At a group in Texas called defense distributed has printed that's what you're supposed to see they printed -- working hand got a huge implications here.
From safety and security issues to manufacturing.
Is this breakthrough technology going to chains like as we know -- And how along with -- decided he -- a literally print out everything we want and need.
Here for more is former FBI investigator and senior vice president at control risks bill Daley.
Bill welcome back to the show.
-- -- a weapon.
Well they they actually haven't been talked about for -- molesters that you know printing and -- post what you may think putting up his -- this is not a printer like that this -- -- -- warrant -- out yeah -- It using materials -- plastic type materials and actually carves out the component pieces.
That are grateful wonderful things like in in the medical industry creating pieces of heart valves and other things that.
-- -- they need but look at the opposite side he just saw that clip where -- now the talk about making guns out of.
This so it seems like if you buy this partner you could create an army in an arsenal that's what a lot of people are tacky but I mean obviously at this point it's a printer that costs a fortune.
But over -- -- cost lasting and maybe it's worth spending a fortune if you're somebody that wants to arm yourself without people necessarily knowing is this a real danger I.
At biggest becoming increasingly concerned of being dangerous because as the issue said as the prince is good down from may be a high point of could be eight to 101000 more Dallas for these more sophisticated -- As they become more readily available as a mature become available.
It's not just to say who's gonna get their hands on it may -- this becomes the criminal and terrorist fact.
For making weapons and even -- some of them right now only fire a few shots before -- -- he started implode on themselves literally.
Nonetheless the damage can be done.
Is -- -- so it seems like that's another real problem is that somebody could make it got and that sort of go anywhere with it.
Well in certain circumstances it.
Is out of public -- at the airports and not as concerned because they ought to have equipment outside of the metal detectors that are looking for various type of or jacket in organic material so.
They can actually peer peer into your luggage -- may be seen -- of something now the pieces are there.
Broken down already and -- piece -- together while they they've actually the luggage that's something different.
But the metal detectors were people use this metal detectors to pick something up that's what we have the issue and that's the concern Melissa for places where may -- Maybe people can literally go around -- through an under security to wires in and wireless and actually send their weapon into a secure location.
Even though the security of physical security -- front.
So what's the solution because it seems like already you know we're hearing from people and they see they're saying we have to find a way to stop this maybe we stop the technology we don't -- the printers.
But in the end I don't know when you try and stop technology act alike that's not necessarily the most successful way to deal with something like this what do you think is I think.
I think you're I think you're right as much as we'd like to say let's stop this technology -- a number of other technologies that -- read we don't like we don't approve of but I don't think long term that's the solution I think the solution is a in the -- immunity is illegal to have a weapon.
That may not be registered that you haven't you know.
Properly purchased and all those other things that we've heard debate about on Capitol Hill about but analysts are -- and local state and federal level.
About about firearms say you and what I don't know yet -- -- -- have a legal remedy for something you can print your house so that and the other thing might be into.
-- some type of the monitoring of of who's getting these files.
Of how they're being distributed.
I have right now would talk about this company is willing to give out a file for nothing basically giving -- free as we've designed this this weapon.
But we find that this violates have like we have on music -- -- copyright or patent infringements and you can go after them that way but long story short it is something it is a it is a threat it's an issue out there -- something they know is is really sending a chill up to law enforcement.
A spines because in the past you get heavy of a case that may have been resolved because you were able to fire a weapon find a weapon with a serial number.
But you know match up the ballistics when it's found when they find the weapon compared to the -- the people may have found itself now.
When a case where it's it's totally new ball game.
But obviously -- -- there -- a lot of wonderful things he could do with this printer we're focused on the firearm aspect -- that a lot of our Twitter followers say you know they're great health implications I mean you talked about this at the beginning their great manufacturing implications.
You -- test out of model much more cheaply rather than having -- built in their a lot of great things that could be government -- -- question.
I think that's why it took bets that stopping technology for you know one when type of if you put -- -- the wise thing you need to find out of the weeks ago that he would because as you said.
We discussed there -- great things that can be done with something like this -- can give access to people around the world -- things that they may have not been able to get very quickly they can actually.
You know send a new prototype of the design or as we talk about medical technology and other things right to -- places where people can actually.
Manufacture them on site okay Bill Daly thanks so much for coming and we appreciate -- -- So it is.
