Nearly half dozen states join forces to stop production of 3D printed guns.

Next, they’ll be 3D printing rocket launchers.

Nearly half the states joined a series of efforts Monday to block a Texas man from offering instructions online for making plastic guns using 3-D printers.

“These downloadable guns are unregistered and very difficult to detect, even with metal detectors, and will be available to anyone regardless of age mental health, or criminal history,” said Bob Ferguson, Washington’s attorney general.

His counterparts from Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Pennsylvania joined in preparing to file a lawsuit in federal court, seeking to stop the website from making the instructions available.

Cody Wilson of Austin began posting the directions over the weekend, after the federal government dropped its opposition and settled a lawsuit that prevented him from making the files available for download. When fed to a 3-D printer, they allow a user to make the parts necessary for assembling fully functioning handguns or rifles.

Under the Obama administration, the State Department sued Wilson, saying his plans would violate laws against exporting firearms technology by putting the instructions into the hands of hostile forces or terrorists.

When the Trump Administration took power they determined that it stepped on Wilson’s rights, so they stopped fighting his lawsuit.

However I think in his zeal to undo all things Obama, Trump did not think this one through, because he tweeted this out just this morning. 


You know the NRA might actually side with the gun control crowd on this one since they mostly represent the needs of the gun manufacturers and being able to make your own gun by yourself might cut into their profit margin. 

Personally, I have no idea how anyone thinks that allowing people to make their own guns out of material that can easily be smuggled through metal detectors is a good plan. 

I mean, seriously?

    OT?

    “The boy’s parents, Veronique De La Rosa and Leonard Pozner, have had to move seven times since their son was killed in the 2012 mass shooting at his elementary school after Jones claimed they were “crisis actors,” or people who act like victims of a tragedy to achieve a political end.

    In the case of Sandy Hook, the “end” these “actors” would be achieving is gun control — but as the Pozner-De La Rosa family and others are arguing in multiple lawsuits, they have been defamed and further victimized by Jones’ ”
    ” Jones and his attorneys said they’re seeking the hefty court costs under the Texas Citizens Participation Act because the family has taken measures “to silence those who openly oppose their very public ‘herculean’ efforts to ban the sale of certain weapons, ammunition and accessories, to pass new laws relating to gun registration and to limit free speech.””Pozner got an Infowars video taken down from YouTube and in retaliation, Jones “went on an angry rant” about the victim’s father “for nearly an hour.” The host then showed the audience “personal information and maps to addresses associated” with the family.”

    The moron had to ask the NRA? He can’t figure out this one by himself, maybe they need to tell him that he won’t be safe at his rallies because the guns won’t be detected, that should help him decide since it involves HIM.

    U.S. judge halts 3-D printed gun blueprints hours before planned release

    A U.S. judge on Tuesday blocked the planned release of blueprints for 3-D printed guns hours before they were set to hit the internet, siding with several states that sued to halt publication of designs to make weapons that security screening may not detect.

    U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik in Seattle said the blueprints’ publication could cause irreparable harm to U.S. citizens. The decision blocked a settlement President Donald Trump’s administration had reached with a Texas-based company, which initially said it planned to put files online on Wednesday.

    But Josh Blackman, a lawyer for the company Defense Distributed, said during Tuesday’s hearing that blueprints had already been uploaded to the firm’s website on Friday.

    The publication of those files is now illegal under federal law, Lasnik said.

      From what i saw on the news,they were up on the Internet early,so the criminals and terrorists including domestic already have the instructions.

      The anarchist that thinks this is his first amendment right of free speech is now working on “make at home” your own metal gun or AK47!

      And the moron trump doesn’t know what to think,hope he doesn’t burn out his two tiny brain cells mulling it over.
