3D printers are not only essential for fostering creativity, they also play a crucial role in sustainability. These devices empower individuals to repair and repurpose items with ease, reducing waste and contributing to a more eco-friendly future. Additionally, 3D printing opens the door to endless opportunities for innovation and the production of useful items. I personally use my 3D printer to create replacement parts for appliances that no longer have parts available. I've also use my printer to create unique assistive devices which help my aging grandparents live better and more comfortable lives. Increasing the difficulty to access to these tools may stifle these positive contributions to society. Time would be better spent on addressing guns directly or addressing the actual issues that cause someone to even want or need a gun in the first place. I do not support this bill.
