Over the course of the last few days, the Second Amendment has gotten more than a few massive boosts from American lawmakers.

First, in a stunning decision that came from the usually liberal 9th circuit court, the Second Amendment was interpreted to allow for open carry, at all times, throughout the nation, striking down a Hawaii-originated ordinance that claimed “self defense” could only occur in the home.

And, now, the last minute attempts by the liberal left to block the distribution of 3D printing plans for firearms has been soundly defeated.

Gun control groups lost an emergency bid Friday to block a Texas organization from posting instructions to 3-D print a gun online.

The firm, a non-profit called Defense Distributed, had reached a settlement with the State Department last month that would allow it to publish the plans for their plastic handgun called “The Liberator” on their website — five years after the government first made the group take them down.
The single-shot pistol was made almost entirely out of ABS plastic — the same material Lego bricks are made from — that could be made on a 3-D printer. The only metal parts were the firing pin and a piece of metal included to comply with the Undetectable Firearms Act.
The move to try and intervene in the case by three leading gun organizations — The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety and Giffords, a group founded by former Rep Gabby Giffords — was a last-ditch attempt to thwart Defense Distributed ahead of its expected online release of the blueprints on August 1.
Such a striking and powerful decision will forever change the way we look at the Second Amendment in America, and could usher into an entirely new outlook on what “armed” really means.
