USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- This week a US federal judge in Seattle, Washington has issued a preliminary injunction extending a ban on posting plans for 3D-printed guns to the internet. So that means under color of law you can no longer have 3D files available for download online… right?
Wrong! You can now buy them! LOL.
That is right, the ruling by the judge included the stipulation that it is OK to sell the same files that are banned from being giving away for free. Yeah, I do not get it either. But I love the fact that this is a total finger in the eye of gun banners, So I downloaded myself some 3D gun files to give as gifts to all my friends.
The Washington Times, grudgingly reports:
“Cody Wilson, the founder of Texas-based Defense Distributed, is testing the limits of free speech, battling a Clinton-appointed federal judge and enraging gun control groups that say distributing the blueprints will lead to undetectable plastic guns flooding communities.
But Mr. Wilson said he is following the judge’s orders to the letter by stopping free downloads from the web. Instead, he is selling the plans and sending them to customers on flash drives through the mail and is considering email sales as well.
“I’m happy now at this point to become the iTunes of downloadable guns if I can’t be the Napster,” Mr. Wilson said as he announced his plans.
He is offering plans for 3D-printer manufacturing of parts for several rifles and handguns, including the popular AR-15 rifle and a 1911 pistol.
He suggests a $10 price for each sale but allows users on his website, DefCad.com, to name their own price.”
3d gun files you can purchase (and yes you get to name your own price, I paid just a penny) include:
An AR15 Rifle Receivers including one made for .308 caliber.
A Beretta 92FS “Ghost~Gun” Handgun.
And many more “dangerous” weapons files.
Please support the spread of online gun files and freedom of speech, you can not stop the singularity. We are Q.
