Plastic or metal ore?
Which do you prefer? How do you stand on the plastic gun blueprint issue? One judge blocked the release of the software which gives the user a step by step how-to on making a plastic weapon. Eight states plus DC filed a suit to stop the newly allowed settlement to publish. The judge ruled that the availability of 3-D printers would cause irreparable harm. It's too easy.
It's also too late.
Already over 1,000 users have downloaded the plans which were uploaded to the maker's site a few days ago. So what is the big deal? Are there not other geniuses who could figure this out and make some device undetectable? Sure. Arguments against the release say this is giving away the farm and making it easy for terrorists on tried and true models which function properly.
The gun designs were first made by an anarchist. Then the plans were made public, but quickly banned. This seems to be a new beginning to long days of arguments before finally reaching an end. I imagine it will go to the US Supreme Court. What are your thoughts on this?
In other news, the BBC, Fox, and PBS were viewed as the most trusted news networks. I bet that sent most of the other networks into an overdrive of dismay. Next thing you know, they might shout from the highest tree tops that the pollsters only inquired with crazy people to get those perceptions. 😊😜I find it amusing.
Manafort trial is ongoing. Pay attention. Judge Ellis is the one to watch here.
