Thanks for the response!
I think Cody’s Liberator project is mostly a publicity stunt, because plastic guns simply aren’t functional. Went into that here:
Stop Freaking Out About 3D Printed Guns
The latest Handwaving Freakoutery over guns appears to be the news that Cody Wilson won his court settlement against…
Where Cody’s real juice is, in my opinion, is in the pre-loaded CNC machines. As I’m admittedly very prepper-minded, I can definitely see a use for having the milling and forging apparatus of guns decentralized, as a hedge against tyranny/war/anarchy. But in truth, we’ve already got so many guns out in circulation that we probably don’t need it anyway. In a very real sense, the Second Amendment was purely a path to get to where we are now, and it’s honestly no longer necessary. We’ve got our arms in place. It’s a done deal.
My take on rifle prepping is here:
The Surprisingly Solid Mathematical Case of the Tin Foil Hat Gun Prepper
Or, “Who Needs an AR-15 Anyway?”
Where Cody’s vision is going to have the most impact is obviously overseas, in my opinion.
