00:00 / 00:50:52
Death Is Not The Worst Of Evils
In an age of risk aversion and talkers, JStark1809 stands out as a man taking big risks, working tirelessly to build a gun that can be made at home, almost anywhere in the world, regardless of gun control laws. He calls it the FGC-9. Can you guess what those three letters stand for? JStark is a modern European in an American Revolutionary War general’s body.
The story and meaning of “Live free or die – Death is not the worst of evils” said by General John Stark in 1809
Europe has an anti-gun culture because of its historically hierarchical society and the emigration of “free men” to America

This episode is one a lot of our gun listeners have been waiting for. Today we speak with a man known only as “Ivan The Troll”. He has emerged as one of the most prolific, innovative, and controversial members of Deterrence Dispensed, a decentralized 3D gun printing group built in the image of Cody Wilson’s Defense Distributed. Multiple social media companies have banned him from their platforms including Twitter, Reddit, Youtube, and Facebook. In response, he and other members of Deterrence Dispensed have migrated to encrypted chat and file sharing applications. Ironically, these apps have enabled greater innovation, testing, and sharing of 3D printed guns and files.
