Cody Wilson wants you to print a gun from home on a 3-D printer. He then wants everyone to be able to get access to the plans for free. Wilson is raising funds through the Wiki Weapon Project, hosted by a group that calls itself Defense Distributed. The funds are going to be used to purchase equipment to print the gun and award the prize to the contest winner. The contest is awarding a $3,000 – $5,000 prize to anyone who can design a printable gun that can fire a single .22 caliber bullet. Wilson, referring to the donors and American’s second amendment gun rights says, “I think it shows they really believe in a future where the gun is inalienable…a kind of faith in American individualism, the sovereignty of the individual.”SOURCEPosted by Eddie Lee on Sep 17, 2012
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign doesn’t want to talk about what the Democrat is doing to prepare for the fall debates with Republican Mitt Romney.

American Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was killed in an attack on a US consulate in the Middle East. In separate protests in Cairo, several men scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy and tore down its American flag. This violence in both Libya and Egypt stemmed from anger about an online film considered offensive to Islam. Mitt Romney said he was “outraged” by the attacks in Benghazi and Cairo, but took harsh aim at the Obama administration for what he characterized as a weak response to the violence. Obama’s campaign, along with other Democrats, has pushed back, saying it was “shocked” to hear Romney injecting politics during a time of mourning in the U.S. diplomatic community.
