3D-printed gun blueprints blocked by United States judge

Access Blocked to Files for 3D Printing of Guns in Pennsylvania

When it comes to 3D printed gun, Dukes says his concern is practicality and safety.

Attorney General Grewal filed the lawsuit in Superior Court in Essex County, seeking a temporary restraining order against Defense Distributed and its founder, Cody Wilson.

"When it comes to something as basic as public safety, our State Department's saying, hey, this is a giveaway for terrorists", said Bob Ferguson, Washington Attorney General.

The widespread release of downloadable blueprints for 3D-printed firearms would not give way to a rise in undetectable plastic guns because there already is a law against them, the National Rifle Association claimed Tuesday.

Democrats tried to pass a bill Tuesday in the Senate to outlaw the sale of the blueprints and called on President Trump to issue an immediate executive order to stop the blueprints from going live.

"Well, fix this deadly mistake that once again your administration has made", Markey said.

The website says: "The age of the downloadable gun begins".

"Coming to a theater near you, coming to a school near you, these ghost guns are the new wave of American gun violence", said Connecticut Sen.

Gun control proponents are concerned that the weapons made with 3-D printers are untraceable, undetectable "ghost" firearms that pose a threat to global security.

Imran Khan to take oath as Pakistan Prime Minister on August 11
But to reach out and clasp it, he may seek a friendly push from a rival - the Bhutto clan's Pakistan People's Party (PPP). The economic vision of upcoming prime minister Imran Khan is alluring.

President Trump on Tuesday weighed in on 3D-printed guns - a day after eight USA states sued the government for an emergency ban on blueprints for the potentially untraceable weapons.

The settlement, which took gun-control advocates by surprise, allowed Defense Distributed to resume posting blueprints for the hard plastic guns at the end of July.

In a related development late on Tuesday, A USA federal judge in Seattle blocked the release of software that allows consumers to 3D-print firearms. He said on Twitter he was looking into the idea of a company providing plans to the public for printing guns, and he said it "doesn't seem to make much sense!".

The 53-second video showed a single shot being fired from the Liberator, a plastic handgun that, with the exception of its metal firing pin, was assembled from parts made with a 3-D printer, according to Defense Distributed.

An attorney for Defense Distributors told The Associated Press he doesn't know how many blueprints have been downloaded in the intervening days, but some news outlets say the online manuals have been downloaded thousands of times and posted elsewhere online.

The president responded through Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley, who told reporters: "In the United States, it's now illegal to own or make a wholly plastic gun of any kind, including those made on a 3D printer".

The Trump administration issued a decision in June that allows for the online publishing of instructions for 3D-printed guns.

A federal judge in Seattle blocked the release of 3D gun design plans Tuesday, a day before the schematics were set to be legally released to the Internet.

Wilson has argued that the restriction on his company violates its First Amendment rights.
