A three judge panel on the Ninth Circuit has held Judge Lasnik of Washington State did not have the authority to stop a State Department rule change upholding the First Amendment on 3D printing
Have you already forgotten your Revolution? There is no social or technical project, no political imposture or positive value system, that can contain what we have unleashed – the 3D Gun Revolution.
Ross Peters, in Wisconsin, has built a hybrid 3D printed with metal parts pepperbox revolver. It is an innovative design which illustrates the futility of attempting to outlaw firearms.
Judge Robert Lasnik, a Semi-retired judge in the Western District of Washington (Seattle), ruled against the State Department, Defense Distributed, and the Second Amendment Foundation.
A New Jersey Congressman has introduced legislation to criminalize the importation of gun parts and to require that all guns made by individuals be recorded. The law is unworkable as written.
H.R. 7115 known as the “3D Firearms Prohibitions Act” will ban the selling and all forms of advertising of parts kits for modern sporting rifles.
Defense Distributed announced longtime Vice President Paloma Heindorff will replace Cody Wilson as Director of Defense Distributed and CEO of Ghost Gunner.
A greater respect for personal choice is at stake here, and adults imposing themselves on children is dissonant with that value.
Two constitutional rights advocates have filed a new lawsuit against Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey after she denied them access to public records about “3D printed” guns.
Cody Wilson obeys court order not to distribute 3D gun files for free on the Internet. Instead, he sells them for free on key drives, exercising his First Amendment rights.
The decision is a classic case of judge shopping and judicial activism. Judge Lasnik does not like what the executive branch is doing. He issues an injunction.
This issue doesn’t just deal with Second Amendment rights but also has far-reaching effects on First Amendment rights on the people.
Hundreds of millions of guns in the United States are unlicensed and untraceable. It has been that way for decades. 3D guns make no difference.
Heather Nauert, spokesperson for the Dept. of State, answered questions about the settlement of the First Amendment lawsuit with the Second Amendment Foundation and Defense Distributed.
This has nothing to do with “commonsense gun safety” and everything to do with control. “We don’t trust you with knowledge. Best leave that to us.”
