Law Enforcement Able to Trace 3-D Printed Guns
WESLACO – Untraceable 3-D printed guns may no longer be an issue.
Researchers have found a way to lead police to the makers of the gun if ever it were to be used to commit a crime.
"The 3-D printing where the weapon can be made and not have actually any type of trace of who made it and who has that weapon especially if it goes online. Somebody is going to be able to come up and print that," says Alamo Public Information Officer Juan Meza.
A group of researchers at the University of Buffalo discovered each 3-D printer has its own unique hardware fingerprint.
KRGV’s John Paul Barajas explains how it is possible for law enforcement to track down where the gun was created.
