Japanese Man Arrested for 3D-Printing Revolvers

Apparently, printing your own revolvers can put you in prison. That's the story with Yoshitomo Imura, a 27-year old university official from Kawasaki City, who posted a video of himself firing a 3D-printed gun. Imura made the revolver, dubbed Zig Zag, using a home 3D printer.


 

The real problem occurred when Yoshitomo Imura posted the video where you can see him presenting the gun, assembling it, and firing it with blanks. He says,

 

“It is the first 3D printer revolver in the world which can discharge the live cartridge made in Japan. In order to protect the law of Japan, the bullet for motion picture photography is used.

Please make [sic] in the United States!”

 

    

 

It seems that Imura did break the law in Japan, as police invaded his home and seized five 3D-printed guns, and his $500 printer. The Japanese firearm and sword possession control law says,

 

“Law prohibits the following: possession of a firearm, handgun part, handgun ammunition, imitation handgun, or a mock arm with intent to sell; import of an Article 3-4 Handgun, a handgun part, or handgun ammunition; conveyance of an Article 3-4 Handgun, a handgun part, or handgun ammunition; 12 receipt of an Article 3-4 Handgun, a handgun part, or handgun ammunition; the firing of an Article 3-4 Handgun in a public place such as a public road, park, station, theater, and department store or on or at public transportation; the carrying of a sword with a blade length of greater than six centimeters, or an imitation sword; or the failure to report a recovered firearm or sword; or the loss or theft of a registered firearm or sword.”
