Guns want to be free: what happens when 3D printing and crypto-anarchy collide?

I remember being briefly surprised the first time I went to Def Con, the world's largest hacker conference, after noticing a large number of attendees sporting pro-gun regalia on their backpacks, cars, and clothing. But in retrospect, the political common ground sometimes shared by hackers and Second Amendment enthusiasts seems like it should be obvious. The event has hosted (both officially and unofficially) a small "Def Con Shoot" gathering just outside of Las Vegas prior to each year's festivities. And the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an advocacy group with a strong presence at Def Con promotes a similar "Don’t Tread On Me" message with regard to digital rights and privacy.

You can have my encryption keys when you pry them from my cold, dead hard drive.
