You Can't Stop The Signal, Feds. (Liberator 3-D Printed Pistol)

The Feds, reportedly, have pulled the zipfile from

Two brave bloggers (Joel Huffmann and Rob Allen) have posted it. I join them.

Molon labe.

As Tech Crunch reports, “the State Department has demanded that new blueprints for a fully 3-D-printed gun be taken offline just a week after they were posted. The Office of Defense Trade Controls Compliance is forcing outspoken Second Amendment crusader Cody Wilson to remove the downloadable 3-D printer files from under expert laws known as the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).”

Note: I have posted these files as an act of free speech, and I claim my 1st Amendment rights to do so.

I am not a lawyer, but this is what I understand: If you use these files, and you are not a Special Occupational Taxpayer, make these only for yourself, not for sale or trade.  And if you do, include a metal part (the firing pin) as DefCAD recommends, or you will be in violation of the (unconstitutional) Federal law against "undetectable firearms."  In fact, I recommend you paint your 3D printed guns with shiny metal paint, just so this stupid "undetectable" talking point is completely defeated.

Here is a link to the US BATFE regs on making your own firearm, 3-D-printed or otherwise.  Thousands of us have made our own firearms before.  The plans have been on the Internet for years.  Why now?  Because they're skeered, that's why.
