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.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • 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
  • Overview of JStark’s project gun, the FGC-9, “Fuck Gun Control – 9mm”
  • DIY guns are made of a combination of 3D printed components, off the shelf items, and standard gun parts
  • Prospects and importance of DIY ammunition
  • Making a gun barrel with a steel tube and ECM
  • The design and testing process of 3D printed guns, and collaboration using Keybase

3D printing makes it cheaper and easier to make your own gun.

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.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Free speech protects 3D gun printing files, 1st Amendment protects the 2nd Amendment
  • History of homemade and DIY weapons
  • How 3D printing can accelerate total gun control and why that’s a good thing
  • Three categories of 3D printed guns
  • Making 3D printed gun plans for Europeans and Californians
  • Past and present of 3D printed AR-15s and Glocks
  • Why 3D printed gun magazines are important
  • Future goals of 3D printed guns
  • Getting started and supporting 3D gun printing
