It should also be noted, the lead attorney is Alan Gura.

Thank you for pointing that out. I like how Gura/SAF is bringing in multiple lines of tactical leverage for 2A rights, like his brief in Palmer, I believe, highlighting how 2A has relevance to the history of other civil rights.

Note that it says Electronic Frontier Foundation is supporting Wilson, also.

The DVD CSS code became wide spread when a judge ruled it as free speech - essentially programners can represent ideas in code as a way of discussion - the fact that a computer can read the code and act on it was not enough to restrict the programmrr's 1A rights.

I suspect this ruling will be the same - 1A protection given to the g-code - the fact that a machine can read and act on it will be inmaterial.

If ITAR is a treaty would it not be unconstitutional or at the very least need to be re-worked since the agreement was in place far before the ease of sharing information was in the state that it is in. Its not like anyone thought to put up borders or walls on the internet to prevent information from spreading from point a to point b.

ITAR is US Federal law and not a treaty or cooperation effort.

Get 'em while you still can

Gun Digest Book of Exploded Gun Drawings, 3rd Edition

As loosely defined in the Federal Register /Vol. 80, No. 106 /Wednesday, June 3, 2015 / Proposed Rules

Quote:
2. Revised Definition of Technical Data International Traffic in Arms: Revisions to Definitions of Defense Services, Technical Data, and Public Domain; Definition of Product of Fundamental Research; Electronic Transmission and Storage of Technical Data; and Related Definitions

Finally, the Department proposes to address the electronic transmission and storage of unclassified ‘‘technical data’’ via foreign communications infrastructure. This rulemaking proposes that the electronic transmission of unclassified ‘‘technical data’’ abroad is not an ‘‘export,’’ provided that the data is sufficiently secured to prevent access by foreign persons.
