Wasting money to "block" something that's been publicly available for years by Clara Bundlechadge - Tue, 31 Jul 2018 23:50:39 EST ID:8Ym2ION5 No.170782 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Last month the Justice Department reached a settlement with Defence Distributed, a company that distributes files for 3D printing and machining homemade firearms. Basically the government caved and finally acknowledged that the files DD created were protected under the first amendment.

Earlier today 9 states attorney generals filed a lawsuit and a judge summarily issued a restraining order to once again prevent DD from distributing their files. Shortly after Trump tweeted his support for banning the 3D printed guns.

Here's the thing, number one IT WAS TRUMP'S OWN ADMINISTRATION THAT SETTLED THE LAWSUIT. Secondly and way way more importantly, THE FILES THEY'RE ARGUING ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE HAVE BEEN FREELY AVAILABLE OVER BITTORRENT FOR YEARS!

So stupid.... The plastic single use gun that started this whole mess years ago is basically a novelty. You'd be lucky to get one shot off with it, and after that the barrel is melted so it becomes garbage. DD does also make files to machine actual metal guns but even then who cares at this point. Up until now mass shooters have had 0 problem just buying guns legally. Jackass Trump pretending he's finally doing something about gun violence. 100% BS and just wasting money at this point.

Well, he doesn't even pretend, well like play pretend maybe. But he doesn't even act like he even is on it. i bet the right wing of the attorney generals are only in it because they (right wingers) don't do shit, accomplish nothing, Screw everything up, never research anything.

I've got no problem with these files being released.

The only people who'd actually go through with printing one of those moronic tech abortions are idiots.

Now they'll be blind idiots when it explodes and fills their face full of PVC shrapnel.

I suspect that Trump is tweeting against 3D printed guns is because Wayne LaPierre probably called him and said, "Hey these fuckers are going to kill our business, get rid of the shit before it's a problem." It's really interesting because now we're going to see Libertarians splinter from mainstream Republicans over this. Maybe. I don't know. I shouldn't try to predict anything these days.

Any sub-60IQ hillbilly with a scrap pile and a few power tools can put together a firearm. Making a gun isn't some super-secret esoteric science. Shit, you can slap together a shotgun with a couple steel pipes, a couple bungee cords, duct tape, an end cap and a nail.

This is hysterics. Plain and simple. "Oh noes, someone is gonna make shitty single-shot plastic guns!" Also, the blueprints were already out for a while. Cat's out of the bag and there's no putting it back in again. People should be focusing less on the types of guns out there (With automatic and military issue shit being obvious exceptions) and focusing more on restricting possession for individuals who are prone to violence, have a history of violence or have mental disorders that make them having access to a firearm a threat to public safety. There also needs to be a cultural shift on how people in the US view firearms.

However, again, if someone wants a boomstick there's not a whole lot to stop them from getting one.

No, Wayne LaPierre probably told him "we don't really fucking care and neither do our members"

I hang around a lot of gun collectors and other general gun nuts and literally none of them care about 3D printed guns. In gun nut circles they're pretty much just a big joke. It's a cheap chinese knockoff of the single shot liberator pistols they made in the 1940s, that doesn't even really work all that well.

You know what gun nuts care about right now? The upcoming CMP 1911 program application. (Gee golly gosh why hasn't that gotten any media attention? You'd think democrats would be frothing at the mouth to bash a government program to sell military surplus weapons to civvies)

You know what they don't care about? Cheap plastic guns being made by techno-retards on cheap and shitty 3D printing equipment.

This. Technically you can make a "ghost shotgun" out of a length 3/8" cast iron pipe and a finish nail. Where's the outrage? Why aren't we filing legal injunctions to suppress the home depot from selling cast iron pipe?

Basically as it stands fast food is already the worst possible job you could have if you lived in a place like the United States. For people who usually aren't even allotted a bathroom break in their 8-12 hour work days, franchise owners have somehow managed to make working in fast food an even more oppressive endeavor.

>Under a no-poach pact, companies agree to not hire away each other’s workers.
>The companies were asked to detail any no-poach pacts, including being asked whether they informed employees of potential agreements.
>Restaurant workers make a median of $9.81 per hour and $20,410 annually, according to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
>The U.S. Justice Department has said that no-poach agreements are illegal under antitrust law since they restrict competition for employees and potentially deprive workers of better job opportunities. They have been found previously in the railroad industry and among some tech companies.
And what a surprise, most of the states being investigated happen to have large populations of economically disadvantaged minorities.
>Jurisdictions in the probe include California, District of Columbia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island

>3. If unemployment rises as a result of automation, you can be sure more 'commies' will come out of the woodwork and social instability and crime will be an inevitable result of that increased unemployment.
I mean, a basic income would be the desirable result, but yeah, if people aren't working and have no money, then crime will rise.

It all ties back to the fact that our corporate masters are giving us just enough of a carrot to keep us from revolting, but more and more people are becoming hip to the fact that, based on corporate earnings, ou they're getting our work at a huge discount.

People assume development of automation technology means more welfare but it usually means more people struggling. For instance what they described in list 3. Is exactly what happened when farm work became largerly machine work, look if up and study what happened during the depression for real for real cause most people act like it was just something that happened, an almost natural occurrence, which aint true. People also make this assumption about the Irish patatoe famine.

Like how there was plenty of other food available besides potatoes, but they were for export, so let the peons starve.

Concerning unemployment figures, it depends on which stats you check since the main one disincludes people who've given up looking for work. So the unemployment rate is alot bigger than the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics' metric.

Just as Hugh >>170750 pointed out, alot of employment is now through temporary, part-time labor. After the Great Recession there was a major shift from full-time permanent jobs to temp low hours, variable, or seasonal work. So the temp workforce is even more precarious and on top of that could easily be brought in to fill positions of full-time permanent workers who are on strike or disobedient.

(>>170551) Union jobs also have clauses in their contracts that disallow union workers from doing strikes or work stoppages or slowdowns. So the union barely negotiates on our behalf, with little to no input from the people they represent, and at the same time their contract allows the higher-ups to fire people if they rock the boat too much.

(>>170284) If you try to start your own union in a workplace already with a union, it wont be long before everyone trying to organize their own union is fired without the official union backing them up. Of course there are exceptions such as IWW, which is a shell of its former glory. The history of its failure is an interesting one. The new direction of trying to organize in small businesses and even do prison solidarity work is promising though.

He noticed a pattern after being near-droned in his office, at a location he was shooting a story, while driving his car, his new office, and again at outside a FSA-held college.
(also getting a tip from a Turkish air base that the US launches drones from.)

Well they have openly put Americans on the kill list, supposedly though those lists were for reserved for high ranking terrorists. Absolutely not a surprise though. Hopefully this lawsuit affords him some temporary protection if nothing else.

Govt is likely just gonna cite state privilege regarding the list so lawsuit probably won't go very far unfortunately.

Guy's best chance at safety is to just stay out of any fucking warzones. There'd probably be questions if he got droned in Paris or Brussels.

In a weird way, this is a prime chance for him to get asylum in a nice west European country
