Q&D Sheriff's Protest Badge - Parametric
by MichaelAtOz, published
I had some Thing at hand so massaged it a bit, and Hey Presto, a ***Quick & Dirty Protest Badge***.
So now the NRA can print themselves a ````badge of honour```` to wear.
Gun fights at the School Corral...
mutter mutter mutter
All the bad guy is going to do is take out the armed School Guard as sniper practice... (...so then I suppose the NRA will want guards with Assault rifles prone on all four corners, why not pill-boxes...Predators circling with hellfire...)
"Thinking is man's only basic virtue, from which all the others proceed. And his basic vice, the source of all his evils, is that nameless act which all of you practice, but struggle never to admit: the act of blanking out, the willful suspension of one's consciousness, the refusal to think; not blindness, but the refusal to see; not ignorance, but the refusal to know. It is the act of unfocusing your mind and inducing an inner fog to escape the responsibility of judgment on the unstated premise that a thing will not exist if only you refuse to identify it, that A will not be A so long as you do not pronounce the verdict 'It is evil'."
(though I am using this as a point to reflect on the acts of the directors of the NRA, refusing to see A is A)
As whats-his-name said, something has to change.
(Yes I know there aren't that many eight pointed Sheriffs badges, that just makes this one better!)

I disagree with your sentiment on the badge, but I disagree more with the reception it's gotten in the comments. I don't think there is anything more American than putting your [printer] where your mouth is. I think art's role in society is to reflect and (at times) to repudiate. You sir, are true artist in my book and I would rather see you post a hundred things I disagree with rather than one more "I don't have a 3D printer but here is this unprintable piece of digital art that I've uploaded anyway" from others. Please keep exercising your first amendment rights in a creative way. :-)

Fiddle with the text and sizes, compile, render print.
(you will need write.scad from thingiverse.com/thing:16193)
edit/ Added a raised text version so you can just use a marker to highlight the text /edit
If you want to wear it, I'd suggest some of those velcro dots and a safety pin.
