Well, now. Isn’t this interesting?
Cody Wilson, famous for making and popularizing the first 3D-printed plastic handgun (I profiled him at length in Reason’s December 2013 issue), and his group Defense Distributed today debuted their latest provocation aimed at making gun possession easier, cheaper, and most importantly more outside the totalizing view of the state.
Wilson and his team were inspired by a proposed law that passed the California House and Senate but which Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed yesterday. The law, known as the “ghost gun” bill, would have banned guns without serial numbers filed with the government of any sort, as well as forcing those who do make homemade weapons to go through new procedures and background checks and getting federal Department of Justice approval before doing so.
