Broward County Libraries Suspend Public Access To 3D Printers
By Tom Knighton
There’s something in the water down there in Broward County. I get that something awful happened down that way earlier this year, and I can give them a little bit of slack for some of it, but there’s been an awful lot of dumb in that county.
The latest comes from their library system, of all blasted things.
You see, they seem to be terrified of people making guns on 3D printers the library has.
The national debate over 3D printed guns has reached Broward County. Starting Monday, Broward County’s Library system suspended use of all 3D printers at its facilities, citing the need for extra caution and weapon concerns.
The suspension was first reported by the Sun Sentinel. Broward libraries currently have seven printers that print 3D objects, in Pompano Beach, Coral Springs, and at the main library in Downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Broward County Library Director Kelvin Watson doesn’t know how long the printers will be off limits to the public.
Watson told WLRN Monday that the library system is taking the break to provide staff with additional training on how the printers should be used, and how to handle any potential printing of weapons pieces, not only guns.
