States Sue to Block Downloads of 3D-Printed Gun Instructions

Defense Distributed, the company making the blueprints available online, filed its own suit in Texas on Sunday, asserting that it is the victim of an "ideologically fueled program of intimidation and harassment" that violates the company's First Amendment rights. Cody Wilson, the founder of a pro-gun group, agreed to stop posting any new blueprints online until September while a multi-state lawsuit makes its way through the courts.
Separately, 21 state attorneys general sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday, saying that the State Department's decision was "deeply unsafe and could have an unprecedented impact on public safety".
Officials are anxious that these "ghost guns" lack serial numbers, making them untraceable by law enforcement, and that plastic weapons may be impervious to metal detectors in airports.
Before the settlement, the federal government in both the Obama and Trump administrations maintained that the online "technical data" used to 3-D print the guns amounted to an illegal gun export, since anyone halfway around the world could access it.
The lawsuit states that "Defense Distributed has sought to bypass these established legal requirements to instantaneously deliver real, operational firearms to any Pennsylvanian with an internet connection and a 3D printer".
The Veterans Advisory Council for Everytown for Gun Safety described the printable, hard-to-trace guns as a threat to national security and public safety. The lawsuit states that "among these controls are criminal laws, including the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act". While the blueprints were supposed to be published on August 1, he says they were uploaded to Defense Distributed on July 27, though some states have blocked access to the site.
People can use the blueprints to manufacture plastic guns using a 3D printer. "Federal law requires rational decision making, the Trump administration doesn't do that", Ferguson said.
The letter argued the plans will let terrorists, criminals and individuals seeking to do harm have "unfettered access to print and manufacture unsafe firearms". They said the Trump administration had failed to explain why it settled the case and that its decision violated their ability to regulate firearms and keep citizens safe.

President Trump weighs in on 3D-printed guns. "Already spoke to NRA, doesn't seem to make much sense!" the President tweeted Tuesday, without offering further details about what he'll do about the weapons. Wilson posted the plans for his gun, called the Liberator, onto his website, where the plans were downloaded thousands of times.
The company's website says it will relaunch today after the settlement with the State Department.
"People think that 3D printers are these magic machines that can make anything like a Star Trek replicator".
New Jersey's state attorney general and a Texas-based organization are battling over the release of instructions for a 3D printed gun.
Gutowski added that the majority of guns produced with the aid of 3D printers are detectable with metal detectors as other firearms are.
Plans for 3-D printed guns will be legally available for download Wednesday following a settlement between the federal government and a gun-rights group.
But Democrats called the law weak and said gun users can get around it by using weapons with a removable metal block that the gun doesn't need in order to function.
