The first gun to be 3D printed has been test fired in the USA. Mr Wilson, who describes himself as a crypto-anarchist, said his plans to make the design available were “about liberty”.
What is more important personal liberty to pursue these ends, or state intervention to ensure that these ‘plans’ do not fall into the wrong hands and/or add to the number of guns ‘on the street’? What is the strongest argument securing personal freedom or public safety? And how do we know?
