CNN Analyst Warns: 3D Printable Guns Could Bring Next 9/11

‘I think that should be concerning to all of us’
By Grabien Staff

CUOMO: "All right. This 3-D gun thing, the fundamental merits of the case were not argued in court. So let’s hash it out in Cuomo’s court. We have the perfect counselors. CNN Legal and National Security Analyst Asha Rangappa, and Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus, Alan Dershowitz, author of 'The Case against Impeaching Trump.' Thanks to both of you. For the prosecution, Rangappa, why is this wrong?"

RANGAPPA: "Well, this is wrong on so many levels. So first, there is a law that prohibits the possession of undetectable firearms, so these plastic firearms. So as you noted, Chris, in your earlier discussion, by definition, anyone who is downloading these instructions and actually makes these guns is going to be an illegal gun owner of said gun. The First Amendment argument, I don’t think really goes anywhere. There are public safety exceptions. In 1997, after the Timothy McVeigh bombing, Senator Feinstein passed an amendment making it illegal to post bomb-making instructions. So there are public safety exceptions to this. But I think really the practical effect is every day when you get on an airplane, you now have to worry about someone who may be sneaking in a plastic gun, and this is really just asking for potentially another 9/11. And I think that should be concerning to all of us."
