The NCA has set up a project to bring together experts on 3D-printed firearms and better train police officers to identify the weapons and the equipment needed to make them, Biggar said.
“We’ve got a project called Interknow, which is pulling together everyone who is relevant in the UK to 3D-printed firearms to try and share knowledge, not least so that when your average police officer goes into a house to do a search, and they find something, they actually recognise it’s a 3D-printed firearm and not a Nerf gun,” Biggar said.
That might be a leap too far, for some…
“And then when they see a 3D printer, they know what to look for around the materials. Because not surprisingly, that’s not what they’re expecting, what they are trained on.”
Has TV been lying to me again? Don’t they have briefings before going out to kick down doors?
