As expected, the government has acted swiftly to maintain their control by stopping the production of printed firearms. This action is being done through the State Department and not the Department of Justice. I wonder if they will call in the United Nations to enforce this action under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
However, I don’t need a printed firearm: like most sentient people, I already have made the necessary preparations to secure my Liberty. Whether the control is seed/food regulations, medical care, wealth redistribution or every other facet of our lives that this government has taken over, a price will be paid. No amount of tyranny can take Sacred honor.
I know that this measure is a sign that the government is starting to fear the people. And that is the first step.
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 Defcad.org under expert laws known as the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).”
“Until the Department provides Defense Distributed with final [commodity jurisdiction] determinations, Defense Distributed should treat the above technical data as ITAR-controled,” reads the State Department order, seen below in its entirety.
Specifically, the Dept of State claims that under “ITAR, it is unlawful to export any defense article or technical data for which a license or written approval is required without first obtaining the required authorization from the DDTC. Please note that disclosing (including oral or visual disclosure) or transferring technical data to a foreign person, whether in the United States or abroad, is considered an export under [ ] ITAR.” And since by implication this means that all the data can be seen by at least one foreigner, “this means that all such data should be removed from public access immediately.”
