TOKYO: A Japanese man suspected of possessing guns made with a 3-D printer has been arrested, reports said on Thursday, in what was said to be the country's first such detention.

Officers who raided the home of Yoshitomo Imura, a 27-year-old college employee, confiscated five weapons, two of which had the potential to fire lethal bullets, broadcaster NHK said.

They also recovered a 3-D printer from the home in Kawasaki, near Tokyo, but did not find any ammunition for the guns, Jiji Press reported.

It is the first time Japan's firearm control law has been applied to the possession of guns produced by 3-D printers, Jiji reported.

The police investigation began after the suspect allegedly posted video footage on the Internet showing him shooting the guns, the Mainichi Shimbun said on its website.

Officers suspect that he downloaded blueprints for making the guns with 3-D printers from websites hosted overseas, the newspaper said.

The daily said the suspect largely admitted the allegations, saying: "It is true that I made them, but I did not think it was illegal."

The police refused to confirm the reports, although broadcasters showed footage of Imura being taken in for questioning.

What maddens me is that there is a photo of the police carrying a lathe and a mill out of the guy's place. He could have made something a lot better with those. Idiot.

Meanwhile, in Japan, they run around with some of the most realistic-looking airsoft guns.

They would arrest "all othe other people" if the other people were dumb enough to post YouTube videos of themselves shooting their guns.

Actually pretty easy to legally make a gun for personal use in the US, just need to comply with local laws usually.

It pretty much has to comply with all other gun laws, you can't get around California's magazine capacity issues by making your own magazines, and you can't get around overall gun length by making your own gun.

Well, and federal laws. The easiest gun to build is a STEN knockoff, but they get really pissy about open-bolt machine guns for some reaosn.

Here in Florida you just have to comply with ATF regulations on rifling and length of the weapon, and not transfer ownership to anyone else. You don't even need a serial number.

There's also some army/cia/whatever booklet about making shitty improvised firearms. Should be easy to find.

You can use that method with fiberglass resin to harden it. I do that with some of my knife handles that are made of twine.
