Canadian Government Investigating 3D Printed Weapons

The 3D printed weapons controversy continues. From the CBC we learn that the Canadian Government, or specifically several of its agencies (the RCMP, Canada Border Services Agency and Criminal Intelligence Service Canada) have sponsored a request for contractors to provide insight into 3D printing of firearms, ammunition and associated parts. Our view is that such techniques currently yield marginally useful weapons at a cost in dollars and effort far more than simply obtaining conventional weapons. However, a weapon is a weapon and 3D technology is continually improving, so perhaps such a study may reveal interesting strategies for the future.
