Judge blocks publication of plans for 3D printed plastic guns

President TrumpDonald John TrumpClinton maxes out to 19 Democratic House candidates Tucker Carlson slams immigrant lawyer as "citizen of country controlled by conquistadors" Trump highlights praise from judge on reuniting families his administration divided MORE tweeted Tuesday morning that he was "looking into" the issue and that the 3D printing of guns "doesn't make much sense". He has been a staunch supporter of gun rights and has repeatedly said that he is the best friend of the National Rifle Association, which contributed about $30 million to his presidential campaign.

"Proliferation of untraceable, undetectable 3D-printed guns is a threat to our public safety", Swanson said. "Already spoke to NRA, doesn't seem to make much sense!".

Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone said allowing the distribution of designs to create guns with 3D printers would be an irresponsible action that couldn't be reversed.

In a ruling last week, a federal judge in Texas allowed Defense Distributed to publish the technical specifications online - despite appeals from many opponents, including former Rep.

Attorneys general from eight states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit on Monday in a last-ditch effort to stop further release of the designs. Lisa Murkowski tweeted, linking to a news story on the guns.

It is - simply - insane to give criminals the tools to build untraceable, undetectable 3D printed guns at the touch of a button. New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) on Tuesday also issued a cease-and-desist order against the man who was scheduled to post them online.

A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order to block the online publication of 3D-printed gun blueprints.

The plastic weapons are untraceable, often undetectable and deadly. 3D printers turn digital files into three-dimensional objects by successively laying down thin layers of plastic until the object is created.

"Some people might be scared of it just by the sound of it, but its not a big deal", said Mark Serbu, a Tampa-based gun manufacturer.

The second measure is meant to ensure that even guns primarily made of plastic can be discovered by metal detectors.

Senator Mike Lee, Republican from Utah, blocked a Democratic request to bring the bill straight to the Senate floor, citing First Amendment free speech concerns. They don't have magazines that allow the usual nine or 15 rounds to be carried; instead, they usually hold a bullet or two and then must be manually loaded afterward. They add that 3-D printing technology can be very costly. Under that agreement, Defense Distributed will be able to post downloadable instructions for 3D-printable guns starting Wednesday, making such firearms available to anyone with the right machine and materials. State Department officials said the plans violated USA export laws.

The Trump administration had settled a five-year legal fight by permitting the company to publish its website Defcad - which founder Cody Wilson envisioned as a WikiLeaks for home-made firearms called "ghost guns".

The lawsuit also says the settlement infringes on states' rights to regulate firearms, therefore violating the 10th Amendment.
