I hope to return to Saturday’s theme in a day or two. I have more upbeat thoughts than I wrote earlier. But deadlines and other realities got in the way.
In the meantime, here are some good things for ya from other people:
“Gun Laws and the Fools of Chelm.” I knew from reading his biographical essays that playwright-scriptwriter-director-producer-Tony-nominee-Oscar-nominee-Pulitzer-Prize-winner David Mamet liked and is knowledgeable about firearms. I remember him writing with regret about missing out on getting some memorabilia of the Fabulous Topperweins. But I figured his was probably an uppercrust gunnery — the “sporting guns for me but no ugly guns for thee” attitude we’ve seen so sadly often. But by damn. The man’s the real deal.
And here’s one of our own, doing a good thing once again. Mark/Greylocke, who earlier came up with the Knoppix Thumb Drive (KTD) Preparedness Project*, is now doing something similar for the First and Second Amendments.
His UTD-1A Project aims to pull together — with your help — a lot of firearm-related information that hoplophobes and control freaks want to ban. Specifically everything related to creating your own firearms, parts, and magazines, whether by machining or printing.
There is a Legislator, (I won’t say whom) who wants to make the printing or making of your own firearms, weapons or parts, ILLEGAL. That is not just restricting your 2nd Amendment Rights, but your 1st Amendment Rights as well. This Legislator wants to make the dissemination of this “INFORMATION” restricted and or illegal.
So what I am going to try to do, is to create another drive. This one will have all the necessary software to machine or print, your files, plus as many of the pertinent files as I can get together.
I will be making them available for ANYONE!!!! Through uploading to one of my cloud accounts plus I will be seeding the files out as torrents as well.
So I am asking for your help. If you know where these files are or have access to them, SEND THEM TO ME.
I am right now downloading the LinuxCNC files and I am going to try to figure out how to set them up on a USB Thumb Drive like the KTD Project. That is going to be taking a LOT of my time. So please I seriously need your help.
And before somebody objects that 3D printing of complete, functional firearms isn’t ready for primetime yet, I’m sure Mark knows that. But this project will cover much more. So help ensure that all manner of information on homemade liberty tools remains in our hands in convenient form, where it can be tucked away against censorship, or bureaucratic/legislative whim. Give Greylocke a hand if you have or know of information to share.
* And don’t forget, if you don’t want to go to all the work of building your own KTD Preparedness drive, you can buy one (or more) ready-made from Scott. Price now $35. Scott’s only making a few dollars per drive for the time-consuming work. But he’s doing a good job. I have one of his drives. NFI, but I totally support these projects.
