Seattle Judge Emulates King Canute, And Open Thread

As I mentioned back in February,

Gun Control Is Undead And Technologically Absurd

And a Federal Judge has just beclowned himself, and arguably, violated his oath.

A Federal Judge Launches a Futile, Unconstitutional Effort to Block Blueprints for 3D-Printed Guns

By David French | The National Review

If there’s a hall of fame for futile, symbolic, and ultimately unconstitutional federal court orders, the temporary restraining order just issued in Seattle blocking Defense Distributed and the Second Amendment Foundation from posting blueprints for 3D-printed guns deserves at least a plaque, if not a full display. The court’s order temporarily overturns a Trump administration legal settlement that reversed an Obama-era policy designed mainly to limit the spread of the relevant files abroad, not here at home.

Indeed.  I have a copy of the file in question.  It’s not hard to come by.

…Oh, and Open Thread.
