Interview: Cody Wilson, 3D Gun Maker Dropped by Shopify

Published

on

Friday a merchant of 3-D gun blueprints and gun mills posted on Twitter that his online business had been disabled, without contact by the host of his site, Shopify.

“We were a Plus Merchant, which means that was a higher duty of care because of the amount of money we brought in, and I suspect there was third party interference that caused this, said Cody R. Wilson, Civil Rights activist and owner of defcad.com

Wilson said he suspects that it is a third party that caused the reaction to deny him service, based on past experiences with Gun Control groups who lobbied for Shopify to drop him last year.

“Ill have to check the statute of limitation on this to see if I can sue.  I would like to see in Discovery what caused this.  That is the only way I think I will find out why they dropped me,” Wilson said.  “I have a lot of lawsuits right now,” he said. “Well see.”

Wilson’s name has made a recent revival in the news in July, after he won a federal lawsuit against the US State Department, regaining his rights to distribute his plans for 3D Guns.

According to Wired,”In June, the Department of Justice quietly offered Wilson a settlement to end a lawsuit he and a group of co-plaintiffs have pursued since 2015 against the United States government. Wilson and his team of lawyers focused their legal argument on a free speech claim: They pointed out that by forbidding Wilson from posting his 3-D-printable data, the State Department was not only violating his right to bear arms but his right to freely share information. By blurring the line between a gun and a digital file, Wilson had also successfully blurred the lines between the Second Amendment and the First.”

The Washington Post reported Wilson’s mission is to,”Legalize the distribution of weapon-design files that allow Americans to 3-D-print firearms at home, avoiding layers of federal and state gun-control policies like permits and background checks.”

He says providing that to them is his First Amendment to do so.  “We have always been making guns, there are security norms.  I am sorry people are just waking up to the rights we have had.  I do not argue against our security norm. This is a scientific inquiry,” Wilson said to Fox News.

“The Standard is that even the most inflammatory speech is protected by the first amendment unless it is going to produce imminent harm,” Wilson said.

WHY DID SHOPIFY DROP HIM?

Wilson said he suspects that it is a third party that caused the reaction to deny him service, based on past experiences with Gun Control groups who lobbied for Shopify to drop him last year.

“Ill have to check the statute of limitation on this to see if I can sue.  I would like to see in discovery what caused this.  That is the only way I think I will find out why they dropped me,” Wilson said.  “I have a lot of Law Suits right now,” he said.

Wilson told Big League Politics,”There is something called Tortious Interference of Contract.”

As he regained his rights from the Federal Courts, he is being threatened at the state level.  “I seem to replace one lawsuit for four more. But I believe in what I am doing.  This is a culture war and with technology, it is getting away from them,” Wilson said.

“New Jersey is really ahead of squshing rights, but I think the Texas case will be the important one to watch,” he told Big League Politics.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Conservatives Cannot Afford to be Timid

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks. 

Can Americans actually grow a spine for once?
