Well it is apparently a law that criminalizes the distribution of information, but I can find no information on it whatsoever.

Edit - It allows a criminal penalty based on the "intent" of the person distributing information. But I can't find the bill so I can't find what kinds of "information" or "intent" it is talking about.

That's because distributing information about it is illegal!

You have been warned!

Don't understand why this would restrict the information I was looking for though?


Shooting skills are next on the list.

So if you share information on a SPAS-12, which is a 'desctructive device', you will go to jail???

Looks that way. Teach someone how to shoot a USAS 12, and go to jail.

Illegal information? Wasn't there some law or something that made all information legal? I forget.

As much as I would like to think such legislation would be ruled unconstitutional, I won't get my hopes up.

My local public library used to have a copy of "The Anarchists Cookbook." Don't know if they still do. Probably stopped stocking it since they had to replace it about every six months due to theft...

Well, it looks like its time to go down load the Anarchist's Cookbook...


Before this gets enacted, I still want Philo to teach me how to make Plutonium from common household chemicals.

It is not as frightening that the particular information is illegal as the fact that society is now not only allowing laws about the distribution of information, but probably cheering it.

Step by step.
