What an outstanding article on a brilliantly successful challenge by one of our liberty-minded youth;==============http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/the-feds-fall-for-a-pl...This is the trap that 25-year-old Cody Wilson set up for the federal government, and the feds took the bait, hook line and sinker. Apparently not content with having to contend with the NRA, the feds have now aligned themselves against the guardians of the free Internet – The Electronic Frontier Foundation, Julian Assange, Wikileaks, anonymous, et al. It’s going to be an ugly battle, and ultimately the feds are going to lose. Trying to outlaw disseminating instructions for printing plastic guns is as useless as changing your combination to thwart a safe cracker. But more importantly, it misses the point: Wilson isn’t offering printed guns to meet the needs of some untapped market niche of people who are jonesing for plastic guns. He was simply trying to demonstrate the ultimate futility of the government’s attempts to control guns. And because the feds don’t know when to back down from a fight, he’s going to get exactly what he wants.
