America was struck this week with a hail storm of tragedy. This week there were three mass shootings- one in El Paso Texas, one in Dayton Ohio, and one in Gilroy California. The gunmen in these various crimes murdered, in all, at least 32 from the time of writing. So far in 2019 alone, there have been at least 17 deadly mass shootings in America. These bi-monthly cataclysms make America a unique figure amongst first world countries in the most shameful way possible. Among nations with gun control, America tops the list in the category of number mass shootings.

These murders and their following heartaches motivate people to enact restrictive gun legislation in the name of public safety. But this is not the answer. What is less obvious is the way we ought to combat restrictive gun control. The answer lies in the kryptonite to all gun regulation, Cody Wilson’s Ghost Gun

The government is often touted as an entity that guarantees the freedom of its citizens. But the United States’ incarceration rate continues to soar. Today, the country hosts nearly 25% of the world’s prisoners despite having less than 5% of the world’s population. Meanwhile, privacy has become moot as location tracking and unmarked police vehicles become the norm. The government has done nothing to stop this, often passing laws to further restrict freedom.

Luckily, there are some individuals who took it upon their own shoulders to fight for the rights of free people to do as they please. In the past ten years alone, these three individuals have done more to guarantee your freedom than the entire United States government has done in 50 years.

The former head of Defense Distributed took a major step towards gun rights over the past several years. A self-proclaimed crypto-anarchist, Wilson is the creator of the first 3D-printed gun. With Defense Distributed, he has worked for years to produce files capable of printing various weapons. In 2013, Wilson had his first major breakthrough, successfully test-firing a small 3D-printed gun called the Liberator.

CB Radio: The Wild West We Forgot About

CB Radio and Microphone Sit on a Desk

Every year, I go to my parents’ old alma mater in central West Virginia. Outside McCuskey Hall, there’s a grove of enormous oak trees, casting shade on the grassy field. In the fall it is absolutely picturesque. Every year my dad tells me and my sister the same story. When he was in college in the late 80s, he would climb one of the oaks and string up a hammock in the branches. He spent most of his time in these trees with his friends, chatting and practicing dove-calls. But sometimes, he would haul his ham radio (amateur radio) into the branches and talk to kids across the campus or call my mother in the other dorm hall. All the while, he feared to break a major law by ordering a pizza.

A Wikileaks for Everything?

By Mason Mohon | @mohonofficial

The entrepreneurs among us tend to really like Uber. Those that want to revolutionize an aspect of the everyday lives of Americans want to “Uberize” one thing or another. Airbnb became the Uber for hotels. Some have created “Ubers” for anything from dog walking to alcohol delivery (even police, but that’s another future article). All we want to do is make the on-demand version of an aspect of daily life. And it is improving the quality of life in developed countries.
