Skip to comments.The Greatest Challenge to the 1st Amendment: A Follow Up

The Government has forced Cody Wilsons company, Defense Distributed, to take down his designs for 3D printed firearms. I cant say Im surprised, and if you had read my other article earlier in the week you would understand why: This is a blatant attack on the first amendment. Forget, for a minute, that these plans can be used to create guns. What is the difference between banning these plans from distribution, and banning a book? There are quite a few books out there that could be considered just as dangerous. I downloaded a PDF book on building machine guns last night. Will we see books like that banned next?
Just this week Obama gave a speech in which he said, Reject voices that warn about government tyranny.
Let me quote the words of a document that president Obama would have you reject.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security
Is this computer file any more dangerous to the government than the words of the *actual* Declaration of Independence? Will these words also be banned?
You're just begging for an audit by posting that.... oh, no, I posted it too. I'm sorry, IRS, I didn't mean to discuss freedom.
“Just this week Obama gave a speech in which he said, Reject voices that warn about government tyranny.”
When words disagree with action, believe action.
The feds have structured themselves so that no matter what they do, we will not and or cannot respond.
Nobody has ever defined a line in the sand for the federal government so what is to stop them?
IMO, anytime they violate any provision of the Constitution OR try to exorcise rights which belong to us and were never assigned to them, they crossed the line. However, I seem to be in a minority as everyone keeps complaining but never says that’s it!
