Making The 2nd Amendment Bulletproof

This is some awesome news! :thumbsup:

Gun-Grabber Nightmare: Landmark Court Ruling Paves Way for New Class of Homemade Guns

In a landmark court decision, the Department of Justice conceded that uploading 3D-printed gun blueprints to the internet is legal.

The monumental decision comes after one man’s five-year battle with the government for creating a 3D-printed gun and sharing the blueprints online.

In 2013, inventor Cody Wilson posted blueprints for the gun to his website. As Fox News reported, the gun, called The Liberator, was “the nation’s first pistol built exclusively on a 3-D printer, consisting of 12 separate parts made from plastic and a single metal firing pin.”

Within two days of the blueprints going up online, over 100,000 people had downloaded them.

By the following day, the federal government contacted Wilson claiming he violated International Traffic in Arms Regulations by posting the blueprints and demanded he take them down. According to the government, Wilson was required to give them notice before he uploaded the “technical data.”

But after cooperating and taking them down, Wilson realized the federal government may have violated his First Amendment rights — and he was going to do something about it.

“We said no, we’re Americans. Americans have the right to access this data unquestionably and the internet is now the commons in the way that libraries were in the past,” Wilson said to Wired.

In 2015, he decided to take his case to court with the Second Amendment Foundation. And three years after filing the lawsuit, Wilson and SAF won.

Details regarding the suit came Tuesday in a press release from SAF.

Yes, anti-gunners heads are definitely exploding, but what of the NRA, how will they react to this news, a lawsuit they had nothing to do with.
A little history on the NRA and its drive to regulate firearms.


Quote
the NRA spawned a subgroup devoted to them and supported state-level permit requirements for concealed weapons.

In the Prohibition Era, the conversation changed again with the urban use of shotguns and the fully automatic Thompson gun.

These lurid hallmarks of bank robbers and warring gangsters became a target for lawmakers. In the legislating beehive of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1938 regulated such guns, banned some buyers and made gun dealers register with the government.

The NRA worked with Congress and the White House on those acts and supported their enforcement. The same was true when these restrictions were extended and tightened following the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and again by a 1968 gun bill responding to the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert Kennedy.

But in the late 1960s, there was also widespread concern about rising crime rates and the deadly riots that flared in the nation's major cities. Citizens were concerned about their safety and turned to gun purchases for their personal protection. And many NRA members wanted their organization to get out in front of that.

Point is, even though the NRA has done much to protect the 2nd, they were also to blame for much of our problems today, when they helped the govt usurp the Bill Of Rights, a Bill that specifically states, the govt has no power over the Original 10.

What good is any gun without AMMO ?

Former President Obama was very effective at drying up various calibers of Ammunition, at different times.

To my knowledge, his direct assault on the 2A has never been successfully prosecuted.

Panic buying had a lot to do with ammo being scarce. We have learned our lesson. Even though the local gun stores look to buy ammo occasionally, I will not sell. :wink:

If you're a serious shooter and not reloading your own, you''re crazy or rich.

During the panic, even powder could not be found, in stores or on line. Have to say one thing about shooters, when they panic, sales spike!

Seems that they followed the strategems of the RINO, appease the left and compromise in order to get some of what you want because they trust the left to work together towards one uniparty.

Not out West, there was no shortage of anything, with the exception of shotgun shells.
I shop at Big 5, and the guy in the gun section said they had plenty of stock in the warehouse as well.
I think the issue existed, I also think the media looked for hotspots and stories to tell.
