6:15 pm
printer, but late this afternoon a federal judge stepped in and temporarily blocked the whole deal. nbc bay area's sam brock joins us live from the san francisco public library which has one of those 3d printers. sam. >> reporter: yeah, janell, using 3d printers, you find 3d printers here at a library, you find them at homes and in businesses. the reality is that this settlement of a longstanding legal case would allow someone to use a machine like this to make plastic version of any kind of weapon on the market. so leaders here at san francisco city hall and gun reform advocates heard about this, they stood on the steps earlier today and said it is outrageous and they plan on pushing back. on the defense distributed website, founder cody wilson has already declared victory. the home page reads, the age of the downloadable gun formally begins. >> as long as you have the right to keep and bear arms, you are the right to make them. >> reporter: and making them now
6:16 pm

6:17 pm
criminalize online speech on a certain topic and then decide on a case-by-case basis which speech to license, without any binding standards, fixed deadlines or judicial review. and complicating the matter, the president's own response today on twitter about this. president trump said, quote, i am looking into 3d plastic guns being sold to the public. already spoke to nra, doesn't seem to make much sense. and it is the president's own administration that gave the green light on these downloads in the first place. as a result, what we've seen are 21 attorneys general from around the country going ahead and writing a letter to the state department and to the justice department, imploring them to rescind this settlement, and that includes california's. reporting live from the public library here in san francisco, sam brock, "nbc bay area news." >> thank you so much, sam. a popular website is being accused of false advertising. angie's list helps people find anything from handyman to doctors, but san francisco district attorney george gascone

6:19 pm
children from a pleasanton youth program tries to maneuver the twists and turns on mount tee b diablo. unable to make the curve, it crosses the yellow lines into oncoming traffic, narrowly missing a bicyclist. >> the bus was completely over the double line and in my lane, so i had very little room to make the turn. >> reporter: rosie sipes says she thinks she is lucky she is here to talk about it and wants something done to keep buses off the mountain. the driver of this charter bus told the man who shot the video of those close calls with cyclists this was his first time driving on mount diablo and it would likely be his last. >> i wouldn't put my kid on this bus, number one. i wouldn't want to be on the bus that's going up this mountain. >> reporter: hundreds of bicyclists climb the mountain every day, and on the weekend that number could reach over 700, all trying to share the narrow road with cars, trucks and buses. >> it is just too dangerous. >> reporter: brad roberts, who has pedestrian willed up and
6:20 pm
coasted down tee ab low for ten years, says maybe there should be size limits for vehicles on the road. >> if you go into the -- over the yellow line, it is so twisty, you never know what is coming up on the other side. >> reporter: fortunately for rosie sipes, someone warned her the bus was coming around the curve. >> thank goodness somebody had warned me to stay to the right because if i did not do that on that morning, it definitely would have been a tragedy i believe. >> reporter: now, here at the base of mount diablo where we are right now at the kiosk, the parks department does hand out pamphlets tothem about sharing h cyclists and how dangerous it is up here with the curves on this road, but that cyclist group says with all of the warning it doesn't really matter. it is not going to help. they really have to limit these buses from being on the road. they're 40-feet long and 8 1/2 to 10-feet wide. we're live near mount diablo, thom jensen, "nbc bay area news."
6:21 pm
>> thom, that video was concerning to look at. where thom was at mount diablo, it looks beautiful. getting better there in terms of the haze? >> we are seeing the on- shore flow starting to come in, and that is helping with some of the smoke across the bay area right now, but it is still smoky out there for parts of the north and the east bay. as we get a look from our contra costa county camera, it, again, is improving from about an hour ago when you couldn't even see mount diablo, but that cooler, foggy breeze is starting to help out. now, the air quality looks like it will stay the worst in the north and, again, the east bay th do expect some moderate d levels of smoke for the peninsula and also the south bay. if the smoke is getting to you from the nearby fires, it is just some common sense stuff you may have already been thinking about, but i wanted to throw out some tips here for you. limit your outdoor exposure, that's the number one thing you can do. put your ac on recirculate so it is not continually bringing in the dirty air. you can get a n 95 mask to filter out the smoke particles.
6:22 pm
limit the high sugar foods. sugar is an inflammatory and can tax your respiratory system even more. we are looking at some improvement once we hit sunday's forecast with breezier wind coming in from the ocean and cooler temperatures. so, again, by sunday i think the smoke will begin to improve for us. we to have some fog once we hit tomorrow morning near the coast, also through the bay. by the afternoon we get sunshine with the haze from the nearby fires, and it is a little cooler. low 90s here for the interior valleys, closer to the bay it will be 84 in san jose. we are looking at 64 in san francisco. we'll have a nice, long look at all of these changes on the seven-day forecast coming up at 6:48 tonight. >> we will see you shortly. thank you, jeff. up next, santana, green bay, arrowsmith, will this be the day the music died? the reason a legendary berkley recording studio is closing its doors.
