Blueprints for 3D printed guns to be legally available at midnight

States sue to block sale of 3D-printed weapon designs online

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he is "looking into" the idea of a company providing plans for 3D plastic guns to the public, declaring it "doesn't seem to make much sense!".

Trump's State Department, however, is responsible for allowing the postings from Defense Distributed, a Texas group that has fought the federal government for years for the right to put "blueprints" for 3D printed guns online.

Now it's Sen. Blumenthal's turn, and he claims that 3D printed gun files mark the end of TSA keeping Americans safe on airplanes.

"The Firearms Act requires that a business, museum, or organization must have a firearms business licence to manufacture ammunition, firearms, restricted or prohibited weapons, or prohibited devices".

US District Judge Robert Lasnik issued a temporary restraining order halting the release hours before the 1 August deadline, saying the blueprints could fall into the wrong hands. During a news conference at the Capitol, the lawmakers described it as a "deadly mistake" and a "self-inflicted public safety crisis".

Penzone, who wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post last week on the subject, said the threat of the printable firearms wouldn't come from typical consumers, who already have options for lawfully obtaining guns. "Yet that's exactly what the Trump administration is allowing". "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.

White House spokesman Hogan Gidley on Tuesday declined to reveal Trump's stance on 3D gun-printing, but he added it is illegal to own or make a wholly plastic gun, including any made with a 3D printer. "The administration supports this almost two-decade old law".

State officials say they've stopped a company that makes 3D downloadable guns from making them internet-accessible in Pennsylvania and from uploading new files.

"I intend to litigate", he told the magazine. "We have the right to share it".

The injunction comes a day before it was set to become legal for 3D printable gun designs to be distributed online. The site had 10 firearms and weapons components with downloadable digital files. Critics say it open up a Pandora's box of what they call ghost guns. Before the settlement with the Trump administration, Wilson had lost in both district and appellate court.

But as explained in today's court filings, publication of those computer files would still violate New Jersey law.

"People think that 3D printers are these magic machines that can make anything like a Star Trek replicator". The guns are commonly referred to as "ghost guns" and can not be traced.

The firearms, including AR-15-style semi-automatic rifles, were fashioned from kits purchased online, according to police. In June, the State Department unexpectedly ended its legal battle with Wilson, meaning he can share any blueprints he has.

Wilson said in an online video that the blueprints were downloaded more than 400,000 times before they were taken down in 2013.

"It's certainly a huge global problem, particularly given that many other countries have much stronger gun laws than in America", Lowy said. "It's going to make it easier for felons and fugitives who are deemed too unsafe to have guns to get guns".
