Court victory legalizes 3D-printable gun blueprints

Recommended Posts

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 have no problem with the information being considered free speech.

We have a long legal way to go about the end user complying to his individual/state and federal rights.

Can't 3D print a bullet. Let's hope this fast-tracks the Chris Rock gun control plan.

hooray more ways for white psychopaths to get their hands on a gun let's celebrate this guys lol suck it libs

This is basically a court win for things like the anarchist cookbook.  Which I fully support.

 

We are to enter a very messy long legal area though of compliance to local/state/federal laws in the age of 3d printing.

all that gun control , swept away by technology.

No.  You as an individual need to comply to local/state/federal regulations.   The information is free speech - owning a weapon when you are not eligible to, owning a prohibited weapon, owning  a weapon you do not have a proper license for is all still illegal.

 

gawd you are dumb.  Not even understanding what you posted.

So you are supporting people that are banned from owning guns to print them?  Or printing guns that are illegal via local/state/federal laws?    You called this a defeat for gun control - your response to the fact gun control still exists is "people will break the law".   well done moron.

 

 

 

I as a leftist and FOR open sourcing.  So I have no problem with a win for open sourcing.

Cody Wilson, an Austin man whose fight over 3D-printed guns thrust him into the national spotlight, faces a charge of sexual assault, according to an arrest affidavit filed in Travis County district court on Wednesday.

The affidavit said a counselor called Austin police on Aug. 22 to report that a girl under the age of 17 told her she had sex with a 30-year-old man on Aug. 15 and was paid $500.

 

In a forensic interview on Aug. 27, the girl told authorities that she created an account on SugarDaddyMeet.com, and began exchanging messages with a man who used the username “Sanjuro,” the affidavit said.

The pair messaged online, then began exchanging text messages.

“During this conversation, ‘Sanjuro’ identified himself as ‘Cody Wilson.’ Victim said that ‘Sanjuro’ described himself to the victim as a ‘big deal,’ ” the affidavit said.

 

According to the document, Wilson sent the girl images of his penis, and she sent him nude photos of herself.

Investigators compared the profile photos used on the SugarDaddyMeet.com account to Wilson’s driver’s license photo, and determined that they were of the same person, the affidavit said.

The girl told police that she met Wilson at Bennu Coffee in the 500 block of South Congress Avenue in South Austin on Aug. 15 before they took Wilson’s black 2015 Ford Edge to the Archer Hotel in the 3100 block of Palm Way.

Detectives used surveillance footage to corroborate the girl’s story, along with hotel records that showed Wilson rented a room at the hotel, the affidavit said.

The girl told police she and Wilson had sex at the hotel and that he paid her $500.

The pair left the hotel around 9:20 p.m. before Wilson dropped the girl off at a Whataburger on Slaughter Lane, the affidavit said.

If found guilty Cody Wilson should forever lose his right to own a gun including one he prints himself.

So she falsely stated her age on the website in order to even access it.
