Jacksonville printing company concerned about 3D printed guns

Nine states are suing the Trump administration to stop 3D-printed guns

He also said he was looking into the issue and had spoken to the NRA, which has not taken a public stance on this issue since a nonprofit posted downloads for such guns online on Friday. "If people have the ability to download these guns arbitrarily, the danger to the public is going to be vast", Best said.

The company behind the plans, Texas-based Defense Distributed, had reached a settlement with the federal government in June allowing it to make the plans for the guns available for download.

Gun control advocates welcomed the federal court's temporary restraining order against Defense Distribution. When the case was finally settled in June, the agency said the decision was made in the interests of the security and foreign policy of the United States and in consultation with the Justice Department.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump himself commented on the issue on Twitter. "The files are in the public domain you can not take them back", Mr. Wilson said during an interview for "CBS This Morning".

On the company's website, people can download plans to make more advanced guns with metal parts from the comfort of their own home.

In a letter, 15 veterans on the council called on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to step in and block blueprints to manufacture the guns from being posted online, which is slated to start Wednesday.

Chris Knox, communications director for The Firearms Coalition, a gun-rights group, called the Liberator handgun a "very crude. zip gun" and said the growing debate over 3D printed guns was an overreaction.

Gottlieb says the settlement came down after the U.S. State Department realized they couldn't win the case in court because of a First Amendment violation.

Trump's tweet follows the filing of a joint lawsuit by nine states and the District of Columbia to block the release of 3D blueprints from Cody Wilson, a well-known creator of 3D gun designs, who won permission from the State Department to post schematics for homemade firearms, the New York Times reports. "Because of Attorney General Ferguson's lawsuit, a federal judge has put this administration's risky plan on hold and has taken a responsible step to protect law enforcement, public safety, and our national security".

The gun's components can be made with a printer that uses plastic instead of ink. "Already spoke to NRA, doesn't seem to make much sense!".

State officials say they've stopped a company that makes 3D downloadable guns from making them internet-accessible in Pennsylvania and from uploading new files. The Trump administration reversed course, agreeing to allow Defense Distributed to publish the tutorials online. The single-shot pistol was made nearly entirely out of ABS plastic - the same material Lego bricks are made from - and could be made on a 3D printer. "The age of the downloadable gun formally begins", the website states.

The company filed its own suit in Texas on Sunday, asserting that it is the victim of an "ideologically fuelled programme of intimidation and harassment" that violates the company's First Amendment rights. The company said it had also blocked access to users in New Jersey and Los Angeles.
