this morning the plan for ghost guns are up online these are firearms and components for rifles and guns that can be created by anyone at home who has a 3D printer being sold to the public already spoke to the NRA doesn’t seem to make much sense but it was the Trump State Department to drop the lawsuit preventing the designer from posting his blueprints the Obama Administration has started settings arguing the plans could be downloaded by terrorist and violated federal laws governing Firearms technology exports and Beyond dropping the lawsuit the Trump Administration is looking at changing the very rule the designer was originally food under the second part of the president’s tweet there is no word why he would check in with the gun lobby can we just conversation show interest group he didn’t say he spoke to the Department of Justice or the state department he’s not speaking to any other gun control groups but the president took to Twitter I reached out to the NRA walk us through why you go to the largest lobbying special interest group ever the NRA on what to do about the ghost gun printed guns the NRA by the way call them freedom and Innovation NBC’s Tom Costello has more on the guns and why the President should be checking his own State Department rather than the NRA push back against a new type of firearm that some people can actually build in their own home ate attorneys-general now asking a judge to block a Texas company from publishing that downloadable instructions for 3D printers to manufacture guns from guns to semi-automatics made a plastic and without a serial number that guns are untraceable and undetectable able to pass through most metal detectors movement Undead Undead right to publish and the instructions were already online anyway in June the Trump Administration dropped the courts bike with Wilson as long as you have the right to keep and bear arms Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last February this changes the safety of Americans forever if this is allowed to happen will bring even more gun violence to a country already reeling somewhat to walk in with a gun and you won’t airplanes you’ll be flying with someone with a gun and you won’t know it courthouses someone with a gun and you won’t know that’s the risk okay let’s have a look at what these 3D printed gun actually are conventional manufacturing requires a permit and all gun produced must bear serial number so they can be traced if stolen or used in a crime but with 3D printing there’s no way to enforce these laws components can be printed without any oversight and any record-keeping site offers files that allow users to print polymer components on demand so now to build a gun you don’t need to purchase industrial machine working equipment or have special expertise among the firearm components on the site our plans to put print a fullback M9 handgun and the lower receiver for an AR-15 you won’t be able to print the entire rifle do the printer limitation but you can print out several key components that allow the designer to fire 600 rounds continuously in a test early this year so this is real and more concerning who lawmakers is the Liberator this was the first weapon designed by the group hosting the plans it’s a single shot polymer weapon the only non 3D printable part are the ammunition and a small nail that’s used in place of a firing pin up here alright some lawmakers worried the guns run afoul of the undetectable Firearms Act of 1988 the designer put a small metal piece into the handle of the first Liberator although he said is out of Goodwill and that others aren’t obligated to do so a gun control advocacy group against it it’s just one simple gone it’s not a semi-automatic weapon but if this thing is cleared and people can suddenly print this where can we quickly devolve to what Cody Wilson has said is that he wants to have a quote Cambrian explosion of 3D printable guns plans from his site meaning and explosion of different kinds of guns and all types of firearm he has said it skull have on this site so there’s a journalist to a couple of years ago 3D printed an AR-15 using Kodi Wilson’s plan this is not just about one simple kind of handgun living room and in the living rooms of foreign terrorists abroad about Richard me to the NRA dollars in campaign contributions from so I’m not entirely surprised by that the government has known for years that my organization the Brady Center has a keen interest in this case because we filed a brief in the fifth circuit as Anamika and they did not reach out to us before they came to the settlement we didn’t hear from either the Department of Justice or the Department of State and that’s one of the really troubling things here find this settlement why now as recently as April the government maintained that putting these plans online with a threat to National Security and International Peace so we have no idea Department I’m sure you interface with the government all the time when they made the settlement which now is done it’s not like you can put the toothpaste back in the tube did they give you any rash now stop it was coming we learned about it in the Press just like everybody else on the very next day we sent a Freedom of Information Act request to the government the cost the government to do a complete 180 now they haven’t gotten back to us yet and if I don’t get back to us in accordance with the statute we will have to sue the Trump Administration again to get these documents be too late the guy who’s doing this Corey he’s he’s wrapped himself all up in the constitution on this one he calls this a First Amendment expression of his second amendment rights that obviously this is something that you come up against a great deal there is second amendment that allows some gun usage and ownership in this country what’s your response to that argument we’re up with guns and I don’t have any concern about most Americans having a gun in the home via shoe comes when were talking about dangerous people having guns in the home and courts have held for Generations that there are some people who cannot have a gun because they are too dangerous felons and domestic abusers fit into that category this notion also that the first amendment is some unfettered right to speak anything anytime anywhere is simply untrue we have lots of limits on second amendment rights and on First Amendment right I mean you can’t shout fire in a crowded theater there are lots of ways that we think that we need to protect Public Safety from people who would pretend that they’re just exercising some right DC on YouTube if you want to keep up-to-date with the videos were putting out you can click subscribe just below me or
