How can the NRA or other people want to prohibit a gun when we’re supposed to be pro gun, we’re supposed to say that any gun is good in the right person’s hands? How can they say that a gun should be prohibited? How hypocritical is that?
Maryland gun store owner Andy Raymond • Discussing (in a drunken YouTube rant that has since been removed) his frustration with second-amendment supporters who protested his store’s decision to carry the Armatix “smart gun,” a device that will only fire if the person firing is wearing a special wristwatch to do so. Their concern? If the technology goes mainstream, it will become mandatory.

“While the act burdens the plaintiffs’ Second Amendment rights, it is substantially related to the important governmental interest of public safety and crime control.” — U.S. District Judge Alfred Covello, in a ruling in favor of keeping Connecticut’s post-Sandy Hook gun laws on the books.

If you take a family photo like this, you’re probably running for governor in Colorado like State Sen. Greg Brophy (second from right).
EDIT: His campaign website is actually pretty cool and reflects his love of cycling in a clever way. Surprisingly, guns are buried further down the page. Why couldn’t he have taken a cool family photo with everyone riding bikes?

The State Department has asked Defense Distributed to take down its controversial 3D-printed gun blueprint. “I immediately complied and I’ve taken down the files,” said the group’s Cody Wilson. “But this is a much bigger deal than guns. It has implications for the freedom of the web.”

This has definitely been our most well-received download. I don’t think any of us predicted it would be this much.
Defense Distributed-affiliated developer Haroon Khalid • Discussing the success of the controversial group’s 3D-printed gun blueprints, which have been downloaded 100,000 times since they were released over the weekend. The distribution method isn’t without controversy, either: The group’s files are being hosted on Kim Dotcom’s Mega service. One member of Congress, Rep. Steve Israel, wants to ban such devices.

Security checkpoints, background checks, and gun regulations will do little good if criminals can print plastic firearms at home and bring those firearms through metal detectors with no one the wiser. …Now that this technology appears to be upon us, we need to act now to extend the ban on plastic firearms.
New York Democratic Rep. Steve Israel • Calling for a ban on plastic firearms fashioned through the use of 3D printers. The first wholly 3D-printed gun has been produced by Cody Wilson, a 25-year-old law student at the University of Texas, who gave Forbes magazine an inside look at its production. The blue and white colored plastic gun, which looks a great deal more like a toy than a potentially lethal weapon, has been named “the Liberator” by Wilson, who runs a company that intends to release the CAD (computer-aided design) file for the do-it-yourself gun online, free for all. Which means with a 3D printer (available for just $1,300 or so these days), and a modicum of practice, whatever background check system the U.S. does have, however spotty, might be circumvented entirely. Rep. Israel urgently wants this avoided, by an expansion of the Undetectable Firearms Act of 1988, to include passages specific to 3D-printed guns. source
