US government orders removal of Defcad 3D-gun designs
The US government has demanded designs for a 3D-printed gun be taken offline.
The order to remove the blueprints for the plastic gun comes after they were downloaded more than 100,000 times.
That’s my guess, it’s too late.
100,000 accesses/downloads, it’d be like using a bath plug to stop Niagara Falls.
For me personally, I don’t care. I’m not interested. In all probability criminals and terrorists aren’t interested either; they want the real McCoy. Not some mock-up they may or may not blow up in their hands.
School kids may be. They’ll want to experiment as I did with chemistry.
The horse has gone, don’t bother shutting the barn door.
