Everyone needs to download this.
Might as well wait until tomorrow when it’s legal.
We’ll have it posted when it’s ready and legal. Unless there’s some reason we can’t do that (I assume we can just post the link to Cody’s site). It will also be on torrents forever.
Under a court settlement, people aren’t supposed to be able to legally download plans for 3-D printed guns until Wednesday.
But because designs for the guns have already been posted online, by Sunday more than 1,000 people had already downloaded plans to print an AR-15-style semiautomatic assault rifle, according to the office of Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro.
Shapiro has been fighting to keep 3-D printed guns out of Pennsylvania. At an emergency hearing held over the phone Sunday, the attorney general’s office asked a judge for a restraining order that would block a website run by gun-rights group Defense Distributed from being accessible in Pennsylvania. The group’s site allows people to download plans to make 3-D guns.
Oh, a Jew trying to stop freedoms?
Well, I’ll be gosh-darned.
Now I’ve seen everything!
At the hearing, Defense Distributed agreed to block Pennsylvania IP addresses for a few days until a more formal hearing could be held.
Josh Blackman, a lawyer for Defense Distributed, told CNN on Monday that more than 1,000 AR-15 gun plans have been downloaded but wouldn’t confirm Shapiro’s claim that they were only downloaded since Friday.
“This is a free speech case. This isn’t a gun case,” said Blackman, who challenged Pennsylvania’s efforts to block the downloads. “One state cannot censor the speech of a citizen in another state.”
Pennsylvania isn’t the only state trying to bar access to 3-D printed guns. Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced Monday he is leading a lawsuit in eight states and the District of Columbia to block a court action that would let people download plans for untraceable 3-D printed weapons. This lawsuit is being filed in federal court in Seattle.
For those who don’t know, Defense Distributed is owned by Cody Wilson, the lead inventor of these 3D printed guns.
He is also the owner of Hatreon, the only crowfunding site that ever let me get donations.
That site has been not working for… a lot of months now.
But maybe since he’s finished this case… nah, I won’t hold my breath. He tried really hard to keep Hatreon up, and it turned out to be impossible. From what I understand.
We are just crypto forever now, guys.
Btw, I haven’t solicited in a while… please send shekels. We have new writers and everything, don’t ya know.
We’ve also gotta start paying the Spanish guys. They’re now responsible for 10% of the site’s traffic.
