Another technology that will make our laws obsolete. Not everyone will be printing guns and bazookas today or tomorrow but we have seen over and over again, if it exists in technology at an elementary level, it will eventually exist on the highest level. Except holograms which someone out there has decided that we aren’t ready for all that yet.
“Twenty minutes into his State of the Union address last week, President Obama entered the realm of uber-geekery — three-dimensional printing. The magical devices capable of printing prosthetics, violins and even aircraft parts have the potential, the president said, “to revolutionize the way we make almost everything.”*
3D printing technology is at the point where home-manufacturing guns is possible.

Will 3D-printed guns be regulated? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.
