Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

This company just won a huge case in court. Giving them the right to upload digital plans for any gun. This guys been around for awhile, and is an uber 2nd ammendment supporter. But winning this case has been a long battle and is a huge win for free speech and gun rights.

Thank you that is a great article. I had heard about the case but I had did not know about the resolution of it.

I can see where a lot of firearm parts including frames can be made by polymers now but the question I've always had deals with ammunition.
I imagined ammunition cases can be printed, projectiles can be made with lead molds. However primers can't be printed Clear Lake powder can't be printed.

What about barrels slides in other high-pressure items?

My favorite part. https://www.dailywire.com/news/32872/do ... stigiacomo
TheDailyWire wrote: Moreover, in the settlement, "the government expressly acknowledges that non-automatic firearms up to .50-caliber – including modern semi-auto sporting rifles such as the popular AR-15 and similar firearms – are not inherently military," notes a press release from the Second Amendment Foundation. In other words, the handful of liberal states that currently ban "assault weapons" like the AR-15, such as New York state via the SAFE Act, could potentially face legal challenges.

Sounds like a solid win for gun builders.
