    Comment on Defense Distributed, Sued By 21 States, Appeals for Help to Continue the Fight by c4v3man /Link



    @16V "That people don’t instantly recognize him as just another self-interested carnival barker is really beyond comprehension." Cody is absolutely stirring things up that does have negative side affects for both the tech industry, as well as the firearms industry. I'd agree even that my opinion, not knowing the man personally, is that Cody is trying to make a name for himself and is stirring the pot just for fame. Regardless of how we got here, we are in fact here now. While I may not support Cody directly, I do support both the 1st and 2nd amendment implications of this case. DefDist needs to win this case or there will be significant repercussions for both hobby gunmaking, 3d printing of all types, as well as free speech. While I can appreciate the desire to have the "pot slowly boiled" as our rights are eroded, there's certainly a benefit to forcing the opposition to turn up the heat faster. The question is, do you remain in the pot to be boiled alive, or do you fight for what is right. Obviously limiting firearms production to multi-million dollar companies isn't going to keep guns out of criminals hands, so why can't it be free? Why can't you make a gun in your garage? What exactly are they afraid of? Advancing technology does make gun control somewhat of a moot point. By eroding the false dream that somehow criminals can't get guns it puts the focus on treating the actual issue: violent individuals being released to become repeat offenders. If you can't in good conscience release a violent felon because he can print up a gun in his garage, then maybe you keep him in prison? Maybe you reintroduce the death penalty? If some kid in high school keeps beating up other students and is making death threats, maybe you need to get them the psychiatric help they need, or hold them accountable for their violent behavior rather than say "he's just a kid, it's not like he can get a gun and shoot up the school". So sure, perhaps Cody is a bit of a sideshow act... but maybe the important thing isn't the man in front of the lawsuit, but instead the idea of gun control in and of itself. That is why I do support DefDist in this case, and why we need to win this so badly. And it's not like the NRA is likely to support this case, not when you can buy a nice pump action shotgun from the "Freedom Group" which is all you really need... Heck you just might print a bumpstock on that 3d printer, and we know the NRA's stance on that piece of plastic...
