Technology: You can now print working guns with 3D printers

Oh my gosh now with a 3D printer you can print guns. In 2012, the U.S.-based group Defense Distributed disclosed plans to design a working plastic gun that could be downloaded and reproduced by anybody with a 3D printer." Defense Distributed has also designed a 3D printable AR-15 type rifle lower receiver (capable of lasting more than 650 rounds) and a variety of magazines, including ones for AK-47. Soon after Defense Distributed succeeded in designing the first working blueprint to produce a plastic gun with a 3D printer in May 2013, the United States Department of State demanded that they remove the instructions from their website.

In 2013 a Texas company, Solid Concepts, demonstrated a 3D printed version of an M1911 pistol made of metal, using an industrial 3D printer. This 3D printed guns can go undetected by metal detector if a metal plate is not inserted into the printed body which makes it a very dangerous weapon to be in circulation and to say it can be printed by anyone with a 3D printer is bad.

My question now is: If this technology hits the shores of Nigerian, how dangerous can that be considering the volatile nature of our country? Will you get one if you have a 3D printer?
