$400,000 printer technology capable of metal sintering making 3D Printed Gun technology updated from the plastic 3D printed guns but more expensive. Creating physical objects from digital designs, boosting gun freedom as newer cheaper technologies are inevitable in the near future. This 1911 inspired 3D metal printed gun has fired through 600 rounds and is competing with guns you’d buy in the US. (Pictured Above) Democrat from Los Angeles, De Leon’s SB 808 calling “ghost guns” up for legislation. Would allow the manufacture or assembly of homemade weapons but require the makers to first apply to the state Department of Justice for a serial number that would be given only after the applicants undergo a background check. The number would have to be engraved on or otherwise permanently attached to the weapon within one day of its manufacture. He plans to amend the bill to also require that the guns contain permanent pieces of metal that could be detected by X-ray machines and metal detectors, a proposal that was blocked in the federal legislation. The US House of Representatives voted in December to extend for another 10 years the Undetectable Firearms Act, a current law that prohibits weapons made entirely of plastic because they can evade metal detectors. But Defense Distributed has already got around that by adding just enough stainless steel in their plastic guns design to alert metal detectors as legislators argue where the metal piece should be, wanting the metal piece places where if removed it would make the gun inoperable. “GHOST GUNS” are here to stay as 3D printers will do nothing but improve and get cheaper. 3D technology promises that anyone, anywhere, can create anything out of almost any material from nylon to glass. From chocolate to titanium, with any complex geometry even food printing. Soon anyone will be able to make complex products quickly and cheaply, something that will democratise innovation and unleash human creativity. from low-cost parts for aircraft; medical prosthetics and manufacturing actual biological organs out of organic material.

The most profound corporate power grab to date in the form of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a so-called “trade agreement” negotiated in secret. Fast-track trade authority legislation called The Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities Act of 2014 introduced in the Senate and House, and would permit the administration to pass the TPP without congressional input or oversight.negatively impacting environmental and food protections, health, labor, patents, natural resources, loosen fracking laws, and telecommunications, and generally bypassing the democratic process. The White House Press Release calling for bipartisan support for Fast Track Trade Promotion Authority is equally Orwellian.Corporate tribunals sanctioned by the deal would trump the sovereignty of U.S. courts, permitting corporations to sue any signing country for any perceived loss of profits due to laws or regulations they don’t like. Authority that would bypass congressional oversight this far-reaching “trade agreement” that extends far beyond trade. 18 New Zealand food and agricultural bodies sending strong messages on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade talks written to the Trade and Primary Industries ministers to say it will not support a TPP agreement that does not eliminate tariffs on agricultural and seafood products.The coalition is concerned that some TPP member countries, like Japan and Canada, are trying to get exemptions from removing tariffs on some products. 10 members of the United States Congress have pledged support and assistance for Taiwan’s participation in regional economic integration and for stronger U.S.-Taiwan economic relations when speaking to President Ma Ying-jeou on the phone, officials said Thursday. During a 24-hour layover in Los Angeles on his way back from Central America, Ma used every available minute to speak with 20 current and former U.S. politicians by phone, members of Ma’s delegation said. Among the people Ma spoke to were former President Bill Clinton, former Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. In his conversations with 10 members of Congress, the 63-year-old president expressed Taiwan’s determination and willingness to participate in the U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), according to the officials.
