In case anyone doesn't get the gravity of this situation:

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/31/us/p ... trump.html
Mr. Blumenthal and Mr. Markey were among a group of Democrats who announced they were introducing two separate bills related to 3-D guns: one that would bar the manufacture and sale of any untraceable weapon, and another that would prohibit the online publication of blueprints for the plastic guns.
...80% lowers...

And, this isn't only a 2nd amendment issue. This is a censorship issue, a 1st amendment issue. If they can block the release of these files, who's to say they can't start blocking other types of files? Fahrenheit 451 kind of stuff.

Also, one federal judge today ruled to allow defcad.org to stay up, while another ruled it had to be taken down. So on day 1, we have a disagreement in the court system.
At least someone realizes that this is not a gun issue. Can an individual release their intellectual property to the masses or does the government have the right to censor it? It's not about plastic guns. It's freedom of speech.

Re: 3 D Printed guns in the news

If I understand it the ban was on the plans for making the gun. Is it illegal to have the blueprint for a full auto AK-47? Is it even illegal to have the plans for a nuclear bomb? The issue is technically more one of free speech than gun ownership.
