  • Quote of the Day

    Posted by Lexington Green on July 21st, 2008 (All posts by )

    The international gun control movement keeps working on gun grabbing with an eye to eventually killing off the 2nd amendment. It’s a King Canute enterprise because the technology for distributed manufacturing is coming and guns are inevitably going to be on the list of things to build right along every other tool. Once every man can be a gunsmith simply by hitting print on a computer, the foolishness of control efforts via law instead of via personal responsibility will have been fully exposed.

      I’m not so sure about this. It seems to me that if Photoshop can be engineered to block the printing of images of currency, then distributed manufacturing software can be similarly engineered to block the production of guns or other weapons. I, for one, fully expect gun controllers to pursue this avenue vigorously.

      That’s why open source rules! Photoshop might refuse to print currency, but that just means you have to wake up the Gimp!
