New York City’s counter-terrorism chief on Sunday called the threat posed by 3D-printed guns “truly unbelievable.”
“This is just insanity,” John Miller told New York AM 970’s John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable.”
“The idea that we have fought … [for] a law where people who buy guns have to undergo a universal background check — that took years to get done,” Miller said. “And we’re still [fighting to close loopholes on that law] even though we have a school shooting or a massacre every other week.”
“The idea of while we are fighting to close those loopholes, to then open the greatest loophole of all, which is buy a $2,000 printer and you can make as many guns as you want that aren’t subject to regulation; that don’t have to have a serial number; that don’t have to be traceable; that may not be made out of metal and can defeat certain metal detectors — we’re taking a turn there from the ridiculous, to something that is totally unbelievable.” he continued.
The case over posting the 3D printed gun plans will go back to court on August 10.
