The new trendy thing in the world of crime, is to create automatic weapons, guns, rifles and other firearms, made out of plast. But that's not the most chocking part. The weapons are created in 3D Printers! Isn't that fucking amazing? Don't underestimate the creative mind of a criminal.

This discovery was done by Swedish police recently, when they did a raid against a gang member in his apartment on two different occations, a local news website, 24malmo.se reports.

The police found two plastic firearms that was produced in a 3D Printer in the apartment. One of the weapons reminded of the Czech automatic weapon called Scorpion, caliber 22, that is very popular among gang members in Europe.

When the police tried the plastic weapons out, it turned out that the weapons were highly functional, and very deadly automatic firearms.

According to police, it is a problem with this type of newly inventions among criminals in Europe. Because the judicial system has not yet judged, if these type of plastic weapons can be classified as real firearms, and the judicial system is way behind the technological developments in this area.

Another problem the police are facing, is that it could get very difficult to prohibit 3D Printers, that is mostly used to manufacture other things, then to create deadly firearms.

A video demonstrates how firearms can be manufactured in 3D Printers.
