Default Court victory legalizes 3D-printable gun blueprints

A multi-year legal battle over the ability to distribute computer models of gun parts and replicate them in 3D printers has ended in defeat for government authorities who sought to prevent the practice. Cody Wilson, the gunmaker and free speech advocate behind the lawsuit, now intends to expand his operations, providing printable gun blueprints to all who desire them.

The longer story of the lawsuit is well told by Andy Greenberg over at Wired, but the decision is eloquent on its own. The fundamental question is whether making 3D models of gun components available online is covered by the free speech rights granted by the First Amendment.

I'm guessing the right wing mouth breathers will go along with this enthusiastically...








right up until the Black Panthers buy a 3D printer.

Wait until you fire that 3D printed gun and it explodes in your hand. Also airport and metal detectors will struggle with this.

The nra will eventually oppose this when it negatively impacts gun sales. Then real legislation will happen.

3d printing is already moving into metal...

As for stopping the transmission of simple blueprints on the internet. Well, we have enough experience with the internet to know how that's going to turn out.

Best case, criminals with unfettered access. Some law-abiding worrying about what tokenist know-nothing prohibitionists think.

This is the future, progressives. I thought you were ready for it.

Freedom of the 3D printing press ?

Giant government bureaucracies and most big businesses do not have speed and agility to keep up with disruptive innovation.

3D printing is becoming more affordable and we are now seeing ability to print steel, titanium, carbon fiber and much larger scale items.

We struggle now with China using stolen IP building cheap knock-offs. Will be near impossible to prevent in the future with the ability to 3d scan and reverse engineer straight to a 3D printer.

It might actually level the playing field a bit with China. It potentially takes quite a bit of the advantage of low labor costs off the table.

That is, if the government doesn't effectively ban it in the name of your protection.

I am actually fine with this... The biggest opponent of this are gun manufacturers. **** 'em... Everyone print your own weapon.

Yes but that also means that felons get guns, nothing is regulated (eg not training no permits) also with murder there are no longer gun serial numbers or registrations.

You can get designs to machine your own guns, so why would 3d printers be any different?

Would you support a crack down on felons caught with firearms? IMO they are soft on that crime.

I’m waiting till we can see the day when we can 3D print nukes. Then we can just hasten the process of removing ourselves as a civilization from the planet in a typical Darwinian selection fashion. Obviously we are too stupid to survive much longer so why draw it out?
