Less than two months after the end of net neutrality and the kid gloves are off. Americans who are exercising their second amendment rights are no longer protected by the first amendment because won't somebody please think of the children and our NRA backed president doesn't seem to care at all. Our last line of defense turned out out to be as worthwhile as The Maginot Line.
Federal judge blocks publication of 3-D printed gun blueprints


A federal judge on Monday blocked a Texas-based company from making digital blueprints for 3-D printed firearms publicly available online.

The decision effectively criminalizes publication of the 3-D designs for guns, banning Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson from posting the digital files on the Internet. The legal controversy has sparked a national conversation about the implications of untraceable plastic guns and constitutional rights.

The decision, in favor of attorneys general from 19 states and the District of Columbia, stems from a lawsuit filed July 30 against the State Department, which had agreed to allow Defense Distributed to publish an arsenal of firearms blueprints online in a planned settlement.

The states argued that the release of 3-D printable designs threatened national security and abridged states’ ability to pass and police gun laws. On July 31, Judge Robert S. Lasnik of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, citing risks to public safety, granted the attorneys general’s request.

The legal battle over weapon-design files dates back to 2013, when Wilson manufactured the first printed handgun. Days after Wilson made the blueprints available online, the federal government demanded that he remove the files. Wilson did, then sued the State Department. In June, the federal government reversed course and entered into an agreement permitting Wilson to publish his firearm blueprints online. He intended to do so Aug. 1.

Hours before he planned to publish, Lasnik stopped him.

Monday’s order ignored the brief filed by the Department of Justice, which accused the states of misunderstanding the terms of the State Department settlement and attempting to exceed their constitutional powers by restricting a person from sharing information with other Americans.
“This case is not about the regulation of U.S. persons who wish to utilize a 3-D printer to manufacture their own small-caliber firearms. Rather, this case concerns the Department of State’s delegated authority to control the export of defense articles and services, or technical data related thereto, that raise military or intelligence concerns,” wrote the Department. “The domestic harms about which Plaintiffs are allegedly concerned are not properly regulated by the Department under current law.”
Still, Attorney General Jeff Sessions reiterated that it is illegal to manufacture plastic guns that are undetectable.

“We will not stand for the evasion, especially the flouting, of current law and will take action to ensure that individuals who violate the law by making plastic firearms and rendering them undetectable, will be prosecuted to the fullest extent,” Sessions said in a statement Thursday.

Wilson’s critics said his plan could put unregulated and difficult-to-detect weapons in the wrong hands.

Gun-control supporters, such as the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, also argued that 3-D printed weapons — that avoid layers of federal and state gun-control policies, such as permits and background checks — are not “typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes,” and, therefore, are not protected under the Second Amendment.

as much as i like jpegs and their trippy artifacts, whoever decided to resave that pic as one is retarded and whoever reposted the image without realizing that it was fucked is is clearly not involved in 3d printing and saved the image for some other use.
