A South Florida county is halting the use of 3-D printers at public libraries amid concerns they could be used to make guns or other dangerous weapons.
Broward County libraries made the decision Monday a week after a man was shot outside a downtown Fort Lauderdale library. The Sun Sentinel reports the printers have been in use at Broward libraries for about four years, but visitors could not use the printers on their own. They had to submit their request and the staff would do the actual printing.
The decision also comes amid concerns that instructions to print 3-D guns will be made available online. Broward County is also home to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where a gunman killed 17 in February igniting a national debate on gun safety.
Let me get this: A man was shot OUTSIDE a library in the county, nobody know what kind of gun was it and the geniuses of the library system shut down the use of the 3D printers so they don’t get used to print a gun that only takes like 19 hours to produce?
How about focusing on what may really have contributed to the shooting outside the library? From the link just above:
Authorities said two men got into a fight at a homeless camp outside the library, at which time one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the other.
Nah, that can’t be.
