AG sues to bar online 3D printer gun plans

Access To 3-D Printable Guns Blocked In Pennsylvania

A lawsuit filed Monday by Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson is challenging the Trump administration's decision to allow the release of blueprints for 3D-printed guns, saying the move would provide broad unregulated access to risky weapons.

News Talk 870 describes Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson as "gleefully" preparing to add his name to the list of AGs suing Wilson. In the meantime, Wilson has reportedly been stockpiling new weapon designs, as well as working on a computer-controlled mill known as the Ghost Gunner that can automatically make functional AR-15 rifle parts out of a block of aluminum.

Politicians across the country argue this is a matter of public safety.

"I have a question for the Trump Administration: Why are you allowing unsafe criminals easy access to weapons?"

"The harm to Pennsylvanians would have been immediate and irreversible", Shapiro said in a statement. "These downloadable guns are unregistered and very hard to detect, even with metal detectors, and will be available to anyone regardless of age, mental health or criminal history".

The groups had attempted to intervene after the Trump administration came to a settlement with the company to legally publish gun blueprints online.

Shapiro says he, his legal team, the governor and state police will continue to seek a preliminary and permanent injunction against Defense Distributed's plans to make its 3-D gun files available online.

"Federal law requires rational decision making, the Trump administration doesn't do that", Ferguson said. "Enjoy your weekend", tweeted DefDist founder Cody Wilson in the aftermath of the ruling.

They say they are going to a bar across town, and one of the women tells Gargac she has a crush on a friend she's going to meet. But the company did tell CNN its community guidelines "do not allow people to share content that invades others' privacy".

Wilson was quick to hail the move as step toward victory in his broader campaign to sabotage US gun control efforts.

"The Wilson settlement must not go forward".

"All this Parkland stuff, the students, all these dreams of "common sense gun reforms"? No". "The American people have the unquestionable right to access this information". "No amount of petitions or die-ins or anything else can change that". They also argue that the settlement violates the Tenth Amendment by infringing on states' rights to regulate firearms.

At the hearing, Defense Distributed agreed to block Pennsylvania IP addresses for a few days until a more formal hearing could be held.

The letter that Defense Distributed received from New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal threatened legal action if Defense Distributed released the files. "All actions contemplated by Defense Distributed are fully protected by the First Amendment, and [Grewal's] attempts to prevent such actions constitute an unconstitutional prior restraint and otherwise violate the United States Constitution and the New Jersey Constitution".

"Washington has a robust regulatory system meant to keep firearms out of the hands of unsafe individuals", says the announcement from Ferguson's office.

US District Judge Robert Pitman in Austin, Texas denied the request the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety and the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence at a hearing.
