U.S. 'crypto-anarchist' sees 3D-printed guns as fundamental right

Aug 02, 2018 - 4:20 PM

Cody Wilson, owner of Defense Distributed, says 3D gun printing defends the U.S. Constitution's first and second amendments – the rights to free speech and to bear arms

(FILES) In this file photo taken on July 11, 2013, software engineer Travis Lerol takes aim with an unloaded Liberator handgun in the backyard of his home in Hanover, Maryland. The Liberator is the first gun that can be made entirely with parts from a 3D printer and computer-aided design (CAD) files downloaded from the Internet.  A US gun rights activist and entrepreneur vowed on July 31, 2018, to fight attempts to block his free publication of blueprints for 3D-printed firearms, as US President Donald Trump signaled he was skeptical about whether the plans should be readily available. / AFP PHOTO / Robert MACPHERSON
