How a 3D model scared the state.

I came across an article linked off of Bing News that was headlined:

US: Security fears over how 3D gun developed by Texas anarchist could play into hands of Isis

Already skeptical, since the word “anarchist” was used (the media loves to associate anarchism with things that fear you), I dove into the article with my eyes open.  I immediately look for the article they source the information off of, as this is generally a tactic used to put some sort of spin on a pre-existing article or report.

The source is from The Daily Mirror, which is a UK based news outlet.

The Yahoo article describes how:

Cody Wilson, 27, says he has developed the 3D modelling process which allows gun parts to be created from a digital file that can be downloaded anywhere.

There’s a whole bunch in the article, and it’s all designed to make you afraid. Look at some of the triggers used in the Yahoo article: US Security fears, airport scanners, ISIS. All the spooky things you’re told about daily.

The article even goes so far as to say

British security experts told the paper that it posed a risk for the UK given how fears are growing that Isis could launch a Paris-style massacre in London.

Here’s the best line out of the whole thing:

And revealing his contempt for potential victims, the anarchist law student said he was “not really” ­bothered if the weapons, which cannot be picked up by airport scanners, fell into the hands of terrorist gangs.

So let me get this straight: a guy makes a 3D model that lets people anywhere make terrible quality weaponry where the firing pins actually have to be constructed with shoddy home equipment, and I’m supposed to believe that the reason this man isn’t bothered if the weapons fall into their hands is that he has contempt for potential victims? I’m not buying that bridge you’re trying to sell.

The real reason, if he truly is an anarchist, that he doesn’t feel at all bothered by the idea of his weapons going to ISIS, is because the US government supplied ISIS with all of their weapons already. These toy 3D printed models are nothing compared to the massive amounts of firepower that they have been provided with by the very government that uses them to instill fear in its populace. ISIS has no interest in using anything but fine American firepower, paid for with printed petrodollars stolen from the very citizens at the receiving end of this propaganda.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Your government created a boogie man. Now, they’re taking your guns away under the guise of progressivism and warning you that any attempt at circumventing their tight controls might make the boogieman scarier.

Oh, and if you disagree with any part of the idea, you must be scum who has “contempt for potential victims.” All of this scary stuff is associated with Anarchy, since they wouldn’t want you believing you don’t need them.

Give me a break. What they’re really saying is, they don’t want everyone to have access to weapons, because then they lose control.
