Cuomo Signs Bill Banning 3-D Printed Guns
New York State's governor gave the green light on Tuesday to a series of gun control measures, including banning guns made with 3-D printing technology.
The bill signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo criminalizes making, possessing, or selling any firearm made through 3-D printing, a process that has taken off over the past several years as printing technology has advanced.
Expansion of gun storage laws was also included in the bill. The legislation requires that guns be safely stored when there are children under 16 years old who live in the residence. However, those under the age of 16 who are properly licensed to hunt may still continue to do so.
That portion of the law was inspired by the death of 12-year-old Nicholas Naumkin, a boy from Saratoga Springs who was sadly killed by his friend while the pair were playing with a gun owned by Naumkin's father.
