Appeals court upholds open carry in Hawaii ; 3-D printing and gun control


The Ninth Circuit has ruled that the Second Amendment protects the right of a citizen (otherwise eligible) to carry a gun in public for self-defense (it must be visible). Hawaii had said it must be kept at home.


AOL has relayed the Reuters story by Jonathan Allen and Joanna Kruzman. 

Here is another story from a Hawaii TV station.

Red State has a story on the opinion that is, well, breathtaking, complete with multiple tweets.

The Washington Post has a story by Deanne Paul on Cody Wilson and how 3-D printing of weapons will greatly complicate gun control, link.

As of Aug. 1, according to a settlement, 3-D printing will be legal, according to CNN story.  Social media platforms will certainly try to ban posts linking to the sites;  hosted sites will probably try to outlaw such links as part of their AUP's but that will be almost impossible to do. Covered on Don Lemon on July 26.

How can the TSA detect these printed weapons?

I emailed David Hogg on this matter and here is his reply on Twitter.

Update: July 31

A federal judge has temporarily stopped Wilson's company from releasing the blueprints online., story
