argue that other weapons, for example, are illegal, such as land mines, bombs, and booby traps, yet there are books and websites that will show ou how to make them. Although this is true, this is a problem that can be avoided and should be controlled. This will ensure a greater possibility of safety.
Should 3D printed guns be allowed? In my personal opinion I believe that we should not allow this for many reasons. I am aware of our constitutional rights; however, the laws were put into place hundreds of years ago and laws change all the time. The most important reason I feel that the guns shouldn't be printed is because how could we keep track of all the guns printed. So many problems could arise from this; terrorist groups could get guns even easier than what they already can. And people who want to do harm to others could also get their hands on guns easy as well. The real truth is that guns are only good in the right hands and if we can't control who's hands we put them in then aren't we dooming ourselves? America is already having so many problems with gun violence so why in the wold would we allow guns to become even more obtainable.
We the people live in a world that experiences many occasions of violence and unlawful acts. With the new, advanced idea of 3D printed guns, many have bias opinions towards the subject. There are certainly some positives from the idea since it is a outline and/or plan for gun manufacturing companies to look at and build from, but it can also be taken advantage of and used for the wrong use. In the hands of the wrong person, this can be used to engage in something dangerous. I believe the government , the military and task forces that operate with guns should have the ability to use this tactic , but only under the right circumstances. As of giving anyone/everyone this advantage, I would disagree with that idea due to the crimes that have been committed that involved guns. Gun use in the hands of the wrong holders, has caused many issues in the world lately. This could just make it worse.
I think that the information on how to 3d print guns should be available to the public to an extent. I say this because there are people in today's world who aren't able to purchase guns in a normal gun store because of their criminal background. The information on how to print a 3d gun should not be put out as one code to print a gun but in separate codes for each gun that is going to be printed. What i mean by this is if you want to print a gun you should have to go to a gun store and purchase a code to be able to print a gun. I also think that once you print a gun with a certain code then you cant print out any more unless you buy another code.
In my opinion the information needed to print 3D guns should not be available for the public for simple reasons. One reason is that it should be illegal is that unregistered guns are illegal and they are for a good reason. Guns are registered and sold from shops so that they can not fall into the wrong hands. every time a gun is bought from a shop there is a background check done on the buyer so that the gun does not fall into the wrong hands and used for harm. with a 3D printed gun you don't have to go through a background check, and the gun cannot be traced back to where it was distributed from.
Everyone in the current media seems to be so flustered about the idea of a home made "untraceable" weapon. The thing is, there is nothing new about this. I can go home right now and google, "how to make a pipe bomb" and i'll get millions of different techniques and ingredients. Yet when the idea of this brad new dangerous opportunity to get a home made weapon appears everyone freaks out. If we are going to take down this file that gives us the blue prints to make a 3d printed gun, then the only fair thing to do would be to take down all the other DIY weapons such as, a rifle, crossbow, bow, a variety of melee weapons, pipe bombs, nail bombs, Molotov cocktails, and the list goes on. To simply segregate these files as if they are the lone way to get a weapon that's untraceable is completely wrong which brings me to the next point.
If I were sitting at home and thinking to myself, "I want an untraceable weapon to hurt someone," i'm not going to go to the nearest store to buy a 500-800 dollar 3d printer. Even if i were so inclined to spend this large amount of money, which modern day Americans would have enough trouble acquiring, i would still then have to buy the software needed to even be able to run the file and print it off. So in total, you're looking at almost a 1,000 dollar investment to print off this gun which isn't near as accessible as some people may seem to think. If someone wanted to get an untraceable weapon i think they would take their 30 dollar run at home depot over my 1,000 dollar time consuming project to get my "easily accessible firearm."
Information on 3D printing guns should not be available to the public. First, This information should not be available to the public, because at the moment we are struggling with gun control.Second, by letting people have this information, we will not likely be able to have full control on firearms. Third, 3D printing can cause a high increase on gun violence. Fourth, In society right now, gun violence is a big attribute in protesting and higher rate of crime. Finally, as you can see, information about 3D printing should not be available to the public.
The information and blueprints on 3D printed firearms should without a doubt be released to the public. Based on a few criterias such as all other blue prints of anything ever made also for research and learning purposes and finally just simply the first amendment. A blue print is simply a design and measurements of something a piece of paper or spread sheet in this case can cause no harm and because a blue print for a grenade or any other firearm online is not illegal neither should this be. Secondly how in the world will we know what a 3D printed gun looks like if no one has blue prints. how can we learn anything about them or research the problem with it if there is no where to start. Lastly plain as day Freedom Of Speech and press means any press or anything you say is legal in our country. So just as the News can make fun our countries president and Snoop Dog can pretend to kill him in a music video then some words and a picture of a plastic gun should be just fine.
Should 3D printed guns information be available to the public? 3D printing guns information should not be available to the public because the public should not be able to make their own gun. They could build their gun to powerful and hurt themselves or others, or make the gun illegally. In the article, it says "3D printing is an incredible emergent technology that has improved countless lives." My opinion it shouldn't matter if they've improved countless lives, people could make the gun illegally and use it as a weapon. People who try to order or buy the 3D printing gun you should have a background check or health check to see if you are stable enough to own a 3D printed gun.
Do I as a citizen think 3D gun printing information should be given to thee general public? Well, I think there should be many requirements for that specific consideration. This isn't a new concept, it's been up in the air for years now. It is very illegal, in order to carry a gun I think it needs to be able to be detected by a metal detector so every one around you knows what you're carrying. The more higher up such as, law enforcers, congress and people of that specific nature should have access to the 3D gun files so they can understand a what they are and are not. Not everyone is responsible for a hand held weapon such a a regular hand held gun.
It should be given to the public , I think that it should be given to the public because it has been around for awhile now and we should know what they are and how they are made and used.
