I have never heard a gunshot in my town (population of about 500.000), ever.

Tell that to the drug cartels and terrorist.
Believe me, time and money isn't an issue to criminal organizations.
Last time I checked criminals such as terrorists and drug cartels had connections to old military surplus guns and Eric Holder. If you think for a second criminals are going to waste their time with 3D printing of guns, you give criminals way too much credit.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but theoretically, if you can even print out tools like the crescent wrench that work, then you can also print out machetes or knives that can stab and cut and kill, and metal detectors can't detect them?
You mean like a piece of plexi glass or any other rigid plastic ground down?
Not to mention printing out all kinds of things that can be used to harm such as biological or chemical mist dispersal systems and whatever else you can think of.
Like a six pack of generic spray bottles from the dollar store?
Investing the time and resources into printing either would be a grossly inefficient undertaking.
