Somebody has to explain to me — what gives them the legal authority to do this to the guy.

Don't the feds know that you can purchase plans of everything from cannons to gatling guns to 'grease guns' legally via the internet?

This is good.

It's not a Second Amendment issue.

It's a First Amendment issue.

Get it to the USSC ASAP.

This is exactly the kind of speech the First Amendment was intended to protect.

The First Amendment ain't about protecting porn.

It's about protecting political speech, and instructions on how to build firearms is political speech.

I'm betting they think ITAR does. But Phil Zimmerman sorta knocked that out on "weapons grade encryption".

The plans were in a thread here just the other day. And does Mr. Obama actually think those are the only people on Earth who can figure out how to print a firearm on a 3-D printer? Hilarious!

You can learn everything you need to know about making a gun from your average 8 year old palestinian. Suggest using common sense for the sake of safety.

I saw them make a wooden cannon on mythbusters.

Let me explain it to those that are dense.... take a tube. Put substance in it that burns quickly. On top of that, put just about anything. Potato, lead, depleted uranium. Touch off the flamable substance. The projectile moves downrange.

Humans have been doing it for over 500 years.

Download a bit torrent client (I use bitlord) and you can find it.
I did earlier today.
Now that the files are out there, they’re out there for good.

If you're interested in printable arms:

Magnet Link for the .

The Liberator has a Chinese readme, in addition to the English.
I cannot vouch for the file/design in either of these because I don't have a 3D printer.

I downloaded and looked at the zip. It’s legit. It’s a very nice piece of work. They tell you to epoxy 6 oz of steel to the frame so that it will be legit.

This is a fascinating beginning.

Any .com, .org, .net, etc. can be taken down by government agencies in the US.

This is why many companies are not relocating their servers overseas under a different extension that is not in the US jurisdiction.

Got cell phone? They have a tower ping map of everyone’s location on record. They can’t find their asses with both hands, but they can map your every motion through cell phone records, banking transactions, and the rest of the standard regulatory records in their central databases.

... and the next step will be to put tracking chips in currency. Oh, then there are the quiet megabucks they’ve given to “upgrade” video surveillance systems ( as long as they have an active feed) to cities and corporations across the country.

Rand and Orwell were prophets.

All internet traffic, from sites, to texts, to twits, to posts are recorded, as are all phone calls. That’s why they have built the vast data suppository in Utah. We don’t need no steenkin warrants!

I guess you could sit in your basement and send encrypted smoke signals, but you’d only be inviting a visit from the EPA.

Why would FEDGOV worry about this modest plastic gun while real, more powerful guns are still available? It can only be the printed gun represents a threat to their plans, and therefore, their plans MUST be that no-one will have real guns.
