Why are 3D plans for making a plastic firearm a constitutional right?

  • The guy selling the plans is defying a judges order!...

    I donít get it, those who can legally buy a gun surely wouldnít want to pay the price for the plans to make a junky plastic gun!....it sounds like a novelty to me.

    Criminals might find them useful, but by the time they invest in an expensive printer and the cost to print one they probably couldnít get someone to pay the price for one.

    Iíd say just having a set of the plans to build a toy car, like a matchbox, might net more value...at least there is a market for toys like that.

  • The zip guns used the be the weapon of choice by street gangs for disposable, non-traceable 22 caliber hits.

  • There is no law against making your own gun for personal use.

    You cannot sell it or give it to others, but you can make one for yourself.

    There are people who make $30 Home Depot shotguns just to turn them in at gun buybacks and get $200 for them.

    I don't see a first amendment violation, certainly a violation of the second, but these are the same courts who found a right to kill your baby in the constitution.

  • Good catch QuietMike, I read the article, saw them say 1st amendment but translates it to 2nd in my mind.

    Well, hell, He isn't selling the gun only the blue prints to making one. How many idiots do you think could actually make one, and if they did it would only fire one round then wouldn't be safe enough to try firing it again.

    Where is there a clause in the constitution that says you can't draw, copy and sell blueprints to anything? That comes under the 1st amendment right.

    The 2nd amendment only says no state can infringe upon your right to keep and bear arms. The right to bear arms was given to everyone by God to give us the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    The Constitution does not and can not take away any rights that are recognized as our rights. The constitution protects our rights that were given to us by God.

    The Constitution stops the States and Feds from infringing upon our rights.

    That's why they can't pass stricter gun control laws. They can but they don't apply to everyone.

    Congress and State Legislators can make all the bills they want to on gun control. However, all those bills become law and published in the code books. They are the US Codes, Codes of Federal Regulations, Internal Revenue Codes, State Code Books and the Uniform Commercial Codes. All these codes apply to certain persons, like all Government Employees, Officers and officials, Federal Citizens (14th amendment citizens) and immigrants. They also apply to idiots who don't know they are not 14th Amendment Citizens and person who can't protect their rights or know what they are.

    So about half of the population are bound by the codes. The codes don't mean anything to the persons who violate the law. If they are going to kill someone, what do they care about the law or codes?

    To quote A2: "shall not be infringed ". Trying to stop people from making their own guns is an infringement. Personally, I would never go to all that trouble for one shot. But if someone else wants to, go for it. Just make sure your insurance hasn't lapsed cause you might well end up in the ER. I prefer the precision and safety of store bought.
