The files needed to print a gun are not buried on the dark web.

They can be downloaded in as little as three clicks from mainstream social media sites such as YouTube.

3D-printed gun technology has rapidly advanced in recent years - with a range of printable semi-automatic rifles, carbines and pistols available.

Those who create and share the designs for these firearms have thousands of followers on Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.

Although popular in the US, where they are legal, 3D-printed guns are beginning to appear more frequently in the UK.

Well, actually you could, and it would be like a shotgun slug as the plastic breaks up.

And I`m pretty sure all it takes is for someone to buy some fireworks to get their hands on material for the charge.
