3D-printed gun blueprints blocked by U.S. judge

3D-printed gun blueprints blocked by U.S. judge

A federal judge in Seattle has blocked the online distribution of blueprints for 3D guns.

"This is a tremendous win for public safety and common sense", Shapiro said in the release.

The Jacksonville Public library also offers 3D printing services, but according to the library's website, you're not allowed to print anything unsafe, harmful or risky.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders elaborated Wednesday, saying the administration's Justice Department had acted on its own in granting Wilson permission to publish the blueprints on his Defcad website - settling a five-year legal battle.

Avery Gardiner, co-president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence called the restraining order "a strong step and a clear victory for the entire gun safety movement" in a statement.

A USA gun rights advocate began gearing up for a legal fight Wednesday to be able to publish online blueprints for 3D-printed firearms, as the White House signaled support for a federal judge's decision to block the venture. The federal government successfully argued that the manuals violate firearm export laws before two federal judges.

AFP was able to download two files from the website yesterday, though it had some technical glitches and was hard to access.

Defense Distributed and its founder Cody Wilson, a self-declared anarchist, argued that access to the online blueprints is guaranteed under First and Second Amendment rights which confer the right to free speech and to bear arms. But federal courts have disagreed. This has been winding its way through the courts for a few years now, but a judge has never actually ruled on whether or not this is legal.

At least one Republican also expressed concern. Last month, Los Angeles police showcased an arsenal of such weapons seized from gang members.

Trump tweeted that he has already spoken with the National Rifle Association about the downloadable directions a Texas company wants to provide for people to make 3D-printed guns. Wilson's website also features blueprints for the AR-15.

After the judge's decision, Defense Distributed's website still had a large message promoting the August 1 download date.

"They are undetectable, they are untraceable", said Sen. "And so I imagine there will be many conversations held".
