We have to put a stop to this dangerous movement of self-creation and innovation that is not under the protective regulation of government. We need common sense laws immediately that require all 3D printers to be registered, and licensure for their operators.
We cannot allow this threat to our national security to continue.

"Edward Snowden, the leaker who gave us the evidence of US government spying on its people is under threat of being extradited back to the U.S. to face persecution."
No Law or Act can be construed as to compel any person to conceal the commission of a crime, including crimes committed by government against its Citizens.
Well, I specifically included it as sort of a slap in the face, since a "paramilitary" is not part of formal armed forces, but most of these guys are wannabe-commandos.
From wiki: A paramilitary is a military-esque force whose function and organization are similar to those of a professional military, but which is not considered part of a state's formal armed forces.
Only 1/3? You lucky son of a bitch...
You would still have to go through the cellular network, and the phone would have to trust the carrier's CA, so really there is no such thing as security on a mobile phone. The carrier can still monitor all of your encrypted traffic. Here's a site that explains it pretty well. Employers do this all the time:
Another wonderful job by Slashdot's illiterate editing crew.
Linus, listen, you may be the father of the Kernel, but it is not your Kernel. It is not your own private property. You are enjoying the notoriety that comes on the backs of thousands of developers who, by the way, are working for free.
Shut the fuck up already. We're all tired of your childish bullshit. Bugs need to be fixed, and if a lot of them get fixed in a particular release, so be it. Shut your goddamn mouth for a change, understand that the Kernel has exceeded your ability to "go it alone," and get the FUCK out of everyone's way.
Fuck you very much, and have a nice day.
It's the ongoing paramilitarization of law enforcement.
In my sleepy little city in a rural corner of my State, our 8-member police department has 2 armored vehicles, 28 fully-automatic machine guns, 2 grenade launchers, and routinely engages in military-style exercises on weekends where they set up Soviet-style checkpoints and violate peoples' civil rights. People have been bringing this up at city council meetings only to be told by the council members that this type of activity is necessary to keep us safe - the typical GOP line.
Even my "Tea Party" congressman, who ran on the "Tea Party" platform, has been completely silent on the recent revelations about government spying on American Citizens, instead focusing his efforts on the GOP's scandal-du-jour, usually whatever bullet list of talking points Sean Hannity is vomiting on his radio show that day.
All of it is paid for by the Federal Government's various drug and terrorism interdiction programs - and we're not even in a border state, unless you count the Atlantic Ocean to be a high-drug-traffic border.
"When Xbox One is on and you're simply having a conversation in your living room, your conversation is not being recorded or uploaded." They also say data gathered during normal use won't leave the console without your explicit permission"
Except of course when a secret court grants the NSA permission to compel Microsoft to activate the video and audio sensors to conduct illegal suspicionless spying on American citizens.
Actually that would be a slippery slope, not a strawman.
If it saves just one life, it's totally worth it, whatever it takes. Obama said so.
Government only knows "one-size-fits-all" solutions [sic]. What's good for the driver is good for everyone in the car.
Just call it "System and Method for use of a Combination of Reciprocating Frictional Motion and Visual Stimuli for the Production of Half-Sequence Genomes in a Saline Solution."
They'll approve that in no time.
That's not how our law is supposed to work. The State can only do what Constitutional Law says it can do. That's how the Constitution and all laws passed pursuant thereto are supposed to work.
There is no law specifically granting police the power to collect DNA, so therefore for them to do so is illegal under the way our justice system is supposed to work.
Matter will be damaged in direct proportion to its value.
