Petition to US State Department

Ban Downloadable/Plastic Guns and Bullets

On July 31st, a United States Federal Judge blocked Cody Wilson and his organization, Defense Distributed from releasing their 3D printed gun blueprints. However, the judge did provide Wilson with other options, such as mailing USB drives with the information on them. In addition, Defense Distributed illegally released the blueprints to the public, days before they were scheduled to be granted permission.  3D printed guns are dangerous because they can be made on demand and can bypass security checkpoints undetected. Also, they have no serial number making the guns untraceable. Kids, felons, terrorists, abusers and mentally ill people could all get their hands on an unlimited amount of guns, without a single background check. A new startup has also appeared on multiple news stations because of their frightening and absurd goal. They want to give blueprints for 3D printable bullet proof vest penetrating bullets to the public at no cost. Not only is this dangerous for citizens of the United States but this organization going under the name, Atlas Arms is also anti government and encourages the bullets to be used to murder police officers.  Safe Nation demands that a bill is passed, stating that all gun and bullet blueprints are illegal to be sold or given for free in the United States.

Petition to USA Today, Samsung

Edit the USAToday article showing face of MSD Shooter

Recently, the news publication USA Today released an article titled 'They have made change': 1 year after carnage in Parkland, where key figures are now“ In this article they showcased the student activist of Marjory Stoneman Douglas who created the March For Our Lives movement. In the last year they’ve done amazing work to raise awareness about gun violence, as well as help implement legislation to curb it. However, at the end of this article a photo and a full biography was given of the shooter. He was given media space, as if he accomplished something notable. This person is a muderer as does not deserve any notoriety for what he did. This type of disregard is completely insensitive to the community of people who will forever be grieveing the loss of the 17 victims. Before committing this senseless act, the shooter made a video discussing his desire to gain fame from it. USA Today fulfilled his wishes almost a year to the day of the incident.  I am calling on USA Today to edit the article and remove any trace of the shooter from it. I am also calling on businesses such as Ford, Samsung, and Emirates Airlines, who buy advertising space from the publication to help enforce these changes. After the shooter has been caught, there photo should NOT be published. Additionally there name(s) should be greatly limited in any publications written about the tragedy. If you agree with the following, sign this petition to demand these changes. We must set a standard for media to enforce a practice of #NoNotoriety when it comes to the perpetrators of these tragedies.
