Man facing trial for 3D-printing Guns




 A man by name Sicen Sun has been charged and tried in court for illegally 3D- printing firearms. The police charged him for manufacturing pistols without a permit and possessing digital blueprints for the manufacture of firearms.

In reaction to the above charges, the lawyer to Mr Sun, Jason Keane, said in court that his client is nothing more than a science fiction "fan boy" with a love of war gaming and cop shows. The Lawyer further said that Sun was far from being a seasoned criminal, "He has a fanboy relationship with war gaming, science fiction and police shows, He is captured by provisions clearly designed to target more serious activity."

Ever since the last incident where real bullet was successfully fired from a 3D-printed gun in 2013, the police have been in the fore front in making sure that there is no repetition by prosecuting firms, individuals that illegally acquire 3D-printed firearms and 3D-printing machines.

Mr Sicen Sun was denied bail.
