Japanese man arrested over 3D printed guns
Japanese police have arrested a 27-year-old man on suspicion of possessing handguns believed to have been created by a 3-D printer.
Police say this is the first time in Japan they have seized guns possibly made with the technology. They have charged the man, a college employee, with hiding 2 plastic handguns last month at his home in Kawasaki, near Tokyo.
Police launched an investigation after the man posted video footage of the guns on the Internet. They seized 5 plastic handguns, and determined that 2 of them could be used to kill. They have not found any live bullets.
