On Thursday, Philadelphia became the first U.S. city to enact a ban on 3D printed guns. It’s a pre-emptive move, because so far there hasn’t been a single report of 3D printed firearms showing up in Philly. As an assistant to the bill’s author told Philly Magazine, “it’s just based on internet stuff out there.”

That’s a bit of a head-scratcher — there’s a lot of internet stuff out there, could you be more specific? And it’s not really clear how City Council would even enforce this, since 3D printers themselves are not illegal.
