The American state of California, in the words of its own governor the progressive Jerry Brown, has just announced the creation of a new law that will oblige any citizen who has or is going to manufacture their own weapon through 3D printing to is registered in a Registry that will grant it a serial number or another brand, which must always remain in the weapon and which, in turn, serves as identification for the Police.
On the other hand, the law strictly prohibits the sale of arms assembled by citizens. If you think that the regulation ends here, you are very wrong since for its detection, any person who creates or manufactures their own weapon must, in addition include in it a piece of stainless steel that can be detected by metal detector security arches since, if they were completely made of plastic, like most created to date, they would go unnoticed in any control, with the danger that this can pose for citizens.

As is usual, if a progressive governor takes a step, there is no shortage of conservatives who criticize him. On this occasion it has been the National Rifle Association and certain conservative groups that have not been slow to show their I reject this law qualifying it even as «despotic»And even to violate the Constitution.
