I seems that the signal can’t even be stopped by the UK’s famously stringent gun control laws. The Daily Mail reports that…
In what is thought to be the first case of its kind, Tendai Muswere, 25, is being prosecuted for creating the a (sic) James R Patrick PM522 Washbear Revolver and a Reprringer V3 Hexen pepper-box handgun.
Muswere has denied making the guns.
The alleged weapons were found during a raid on Muswere’s flat in Tachbrook Street, Pimlico, central London.
The Zimbabwean national was a student at London’s Southbank University at the time of the offence.
If you’re not familiar with the guns Muswere is accused of making…
The Washbear Revolver was created in November 2015 by American mechanical engineering student James R Patrick and the specifications disseminated online.
The Hexen pepper-box handgun first appeared in 2013, and is believed to be the first attempt to create a viable firearm with a 3D printer.
And like Defense Distributed’s 3D guns, plans are readily available all across Al Gore’s greatest invention.
If convicted, Mr. Muswere will be living as a guest of the Crown for a very long time.
