Japanese Man Arrested For Having Guns Made With 3D Printer

So far 3D printing technology has been used to create harmless, if not extremely useful, plastic items, but since it was discovered that 3D printers can be used to print working firearms, which can make it through metal detectors undetected, the powers that be are up in arms.

Along comes 27-year-old Yoshitomo Imura, a guy from Kawasaki City who unwittingly broke Japanese law by using his 3D printer to print guns, then created YouTube videos of himself firing the weapons.

Yoshitomo rightfully claims he had no idea printing the guns was illegal, and now he’ll become the first in what will probably be a long line of offenders who dare to print guns while the law scrambles to decide the legality of the entire process.
