Philadelphia “Bans” 3-D Printed Guns


Today, the Philadelphia City Council voted unanimously to ban the manufacturing of guns by 3-D printers, making Philly the first city to do so. Which is interesting, because the author of the bill, Kenyatta Johnson, isn’t aware of of any local gun-printing 3-D printers. ”It’s all pre-emptive,” says Johnson’s director of legislation Steve Cobb. “It’s just based upon internet stuff out there.”

The first question I have is, how are they going to enforce this? Are they going to issue general warrants to search every house to make sure there are no weapons that have been created? It is obvious that the city council doesn’t know what they are doing. They just want to be seen as doing “something”.
