Recently, Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) said that “Online availability of downloadable firearms is a public safety crisis”. Furthermore, he also stated that these 3D-printed firearms are without serial number, thus calling them “Untraceable firearms”. He also stated that these firearms can pass through metal detectors easily without a blip, thus making them more dangerous than traditional gun cartridges.
Some media analysts believe that these 3D-printed gun cartridges are more dangerous than traditional gun cartridges as these can be made easily through a 3D printer and a downloadable blueprint. Whereas, others argued that these guns are not an immediate danger, as they only can fire a few rounds with the constant threat that the weapon might explode in the user’s hands.
This scenario instigated a debate across social media regarding whether the 3D-printed gun cartridge is more dangerous than the traditional gun cartridge?
