“Anarchist” Gunsmith asks you to “Download This Gun”

There are philosophical reasons why I have a hard time accepting Cody Wilson’s claim to being a “crypto-anarchist” but I’ll let him self-identify as such. What Mr. Wilson has done is produce a 3D printable lower receiver for an AR15 rifle. Now, I am not advocating what he’s doing. Frankly a gun is not what we need to print. We need the ability to refuse governments the right to invoke violence on our behalf, not invoke it ourselves. Having said this, the power of the technology to utterly disrupt conventional regulatory mechanisms is a thing of beauty.
