Jackson's Bistro is the nicest restaurant within walking distance of the Tampa Convention Center, and right now, at lunchtime, it is overrun with soldiers in fatigues. The place is like an anthill. From the elevated bar, where I am waiting for the host to grant me a blessed table, you can see a line of soldiers ...
The world's first 3D-printed gun was successfully fired in 2013, about 18 years after 3D printing entered the mass market. The gun was created by a controversial group called Defense Distributed, which made the gun on a printer the organization bought on eBay for $8,000. At the time, the group's founder ...

3D printed guns are a bit of a self-invented self-fulfilling prophecy by the media whereby enough attention will result in money and supporters being directed to increase the effort of 3D printing guns. 3D printing guns will only be an actual thing to worry about if the media has generated enough interest in it ...
Taaki worked on the project with Cody Wilson, the inventor of the 3-D printed gun. Many people raved about the compartmentalization Dark Wallet offered, but banks and intelligence agencies added Wilson and Taaki to their list of high-risk individuals. Then, at the height of the development process, the ...
On this week's If Then, Slate's April Glaser and Will Oremus try to make sense of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's rare honest assessment of his company's shortfalls, and what new state regulations mean for self-driving cars and trucks. Cody Wilson, the man behind the first 3-D–printed gun, joins the hosts to talk ...
According to Cargill, the price of bitcoin and gun purchases had a direct correlation: both increased at the same time. Defense Distributed's Cody Wilson, who achieved infamy by making the world's first 3D-printed gun, reached a similar conclusion. But blockchain's technology is a double-edged sword.

And why is a 3D-printed gun speech? I'm not saying guns are speech. What we developed and shared online was not the gun, it was the files that could create the gun. The pieces of software that could be used. Sharing that software was a political speech act, and because it can be changed and evaluated ...
The deaths of 17 victims in the Florida school shooting this week sparked yet another round of the gun control debate in the United States. Largely due to New Zealand's more restrictive regulation of gun ownership, it's a debate that doesn't often stretch to this side of the world. However, with the rise of 3D ...
Back in January, homemade firearms organization Defense Distributed was dealt a blow when the Supreme Court turned down the chance to intervene in its 3D printed guns court case. That decision meant Defense Distributed v. State would be sent back to the western district of Texas, which leaves the ...

Defense Distributed calls on Supreme Court to lift ban of sharing 3D printed gun files ... While elsewhere in the world, 3D printed guns and firearms are a more or less black and white topic—people are not allowed to make or own unregistered guns, therefore untraceable 3D printed guns are illegal—within ...
The Supreme Court is scheduled to consider a cert petition in Defense Distributed v. State Department as part of its conference today. A little over a year ago, I wrote a post for Lawfare detailing the case, which arose out of the federal government's attempts to regulate the practice of 3-D printing firearms.

Defense Distributed sued the State Department after the department asked it to remove its CAD files for 3-D printed guns from the internet. The State Department said the company needed to get prior approval before posting the files online because they potentially included technical data related to defense ...
With the proper equipment and knowledge, someone could use the CAD files to create a 3D-printed gun. The government quickly ordered the files removed (under threat of severe penalties) because it determined that the files ran afoul of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which prevent ...
While it is certainly proper for the government to prohibit telling the North Koreans how to make a nuclear bomb, Defense Distributed believes that the government went too far in extending ITAR to cover CAD files for small, 3D-printed guns.

In the darker corners of the Internet where search engines cannot go, black markets offer pistols, machine guns, even explosives — and most worrisome to security researchers, computer aided design, or CAD, files for 3D-printed guns. A new report from RAND looked at 811 weapons listings on a dozen ...
Watching all of these criminals, each with unique skill sets, defending the Artemis and each other from The Wolf King and his goons using knives and 3D-printed guns should make for the kind of creative action movie that stands out from the crowd. There is something tongue-in-cheek about the whole thing, ...
"That taken in account, the legislators have to have the tough conversations regarding gun control, and I support them in those conversations.
